Veteran forward Kim Jong-yeon of the Bucheon Hana OneQ of the women’s professional basketball league moved into second place in career scoring in the regular season with her performance against Busan BNK on the 25th.

Kim’s career scoring total in the regular season rose to 7,874 points.

Coincidentally, the third-place finisher in that category was on the opposing bench. BNK coach Byun Yeon-ha (7,863 points).

“I didn’t really think about it (the record), but my acquaintances talked about it a lot. Coach Byun (of BNK) and Coach Park Jeong-ha (of BNK) were the seniors I’ve always looked up to since I was a kid,” Kim said after the game.

“It means a lot that I broke the record in front of my younger sister. I want to praise myself for that,” she laughed.

Kim Jong-un, who entered the professional ranks in 2006, is already 36 years old.

“Who really said that there is no business before the years,” Kim laughed, “It’s definitely hard (to play), and I can feel that my stamina has dropped a lot. I want to be strong in the fourth quarter, but I can’t.”

Drafted by Hana OneQ’s predecessor Shinsegae with the No. 1 overall pick in the rookie draft, Kim had only played for one team until 2017. After playing for Asan Woori Bank until last season, Kim returned to his hometown team for this season.

Hana OneQ, which Kim joined, finished last season with a record of 6 wins and 24 losses.

The team lost 16 times before posting two wins last season. This season’s record (2-5) is better.

Kim said, “I hope everyone doesn’t forget about last season, when we finished in last place. Other teams used to call us ‘one-win sacrifice’ when we played Hanawankyu last season, but I told the players that we shouldn’t let our opponents feel that way this season,” 카지노사이트 Kim said, “and I think we’re halfway there.”

“When I was at Woori Bank, there were games where it was so easy that Kim Dan-bi played for 20 minutes without breaking a sweat since she joined (Woori Bank),” he said, adding, “It’s hard (here), but I have a role to play. I want to win more games like this so that the players can know the ‘taste of victory’.”

Kim also urged Hana One Q’s mainstays, Shin Ji-hyun and Yang In-young, to continue their efforts.

“It’s getting a little old for me to be interviewing these honored athletes, and I shouldn’t be the centerpiece (of Hana One Q),” Kim said, adding, “I want more junior players like Shin Ji-hyon and Yang In-young to come to this event.”

“They should be the ones to carry the weight. “It may sound cold, but I want them to think about the first and second option players on other teams and build their pride,” he added.

Hana OneQ coach Kim Do-wan said, “Kim Jong-un went through a difficult process and deliberately chose a difficult team to come here,” adding, “It’s really something to celebrate that he set such a record. As a coach, I’m sorry and grateful to him.”

He also praised the team, saying, “He is creating a foothold for the team to go up step by step.” 바카라사이트
