Samsung’s Choi Seung-wook ‘confident to overcome and create a presence’ in ‘infinite competition’

It’s endless competition mode.

Seoul Samsung forward Choi Seung-wook (30, 191 cm, forward) is facing the inevitability of competition in a different depth chart.

Choi averaged 5.2 points and 3.1 rebounds last season, both career highs. After making his debut with Jeonju KCC (now Busan KCC) in the 2016-17 season, Choi played for Changwon LG (2020-23) and has been with Samsung since last season. He averaged 17 minutes and 54 seconds per game, the most of any player in the league.

After such a successful season, Choi was faced with the off-season and was participating in team training, 먹튀검증 where he had begun a new form of call-up training in order to step up to the next level.

“Now I’m facing free agency,” he said on Friday. I have to work harder.” He began the interview by saying, “I had a bad season. I had a lot of salary cuts and was disappointed. I thought I had to work harder, and last season wasn’t bad.”

Choi Seung-wook continued, “The team performance was not too good. The things that the coach wanted, the defensive things, weren’t bad. Offensively, I was satisfied with the season. Personally, I’d like to give myself around 80 points, but the team’s performance is the first priority.”

Choi Seung-wook added, “I was mainly given 3&D rolls. I was active, and my success rate wasn’t bad. I focused a lot. I was a little impatient on offense. I had to make sure to take care of it when I had a chance,” he said.

Choi Seung-wook is one of the most active and specialized defensive resources. He was recognized for his defensive prowess at Kyung Hee University and has been playing as a sixth man ever since. However, compared to his defense, his offense is somewhat lacking, especially his decision-making.

“We need to show a lot of offense in the off-season,” Choi said. I will focus more and work hard. I want to show that I’m good at it,” he said, adding, “We also need to work on our teamwork. We often block aces. There’s a physical burden when you’re also attacking. We need to balance it out. I need to be balanced. I need to be decisive in my chances.”

Choi Seung-wook continued, “I don’t think it’s any different for any player. I would like to be given more roles this year. (Lee) might get less time because Dae-sung is here. Still, it’s not different that I have to work harder. Practicing and competing are different. I’ll be more focused.”

Choi Seung-wook is now a middle-aged player. He has to look out not only for himself but also for his juniors.

“There are many younger players. I have to play the role of an older brother. But (Lee) Dong-yup is so good. I’ll support him well. And we have a lot of friends: (Choi) Sung-mo, (Yoon) Sung-won, (Kim) Hansol and (Kim) Jin-yong. It’s solid. We can pull together.”

Finally, Choi Seung-wook said, “My depth has definitely improved. If we don’t have any injuries, we will definitely improve our performance. I also want to show a good performance in a positive internal competition, and my goal is to advance to the playoffs.”

Choi Seung-wook is now an experienced 3&D resource. He seems to have a clear understanding of his role in the team’s quest to advance to the PLO. Internal competition is inevitable. Choi Seung-wook said he will overcome it.
