The talkative (?) ‘Philippine hero’ Ildefonso made his first appearance.
On the afternoon of the 6th, the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot’ professional basketball match between Anyang KGC and Suwon KT was held at Anyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do. Dave Ildefonso, a new foreigner from KT, who arrived in Korea on the 2nd, appeared at the stadium.
Abando and Ildefonso, both Filipino players who play for KGC in the KBL league, exchanged greetings and asked each other how they were doing. After that, he posed for reporters while playing around in the middle of the court.
On the way back to the bench after posing, Ildefonso showed friendliness by putting his shoulder around Abando, who was two years older.
According to KGC club officials, Abando and Ildefonso exchanged greetings and regards. Ildefonso told Abando, “I told him that his team (KT) would win because he would not do well today.”
Ildefonso, who will wear the Suwon KT uniform, was born in 2000. He is a 183cm tall guard and is an attacking player who mainly scores his own goals rather than managing the game. 스포츠토토
Ildefonso is a rising star in Philippine basketball and is a top star. With 380,000 personal SNS followers, the nickname ‘Philippine Heo Woong’ is unmatched. However, it seems that it will take time to see him perform on the domestic stage.
According to a KT official, he said, “He has not completed the paperwork yet and has not yet completed training, so he will be able to play after the All-Star break.”
▲Aldefonso displayed friendliness by putting his shoulder around his older brother, Abando, who is two years older than him without hesitation.
▲ Aldefonso, who has not been locked out of the players, is applauding KT’s victory.
In the game, as predicted by Ildefonso, KT beat KGC 85-83 and recorded 6 consecutive wins. What’s even more amazing is that Lens Abando played 10 minutes, but showed a poor performance by scoring 3 points with one successful 3-point shot.
KT, who won that day, chased Goyang Carrot and Jeonju KCC, tied for 5th with 13 wins and 15 losses, by half a game.
