“He is a hard-working player, and he seems to fit well with our team.”
Asan Woori Bank and Yongin Samsung Life Insurance announced a trade on the morning of the 15th. The gist is this. Woori Bank sent center Bang Boram (185cm, C) to Samsung Life, and Samsung Life sent forward Lee Myeong-gwan (174cm, F) to Woori Bank. i.e. 1 to 1 trade.
Bang Boram is a tall big man with a height that is not common in WKBL. Although he is a young player, he is also a resource who understands Woori Bank’s airborne movement well. He was a promising prospect who was highly anticipated by Woori Bank.
However, Bang Bo-ram did not get a chance among veteran sisters such as Kim Jong-un (178cm, F) – Go Ara (179cm, F) – Kim Dan-bi (180cm, F). As a young player who needs opportunities and growth, Woori Bank tried to find a place for Bang Bo-ram to play.
At the same time, I was looking for a card that could reinforce my power. The player Woori Bank found was Lee Myung-gwan. Lee Myeong-gwan is a resource with a solid physique, strength, and shooting ability. Lee Myeong-kwan, which has various advantages, can be used as a variety of cards at Woori Bank.
In a phone call with this magazine on the 15th, Woori Bank manager Wi Sung-woo said, “He is a very hard-working player. His playing style seemed to fit well with our team,” he said, explaining why he recruited Lee Myung-gwan.
Of course, it is not easy for Lee Myung-gwan to be reborn as Woori Bank’s immediate sense of power. Park Hye-jin (178cm, G) and Kim Dan-bi, Park Ji-hyun (183 cm, G), Choi Yi-sam (182 cm, F), and Yoo Seung-hee (175 cm, F). This is because Woori Bank’s core resources are solid.
However, Kim Jong-un, the oldest and locker room leader, has left. Woori Bank’s electricity supply has gone thin. Woori Bank had to find a way to reinforce its strength. We had to find a way to fill the void left by Kim Jong-un little by little.안전놀이터
So, a core sixth man was needed to ease the burden on the main resources. Lee Myung-gwan is one of them. Along with Go Ara and Noh Hyunji (176cm, F), she has to play her role in many places.
In order to do that, Lee Myeong-gwan has to do something himself. It is ‘defense’, a weakness he has been constantly referring to since his debut. Since Woori Bank’s core color is defense, Lee Myeong-gwan must make up for his weaknesses unconditionally.
Woori Bank coach Sang-Woo Lee also said, “I think he will fit into the team well. However, if the defense is not good, it will be difficult to get a chance. This is a story that applies to all players on our team,” he said, considering’defense’ important.
Anyway, Lee Myung-gwan had a fresh start. A fresh start isn’t bad either. This is because he was evaluated as “working hard” by director Wie Sung-woo, who values “sincerity.” However, the evaluation of “working hard” must be shown to the new coaching staff and new team members. That is the first task Lee Myung-gwan has to do in his new team.
