Oh Se-geun (36, 199cm) shared his thoughts on joining the team.

During his time at Chungang University, he was a mainstay alongside Kim Sun-hyung (34, 187cm) and set a new record of 52 consecutive wins. On the 18th, he confirmed his move to SK with a three-year contract and total compensation of 750 million won (550 million won in annual salary and 200 million won in incentives).

Oh was joined by Kim Sun-hyung at the signing press conference held at the KBL Centre in Nonhyeon-dong on the 8th. “I’m happy and grateful for this momentous occasion, and I’m happy to be here with (Kim) Sun-hyung,” he said.메이저놀이터

“I’ve always had injury issues, so my goal this season is to play injury-free. Since I switched teams, it’s too early to say whether I will win the championship with my new teammates, including Sun Hyung-i and (Heo) Il-young, but I would like to say that I will reward them with good results.”

Below is a one-on-one interview with Oh.

Q. How did you decide to join SK?

It’s true that I thought about it a lot. It was hard to leave behind what I had achieved for 12 years, but I also wanted to challenge myself in a new team. I think I made a big decision after talking to Sun Hyung-i and talking to everyone around me.

Q. How much of a say did Sun-hyung have in your decision?

It’s hard to say what percentage, but it’s true that he had a big part in it. I’m playing for a new team, SK, so I have to adjust to all the players. At KGC, I played well with other players, but I played well together. I think Lin Hyung will also fit in well. I’ll try to create as much synergy as possible.

Sun-hyung didn’t sign the contract because of words. But I think he thought that he would be able to relive the good memories and memories of his childhood. I think I’ll be able to play better, so I’m looking forward to it. Of course, I’m worried, but I hope I can handle it.

Q. What kind of team did you think SK was before the transfer?

I heard a lot of things from Sun Hyung, but I knew that the atmosphere of the team was really good. It’s hard to say, but I think I made this choice because there were a lot of good things compared to my previous team. I had a lot of expectations.

Q. You fought hard in last year’s championship, but didn’t you hate Kim Sun-hyung?

I hated him from the first game (laughs). It was like ‘dog shit’ with all the ridiculous ‘dog shots’. I studied and played a lot to stop him, but I don’t think it worked. I was also nervous because he had a ridiculous performance in the seventh game. In the end, we won, so I don’t hate him.

Q. You had a strong centre line.

It was a fun time at university. We played together, defended, attacked, and I think that’s why we had some ridiculous records. (Ham) Jun-hoo and (Park) Chan-sung were also there, but I think I enjoyed playing with Lin Hyeong. We’re older now, but I think it’s our task and goal to bring out the synergy we had when we were younger.

Q. You two are the best, but some people are worried about your age.

We will try to remove that pressure. We will try to remove the pressure, starting with the way we approach the game regardless of our age. If we perform well, we will talk about it.

Q. SK plays a different style of basketball. Do you think you’ll be able to adapt well?

We don’t play for more than 30 or 40 minutes, so as long as we play, we can adapt to the basketball we play. I think I’ve always adapted well to the team, whether it’s my club team or the national team. I think I can continue to do that. I think I can find a new side of myself, and I think I can find a new side of the team.

Q. You’re looking forward to playing with Jamil Warney.

When I played with Omari Spelmen, I felt like I was a match-up against foreign players. I don’t think that’s going to be the case with Jamil Warney. (It’s an advantage.) He’s a very clever player, so I think he’ll be good in terms of the high-low game and spacing, so I’m not too worried about that.

Q. What would you like to say to the KGC fans and what would you like to say to the SK fans?

I joined the team in 2011, and I’m very grateful for the support I’ve received over the past 12 years, whether it’s good, bad, or sick. I feel like I spent 12 unforgettable years at KGC. However, since I came to SK, I will not have the attitude of a rookie with a fresh start, but I will work just as hard, so if SK fans support me a lot, I will definitely repay them.

Q. What is your current physical condition and are there any injuries?

I’d like to think that I’ve been healthy for the past three seasons, and an injury is an injury. But I’m happy with the fact that I played without any major injuries, although I wish I could be happier. I didn’t miss any games because of injuries, so I’m happy with that. After the season, I need time to rehabilitate, so I think I’ll be ready for the season. I can’t say how many minutes I’ll play, but because I have (Choi), coach Jeon Hee-chul said he wants me to play half and half, and I agree with him. I’m going to try to improve myself and make sure I’m ready for the season.

Q. What was the strongest team you played for in your basketball career, and how do you compare it to SK?

I think we were the strongest when we won the 2016-17 championship, and I think this season will be no different given our overall chemistry. I think we won all four titles because we were strong. It’s hard to pick a single season.

Q. How will you feel when you visit KGC’s home, Anyang, after the transfer?

I don’t know because I haven’t experienced it yet, but I think it will be very strange to go to Anyang. I once said that it would be strange to go to Anyang in a different jersey after the championship, and I think it would be. I think it will be very strange. I don’t know until I do it.

Q. How do you keep yourself motivated?

I won a lot of titles and awards during my career. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with injuries, and I’ve worked really hard to overcome that. Injuries are good.
