The 2023-2024 professional basketball championship game, which attracted a lot of attention due to the 'brother match' between Heo Woong (KCC) and Heo Hoon (KT), was a famous game in which Heo Woong was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Heo Hoon also performed at an MVP level on the runner-up team.

It ended with Busan KCC won 88-70 against Suwon KT in the 5th game of the 2023-2024 Jeong Kwan-Jang Professional Basketball Championship (4 wins out of 7) held at KT Arena in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 5th.

KCC, which ended the series with 4 wins and 1 loss, returned to the top of professional basketball 13 years after the 2010-2011 season.

Heo Woong was selected as playoff MVP with 18.8 points and 5.4 assists in this championship game. 카지노사이트

It has been 26 years since his father, former national team coach ‘Basketball President’ Heo Jae, was selected as playoff MVP in the 1997-1998 season.

In the 5th game on this day, he scored 21 points, the most in the team, leading KCC to an 18-point victory.

Although younger brother Heo Hoon finished the season in second place, his performance stood out.

In this game, he scored the most points of both teams with 29 points.

Heo Hoon was on the court playing the full 40 minutes in games 2 to 5 of the championship match.

He had been in poor condition since the semi-final playoffs against Changwon LG, and during the championship game, he was in poor condition due to a cold.

However, he showed his fighting spirit without resting even for a second from the second game onwards.

It was such an impressive performance that Heo Woong received 31 votes in the press MVP voting, followed by La Gun-ah (KCC) with 27 votes, and Heo Hoon received a whopping 21 votes.

Heo Hoon, who scored 37 points in Game 3 and 33 points in Game 4, scored 29 points in Game 5 that day and worked hard to advance the game to Game 6, but ended up finishing the season as is.

Heo Hoon's MVP-level performance of the runner-up team, which recorded 26.6 points and 6 assists in this championship match, is reminiscent of former coach Heo Jae's active days.

Former coach Heo Jae, while playing for Busan Kia, finished second with 3 wins and 4 losses in the 1997-1998 season championship match against Daejeon Hyundai in a close match that lasted until the 7th game.

However, at this time, the playoff MVP was former coach Heo Jae, who was on the runner-up team.

This is the only time in the history of professional basketball, which began in 1997, that a playoff MVP emerged from a runner-up team.

Former coach Heo went on the court virtually wearing a half cast due to an injury to his right back and scored 29 points in the first game and 30 points in the second game.

Moreover, the photo of former coach Heo Jae bleeding from a tear above his right eye during the game is a famous scene that still evokes nostalgia among old fans.

Heo Hoon's performance in the championship game this season was dazzling enough to remind him of his father's performance 26 years ago, but the team lost, causing disappointment among fans.

Heo Woong followed in his father's footsteps and became the first 'generational MVP' in professional basketball history, and as Heo Hoon also performed above the MVP level, this championship game became a stage where the famous feast of 'sibling competition' continued with plenty of attractions.
