The Korean Basketball League (KBL) will hold the ‘2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball All-Star Game’ at KT Sonicboom Arena in Suwon at 2:00 pm on the 15th. Enthusiasm for the first all-star game to be held in Suwon is heating up. KBL started selling tickets for the All-Star Game from 3:00 pm on the 9th, and 3165 seats were sold out in 3 minutes, proving the keen interest.
In this All-Star Game, Woong Heo (KCC) and Dae-Sung Lee (Korea Gas Corporation), who placed 1st and 2nd in the fan vote, will form their own All-Star teams to compete against each other. ‘Team Heo Woong’ is led by manager Cho Dong-hyun (Hyundai Mobis), and ‘Team Lee Dae-seong’ is led by manager Kim Sang-shik (KGC), and an interesting combination is expected to add to the fun.
In ‘Team Heo Woong’, Omari Spellman (KGC) and La Gunah (KCC), and Heo Woong and Kim Seon-hyeong (SK), who have been competing on the court for a while, work together as teammates. In ‘Team Lee Dae-seong’, Lee Dae-seong and Choi Jun-yong (SK), the two great mountain ranges of unique individuality, met, and Ha Yoon-gi (KT) and Asem Marey (LG), the best centers for domestic and foreign players, build a ‘united mountain fortress’. In particular, it is also unusual that stars who have boasted perfect compatibility as teammates, such as Kim Seon-hyung-Choi Jun-yong, spellman-Moon Seong-gon and Byun Jun-hyeong (ideal team Lee Dae-seong), will meet as ‘enemies’. 메이저놀이터
