Kang Iseul joined hands with KB again. Kang I-seul, who was considered the biggest player in the FA market this time, announced his stay while choosing a 3-year renewal contract with KB.
For the past two years,메이저놀이터 KB and Kang Isul laughed and cried. In the first year of transfer, he succeeded in achieving his goal by creating a combined championship with overwhelming results, but last season he failed to win the title for the second consecutive year, showing a collapse unlike the defending champion. How were the last two years of KB and Kang Iseul? And how will the next 3 years go? April 19, 2021,
the first season of the transfer where everything was perfect .
Iseul Kang, the best 3-point shooter in the league, left Hana 1 Q and chose to move to KB, declaring a new challenge. At the time, KB, which won the final victory in the ‘Kang Isul Recruitment Battle’, in which four teams jumped in, officially announced the recruitment of Kang Isul amidst a lot of topics.
Kang Isul’s annual salary at the time was 390 million won. This was a record corresponding to the largest transfer amount in history at the time. Park Ji-soo, a super ace who dominates the league beyond KB, and Kang I-seul were added, and KB, which formed the ‘national team one-two punch’, quickly emerged as the most influential championship candidate.
It wasn’t without concerns. At the time, KB was in a situation where Park Ji-soo could hardly spend the off-season with the national team due to going to the United States. There was a question about whether Park Ji-soo and Kang I-seul, who worked together in the national team but had virtually no opportunity to work together in their team, could create synergy as expected.
However, from the first game, KB’s one-two punch showed its power and erased these doubts. KB, who started the opening game against Samsung Life Insurance, won 68-59 and made up for the loss in the previous season’s championship match. While Park Ji-soo recorded 22 points and 16 rebounds, Kang I-seul also recorded 18 points and 6 rebounds, safely completing his first game in a KB uniform.
Since then, KB has dominated the league. 9 wins in a row since opening, then 14 wins in a row again. KB, which established a solo system early on, confirmed the regular league championship in just 24 games and wrote the record for winning the shortest game ever since a single league.
Iseul Kang averaged 18.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists in his first season wearing a KB uniform. His 3-pointers made a whopping 42.9% of the time. This is a 5% increase compared to the previous season’s 37.9%.
Records and awards followed. On December 31, 2021, in the match against Samsung Life, we achieved a new record of the youngest 600 3 points ever. Also, at the awards ceremony held after the regular season ended, he was named in the BEST 5 along with Park Ji-soo, and also won the 3-point award and the 3-point Yatoo award.
KB, with Kang I-seul, who has completely melted into the team since the first season of transfer, continued the ‘absolute first’ move on the playoff stage. KB, who defeated Woori Bank in the championship match in just three games, achieved a combined championship and engraved the second star on its uniform. Kang I-seul, who joined KB with a desire to win, made a decisive contribution to the team’s victory and resolved the bitterness of being unemployed.
