There is a line in foul play, but it has been crossed. The follow-up response is incomprehensible.
Shooter Jeon Seong-hyeon (32, Carrot), who emerged as the biggest hit product in professional basketball this season, committed a dangerous foul of pushing an opponent attempting a layup from behind and was on the cutting board.
Goyang Carrot lost 76-90 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Suwon KT match held at Suwon KT Sonicboom Arena on the 27th, losing two consecutive losses.
Jeon Seong-hyun, who is playing an MVP-level performance in the regular league with a spirited shooting sense, was a game that left a great deal of regret for a dangerous foul that lost the spirit of a partner. 스포츠토토
Jeon Seong-hyun caught up for defense when Jeong Seong-woo (30, KT) launched a quick attack following an interception with about a minute left at the end of the second quarter.
He was unbeatable in speed. The moment Jung Sung-woo tried to jump for a layup shot, Jeon Seong-hyun, who was chasing him from behind, pushed Jung Sung-woo away.
Jung Sung-woo, who lost his balance, fell dangerously and collided with an advertisement. It was impossible to control because it was physically affected at the peak of speed. A foul that is rarely seen.
Jeong Seong-woo, who felt the risk of injury, protested against Jeon Seong-hyun.
Here is the more disappointing part. It is common to apologize when an opponent commits a dangerous or misleading foul.
However, Jeon Seong-hyun rather responded to Jung Sung-woo with ridicule and pointing. Veteran Kim Yeong-hwan (39, KT) and Kim Kang-seon (37, Carrot) intervened, so it didn’t turn into a big misfortune.
In the basketball world, it is said that ‘burning a plane’ is a dangerous foul that intentionally goes into the lower body of a player who is floating in the air. This is a case where there is a hidden bad intention to deliberately hurt the opponent by breaking the center of gravity.
Jeon Seong-hyun’s foul was just as dangerous. The referee declared a U foul through video review.
Seong-Hyun Jeon averaged 19.9 points this season by making four 3-pointers per game. He is a special player who ranks first in the scoring category for domestic players. He is also challenging 200 3-pointers in one season in the regular league for the first time ever.
However, the absurd foul play and the red flag response, which are unlikely to come out well in club basketball, are expected to be a big blemish. It is very fortunate that Jeong Seong-woo was not injured.
