Coach Kim Sang-sik of professional basketball Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation decorated the first season of the command tower with a splendid victory.
Ginseng Corporation won the 7th game of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship (Best of 7) against Seoul SK held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 7th, winning 100-97 after an extended bloody battle.
With a series record of 4 wins and 3 losses, it regained the top two seasons after the 2020-2021 season.
Coach Kim Sang-sik, who took the helm this season, was thrilled by leading the team to win the championship in the first championship match of their coaching career.
Coach Kim said, “I didn’t give up until the end. I’m thrilled, and I’m really grateful to the players.”
He continued, “I had a lot of worries and troubles. When coach Kim Seung-gi and Jeon Seong-hyun (Lee Sang-hyun) left and were evaluated as mid-tier, I honestly felt bad.” ” he added.
He also added, “I gained confidence as the race was good in the beginning. There was a crisis in the regular league, but I instilled in the players that ‘we are a strong team, so it’s okay’.”
Director Kim, the son of former KBL President Young-ki Kim, worked as a leader for a long time, but he did not achieve any significant results in the professional world until he took over the Ginseng Corporation.
Except for the 2008-2009 season when he served as the Daegu Orions command tower, most of them served as coaches or acting managers. Orions, who was promoted from acting manager to manager, also failed to complete a season due to poor performance.
He has served as a national team coach, but in January 2021, he resigned from his position lonely after receiving uncomfortable attention from KBL and the club regarding the selection of national players.
Director Kim said, “Until Ginseng Corporation called me, I thought that basketball was no longer meant to be. I went to Jeju Island and had time to organize it, and thankfully the opportunity came.” I did, but I came this far. I am grateful that the club created good conditions.”
Coach Kim’s unique ‘soft leadership’ is one of the secrets that led to the unified victory. 토스카지노
After taking office, he listened to the opinions of the players and encouraged teamwork by inducing communication between the players. At the same time, he gave the squad freedom by reducing team training and increasing individual training.
However, while sticking to the existing strategy, there were some areas where we struggled in short-term battles. Coach Seung-tae Choi and coach Seong-min Cho supplemented coach Kim’s shortcomings.
