There is a player practicing shooting alone in an empty basketball court where everyone has left. Who are you?

Anyang KGC won the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Regular League Wonju DB home game held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 9th, with Spellman and Byun Jun-hyung making a big success, winning 80-70. KGC, which ran through Pajuk’s 6-game winning streak, firmly maintained its lead, and the players came out to the court and enjoyed the joy.

The players, who enjoyed the victory while receiving applause from the home fans, thanked the fans and left the court. As time passed and all the spectators left, only some broadcasting staff and reporters remained on the court cleaning up after themselves.

But on the other side of the court, I heard the sound of a basketball bouncing. It was Darryl Monroe (37), a KGC foreigner. He was wearing a headset and practicing shooting on an empty court alone. He ran around the court and threw 2-point shots, 3-point shots, and even free throws.

Monroe played only 3 minutes and 17 seconds in the game that day, threw only one shot, and recorded 2 points and 1 rebound. Monroe’s role on the team is Spellman’s backup. When a spell man is sluggish or needs a break, he must be in good shape to come out and play. On this day, since he had little time to play, he seemed to be trying to maintain his senses by practicing shooting after the game. He was a Monroe who always tried to show that he was a prepared player. 안전놀이터

Meanwhile, Monroe is the second oldest veteran foreign player in the KBL after David Simon (41), who recently left KBL due to a knee injury. He is not a player who scores a lot, but he has a greater influence on the team than the number recorded as KGC’s second option foreign player. He is highly trusted by the coaching staff and teammates. He is an older brother who especially supports the mental side of Spell Man when he is shaken. He also serves as a coach, guiding his teammates through the details of tactics. So, his teammates call him ‘Coach D’ and follow him.

Not only that, Monroe is the first to come out to the court to practice shooting before the start of the game, and practice shooting even after the game is over, like on this day. He is a foreign player, but as an exemplary veteran, he brings positive synergy to the team and contributes to the KGC lead.
