‘I’m forty soon… ‘ There is Ham Ji-hoon who can do everything, Hyundai Mobis, always a strong team
In a few weeks, I will be 40 in Korean age. I can’t run as fast as time passes, nor can I jump high. Even so, the influence on the court is super special. Not only does he consistently record points, rebounds, and assists, but he also plays a significant role in defense. He literally does everything, and his team naturally forms a new structure. This is the story of Ham Ji-hoon (38) of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, who is ranked among the best big men in the 21st century.
You can see his influence just by looking at the game. It is no exaggeration to say that Hyundai Mobis with Ham Ji-hoon on the court and Hyundai Mobis sitting on the bench are two different teams. He scores from under the goal with his unique soft and sophisticated movements, and his role as a control tower from the outside is also perfect. He is good at outside shots and naturally draws in the opponent’s defense. When the defense is attached, it is a kick-out assist for foreign players, high and low, or native shooters.
The same was true of the Jeonju KCC game on the 12th. While inducing Gage Prim to score an easy under-the-goal shot with a pass from the outskirts, he made an open three-point shot against Kim Guk-chan, Kim Young-hyun, and Seo Myung-jin. If the defense did not stick, he neutralized the KCC team’s defense by making a 3-point shot. It is not an exaggeration to say that Ham Ji-hoon is at the center of Hyundai Mobis, where young blood such as Prim and Avarientos foreign players, Seo Myung-jin, and Lee Woo-seok are the main players.
The most surprising part is the consistency. Last season, he digested all 54 games, and this season, he is also perfect for 20 games. Even though he is in a big man position with a high risk of injury, he always stands on the court. He said before the season, “I am confident that I can play an active part as long as I don’t get hurt. That’s why Ji-Hoon Ham, who promised that the biggest goal is not to get hurt and manage well,” has played in every game, and Hyundai Mobis is also always positioned as a strong team. The 2019-2020 season, when the season was suspended due to Corona 19, was at the bottom, but it is running second in the 2020-2021 season, fourth in the 2021-2022 season, and second again this season. 토토사이트
The motto of Hyundai Mobis is ‘to win while growing’. Seo Myung-jin, Lee Woo-seok, Kim Dong-jun, Shin Min-seok, Philippine express Avarientos and Prim were all born in 1999 and are 23 years old. As they gain experience and grow, the odds of Hyundai Mobis’ 8th win will increase. Of course, just playing games doesn’t mean growing. The role of veterans is absolutely important in winning as victory induces faster growth than defeat. With Ham Ji-hoon, who has won 6 out of 7 championships, Hyundai Mobis is also holding both the present and the future.
