“I decided to step on the one-two step and take a (dunk shot) and left. But Lawson was so big that I thought I would lose unconditionally, so I gave up.
Choi Bu-kyung, a big man of Seoul SK, a professional basketball team, answered as follows when asked about the elegant “double clutch” scene in the home game against Goyang Carrot on the 5th.
Choi Bu-kyung rushed under the goal after receiving a pass from Seon-hyung Kim 5 minutes and 52 seconds before the end of the second quarter of the game held at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul.
However, when Lawson attempted a block shot, he pulled his arm out and flew to the other side of the goal before falling and finishing a neat layup.
This is a technique that jumps into the air once and avoids the opponent’s defense through another arm movement until just before the layup스포츠토토, an advanced technique called the so-called ‘double clutch’.
When the 2m tall and over 100kg big man smoothly succeeded in a difficult move, cheers erupted from the crowd and filled the arena.
Looking back at this scene, director Jeon Hee-chul laughed, “(Choi Boo-kyung) does this technique, but I haven’t been able to put it in well. This time, my concentration was good.”
In fact, the player who uses this movement the best in professional basketball is Kim Seon-hyeong, the ‘assault leader’ of SK.
Kim Seon-hyung commented, “It was a scene where I felt that Bu-gyeong’s physical condition had really improved. It was an amazing double clutch.”
Choi Bu-gyeong said, “It was followed by a linear variant.”
On this day, Choi Boo-kyung recorded 17 points and 7 rebounds, making a big success in the air defense.
Choi Boo-kyung, who entered the professional league with the first overall pick in the 2012 rookie draft, has established himself as a player who focuses on ‘dirty work’ such as defense and rebounding rather than offense.
His 17 points scored that day is also the most in one game since he scored 20 points against Seoul Samsung on November 13, 2018.
Coach Jeon was satisfied, saying, “I don’t praise individual players, but today I was surprised by both offense and defense.”
Choi Boo-gyeong looked back, saying, “In the attack, Kim Seon-hyung, Choi Jun-yong, and Jameel Warney put in a lot of delicious passes. (Thanks to that) the habit of hesitating has disappeared.”
Thanks to Bukyung Choi’s performance, SK defeated Carrot 96-83.
Carrot scored 13 3-pointers, befitting the highest 3-point team in professional basketball, but was pushed back in rebounds (26-36) and fast break points (0-20).
Choi Boo-gyeong said, “In the Carrot match, we defend with the idea of giving a mid-range shot rather than a 3-pointer.”
He added, “Carrot thinks that 3 points are no different from a bottom-of-the-goal shot.
