Technical support issues
Changwon LG won 95-46 in a practice match against Myongji University at Changwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 16th.
Yang Joon-seok (180cm, G), who wore the LG uniform as the No. 1 overall player in the 2022 KBL domestic rookie draft, was put into the practice game. He showed improved performance compared to last season in various fields such as game management, breakthrough, and assist.
Yang Jun-seok suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury when he was in college. After joining LG, he raised his sense of play in the D-League. Yang Joon-seok, who gained a sense in the D League, finished his debut season with an average of 2.6 points, 0.6 rebounds, and 0.9 assists in 18 regular league games in the 2022-2023 season.
Yang Joon-seok said, "When I think about last season, I think my physical condition was not ready. So my performance didn't come out as I expected. "I'm focusing on improving my physical condition to show better performance this season," he said, looking back on last season.
As mentioned above, Yang returned to the court after a major injury. Although it was his first return in eight months, expectations for Yang Joon-seok, the "first-ranked rookie," must have been high.
However, Yang Joon-seok said, "There was no impatience (to show). It was so good just to be able to play the game. I was grateful. Since I had that much time off, I will prepare well during the off-season. "I want to help the team in the 2023-2024 season," he replied firmly.
"It was my first season since my injury. While there were people who cheered, there seemed to be a lot of people who doubted. But for those who supported me, I want to show good performance. To do so, I think I have to prepare well," he said, vowing to improve his performance.
Meanwhile, Yang Jun-seok invested the vacation he got after the end of the 2022-2023 season in basketball. I have experienced advanced basketball in America. Yang Joon-seok said, "I've wanted to go to the U.S. since I was young. While I was in touch with (Lee)Hyunjoong, I happened to have a good opportunity. I learned a lot of passion for basketball in America. "I think it will be a great help in preparing for this season," he said positively.
Finally, "I didn't have a big goal, so I didn't have any regrets." In fact, my goal was to play and to help the team. But I was sorry that I couldn't. Because I didn't get what I expected from myself, I was more motivated and motivated. "I think that feeling will be of greater help in the upcoming season," he said, referring to his changed mindset from last year.
