Men’s professional basketball has opened. Among the players from the 10 teams, the player who performed the best was Jamil Warney (29) of Seoul SK. He exploded with 46 points in the game against Anyang Jeonggwanjang on the 21st. He scored 26 points against Suwon KT on the 22nd and 30 points against Goyang Sono on the 24th. Double Double is the default option. In three games, he averaged 34 points, 13.7 rebounds, and a field goal percentage of a whopping 61.3%. Definite control of the game. It is fear itself to the opposing team.
Moreover, SK is not heavily dependent on Wonny. It is accurate to say that you use it well. The signature play is a floater following a 1-on-1 face up. SK deploys two players in the corner in the set offense. Oh Se-geun and Kim Seon-hyung show moves to maximize Warney’s efficiency. Although Warney scores a lot of points, SK does not rely on Warney to play basketball.
At the end of the 4th quarter, in the game against Sono, they used Warney as ‘bait’ and opened a path with Heo Il-young’s 3-pointer and Kim Sun-hyung and Oh Se-geun’s 2-on-2 attack.
In other words, from the team’s perspective against SK, Warney’s ‘Ace Gravity’ (the gravity-like force where an ace pulls the defense. In other words, synergy effect) is a problem. The meme ‘How do we stop Warnie’, which became a hot topic online last season, is becoming a reality.
In short, it is ‘tying a bell around the cat’s neck.’
However, Sono director Kim Seung-gi’s ‘Hidden Card’ provided a strong hint for ‘Wonny’s Wrap Around Your Neck’.
Warney tends to catch the ball at the central 3-point line and control the play. If you look at SK’s attack system, there is a lot of empty space in the middle. It is a device to facilitate Warnie’s 1-on-1 attacks. Warney catches the ball near the central 3-point line and throws a floater after breaking through. It is difficult to block one-on-one.
However, coach Kim Seung-gi attached players with good activity and power, such as Choi Hyun-min and Ahn Jeong-hoon, to Warney. Closely marked. When Warnie comes in, it’s a surprise double team. Warney’s floater was noticeably less accurate. SK’s attack system was slightly distorted. Last season, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin saw the effectiveness of this type of defense in the playoffs, and LG coach Cho Sang-hyun also used this defense.
After the game, Coach Seunggi Kim said, “The trap defense against Warnie was okay, but I still gave him 30 points.” SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “There was a scene where Warney overextended himself. It needs to be corrected. If the opponent defends like this, I think we should use Kim Sun-hyung and Oh Se-geun’s 2-on-2 rather than using Warney’s attack options.스포츠토토” He also said, “After watching today’s game, the opposing team will likely use this type of defense to keep Warney in check.”
Warney scored 30 points and 17 rebounds. He was a major contributor to the victory. However, regardless of the data, Warney struggled with Sono’s modified defense during the game. Clearly, there is a high possibility that the opposing team facing SK will prepare a defense like this. However, SK knows it well. Skilled. I’m also curious about the response.
