‘Flying Gilas’ Lens Abando will be back soon.
Anyang KGC is at the top of the table with a record of 25 wins and 11 losses as of the end of the 4th round of the 2022-23 season. Although they are playing difficult matches in every game, they finished the 4th round with 6 wins and 3 losses, further increasing the chances of first place in the regular league.
KGC’s power is not yet complete. Abando, who showed off tremendous energy throughout the season, has left. Since January 11th, he has missed all five games in the second half. He was not used to winter and cold enough to see snow for the first time, and eventually had to take a break at an unexpected time.
At this point ahead of the start of the 5th round, the 10 KBL clubs now know each other too well. Trade, which could have been the biggest variable in the last-minute ranking competition, also had no big deal until the deadline. Now, the key is to keep the power you have as much as possible. In other words, injury prevention and condition management are the points of ranking competition. 먹튀검증
However, KGC has a variable called Abando. He is a player who can bring dynamic energy to the rather static KGC. There are ups and downs, but once they explode, they have scoring power that is difficult to block and the overwhelming physical ability of the best in the league, so it is not easy to prepare for them from the opponent’s point of view.
Time to return is important. KGC coach Kim Sang-sik said in Jeonju on January 31, “Abando said he would consider participating after the (Goyang) Carrot match.” After the Carrot game on the 2nd, KGC’s game is against Seoul Samsung on the 4th. It is the best opportunity to check Abando’s condition as it is a game with a large power difference and a high chance of victory. It is difficult to be 100% certain, but it is possible to return to Samsung at the earliest.
If they return to Abando, KGC’s rotation can be smoother. Considering the upcoming East Asian Super League (EASL), managing the condition of key players is key. In order to catch the two rabbits of the regular league and EASL, you must start preparing now. Abando’s return before it’s too late is a huge boon.
