Coach Wi visited the interview room after 안전놀이터the championship ceremony. He talked a lot and mentioned two people when asked to pick the players he is most grateful for. Their names were Kim Jong-un and Park Hye-jin.
Director Wi said, “Personally, the thing I am most grateful for is (Kim) Jeong-eun. She was old and in poor health. Still, the player who held the center of the team was Jeongeun. He said thank you very much.”
In fact, Kim Jong-un showed off his longevity by recording 18 points and 11 rebounds along with 5 3-pointers in the 3rd game following 3 consecutive 3-pointers in the first game of the championship match. He was also dedicated to defense and rebounding and led the team to victory.
Director Wi talked about Park Hye-jin after Kim Jong-un. In fact, in the championship match, Park Hye-jin played a role that was clearly different from her past and showed a flawless and perfect appearance.
She, of course, did not show off her explosive scoring ability like she did in the past. However, she showed off 100% of her capabilities by managing the game, assisting, and even defending Lee So-hee.
Director Wi said, “(Park) Hye-jin’s physical condition was not very good. She said, “She had a lot of trouble herself,” and “she has been together for over 10 years, and she has no other player who sacrifices as much as Hyejin.”
At the same time, she said, “Hye-jin is a player who works hard enough to convey the message that even if she herself cannot run, she must run. While recruiting (Kim) Danbi felt burdened, it was also difficult to watch Hyejin in this championship match. She is a player I can trust and trust. As captain, he led the players really well. She is a player, but I want to express my respect.”
