I am the biggest beneficiary of Avarientos’ recruitment as a player with a strong defense sticks to Avarientos.”
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis won 82-75 in the 2022-2023 STK A-Dot Pro Basketball Changwon LG home game held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 24th, winning three consecutive wins. Hyundai Mobis, which reached 20 wins (14 losses) for the third time this season, caught up with LG (20 wins, 13 losses) in second place by half a game.
Gage Prim (24 points, 10 rebounds) made it 20-10, and Seo Myung-jin scored 14 points to help the team win. In particular, Seo Myung-jin succeeded in a 3-point shot that put a wedge in the game with 1 minute and 12 seconds left. 스포츠토토
When Seo Myung-jin stood out in two consecutive games following a head-to-head confrontation with Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu on the 22nd, Hyundai Mobis coach Dong-Hyun Cho said, “When you play well, you do well with aggressiveness. The talent you have is good, but it’s a matter of activeness. Sometimes too passive. Sometimes I don’t even see the rim. He told me to shoot 10 shots and come out because it is okay to lose the game. Seo Myung-jin instills confidence in him to be active mentally rather than his skills.”
Seo Myung-jin said, “It’s fortunate that we finished well in a difficult schedule. It’s a more important game today (24th), and I’m satisfied with catching an important game. The players on the bench outside the court, Kim Young-hyun, Shin Min-seok, and Kim Tae-wan are so good that I really want to call these players by name in today’s interview.” I thought it was important to protect my pride.”
With the recruitment of Ronjay Avarientos, Seo Myung-jin relieves a little of the burden of game management and demonstrates more scoring power.
Seo Myung-jin said, “To be honest, there is not much difference. On the court, Avarientos, a good ball handler resource, came in, and each plays the role of number 1 (point guard). Even Lee Woo-seok has good attack power. All three attack, so I manage my stamina and focus on defense.”
Seo Myung-jin, who is performing better than last season, said, “If reading the game has changed, it has changed. I think I came to read things like where is my weakness and where is my opportunity at this time. I learned the timing of the shot while learning, so I became more confident in shooting.” I trained with coach Yang Dong-geun, who was good at 2-on-2 play, and raised the parabola. If coach Yang Dong-geun looks at the center’s fingertips and shoots high, the center can go in and grab the rebound even if it doesn’t go in. I learned a lot about shooting with (defense) attached, so I came up with many ways to shoot.”
When asked about his shooting form similar to that of coach Yang Dong-geun, Seo Myung-jin said, “Coach Dong-geun Yang teaches Wooseok and me how to shoot a lot. A 3-point shot is a set shot, not a jump, but a mid-range shot is shot while managing the ball while jumping. I learned that,” he said. “I think it will be similar if we fix the habit of dropping the ball. In a two-on-two play, I can see that because I have the mindset of shooting, not the mindset of passing first.”
Seo Myung-jin showed off a pass that led to Henry Sims’ alley-oop dunk.
Seo Myung-jin said, “It starts to show. Compared to last year, I have more time to spare, so I attack while watching the opponent’s movements. I know how to pass and how to shoot.”
Regarding his physical condition, Seomyeon-jin said, “My muscle mass was 42% at the end of last season, but now it maintains 44-45%. In the offseason, it was 46%. Now, I lost weight because I lost body fat, but I maintain my muscle mass,” he said. At first, there was a feeling of heaviness, but now I’m out of it and I’m in good shape because it suits my body. It was heavy in the beginning, but it’s okay now.”
Director Cho Dong-hyun points out Avarientos’ habit of pulling the ball. Seo Myung-jin, who has to work with Avarientos, said, “There is no tricky part at all. We believe in Avarientos. When Avarientos doesn’t work out, he helps me by the side, and he tells me that we will walk on a screen to trigger a switch and match him with a player with a weak defense.” He is the biggest beneficiary of Entos’ recruitment. I should have helped more by the side, but I’m sorry I couldn’t help, and I’m trying to help.”
