Kim Sun-hyung vs Byun Jun-hyung먹튀검증, what is your choice?
A season of men’s professional basketball is coming to an end. Anyang KGC won the regular league championship, and the top 6 teams were confirmed. All that remains is who will go straight to the playoffs in the semifinals in second place. Depending on the results of the final match of the season on the 29th, the fates of Changwon LG, Seoul SK, and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis are mixed.
Since it is the end of the season, another point of interest is who will be the regular league MVP. The atmosphere is that the domestic player MVP is compressed into a two-way match between SK Kim Seon-hyung and KGC Byun Jun-hyung. At the beginning of the season, Goyang Carrot’s 3-point shooter Jeon Seong-hyun was terrifying, but at the end of the season his strength plummeted. Hitting Jeong Seong-woo in the match against Suwon KT was also bad news for the MVP race.
A controversy is already brewing. In KGC, which confirmed the championship, the coach and colleagues are pushing Byun Jun-hyung. The logic is that the winning team should be the MVP. However, Kim Seon-hyung is not pushed back either. In the current situation, it would not be strange if anyone received it.
First, Kim Sun-hyung. He averaged 16.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists for the season. The score is 10th overall, and 3rd if only domestic players. The important thing is that assists are number one. He even scored while saving his teammates. Lee Dae-seong (Daegu Korea Gas Corporation), the top scorer in Korea, scored 18.1 points per game, but the number of attacks alone is very high. Assists are 4.1, only 8th.
Byun Junhyung also did well. However, in his personal record, he is slightly behind Kim Seon-hyung. He averaged 14.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists. The score is 7th in the country, and the assist is 3rd overall. So what KGC claims is the winning title. That makes sense. No matter how good an individual is, if the team’s performance is poor, the value of the performance is reduced.
However, if Kim Seon-hyeong achieved such a result on a last-place team, the weight could be shifted to Byun Jun-hyeong. But SK did well too. As the defending champion, he was sluggish at the beginning of the season, but he is now fighting for second place until the end. It is also considered as the strongest team to rise to the championship match. It may not be enough to win, but Kim Seon-hyung is also not far behind in terms of team performance.
Rather, last season’s regular league MVP Choi Jun-yong’s long-term absence due to injury is an added factor to Kim Sun-hyeong in this MVP race. Ahn Young-joon also went to the army. You can enjoy the synergy effect of being responsible for the team’s performance while doing everything without the two of you. The fact that he showed faster and more energetic play at the age of mid-30s also shook the hearts of fans.
On the contrary, Byun Jun-hyeong has a side that diverts attention because Oh Se-geun and Moon Seong-gon also played a big role ahead of free agency. It’s a cold reality that Byun Jun-hyung can’t even give the impression that he led the ‘Hwak’ team. He said that team performance is also important, but MVP is an individual award after all.
If I were to vote, I would rate Kim Seon-hyung with a slight lead of 55 to 45. Of course, no matter who receives it, there will never be a question of ‘why is this player MVP’.
