Gutang’s triple-double award ceremony was held belatedly.
Changwon LG Justin Gutang achieved a triple-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in the 2022-2023 KBL D-League 1 match against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis held at Icheon LG Champions Park on the 14th of last month. LG, with Gutang at the forefront, won 83-63.
The D-League triple-double is the subject of the commemorative award. KBL expanded the scope of the awards in 2019 to revitalize the D-League. When a triple-double is achieved in the D-League, prize money and trophies are prepared and an awards ceremony is held for the player concerned.
Therefore, KBL prepared prize money, trophies, and awards boards for Gutang’s triple-double ceremony ahead of the D-League match between LG and Jeonju KCC on the 13th. However, a problem arose. Gutang, who improved his condition in the D-League, has established himself as a key member of LG. Gutang, who has been consistently playing in the regular league, is not likely to step on the D-League stage again. 안전놀이터
In the end, KBL was unable to proceed with Gutang’s awards ceremony, and delivered the prepared prize money, trophy, and award board to LG. And as time passed, a belated awards ceremony was held ahead of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball LG and Goyang Carrot’s 3rd round confrontation held at the Changwon Gymnasium on the 18th.
LG general manager Han Sang-wook delivered a trophy and an award board to Gutang, had a time of encouragement, and took a commemorative photo. More than a month has passed since the record was achieved, but thanks to the awards ceremony being held in Changwon instead of Icheon, home fans applauded.
Meanwhile, Gutang, who joined LG through the Asia Quarter System this season, plays an average of 15 minutes and 46 seconds in 14 games, recording 5.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists. He struggled to adapt at the beginning of the season, but now he is doing his part by occupying a part of the rotation.
