Even if Carrot, 메이저사이트 a professional basketball team, finishes this regular season in the 6th place, there may be a situation where they cannot go to the playoffs (PO). This is because the Korean Basketball League (KBL) has decided not to allow Carrot to participate in the PO if the remainder of the special membership fee, which is the nature of the league membership fee, is not paid by the deadline. As of the 16th, Carrot is 5th out of 10 teams with 21 wins and 19 losses. It is ahead of 6th place KCC (17-22) by 3.5 games.
KBL held an extraordinary general meeting on the 16th and announced, “We once again confirmed that we will not allow Carrot to participate in the round of 6 PO in the 2022-2023 season if the remaining 1 billion won in special dues is not paid by March 31.”
Carrot is a team re-founded by Day One Sports after acquiring Orion ahead of the opening of this season. Of the total 1.5 billion won in special dues, the first payment of 500 million won was also paid on October 12 last year, five days later than the date originally promised. Recently, there have been two instances in which team salaries have been paid later than the due date. KBL had already decided at an emergency board meeting held in October of last year not to allow Carrot to participate in the PO if he could not pay the special dues in full, but this was not disclosed at the time. A KBL official explained, “Now there is a possibility that Carrot will be on the PO list, and the special membership fee has not been fully paid, so we decided to disclose it.”
Accordingly, if Carrot finishes the regular season in the 6th place without paying the remainder of the special dues within the period, the lower ranked teams will rise one step at a time. If Carrot finishes in 5th place, the 6th place team will become 5th place, and the 7th place team will advance to the round of 6 PO. KBL said, “Carrot expressed its intention to pay the remainder of the special dues within the period at the extraordinary general meeting on the 16th.”
