Korean Basketball League 2012-2013 Season

Exciting things afoot for the league. For starters, the competitive landscape will shift
once again as a new batch of rookies will make their way to their teams. Most notably is Kim Si-Rae,
the first overall pick in the 2012 KBL Draft and he will join Ulsan Mobis Phoebus and be
mentored by superstar, Yang Dong-Geun. Another worth mentioning is Kim Seung-Won who was drafted
third overall by the Goyang Orions, Kim will join Choi Jin-Soo to what looks like a promising
frontcourt for the future.

Free agents like
LG's Moon Tae-Young, Samsung's Lee Seung-Jun and KCC's Jeon Tae-Pong will be in new teams
soon. Then the two import per team quota is back.

As for my Changwon LG Sakers, this is the start of a rebuilding phase. We lost Moon Tae-Young as that
void in the wing will not be filled up anytime soon. The Sakers also lost Park Hyung-Chul
for military service, joining the sharpshooting Ki Seung-Ho in the army.

One source of optimism lies with the rookies Cho Sang-Hyul and Park Rae-Hyun. Park's brother,
Park Chan-Hee will be entering the military after winning a championship with Anyang KGC.

Expect the Sakers to be bottom dwellers, if not the last team in the standings.

I would not mind a losing season for a rebuilding team. Eyes on the prize as they say. Maybe by
the 20133 KBL Draft, the Sakers will have the good fortune of drafting Kim Jong-Kyu.

Questions also aimed at Wonju Dongbu Promy like how much Kim Joo-Sung still has in the tank? Can the team overcome the absence of Yoon Ho-Young? As for Anyang KGC, can they repeat minus Park Chan-Hee? Moving past Jeonju KCC Egis, can a healthy Ha Seung-Jin tow them into the playoffs?

We'll find out.

Wonju Dongbu Promy forward Yoon Ho-Young was named 2011-2012 Most Valuable Player. I applaud the selection though he was competing with Anyang KGC's rookie sensation, Oh Se-Keun and Yoon's teammate, Kim Joo-Sung.

Oh Se-Keun's Rookie of the Year award surprised no one and he further cemented it with this KBL 2012 Finals MVP and his team winning the championship.

Anyang KGC won the 2011-2012 KBL Championships. Wonju Dongbu Promy won the regular season with the best record during the regular season. Wonju's Yoon Ho-Young won the regular season most valuable player. Anyang's Oh Se-Keun won the finals MVP and rookie of the year.

Rumors swirling that retired and former KBL All-Star Bang Sung-Yoon is making a comeback. Bang started training recently in the Samsung training facility in Seoul. He has been training with former national team teammate and current Samsung point guard Kim Seung-Hyun.

It is rumored that Samsung's management is evaluating the scenario of signing Bang to a contract.

Samsung Thunder veteran star Kim Seung-Hyun told Naver-sports that he welcomes the potential addition of Bang Sung-Yoon into the lineup.


http://jumpball.co.kr/jump_imgs/02/20111207/b_0.jpg

At this point, long term health is the question on Bang if he will be coming back and if the Thunder will sign him. Then again, Samsung has just lost bigman Lee Seung-Jun and would need every available talent they can field. Bang is a veteran that can still shoot. Though Bang has lost the athleticism that he once banked on, Bang could still contribute at this point. Again, provided if he is healthy and his legs could endure the rigors of the season.

Samsung Thunder guard Lee Jung-Suk has been rehabbing and working himself into form for the coming season. Lee ended his season early when he went down with an ACL injury. Lee is looking to comeback strong this season under new head coach Lee Sang-Min and manager Kim Dong-Kwang.


I expect Lee to start as the point guard while the veteran Kim Seung-Hyun could serve as backup. Eventually, both could be fielded at at the same time, but it is a gamble worth noting as Lee and Kim makes an undersized back-court.

At that setup, Kim will be point guard while Lee will play shooting guard.

The Sakers may as well pursuit Lee and arrange a trade with Goyang for Seo Jang-Hoon. Seo will provide the veteran leadership that the Orions will need for Choi Jin-Soo and rookie center Kim Seung-Won.

This solves the Sakers depth at power forward wherein Lee can play power forward as the Sakers are expected to add a center via the import market.

Lee Seung Jun adds front-court depth into Wonju Dongbu Promy and Lee's signing will have an implication on the second import that Wonju will sign. Perhaps it could be a guard. Jeon Tae-Pong adds firepower in Goyang's back-court. Jeon will allow Goyang to play more uptempo that will favor Choi Jin-Soo's mobility and athleticism.

Seo's retirement plan worries KBL

The Korean Basketball League (KBL) is facing a major task to unearth more talented players to maintain its popularity, as its hottest ticket, Seo Jang-hoon, announced he will retire next year.

The 37-year-old KT Sonicboom center said he plans to leave the game after the upcoming season that starts in the fall. During a press conference at KBL Center in Seoul, Monday, he opened his heart about his poor performances over the last season.

“I initially planned to retire after the last season when many misfortunes happened. However, I didn’t want to let the nightmarish memories of the season haunt me for the rest of my life,” Seo said. “I went through such a tough time. So, I really appreciate the team and the manager Jeon Chang-jin for the opportunity.”

It was also revealed in March that Seo and his wife, KBS presenter Oh Jung-yeon, are getting divorced. The high-profile couple wed in 2009 but there were soon reports of disharmony.

The news of the center’s retirement sounds alarm bells for the KBL, already suffering from a lack of superstars after Lee Sang-min, Moon Kyung-eun and Woo Ji-won retired two years ago. Seo has expressed concerns over the future of the KBL that is in need of an infusion of young blood.

“I think the two of the most noticeable players at this time of the league are Kim Seung-hyun and Kim Joo-sung. However, when I’m with them, people often ask me who they are. That shows how bad the situation is, regarding the fact that the old basketball stars like Lee Sang-min and Woo Ji-won drew fans wherever they went,” Seo said. “That is the current status of the KBL.”

The Sonicboom center added that KBL players should step up to promote the league, saying they have to get out of their comfort zone.

Along with other challenges such as the unexpected breakup of the Shinsegae Coolcat in the Women’s Korean Basketball League (WKBL) last month and the ET Land Elephants’ current bid to find a new owner, Korean basketball has entered a new era without the star draws it used to have.

The NBA in the United States also ran into a shortage of star power when Michael Jordan retired from the Washington Wizards in 2003. Shortly after, the NBA took serious steps to discover uncharted talent to maintain its popularity, which resulted in Kobe Bryant and LeBron James becoming the biggest stars of the next generation. The NBA continues to make efforts to find new faces. Most recently, the New York Knicks Jeremy Lin has gained a huge fame through successful marketing strategies.

Seo will leave an indelible mark on the KBL. He was the first player to score 10,000 points in the game against LG Sakers on Nov. 19. Considering his reputation, he showed lackluster performances last season with an average of 7.51 points and 2.9 rebounds in 35 games.

-KoreaTimes (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/sports/2012/05/136_111481.html)

After Seo Jang-Hoon, there is Kim Joo-Sung. We will have to wait for a few years more to see the youth bigmen prospects to mature and ofcourse playing in the KBL. Korea has a number of up and coming bigman that is quite unprecedented.

Lots of names from last season. I would prefer the Sakers bringing back Olumide Oyedeji. Us Sakers fans are impressed with his rebounding. Though he did not score much, that is because he rarely got the feed during the triangle as the Sakers have the mentality of passing to Moon Tae-Young. This time around, if Olumide is brought back, he will have the inside feed courtesy of the triangle offense.

MAJOR EDIT:

Out of the 500+ names, shortlisted into 243 names. A couple of names have played already in the KBL across seasons:

Lee Benson
Rodrige Benson
Odartey Blankson
Micah Brand

Jeonju KCC Egis center Ha Seung-Jin is getting married next month. Lately, Ha has been serving in the airforce and not in the national team. Next season, KCC Egis is counting on Ha to be healthy as last season, nagging injuries caused him an up and down road.

The offseason break away from basketball is a much welcome one as international competition has taken a toll on Ha Seung-Jin into his season play. Hopefully, his health has improved as he is carrying the team alone wherein Kang Byung-Hyun is still in the military and Jeon Tae-Pong now playing on another team.

I heard rumors that KCC Egis is looking for a stretch four power forward as their primary import and a back-up center as the second import.

After the Olympic Qualifying Tournament:

Yang Dong-Geun (Ulsan Mobis Phoebus)
Will be resting up and hopes to recover from his right hand injury. Yang needs rest as a large part of Ulsan's success still hinges on his health and production. He is expected to mentor Kim Si-Rae, the 2012 first pick overall in the KBL draft.

Kim Tae-Sol (Anyang KGC)
Kim will have to do more for this season if Anyang KGC hopes to repeat in their title defense. His teammate, Park Chan-Hee is off to the military. Kim is the best perimeter defender of the team.

Park Chan-Hee (Anyang KGC)
Military service. I will personally miss him.

Kim Sun-Hyung (Seoul SK Knights)
After a great rookie debut, Kim's focus is avoiding the sophomore slump. He will team up with another rookie: Cho Bok-Young, to carry the team. Alexander Johnson is expected to return.

Yoon Ho-Young (Wonju Dongbu Promy)
Military service. Wonju will miss his firepower.

Choi Jin-Soo (Goyang Orions)
Another sophomore looking to improve better. Choi is expected to play PF or SF as his teammate Kim Dong-Uk can rotate evenly as well. It will be interesting in how he will blend with rookie center Kim Seung-Won.

Lee Seung-Jun (Wonju Dongbu Promy)
Lee Seung-Jun wants a championship and he is not getting any younger. He will team-up with KBL legend, Kim Joo-Sung to add to Wonju's formidable front-court. Lee's fitness and overall excellence will be appreciated.

Kim Dong-Uk (Goyang Orions)
Should stay fit and healthy this summer. He and new teammate Jeon Tae-Pong are expected to mesh well with Choi Jin-Soo and rookie center Kim Seung-Won.

Yang Hee-Jong (Anyang KGC)
He does what he does best. Provide perimeter offense. A huge contributor to Anyang KGC's title defense.

Oh Sek-Eun (Anyang KGC)
Already the franchise player of Anyang, Oh needs to be healthy for another grueling season. He had a superb rookie debut, and is looking hungry for another KBL title. Will seek ankle treatment prior to the season.

Byun Hyun-Soo is becoming more vocal in terms of handling the team both on and off the floor. Two or three years from now, I can see Byun as the Sakers captain. In being a point guard, being assertive is a key quality. He used to be the silent and soft-spoken baby-faced type. Signs of maturity as the Sakers are rebuilding.

Salary varies a lot for local players. Established stars gets the maximum pay for a contract while the rest varies in figures and of qualifications. There are KBL players like Kim Joo-Sung that has a bigger pay compared to imports.

Foreign born Koreans will need to submit an application and a letter intent containing credentials and verification of his Korean ancestry to the KBL's board. Then that player must be drafted in a special draft for foreign born Koreans or half-Koreans.

I saw the highlights of the Goyang Orions - Wonju Dongbu Promy scrimmage. Jeon Tae-Pong looked healthy and it seems his quick first step is as lethal as ever. Penetrated at will and dished off six assists based on the comments section. Though the Orions is still far from the cohesion that they would want to be.

I think that the Orions will utilize a lot of high key attacks from Jeon that translates to instant offense based on Jeon's dribble penetration and ad-hoc passing to open shooters like Kim Dong-Uk and Choi Jin-Soo.

I LOVED Wes Simms and as a fan of a team that wasn't his I was surprised and happy when he got cut. Haynes is an interesting comparison to make. Why didn't he succeed in the league? I found Simms to be a really solid mid-range shooter but he's also very athletic and can dunk and cut in traffic well. He was a bit undersized for the Korean league but his defense was decent.

Wonju Dongbu Promy 66 Goyang Orions 82

Jeon Tae-Pong was the pace setter for this game: 15 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists.




Yeah so far we're terrible this year. Both our starting guards are out hurt and our incompetent coach has been using Lee Seung Joon horribly and is trying to implement some kind of zone defense that so far just leaves two or three players wide open every play. We've been trying to change foreigners since the draft and the ones we have now are way too small and need to be replaced.

Goyang actually brought Jeon Tae-Pong off the bench. Not sure if that's what they've been doing all season but I like it. They're starting guards are good enough to hang and then when they bring Jeon in there's a huge lift.

The team is composed of mostly 30 something players that are veterans and it seems are ripe for winning. While their rookie, Cha Bawee has shown that he can contribute right away.

Sad to see Busan Sonicboom KT with a 1-6 record. For the past two seasons, they have been winning. This season, they are just riding it out as for next season, they will have a new pair of young and promising bigman that they netted on the draft.

As for Jeonju KCC Egis, they need Ha Seung-Jin and Kang Byung-Hyun. Some westerners used to claim that KCC Egis will be fine even if Ha went down for the season as long as there is a foreign center to fit the hold. Now it is known as a false assumption.

So far so good for Kim Si-Rae, Yang Dong-Geun is mentoring him after all. Though Ulsan has been experimenting in fielding them both, but it has an awkward tune to it as both have yet to learn to play with each other's presence. Best course for now is to start Yang Dong-Geun and have Kim Si-Rae as back-up. The season is still a long way to go and Kim should have an increase in minutes as Ulsan needs to preserve Yang's health for the long run.

The defending champions, Anyang KGC is at 6-5. They need more rebounding and interior scoring, something that Oh Sek-Eun provided. Question now is how long can this team sustain minus their injured superstar.

At times, Juan Patillo is doing too much aggression and KGC becomes predictable. This is the Moon Tae-Young effect that happened a lot with the Changwon LG Sakers: Wing foreign player isolates and local players end up watching.

Lee Sang-Beom is in a crossroads right now. The rout from the Changwon LG Sakers game is a wake up call. Honeymoon phase for the defending champions is over at this point. Teams believe that KGC are not repeating, making them play better and sharper against KGC.

I remember a couple of double double games for Herbert Hill when he was still playing for the Incheon ET Land Elephants back in the 2010-11 KBL Season. Hill alongside local stars like Moon Tae-Jong and Seo Jang-Hoon were very productive and powered Incheon into the playoffs.

Silent creepers making their way up are Busan and Wonju Dongbu Prmy. Busan is slowly coming together with their mixture of veterans and youth. Cho Sung-Min is finding his range while the veterans are trusting the likes of Jang Jae-Suk inside the paint.

As for Wonju, the start of the season saw on how Kim Joo-Sung and Lee Seung-Jun adjusted in playing with each other. Both are willing to share the ball but it was on the defensive end where they struggled. Traditionally, Wonju plays a 1-4 floor denial zone but the arrival of Lee Seung-Jun moved Kim JS into the center and Lee SJ into a power forward. Kim JS is a much better perimeter defender compared to Lee SJ, who is more of an inside man to man defender. A 2-3 zone is more effective with both Kim JS and Lee SJ in tow.

The league leading Seoul SK Knights have booked a ticket to the 2013 KBL playoffs, ending a five year drought during the days of Bang Sung-Yoon. I am seeing a team with on-court and off-court cohesion that is similar to Anyang KGC's magical season last year.

Kim Min-Soo is healthy and have done more than score. We are seeing his passing facets and those timely down screens that frees up Kim Sun-Hyung for a scoring opportunity. SK has added a whole new facet in their floor spacing when Kim MS is playing center. Being able to declog the lane for Kim SH. Given Kim SH's speed, nimble driving abilities and the potent scoring as a guard in the shaded area, he resembles two KBL greats in Kang Byung-Hyun and Yang Dong-Geun. What's more, Kim is increasing his range and that works well with his dribbling abilities that has seen Kim adding a step-back jumper when he creates space. One more lacking in his arsenal is his tear drop shot, but he is working on it.

Park Sang-Oh has sacrificed a lot with his production but he does bring in the intangibles whether it be the timely pass or the weak-side screen that will free up a shooter like Joo He-Jeong. Park is a former KBL MVP back in the 2010-2011 season when he was still with Busan. He was the glue guy then and now, he is a vital cog that holds the team together.

Aaron Haynes is a scorer but in playing with SK, he has improved his off-ball movement as he is benefiting from the unselfish plays from the likes of Park Sang-Oh and Kim Sun-Hyung. When he is open, they give him the ball. Haynes has seen his shooting percentage increase due to him relying less on isolated scoring. He rotates well and cuts that makes the game much easier for him.

Rounding off the starting five is rookie Choi Bu-Kyong. A rookie with much more to absorb has been effective in rebounding as well as getting the timely passes for him to score on a dunk or lay-in. He cleans up boards and has a blue collar attitude.

As for the bench, unselfishness and playing with energy to keep pace with the starters has been a factor in SK's revival. SK is looking to win no less the biggest prize this season.

Samsung Thunder beats Busan Sonicboom KT 76-62. Samsung was steady and consistent in the game but Busan managed only 9 points in the first quarter and never threatened. The veteran, Lee Dong-Jun had 15 points and 9 rebounds. Off the bench, another young gun stepped out and this time, it was Yoo Sung-Ho with 15 points.

Wonju Dongbu Promy, still without Kim Joo-Sung lost to Incheon ET Land 75-66. Incheon fought back from a ten points deficit midway into the second quarter and used a scoring run in the third to gain the upper hand. Fourth quarter play was even but Incheon preserved the lead for the victory. Ricardo Powell had 27 points and 11 rebounds for Incheon. Wonju's Park Ji-Hyun and Lee Kwang-Jae made their stand but could not convert in the fourth quarter.

Anyang KGC fended off a challenge from the Goyang Orions to nab another pivotal win 74-70. Lee Jung-Hyun fired 12 of his 17 points in the first half and scored the rest in the final minutes. Juan Patillo with 20 points. Goyang was lead by Leone Williams with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Jeon Tae-Pong finished with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

Anyang KGC upsets Seoul SK Knights 66-58. KGC showed the vulnerabilities of SK's 3-2 Drop Zone by playing a compact offensive set involving higher percentage shots within the rectangle base. Plus Juan Patillo attacked straight into the baseline to exploit the hard to cover rim front. Result was the front baseline defense was almost non-existent as wing convergence seems very hesitant to commit in the middle. Add to that KGC using press stacks to pincer in two probing players in the goal as well as the manual but effective dribble drive baseline from Patillo and Kim Tae-Sol.

The likes of Cho Hyo-Min and Lee Jung-Hyun also proved invaluable in making the wing defenders very hesitant to converge in the middle through false actions involving pocket slides.


Lee Sang-Beom did a great job in keeping KGC within tempo to play at their pace and not bite into SK's defensive traps.

As expected, Seoul SK Knights took game 1 over Anyang KGC. We saw a very focused SK team that utilized a 3-2 switch zone instead of their 3-2 drop zone the fueled their running game. Tempo control and proper timing seal in the straight paint somewhat limited the high scoring Juan Patillo. Aaron Haynes played tremendous and was on target. He was also very committed on the defense with 19 rebounds. It is that inverse prop instances in the offense that gave SK a lot of high percentage shots.

Meanwhile, Moon Tae-Young and his Ulsan team got the better of Moon Tae-Jong and Incheon as Ulsan took game 1. Moon TY outplayed Moon TJ in the game where the latter was on target and contributed to the defense.

To think Moon Tae-Young and Aaron Haynes were teammates over a season ago with Changwon, but both as teammates could achieve nothing as the Sakers were in turmoil. A season later, Haynes finds himself playing the best basketball of his career while Moon still does he does albeit with better talent around him.

Both have better FG% through proper utilization by their respective coaches and in operation with their respective teams. Haynes operates in the short corners with better scoring opportunities as he learned how beneficial it is to be the recipient of a timed lob after the latter sets a down screen when SK stacks their zone press formation. When Haynes does find himself in an isolation sequence, the likes of Kim Sun-Hyung alerts themselves to be active backdoor cutters while bigmen like Kim Min-Soo automatically sets an up screen to open a driving lane for Haynes.

As for Moon, better talent around him like crisp passing bigman Ham Ji-Hoon and pinpoint passer Yang Dong-Geun gets him the ball when Moon cuts after a time seal. That works in his favor as he no longer needs to isolate heavily just to score. Moon's teammates are also smart cutters where they establish position not on the blind spots but on the triple threat field of vision. This culminates Ulsan's mid baseliness press / shuffle that always involves Ham Ji-Hoon as a feed post.

With the Sakers, both kind of negated each other as they find their teammates innately stand around in the instance of either of them gets the ball. They had good chemistry with a two man game, but obviously, the Sakers needed more than a two man play to challenge for the playoffs. Kim Jin's triangle placed an emphasis with a post presence in last season. That role fell to the retired Seo Jang-Hoon and Song Chang-Moo. Haynes and Moon would complete the troika as either are situated in the far high opposite or far opposite. That lead to a dead space in the weak side of the offense where two players just stood there in the arc. In case the defense converged, the center would make a risky pass to the outer panes of the triangle and either Haynes or Moon find themselves in the ball possession just by the three point line. That leads an isolation play or if the center does draw up an up screen, both will still have to go hard just to make a field goal. Late last season, both settled for too many long shots as the opposing teams learned to trap the post and settle a two man probe in order to counter a quick attack.

If we go back two seasons ago, Moon was still with the Sakers and Haynes with the lowly Samsung, both have a tendency to shoot it out in an entertaining fashion. As the Ulsan - Seoul SK series opens for the championship, both have the luxury of displaying their all around skillsets other than to score.

Ulsan Mobis Phoebus came charging back and stuns SK Knights 76-71 to take game 1 of the KBL Finals.

In the first quarter, SK's running game exposed Ulsan's transition defense where every Ulsan miss would translate into an uptempo surge as pressure for Ulsan. In the second quarter, SK could not rebound and Ulsan was getting hustle points thanks to Rod Benson.

3rd and 4th quarter saw SK's defense humbled by Ulsan's resiliency where the likes of Park Jeong-Chun helped chipped away at SK's lead. 2 minutes remaining and tied at 69 all, that is when Ulsan took over the game with a Yang Dong-Geun three put an exclamation mark on SK's defensive collapse.

SK was pretty much carried by Aaron Haynes and Courtney Sims as the locals played below their usual rate. While Ulsan played better as a team thanks to Yang Dong-Geun and Kim Si-Rae. Moon Tae-Young finished with just 15 points but helped Ulsan with his rebounding.

Ulsan winning at home last night 68-62. Both teams not forcing the tempo and rigorously went half-court in pacing. What SK does not realize is that Ulsan is a much better half-court team as SK is not using their drop zone coverage that fuels their pressure offense on which Kim Sun-Hyung was brilliant all season long. Still, Rod Benson helps control the paint for Ulsan.

SK just lost heart while Ulsan kept up the pressure.

Kim Si-Rae is one lucky rookie. Picked first overall in the KBL 2012 draft by Mobis and he went on to learn and play with Yang Dong-Geun. Mobis plays a two point guard back-court when Kim was improving steadily in the middle of the season. Now, he is a KBL champion in his rookie year. He is off to a great start in his career and one day will take the reins from Yang.

Kim Sun-Hyung posted on his facebook tonight that being swept by Ulsan is a "humbling feeling". He said that fans can expect great next season and congratulated Ulsan for a well deserved victory.

Can you tell to me how much money half Korean player like Jarod Stevenson and David Michaels can make in Korea? Thanks to you for this information.
