Dribbling, passing, and shooting are the fundamentals of basketball skills. While none of them are unimportant, it’s the passing that increases a player’s value at a certain level. A good passer makes his teammates play “together”.토토사이트
Daegu KOGAS, which is in last place in the 2023-2024 regular season with a 1-7 record, is a team in desperate need of passing. They have players who can shoot and create their own shots, but they lack players who can pass and create chances for their teammates.
It shows in their record. Gasworks is averaging just 14.1 assists in eight games. That’s the lowest number among the 10 teams.
This lack of assists makes it easier for opposing teams to defend. They only have to shut down certain players. Even if the defense is crowded, they can’t take advantage of it to create other chances.
GAS will be counting on the contribution of Kim Nak-hyun, who will return from his military service with the Korean Armed Forces Athletic Corps on Friday. A two-on-two player, Kim specializes in pull-up jump shots and assists. In the 2021-2022 season before his military service, he averaged 5.7 assists per game. He was second only to Kim Si-rae (Samsung – 5.9), who led the league in assists.
Few players in the history of professional basketball have performed well in a season after returning from military service, but for the Gasworks, whose roster is weaker than other teams, Kim’s addition is a welcome one. Acting head coach Kang Hyuk said, “We are last in assists. We need players who can create offensive opportunities, and (Kim) is a player who can pass. If he comes in, we’ll have more breathing room when it comes to guarding,” he said.
