Choi Jin-soo returned to the first team stage.
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus won 89-83 in a match against Suwon KT Sonicboom in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 8th.
Choi Jin-soo (7 points), who played in the first team game for the first time since November of last year, showed off his considerable presence in the air defense. Coach Dong-Hyun Cho also praised Choi Jin-soo after the game, saying, “He performed like salt.”
Choi Jin-soo said, “Our team is not good at long losing streaks, as is the case every year. To avoid losing a losing streak, we concentrated on blocking it today. It was difficult because it has been a long time since we played, but it feels great to win.”
He added, “It wasn’t difficult to play for the first time in a long time. Rather than being nervous, I think I started with fun. I played basketball in front of so many fans in a long time, and I started well at first and was able to continue.” 안전놀이터
Choi Jin-soo, who had been playing in the D-League until recently, thanked coach Park Gu-young.
Choi Jin-soo said, “Coach Koo-young Park was very considerate. He practiced a lot to prepare for the first team, and I gained strength because my friends in the D-League helped a lot. Please let me know, and the coaching staff also ordered something separately, so I prepared for that.”
In the fourth quarter, it was Choi Jin-soo who made a dunk after a thrilling steal and even held a ceremony.
Choi Jin-soo said, “I had a lot of mixed emotions rather than a ceremony. I was in the D-League and came back after a long time in a situation where I couldn’t help the team and couldn’t play. Since I even dunked in such a game, I thought of the team’s atmosphere after two consecutive losses, so I was more energetic. I was meant to do that,” he said.
