As the professional basketball court has recently shown signs of overheating, the play of some players who have lost their spirit of teamwork has been put on the chopping block.
Gauge Prim of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis raised eyebrows by making a dangerous foul that could cause serious injury to the opponent in the 2023-2024
CheongKwanJang professional basketball game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation held at Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium on the 20th.
In the early fourth quarter, while competing for the ball with Duvan Maxwell (Gas Corporation) in front of the Korea Gas Corporation bench, 카지노사이트랭크
Prim strongly pushed Maxwell toward the billboard. There was a lot of intentionality in using the elbow.
It was a dizzying moment when Maxwell jumped over the billboard and fell onto the players on the gas construction bench, and although he was not injured, serious injuries could have occurred.
Surprised, Maxwell expressed strong displeasure, and the gas construction bench also protested.
The referee, concerned that the incident could escalate into a physical conflict between players, quickly intervened.
Prim headed toward his bench without an apology, and Hyundai Mobis was busy trying to appease the excited Prim.
Through video review, the referee awarded Prim one common foul and an additional U foul.
According to KBL, the U foul given to Prim corresponds to ‘extreme physical contact (C2)’. A fine of 500,000 won will be automatically imposed in the future.
Regarding Prim’s foul, one official said, “We believe it was a scene where there was nothing to say even if a direct expulsion was given.”
Last month, Goyang Sono’s Chinanu Onuaku pushed Lens Abando (Cheonggwanjang), who was high in the air,
causing serious injury by breaking the 3rd and 4th lumbar vertebrae.
Abando has yet to step on the court. The KBL Finance Committee imposed a fine of 3 million won on Onuaku,
but controversy over the harsh disciplinary action arose. Because of Onuaku’s precedent, it does not seem likely that Prim will be punished.
Hyundai Mobis won the game today, 91-88.
In the recent fierce competition for rankings, key players are continuously injured in each club.
In fact, there are not many cases where players intentionally make dangerous plays to injure their opponents.
Unfortunately, injuries occur more often than not as each person focuses on their own play.
The reason why Onuaku and Prim’s play is heavily criticized by fans is because it is abnormal and the intention appears to be malicious.
The spirit of teamwork on the court is desperately needed. Also, it is time for the KBL to make more efforts to protect players.
