Giving DB ‘doo’ wings to the unruly

Professional basketball’s Wonju DB has defied all expectations at the start of the 2023-2024 season. With a 14-2 record after 30 days, the team is in sole possession of first place. They have a four-game lead over the second-place Suwon KT and Seoul SK. The key to DB’s dominance is the outstanding play of its core players, including newcomer Didrik Lawson, as well as existing members Kim Jong-kyu (32), Lee Sun Albano (27), and Kang Sang-jae (28). Choi Seung-wook (30), Park In-woong (23), Kim Young-hyun (32), and Lee Yong-woo (24) also have a lot of 스포츠토토 Altoran-like performances.

They add wings to this tough DB. Former Most Valuable Player (MVP) and “original ace” guard Doo Kyung-min (32-photo) is in the early stages of a comeback.

Doo is a specialty guard who won the regular season MVP in the 2017-2018 season. He averaged 16.4 points and 3.8 assists in 47 games, leading his team to the top of the league. He hasn’t missed a year since, posting double-digit scoring averages every season. However, he suffered a season-ending knee injury last season and has yet to play a game this season. He’s been rehabbing, and now he’s close to returning.

Doo Kyung-min made his debut in the 2023-2024 KBL D-League against SK on April 29. He played all 10 minutes of the first quarter, but didn’t score, and was subsequently held out of the game to manage his condition. After the game, Doo said, “My knee is fine, but I’m still only at about 60 percent,” and laughed, “It feels good to play after a long time.”

There is no exact timeline for Doo’s return to the regular season, but he is expected to be back on the court in December. Doo’s return will be a welcome one for DB, whose depth will be even thicker. They’ll be able to stockpile the stamina of their starting guard, Lee Sun Albano, and have more options on offense with Doo’s ability to break through. DB‘s offense, which is averaging 93.6 points per game this season, the most among the 10 clubs, will be even sharper.
