Kim Seung-gi of Goyang Carrot, a professional basketball team looking for a new owner due to financial difficulties at the parent company, had a calm expression.
Carrot will play the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league home game against Suwon KT at Goyang Gymnasium on the 10th.
Manager Kim Seung-gi, who met with the reporters before the game, said, “The salary has all come in.” “We just have to do what we have to do. There will be. The players have come this far by overcoming bad situations without being shaken.”
Carrot was founded by Day One Sports, which is co-directed by former national team coach Heo Jae, the “basketball president,” after taking over the Goyang Orion professional basketball team after the end of last season.
As Day One Sports attracted Carrot Insurance as a naming sponsor, the club name became Carrot.
However, as the parent company, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, is suffering from financial difficulties such as delayed payment of employee wages and delays in subcontracting, and recently entered court receivership, support for the basketball team has become virtually impossible.
Day One Sports failed to pay salaries on time for the players, coaches, secretariat staff and staff this month as well as last month.
Despite various noises, Carrot is currently in 5th place (20 wins and 19 losses) this season.
Manager Kim said, “The players are also struggling without members. Without mercenaries, all teams are difficult. We lost 5 times in a row under bad circumstances, but we made it to the top with 5 consecutive wins.” 온라인카지노
He added, “It’s because the players did well. He listened to the coach well. If the players were agitated and just let it go, we couldn’t do this. The players listened to the coach well and worked hard in a difficult situation.”

Director Kim, who said that CEO Huh is working hard to find a new owner for the club, said, “He tells us not to be shaken and not to worry,” and “we just have to do what we have to do.”
In order to advance to the 6th round playoffs (PO), the result of the 7th place KT (17-22 losses) on this day is important.
Coach Kim said, “The height is inferior. The match against Seoul SK, Ginseng Corporation, and KT, which are always strong, was difficult. Luckily, I shot well and won.” expected
In response, KT coach Seo Dong-cheol said, “I think the pressure is too severe,” and “I will try as hard as possible using the height.”
