Sunhyung Kim, who is aiming for the MVP of the round ‘still in his prime’, should he summon the legends?

Although he has become a veteran in his 12th season, he still reigns as the best guard in the league. Can Kim Seon-hyung (SK), who is continuing his career high pace, set a new record to summon legends in relation to the round MVP?

Kim Seon-hyung played in all 45 games in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball regular league, averaging 15.6 points, 1.1 3-point shots, 2.5 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.3 steals. Among them, scoring and assists are at a career high pace. The previous record was 15.1 points and 6 assists recorded in the 2016-2017 season. In addition, he is aiming for his first assist No. 1 in 12 seasons of his debut. Second place Byun Jun-hyeong (KGC) is recording 5.3 assists.

Kim Seon-hyeong, who recorded an average of 16.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 0.6 steals in the 4th round, including pouring 47 points in the home game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, showed a more powerful appearance in the 5th round. He performed with 16.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 1.8 steals, including compiling double-doubles three times in nine games.

The 8.3 assists are Kim Sun-hyung’s most assists in a single round. His previous record also came this season. Kim Seon-hyeong recorded 7.6 assists in the first round. The most assists in a round before this season were 7.3 assists in rounds 1 and 3 of the 2016-2017 season.

Round MVP is also worth aiming for. SK missed 6 games in the 5th round due to Choi Jun-yong suffering an unexpected heel bruise, but with Kim Seon-hyeong at the forefront, SK recorded 7 wins and 2 losses, fueling the competition for second place. The record of 7 wins and 2 losses is second only to Anyang KGC’s 9 wins and 1 loss.

The domestic player who stood out the most in his personal record was Kim Seon-hyung. Kim Seon-hyung recorded a contribution of 295.33 in the 5th round, surpassing Byun Jun-hyung (KGC, 285.17) and rising to the top of the domestic player. The PER, which means the player productivity index, recorded 27.0, ranking first among domestic players who played more than 4 games. The 5th round of this season will end on March 4th, after which the main character of the round MVP will be determined through a press vote.

KBL selected a monthly MVP like the NBA from February of the 1997 season, the first year, to the 2014-2015 season. Round MVP was introduced from the 2015-2016 season. The oldest round MVP is Aaron Haynes, the longest serving foreign player. Haynes won the MVP in the 6th round of the 2017-2018 season when he was active in SK, and at the time he was 36 years and 11 months old. However, this record does not include the monthly MVP awardees. 온라인바카라

Among domestic players, Kim Joo-seong, the current Wonju DB acting manager, holds the first place. Acting coach Kim Joo-seong was selected as the MVP in the 4th round of the 2015-2016 season, when he achieved the first 1000 block shots in history, and was 36 years and 2 months old. The second place in the domestic player was Yang Dong-geun, Ulsan Hyundai Mobis coach, at the age of 34 years and 3 months, recorded in the 3rd round of the 2015-2016 season. If selected as MVP for the 5th round, Kim Sun-hyung will be 34 years and 8 months old, surpassing coach Yang Dong-geun and rising to the 3rd place as the oldest round MVP.

The previously mentioned Haines, acting manager Kim Joo-seong, and coach Yang Dong-geun are legends who have long run by adding self-management skills to their outstanding skills during their active career. Kim Seon-hyung has also become a veteran in his mid-30s, but he is still continuing his career as a top-notch league star. Adding 88 points, he achieved 7000 points, the 15th issue of KBL history. I wonder if Kim Seon-hyung, who ranked 4th as the oldest round MVP last season, will be able to raise the rankings a notch this season by overtaking coach Yang Dong-geun.
