Jeon Seong-hyeon (Koyang Carrot), who was called the best player in the league this season and had a hot season, was embroiled in controversy for ill-mannered behavior.

On the 27th, the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season KT and Carrot match held at Suwon KT Arena Gymnasium, KT scored a double-double alongside Ha Yoon-ki, who scored 22 points, and Yang Hong-seok (16 points, 12 rebounds) and Jarod Jones ( 18 points, 13 rebounds), etc., and beat Carrot 90-76.

Carrot faced Kim Gang-seon (22 points, 7 3-point shots) and Jeon Seong-hyun (20 points, 4 3-point shots) with ‘archery basketball’, which made 15 3-point shots, but rebounded 24-38 and 2-point shots 13-27. , and could not overcome the height.

The scene in question occurred in the second quarter. KT Jeong Seong-woo intensively marked Jeon Seong-hyeon, then stole the ball connected to Jeon Seong-hyeon from the outskirts and attempted a quick attack. Jeon Seong-hyun immediately followed, but due to the timing, it was difficult to stop Jung Sung-woo.

Seong-Woo Jeon, who rushed all the way to the bottom of the goal, was about to try a layup at No Mark, but Seong-Hyun Jeon suddenly pushed him away. Jung Sung-woo, who lost his balance in the air, fell on the court and hit the billboard hard. It was a dangerous scene that could have led to serious injuries if it fell incorrectly.

Fortunately, Jeong Seong-woo got up right away, but he was enraged and approached Jeon Seong-hyeon and protested. However, Jeon Seong-hyun did not apologize and rather showed a smile. The mouth as if saying ‘what?’ or ‘what are you doing?’ was caught on the relay screen.

Kim Young-hwan and Kim Kang-seon, veterans of both teams, quickly intervened to mediate and calm the atmosphere that was almost overheated. Jeong Seong-woo tried to control his emotions and turned around, but Jeon Seong-hyun showed a dissatisfied expression by pointing his finger at Jeong Sung-woo several times despite the referee’s dissuade. Rather than Jung Sung-woo, who suffered a dangerous foul, Jeon Seong-hyun showed a more confident reaction, and a strange scene was created as if the perpetrator and the victim were reversed.

In the end, a U foul was declared against Jeon Seong-hyun. KT won a great victory on the day, and Jung Sung-woo contributed to the team’s complete victory with 8 points, 4 assists and 3 steals that day, and insulted Jeon Seong-hyun as a basketball player.

Jeon Seong-hyun’s behavior on this day is being criticized as the worst bad manners. In basketball, fouling from behind or pushing a player in the air is a taboo play. This is because it violates the spirit of partnership, and the risk of serious injury is high because it is difficult for the opponent to prepare. Even Jung Sung-woo was suffering from an injury and was forced to be more sensitive because the match against Carrot that day was before his comeback. Even the broadcasters who were broadcasting the game that day pointed out, “It’s fortunate that I didn’t get seriously injured.”

In that situation, there was not necessarily a justification for fouling. Jeong Seong-woo’s quick attack situation came from the mistakes of Jeon Seong-hyun and Carrot players themselves, who were pushed back by KT’s active pressure defense. It was already meaningless to cut off the foul because it was a perfect no-mark scoring chance in terms of timing. In the end, Jeon Seong-hyun’s foul was nothing more than an emotional vent to the opponent over a crisis he had caused by his own mistake.

But what was more shocking than this was Jeon Seong-hyeon’s actions that took place right after that. During an intense game in basketball, there are cases where the atmosphere is momentarily overheated and a dangerous hard foul is committed. Instead, it is the least manner to apologize or express regret to the opponent right after that. However, Jeon Seong-hyeon did not show any apologetic expression to Jung Sung-woo, who protested, and even pointed his finger at him. Jeon Seong-hyun openly expressed his displeasure, taking the fact that Jung Sung-woo had attacked him more as a problem than the foul he had committed. Jeon Seong-hyun is two years older than Jung Sung-woo.

Jung Sung-woo defended Jeon Seong-hyeon like a tenacious defender that day, and he could have been annoyed inside because the team match did not go well. However, Jung Sung-woo was only faithful to his role and did not do anything particularly wrong with Jeon Seong-hyun. He committed a dangerous hard foul and got excited for a while, but it should be said that the fact that he endured and backed down from the line at the mediation of his colleagues was close to restraining himself because Seong-Hyun Jeon was his senior.

Of course, in the world of sports, emotions can be momentarily heated due to the desire to compete, and often fight nerves or fights with opponents. However, even in intense competition, a minimum sense of partnership and mutual respect is required. On the court, there is no need to judge seniors and juniors, they are just colleagues who should be respected and respected fairly on an equal footing.

Jeon Seong-hyun, considered the best shooter in the league, is currently having the best season, setting various records in scoring and 3-point shooting, recording 19.89 points per game (2nd overall) and 4.03 3-pointers (1st). Ace Jeon Seong-hyeon played an absolute role in causing the new team Carrot, which was mentioned as a weak player, to make a sensation beyond advancing to the semifinals this season. Early on, the domestic player MVP this season was praised to the extent that it was no different from Jeon Seong-hyun’s reservation.

However, basketball fans are showing disappointment with the shocking behavior shown to Jung Sung-woo that day. Professional sports are an industry that exists to entertain and impress fans. No matter how good he is at basketball and his grades are good, a player who disappoints fans cannot become a star. Despite their outstanding talent and performance, there are many players who are criticized for their careless behavior.

In particular, sports fans these days who value ‘fairness’ are more sensitive to issues of character and manners. It is an instant for a tower of hard work to collapse. This is a point that Jeon Seong-hyun should seriously reflect on today’s game, which left a more embarrassing ‘black history’ than defeat.
