‘Maknae of the national team’ Moon Jeong-hyeon of Korea University “It’s a lie if you’re not greedy for first place”

Will Moon Jung-hyeon (Korea University) be the first to be called in the upcoming KBL rookie draft?

The men’s basketball team will play a practice match against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 15th and 16th. In the first practice match held in front of more than 1,500 fans, the national team suffered a 66-82 defeat to KOGAS. Of course, it wasn’t normal power. It is because the main center, Laguna, is missing. Laguna, who was in poor physical condition, did not come down to Daegu at all.

On this day, while many fans were watching, Moon Jung-hyun, the youngest member of the national team, stepped on the court in place of Lee Seung-hyun at the end of the first quarter. However, his presence on the court was not great.토토사이트

Moon Jung-hyun is considered one of the BIG 3 along with Park Moo-bin (Korea University) and Ki-sang Yoo (Yonsei University) in the 2023 KBL rookie draft scheduled for next month. Depending on which team takes the first pick, it may be the first to be on the podium at the draft site.

Moon Jeong-hyun, whom we met before the game, said, “When he was first selected (to the adult national team), he was only happy because he had achieved his dream. However, after he was selected, there were some people who said bad things about him. So it was a burden. Come to think of it, (the national team) seems to be the right place for me to be burdened. I feel that there are still negative views on me because I am still lacking, so I plan to work harder,” he said.

As much as he engraved the Taegeuk mark on his chest, Moon said he wanted to become a recognized player as a national representative.

“Ever since I started playing basketball, I wanted to wear the Taegeuk mark. Luckily, I met a good manager and coach, so I think I was able to put it on quickly. Now I’m looking at a higher seat. My brothers did too. At first, I was not recognized and there were many negative views. As a national team player, I want to become a player that everyone recognizes.”

Moon Jung-hyun, who is about to make his professional debut soon, turned his attention to the draft.

He said, “It would be a lie if I said I wasn’t greedy for the first place. There are many people who like me, so I think there will be good results. I think working hard is number one,” he said, actively appealing himself to professional club officials.
