KGC coach Cho Seong-min was a star who played an active role in his team and national team, such as being called ‘Joseon’s shooter’ during his active career. He did not win the championship as a player, but he finally resolved his resentment in his first season after becoming a leader.
Anyang KGC won the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball Championship Game 7 against Seoul SK held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 7th, 100-97 after a close match that went to overtime. KGC recorded a series record of 4 wins and 3 losses, achieving its 4th victory in its career. The combined championship was the second following the 2016-2017 season.
The KGC coaching staff, which consists of head coach Kim Sang-sik, coach Choi Seung-tae, and Cho Seong-min, was the first win they experienced after starting as pros. Coach Seong-min Cho, who had a splendid career as a player but had no championship experience, tasted the championship in his debut season as a leader and relieved his resentment.
Coach Seong-min Cho said, “I am so thrilled. His last remaining wish was to obtain a championship ring. Even though I am not a player, I am happy to be able to win like this as a coaching staff. Since I started playing basketball, I have been running with only one championship ring in mind. It feels really good,” he said.
Coach Cho Seong-min also said, “From the beginning of the game, the players were in good condition. I thought that I would be able to gain a physical advantage in the second half while watching him not be pushed back in the physical fight.”
In the 2006-2007 season, when coach Cho Seong-min made his debut at Busan KTF (now Suwon KT), he even stepped on the stage of the championship match. It is not easy for a rookie to play an active role in the championship match, but this was the first and last championship match coach Cho Seong-min played on active duty.
KT achieved good results during the heyday of coach Cho Seong-min, including runner-up in the regular league in the 2009-2010 season and championship in the 2010-2011 season, but failed to advance to the championship match every time. “I always thought that winning won’t be easy. There were opportunities, but the team hit the wall every time.” Coach Seong-min Jo added, “After coming to KGC, I met good coaches, coaches, and players and was able to win the championship.”바카라사이트
There was also a word emphasized, “I really want to say this.” KGC is a team that Coach Seong-Min Cho had no ties with during his active career, but after the end of last season, KGC newly formed the coaching staff.
Coach Cho Seong-min said, “Thank you to the coach and coach. The coaches were younger than other teams, but the club supported them physically and mentally. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the club.”
