Jeong Hyo-geun, who joined E-Land (currently Korea Gas Corporation) as the third overall pick in the 2014 Korea Basketball League (KBL) rookie draft, attracted attention as a tall forward. During a practice game in August 2021
he suffered a major injury, rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
He took the entire 2021-2022 season off, focused on rehabilitation, and returned from injury after over a year.
Last season, he averaged 10.4 points and 3.7 rebounds at Korea Gas Corporation.
Afterwards, he qualified as a free agent and wore the Cheong Kwan-Jang uniform for a compensation of 500 million won in the first year of his three-year contract.
Jeong Hyo-geun said, “Cheong Kwan-Jang is a better team than I thought.
This team is better than it looks from the outside.
It’s tight and the relationships between the players are good. “I’m having fun,” he said.
Director Kim Sang-sik’s presence played a big role in the transfer.
Coach Kim took office ahead of last season and led the team to a combined championship.
He leads the players with his unique gentle leadership. Jeong Hyo-geun said, “Director Kim Sang-sik’s style itself values autonomy within discipline.
Also, he always tells us to live happily. As a result, it is an environment where I can enjoy playing basketball, which I love. “I respect and feel grateful,” he said.
He then smiled and said, “I am a player who has never won a championship,” and then added, “I just follow along diligently. The team atmosphere is really good.
The players get along well with each other, and the trust and rapport with the manager and coaches is really good. “I trust and am following along,” he said emphatically.
I am receiving instruction from Coach Kim, who places importance on shooting.
He said, “I have bad habits, but the director catches me well. Coach Seungtae Choi and Coach Jo Seongmin also tell me right away if I have a bad habit while shooting.
I appreciate the feedback and will try to fix it,” he explained.
and build self-confidence at the same time. There is no hesitation when attacking. Director Kim applauds and encourages people even when they fail.
Jeong Hyo-geun said, “The director asks me to do things with confidence. Instead, he emphasizes not only attack, but also defense.
Even bad things must be done. If you work hard on defense first, you should be confident in your timing when attacking.
I know what you want, so I will do my best to fulfill it,” he emphasized.
Cheong Kwan Jang is currently on a 5-game winning streak with solid defense. Jeong Hyo-geun also plays an important role.
He said, “The players’ understanding of defense is really good. He told me that I should play a central role in the defense, so I am paying a lot of attention to it.
(Park) Ji-hoon and (Choi) Seong-won also do not take defense lightly.
He expressed his trust by saying, “He has the mindset that he has to play defense to win.”
Lastly, Jeong Hyo-geun said, “Rather than harvesting fruit, I try to build substance.
I have no intention of being the only one to shine. The top priority is to achieve good results as a team.
That was the most important part when signing a free agent contract. Regardless of financial issues, I wanted a team where I could play basketball happily and have fun.
He raised his voice, saying, “Thanks to Director Jeong, I think we are heading towards our goal.”
