The main character of professional basketball this season was Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, which won the championship by far.
However, in the free agent market, all of the team’s key players left, leaving fans greatly disappointed.
Reporter Heo Jae-won reports.
This is a picture of basketball fans’ truck demonstration held in front of KGC Ginseng Corporation’s headquarters in June of last year.
And about a year later, as fans feared, the two free agents who symbolized KGC Ginseng Corporation, Oh Se-geun and Moon Seong-gon, all left for another team.
In particular, it is shocking that franchise star Oh Se-geun, who was called ‘the heart of Anyang’ by winning four championships, moved to SK.
It is a choice that gave up both the glory of permanent absence, which was guaranteed, and the leadership life after his retirement.
Colleagues who won the combined championship with Oh Se-geun this season posted a post on social media that revealed their heartache.
KGC Ginseng Corporation has grown into a prestigious team by winning four championships since 2011 when Oh Se-geun joined, but on the other hand, key players left one after another, incurring anger from fans.
KGC Ginseng Corporation is said to have been complacent in negotiations with Oh Se-geun, such as showing a difference of opinion over the contract period.
I belatedly offered a higher amount than SK, but I couldn’t change my mind.
Oh Se-geun told YTN that he had mixed feelings, saying, “I couldn’t stop crying all night.”
This word from Oh Se-geun, which he sent to Anyang fans after winning MVP in the championship match, ended up being the last farewell message.스포츠토토
