Super Captain Jung Changyoung’s first victory story

Busan KCC won the 2023-2024 professional basketball championship game against Suwon KT by recording four wins and one loss, its sixth career championship in 13 seasons since the 2010-2011 season. The playoff MVP was awarded to Heo Woong.

It was the first win for captain Chung since his debut at Changwon LG in the 2011-2012 season. He only won the regular season title in the 2020-2021 season. “Every moment passed in my head from the opening game until now. I feel dazed and still can’t believe it as it was my first win. I feel so good beyond words,” Chung said.

“I didn’t even think about it. The president, the owner, and the general manager were all in order. The players helped me move on to another event after the event,” said Chung Chang-young, who said with a smile, “I wonder when I will be able to get a chance to rinse my hair again. I am so grateful to the players.”

For KCC, the victory was achieved after twists and turns. With the addition of FA Choi Jun-yong, Song Kyo-chang was called a “super team,” but his start was not smooth. At the beginning of the season, the team faced a crisis of falling to eighth place. “We started the season with high expectations, and we went through ups and downs. There were many difficult times during the regular season. Personally, it was difficult, but as a captain, we had to pay attention to many things,” Chung said.

Coach Kang Yang-taek picked Chung Chang-young as the player who contributed the most. “He is a student who I cherish a lot because I was with him in LG as well. As a captain, he must have felt pressured to bring good players and win the championship. It is not easy to lead a great team. He spoke bitterly, touched my mood, and even served as a bridge between the coaching staff. I even relied on him. He noticed a part that was difficult for me to tell the players, and delivered it on behalf of him. He is a good player and captain. I want to highly praise him.”

Chung also said, “I had more conversations with my coach this season, especially. I received a lot of help from him as a captain,” while adding, “We became the whole team right before the playoff started. The players pledged not to be greedy but to become one, and I’m glad that the victory came to fruition. I want to say thank you to the players for their hard work.”

“The team beat DB in the semifinals, boosting players’ confidence,” Chung said. DB was the most embarrassing and difficult team to play against, and the No. 1 team in the regular league. After beating DB, I thought, “If I stay alert, I can win the championship.”

KCC advanced to the championship game for the first time in the fifth place in the regular league and won the championship, but Jung Chang-young had no choice but to reduce his chances of playing due to the spectacular composition of the players. The average score of 19 minutes, 42.6 seconds was the lowest since the 2019-2020 season (15 minutes, 55 seconds, 4.5 points on average) when Jung Chang-young moved to KCC.
“(Lee) must have had a harder time than me. We talked a lot with each other. I thought I should play a role for the team. I clearly had a role to play in the composition of the players. I think I should continue to play more roles to support the players.”

Chung’s victory is not just due to the twist of Super Team. Although Chung was selected eighth in the 2011 draft, he has been on the verge of retirement as he has rarely been labeled as a promising player by LG.

“It went well after I came to Korea Country Club. The team reached out to me when I was in trouble,” said Jeong, who added, “I have worked really hard from the bottom up until I came to this position. Of course, the team supported me a lot and they helped me a lot. I am just grateful. For the sake of the team, I will do my best to the end as much as I can.”

Finally, KCC’s next goal is to establish a dynasty. KCC has won six championships in total, but has never won two in a row since the days of battle with Hyundai. If it wins again next season, it will be the third time in a row after Hyundai and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis. It can also match Hyundai Mobis’ seven wins.

Jung Chang-young said, “The domestic player’s record remains the same. (Choi) Jun-yong also said in an interview after winning the championship, “I have four years left in my contract, and I will continue to win the championship.” Players feel the same way. I will prepare well to win the championship next season. (Let’s share Hyundai Mobis’ record of most wins) I will do my best to break that record.”
