Coach Kim pointed out, “Foreign players have come. This is not physical training, but a training camp to adapt to foreign players. Since foreign players have come, we also need to adjust our defense again.”

Although Anthony Bennett, who is not yet in full physical condition, showed signs of struggling a little during training, Coach Kim was not too worried.

You have to watch them and help them improve step by step. You have to take your time. In the past, foreign players were good at building their bodies. “If I didn’t do it, I would push and fight, but I don’t do that anymore,” he said.

Regarding Jarrod Jones, “Jarod Jones is still in the process of getting to know our team, so there’s nothing to criticize. He’s building his body well and getting the patterns we do in his head. There’s no need to say this or that. “Anyway, I think if you practice the pattern step by step, you will get used to it. If you push yourself too hard, it will bounce even more,” he answered.

Sono, who did not have a suitable opponent for practice matches during the training period, will face the Mongolian University League champion team on the 15th and 16th. This is the team that coach Lee Hyo-sang, who worked at DB, belongs to.

Coach Kim said, “Coach Lee Hyo-sang was at DB, and he and I are friends. He said he would like us to have a practice game, so we played a game. He said it was the No. 1 team at a university in Mongolia and that they were going out for a training camp and then returning.”

He continued, “But I’m glad I can still have practice games. Right now, there aren’t any games in college or the pros. Shooting training goes really well in those practice games. I plan to shoot as many shots as I can. 50 per game. He added, “I’m going to focus on shooting so I can practice.”
