Bang Seong-yoon (40, 193cm) caught two rabbits: a championship and an MVP in his first Korea Tour this season. I heard his story, from the joy of winning the championship to his generous teachings for his juniors.
The 1st Seoul Tournament of KBA 3×3 KOREA TOUR 2023 was held on the 16th at the plaza in front of Seoul Newspaper (Seoul Madang). The preliminary round was held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 15th due to rain, but the final round was held outdoors as planned.
Hanul Construction, which was placed in Group C of the Korea League men’s division, safely passed the preliminary round held at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium and visited the square to participate in the final. Hanul Construction became the main character of the 1st Seoul Tournament confidently by defeating prominent teams in the finals and defeating Inje from the sky (17-11) in the finals.
Bang Seong-yoon of Hanul Construction said, “It seems like we won the championship in 4 years (laughs). Up until now, if everything seemed to be going well, something always happened, so it was regrettable. I am very happy that I won like this from the beginning this season. I would like to express my gratitude to CEO Kim Soo-young of Hanul Construction, who must have suffered the most.”
From the quarterfinals to the finals, Bang Seong-yoon took the lead in raising the atmosphere as his eldest brother. He embraced his teammates’ mistakes warmly, and went ahead and praised good plays. Regarding this, Bang Seong-yoon said, “It’s because I’m the eldest (laughs). Kkondae hyung, thank you to the team members who followed me well. There are many games left this season, so I hope you don’t get hurt and have more fun in the game.”
It is a 3×3 that gets hotter and hotter. More and more professional basketball players are knocking on the 3×3 door, and the level of the players is also rising. As the level rises, interest in it is also increasing.
Bang Seong-yoon said, “It’s because I have low stamina (laughs), but everyone’s abilities are improving. It feels good to see that the level of 3×3 is rising. It is also a new feeling to see many faces of junior players who were former players here again. There must be a big age difference… I also feel that I need to work harder,” he said.
As a result of the growing heat, 3×3 was adopted as a national sports event for the first time. Upon hearing this news, Bang Seong-yoon said, “Of course, I am willing to participate, saying it will be an opportunity. The National Sports Festival is the biggest sports event in Korea. Apparently, the current team is related to the Chungbuk budget, so it seems that they will participate there. I feel again that interest in 3×3 is getting hotter.”
It is Bang Seong-yoon who is also working hard to support and teach his juniors. He also told a heartwarming anecdote about it. Bang Seong-yoon said, “Last time, I watched Jung Joon-won, who is now at KGC, shoot. He came and asked me, and he taught me a lot about shooting, thinking that my junior would do well. It led to good results, so I feel good too. Not only ordinary people, but also elite athletes are taught. I feel proud when I see the process of improving while teaching,” he said with a proud smile. 온라인카지노
