Kim Nak-hyun (28-184 centimeters) of Daegu’s Korea Gas Corporation is a guaranteed sixth-place finisher in professional basketball.
He hasn’t missed the playoffs since his debut in the 2017-18 season.
Coincidentally, last season’s team, GAS, missed the ‘Spring Basketball’ after Kim joined the army.
While GAS has a tough time reaching the six-team playoffs this season, Kim Nak-hyun thinks otherwise.
He scored 25 points, the most by a Korean player in the 2023-2024 regular season, to lead his team to victory against Seoul Samsung at Daegu Gymnasium on August 8.
Thanks to his performance, GAS has recently won three consecutive games, rekindling the flames of a sixth-place finish. ”
We can go to the playoffs,” he said after the game, expressing confidence.
Kim Nak-hyun led the comeback with a free throw midway through the fourth quarter when his team was down, and he also hit a wedge three-pointer to seal the win.
He finished 5-of-9 from three-point range.
She was just one point shy of her career-high (26).
The gap between eighth-place GAS and sixth-place Anyang Jungkwanjang is 4.5 games. GAS still has 24 games left to play. “
If we want to go to the playoffs, we need to catch all the teams we can beat,” said Kim Nak-hyun. “
We shouldn’t lose to (bottom teams) Samsung, Jeonggwanjang, and Sono, and if we catch one or two top teams, we’ll be able to advance,” he said. 온라인카지노
Kim joined the Electronic Land with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 draft after graduating from Korea University.
His offense was second to none in college, despite his short stature.
He and Yonsei’s Heo Hoon (28-180 cm), also an offensive guard, were rivals for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in college.
Kim Nak-hyun had a chance to take advantage of the military exemption.
In August 2018, he was selected for the 3-on-3 basketball team at the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and went on to win a gold medal.
But in the final against China, with the score 17-15, the referee called a foul on Kim when a Chinese player attempted a two-point shot (a three-point shot in 5-on-5 basketball) with 4.4 seconds left in the game. 먹튀검증
Kim protested that there was no physical contact, but the call was not overturned.
China made both free throws to tie the game at 17-17, and eventually won 19-18 in overtime.
Kim Nak-hyun was devastated.
However, Kim turned his bad luck around and landed in the pros. In his professional career, he averaged 11.0 points and 3.8 assists per game, and this season he is averaging 11.2 points and 3.5 assists per game.
He’s battling a nagging knee injury, but he’s determined. “
Right now, I’ll do whatever I can to help the team,” he said, “and when my knee is better, I’ll be more aggressive and get more one-on-ones.”
