This is the evaluation of the ‘Valley Generation’, the 2009 rookie draft. Compared to the 2007 and 2008 drafts, which boasted tremendous interest and ripple effect, 2009 was a little disappointing in all respects, such as high-ranking lumber with high name value and the overall player base. It was to the point where each team’s voice of ‘no player to choose’ burst out. Point guard Park Seong-jin (36‧182cm), who played a part in Chung-Ang University’s 52-game winning streak, was ranked first overall, and left-handed tall shooter Heo Il-yeong (37‧195cm) ranked second, but the teams were not very satisfied. This is because the difference between the drafts of the previous two seasons was too great.
In particular, the voices of consolation (?) around E-Land were so loud that there was talk of a ‘dark history of the new draft’. There was a big reason why there was a lot of discrepancy, such as getting second place in years with many outstanding top-ranked candidates and getting first place in years with poor players. In fact, Samsung (Lee Kyu-seop), DB (Kim Joo-seong), KCC (Ha Seung-jin), Hyundai Mobis (Yang Dong-geun), etc., the first-ranked nominees played a big role and gave the team the championship at least once.
Kim Seung-hyun (3rd), Yang Hee-jong (3rd), Ham Ji-hoon (10th) and Kang Byung-hyun (4th) are also considered players who changed the history of their respective teams, although they were not ranked 1st. In the case of Kang Byung-hyun, who was nominated by E-Land as the 4th ranked player the previous year, he traded with Seo Jang-hoon to KCC and became the main axis of the 2nd Dynasty, changing the ‘history of other people’s teams’. On the other hand, E-Land won the first nomination right in 2009 following 2005 (Jeon Jeong-gyu), but had to be content with picking Park Seong-jin.
It is not that Jeon Jung-gyu and Park Seong-jin are greatly lacking. Both players had their own strengths, so it was clear that they were players who would add strength to the team. However, compared to competing teams that benefited from the draft’s top picks, it was unsatisfactory as a result to be rescued as the first two times. In the case of 2006, Cho Seong-min, ranked 8th, grew into an all-time great player, and even Hyun-min Lee, ranked 3rd, became a byword for long runs.
Korea University remained silent. Rivals Yonsei University and Chung-Ang University consistently produce high-ranking nominees, but in 2001, Jeon Jeon-soo (2nd place) was the last player nominated by the lottery. In 2009, it went one step further, and despite the harsh criticism that the player base was not good, no one was nominated for the first round. Choi Yoon-ho, who ranked 3rd in the 2nd round, was the only one from Korea. It was not comforting to have produced the 1st place (Kim Dong-min) in the 2nd team draft.
Rather, there was a draft that became a hot topic in 2009. This is the mixed-race draft conducted by overseas players with Korean descent. It was held on September 2, 2009 at the Education and Culture Center in Yangjae-dong, Seoul, and five candidates were nominated in the order of Tony Atkins (Jeon Tae-pung), Eric Sandrine (Lee Seung-jun), Gregory Stevenson (Moon Tae-young), Kevin Mitchell (Won Ha-jun), and Chris Van (Park Tae-yang). received Anthony Galloway and mixed-Japanese player Ryosuke Nozawa were not nominated. All teams had the right to nominate, but only five teams, KCC, Samsung, LG, KT&G, and KTF, exercised the right to nominate.
Unsatisfying No. 1 Park Seong-jin, the best choice is Orions
As mentioned before, Park Seong-jin (37‧182cm) was not a star, but he is one of the guards who continued his pro career at a decent level. The problem is that he was number 1 overall, and even the nominated team was E-Land, so it has been talked about as a failed nomination for a long time in connection with ‘E-Land No. 1 Cruelty’. In the first year of his professional debut, he won the rookie award with an average of 8 points and 3.6 assists, and was evaluated as having the ability to be a starting guard for a team.
Although he had his strengths as an offensive guard, such as his speed and shooting power, his weaknesses, such as his vision and ability to coordinate the game, were more prominent. Nevertheless, E-Land coach Yoo Do-Hoon trusted him, and he received opportunities at E-Land for a considerable amount of time and endured, but in addition to the growth of Park Chan-hee and backup guard Kim Ji-wan, who were added by trade, and newcomer Kim Nak-hyun, he was traded to KCC for free in 2019. After his trade, he didn’t play much and was forced to retire shortly after.

It is the 2009 draft that is being criticized for the quality and quantity of the overall player base along with the disappointing first pick Park Seong-jin, but it does not mean that good players have not been produced at all. In particular, Heo Il-yeong (37‧195cm) and Kim Kang-seon (36‧190cm), who were selected by the Orions in the 2nd and 8th place in the first round, are not star players representing the league, but they have left a definite mark as long-running players to the extent that they are continuing their careers to this day.
Heo Il-yeong is currently playing as a starting shooter for Seoul SK, which is currently in the championship match, and Kim Kang-seon is one of the key members of Goyang Carrot, which made a sensation in the playoffs. Heo Il-young, who is known as a steady and stable shooter, and Kim Kang-sun, who has an outside shooting ability in addition to defense and activity, are players that coaches will like.
This is because he is a type that can be used widely because of his definite specialty, and he is a sincere player who is good at managing himself. Orions fans expected both to be one-club men with the team, but they’re currently at odds with each other. Heo Il-yeong left in search of a new challenge, and Kim Kang-seon, who stayed with the Orions until the end, had to watch the process of the team being sold and founding as a new team.
To make matters worse, Carrot’s economic difficulties overlap and she is experiencing many difficulties. Heo Il-yeong is a player who knows how to help the team. Even in SK, through a play style based on movement without the ball, he is claiming to be an assistant to star Kim Seon-hyeong, and in the case of Kim Kang-seon, he has good leadership and is highly trusted by juniors as he was appointed as the first captain of Carrot.

Byun Hyeon-soo (37‧185cm) has good defense, quick breakthrough and shooting ability, so he was expected to have a long run as a sixth man, even if he is not a starting player. However, he shot himself in the foot early on. This is the case when he was charged with embezzlement about 5 months before being discharged from the military service while serving in the military for public service. After his retirement, he was stuffed as a villain character rumored among basketball fans, such as being caught by the police for threatening his fellow basketball players.

Stretch big man Kim Woo-gyeom (36‧196cm), who had excellent three middle shots, finished his career as a one-club man for SK. Since he mainly played as a sixth man, his performance itself does not look great, but it can be seen that he was a valuable player for the team just by playing consistently for a long time.

Jeon Tae-pung, a man who received a lot of love for his unique character.
As mentioned earlier, in 2009, rookie drafts, 2nd team drafts, and mixed-race drafts were held, and among them, interest in the mixed-race draft was by far the hottest. It became a hot topic every day as each story was known for a play style that was differentiated from domestic players. Among the mixed-race players, the player who received the most attention was definitely Jeon Tae-pung (US name Tony Atkins‧42‧179cm).
He expressed his earnest desire to play on the domestic stage to the extent that he participated in a tryout for foreign players the year before, and because of that, he attracted the attention of each club from a long time ago. Although he was small in height, the interest of each club in Jeon Tae-pung was considerable. He graduated from the prestigious Georgia Tech University and has performed well in Russia, France, Turkey, Poland, Croatia, Greece, and Bulgaria, so he is a top-notch point guard that no longer needs verification.
His coordination of the game, as well as his scoring ability with outstanding personal skills, were outstanding. Jeonju KCC, which had regrets with the first starter, was also one of the teams that desperately wanted Jeon Tae-pung, but at the time, coach Heo Jae-jae had no choice but to empty his mind at the lottery. It’s because it got caught on the last one in the order, the 10th. Even coach Heo, who is known for his draft luck, seemed as difficult as this. Meanwhile, a miracle happened. The ridiculous thing that all nine teams in front pulled out a bang actually happened. It was a meeting between KCC and Jeon Tae-pung, which can only be seen in cartoons.
There were mixed likes and dislikes about Jeon Tae-pung’s play style. In terms of ball handling and various skills, there were many opinions that he was superior to the top guards in Korea at the time. In addition, his athletic ability and speed were outstanding, so it was no exaggeration to say that he was a single foreign player in 1v1. However, there were voices of disappointment in vision, passing sense, and BQ.
Therefore, when he was in good condition, he dominated the game by playing drums and janggu, but in the opposite case, he often turned into a so-called reverse return. Although he has a good personality, he was also very hot-tempered on the pitch, so when he got excited, he couldn’t control his emotions and it was not uncommon for him to affect his play.
In a word, it can be said that although his individual technique is excellent, he was relatively unsatisfied with team play and was a moody player who was often swept away by emotions. He was also very proud of his skills, so he was the type who would do better if he was moderately relaxed and matched his mood, but many of the leaders confined him within a certain frame and demanded changes. Regarding this, Jeon Typhoon said after his retirement that he was under extreme stress throughout his playing career.
Jeon Tae-pung attracted attention with his flashy play style, but it is evaluated that he contributed to the rise of KBL’s popularity by building an image as a bright and pleasant character. Zira’s extraordinary affection for his mother’s country also showed a sense of intimacy among the fans. As if to prove this, Jeon Typhoon did not hesitate to actively use Korean from the beginning of his KBL debut.
There were a lot of embarrassing scenes, making quite a few mistakes in the use of words and sentences, but it is worth giving a high score for the way you persevere and actively adapt to the Korean stage with your unique wit. It can be said that she loved her mother’s country that much and that she did her best. Fans also knew his sincerity, so even if Jeon Tae-pung made a mistake, the atmosphere was rather friendly.
For a while after his retirement, Jeon Typhoon followed Ha Seung-jin’s advice and focused on entertainment. However, among the fans, ‘Entertainment is good, but Jeon Tae-pung’s skills are a waste. There were many opinions saying, ‘I hope it will be used to grow his juniors. The same was true of the party, Jeon Tae-pung. His passion for basketball was deeper than anyone else, and he was thirsty for basketball more than anyone else even while appearing on variety shows. In particular, he wants to teach basketball to children in a fun way, and he has been running a basketball class for a while now. Rather than doing it on a grand scale right away, he has said that he needs time to adapt, so he will gradually increase it over time.
◆ Tony Atkins (Jeon Tae-pung) regular league record ☞ Average 10.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1.1 steals in 425 appearances
⁕ Highest record in a game: Scores ☞ 30/10/2010 against Daegu Orions = 37 points / 3-point shot successful ☞ 30/10/2015 against Seoul Samsung = 5 / assists ☞ 12/29/2012 against Seoul SK = 13 goals / Rebound ☞ Jeonju KCC match on November 23, 2014 = 9 / Steal ☞ Anyang KGC match on November 3, 2018 = 6
Unlike the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranks that exploded properly, the 4th and 5th ranks, 2nd rank Lee Seung-jun (US name Eric Sandrine‧45‧205cm), who were regretful,
also received as much attention as the 1st rank Jeon Tae-pung. He was well known as the older brother of Lee Dong-jun (US name: Daniel Sandrin, 43, 200cm), who was playing for Daegu Orions at the time, and played as a foreign player for Ulsan Mobis the previous season, recording an average of 11.75 points and 6.63 rebounds.
Lee Seung-jun’s greatest strength was his athletic ability. With great elasticity, he boasted the elasticity of taking windmill dunks and alley oop dunks with ease, and also caught the attention of many people with his outside shooting ability. Even coach Huh, who was disappointed with the point guard, was contemplating between him and Jeon Tae-pung over the first nomination. Unfortunately, though Lee Seung-jun did well in the domestic league, he did not have the dominance of foreign players.
Amid criticism that his BQ was poor, he frequently exposed his weaknesses when defending, and his athletic ability gradually deteriorated due to multiple injuries. But as a national representative, he was different. His presence was considerable enough to show time against famous players in the NBA without being discouraged. After Seo Jang-hoon’s decline, he kept under the national team’s goal with Kim Joo-seong, and he almost monopolized the Taegeuk mark, beating out mixed-race players who showed good performances in the league, such as Jira Jeon Typhoon and Moon Tae-young, who were outstanding in their performances.

draft As time passed, among fans and officials, there was a saying that ‘LG is another winner of the draft’. It is because of Moon Tae-young (US name Gregory Stevenson‧45‧194cm). In the case of Jeon Tae-pung and Lee Seung-jun, who were ranked 1st and 2nd, they were known to some extent in terms of skills. On the other hand, many people said that it was unknown about Moon Tae-young, who was ranked third.
However, when I opened the lid, it was as good as Jeon Tae-pung and Lee Seung-jun. He wasn’t flashy, but he was a resource that could consistently score in and out of my perimeter. In particular, the mid-range was excellent, and he became the first Korean national to become the KBL scorer. However, his public popularity was not high except for his team’s fans. Not only did the character not have as much personality as Jeon Tae-pung and Lee Seung-joon, and despite playing in Korea for a considerable amount of time, the main reason was that he could not speak Korean and did not give the impression of being of Korean descent.
◆ Gregory Stevenson (Moon Tae-young) regular league record ☞ Total average of 15.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 blocked shots in 553 games

4 Unlike Jeon Tae-pung, Lee Seung-jun, and Moon Tae-young, Won Ha-jun (US name Kevin Mitchell, 43, 183.7 cm) and Park Tae-yang (US name, Chris Van, 37, 179.2 cm) did not leave much of an impact. The background of much interest in the mixed-race draft was the expectation of physical ability and technique to overwhelm domestic players, but Won Ha-joon and Park Tae-yang, let alone Jeon Tae-pung, Lee Seung-jun, and Moon Tae-yeong, exposed their lacking parts as a team starter. .
As can be seen from the fact that they spoke Korean fluently during their active duty, Jeon Tae-pung and Lee Seung-joon have completely settled in Korea. After his retirement, Jeon Typhoon started a family in Korea and recently opened a basketball school. Lee Seung-jun, who is also famous as the husband of female professional basketball star Sonia Kim, continued his relationship with basketball by working as a 3-on-3 basketball player after retirement 메이저사이트.
Moon Tae-young is a high school coach in the United States, and while playing in the domestic league, Won Ha-joon and Park Tae-yang were punished by KBL for violating player obligations in the contract by delaying renewal of the contract with their team. The situation is not well known.
