Changwon LG made a trade once after the opening of the regular season of the ‘2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball’. Tall forward Lim Dong-seop (33), who was active in Seoul Samsung, and Choi Seung-wook (29), an active forward, were exchanged. It was unexpectedly accepted that LG, which has been showing good results this season and has abundant resources, recruited Lim Dong-seop, whose performance has declined significantly over the past few seasons. Moreover, it was unexpected that Choi Seung-wook, who had just returned from his military service, was his trade partner.
At the time, LG coach Cho Sang-hyun briefly explained the reason for the recruitment. He said, “(Im) Dong-seop is not going to be used for 30 minutes in every game. He runs short and only needs to put in a 3-pointer or two. It would be nice if he could do better, but he is satisfied even if he fulfills that role faithfully.”
Im Dong-seop, 198 cm tall, is a forward who can play outside despite his tall stature. However, with a career high in the 2016-2017 season right before military enlistment, he faltered after helping the team advance to the championship game. While playing for Samsung this season, he only played an average of 16 minutes, recording 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists.
Im Dong-seop, who had been quiet even after moving to LG, showed off his presence in an away match against Seoul SK on the 1st. He played 30 minutes and scored 11 points, including 3 3-pointers, helping LG to come from behind to win. In particular, in the 3rd and 4th quarters, when LG pursued, his outer guns intensively exploded. As coach Cho wanted, Lim Dong-seop’s three-storey, which came out at an important point, became a great driving force for LG.
LG, which is in second place, has gradually narrowed the gap with the leader Anyang KGC, and has reached a situation where it can even surpass the first place. Coach Cho does not reveal his greed for ranking, but LG players are not hiding their motivation to challenge for first place. To that extent, LG’s recent performance and momentum are good. I wonder if Lim Dong-seop, who is aiming for another leap from the new nest with the transfer, can use the game against SK on the 1st as a stepping stone to successfully rebound and give wings to LG, which is challenging for the championship. 카지노사이트
