Dae-seong Lee laughed in the Asia Quarter match between ‘Philippine handsome man’ Ramos
Lee Dae-seong (33, Mikawa) laughed during the Asia quarter match against Dwight Ramos (25, Hokkaido).
Lee Dae-sung’s team, Seahorse Mikawa, defeated Levanga Hokkaido 84-65 in the ‘2023-24 Season B League Regular League’ held at Wing Arena Kariya, the home stadium of Aichi Prefecture, Japan on the 21st. Mikawa recorded 2 wins and 3 losses on the season.
Japanese professional basketball has three foreign players, so two can be on the court at the same time. Here, Asian quota or mixed race players can be added. Naturalized players are considered domestic players if they acquire Japanese nationality. There is even a scene where four black players play on one team.온라인카지노
Daesung Lee started with Mikawa’s best 5. Coincidentally, his opponent was the same Asian quarter player, Dwight Ramos, the ‘handsome boy of the Philippines’. Ramos looked at the forward, but he was 193cm tall, the same as Lee Dae-seong, so he was easily able to match him.
In Korea, Dae-Seong Lee was the main ball handler. In Japan, the initiative was given to the Japanese guard and he played as number 3. Lee Dae-seong, who was caught on a screen, gave up the first shot to Ramos. Ramos beat Lee Dae-seong with his personal skills and even hit a 3-pointer. Dae-Seong Lee immediately responded with a 3-point shot. Lee Dae-seong’s aggressiveness remained, as he rushed into the stands chasing loose balls. Mikawa took the lead with 9-7.
Basketball in Korea and Japan was different. Lee Dae-seong played a larger role in defense than attack. Since two foreign players were playing at the same time, the ball did not go even when Lee Dae-seong was empty on the outside. Daesung Lee focused on Ramos defense. Mikawa led the first quarter 23-17.
Japan has a lot of rotation, so the dependence on starting players was low. Lee Dae-seong, who headed to the bench late in the first quarter, re-entered the court with 4 minutes and 13 seconds left in the second quarter. Dae-Seong Lee immediately threw a good pass to foreign player Jack August. Lee Dae-seong received 2 points through a cut-in. Lee Dae-seong, who caught the ball just before the end of the first half, whipped it around with a dribble and then scored a pull-up jumper. Dae-seong Lee’s last-minute performance gave Mikawa a 7-point lead in the first half, 42-35.
Lee Dae-seong clearly showed his sense of scoring by adding 2 points in the second half. Lee Dae-seong caught the ball as a ball handler and broke through, earning a foul. Dae-seong Lee added 2 free throws and scored 11 points. The B League definitely has fewer foul calls than the KBL. No fouls were called due to tolerable physical contact. However, no player protested while looking at the referee. The player who fell also got up immediately and returned to the backcourt.
As Lee Dae-seong was on the rise, Mikawa led by 19 points, 64-45, in the middle of the third quarter. Coach Ryan Richman Mikawa called the starting players, including Lee Dae-seong, to the bench. Dae-seong Lee ended the game by assisting a decisive 3-point shot to go up 84-61 with 1 minute and 30 seconds left.
On this day, Lee Dae-seong scored 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists with good sense, hitting 4 out of 6 field goals. He also threw and succeeded in one 3-point shot, and there were no mistakes in the two free throws. However, because the proportion of foreign players was too high, Lee Dae-seong did not have an opportunity to attack. Even if Lee Dae-seong had good sense, he couldn’t save him. The team was already ahead by 20 points in the second half of the third quarter, so Lee Dae-seong had few opportunities to play.
Lee Dae-sung’s matchup opponent, Ramos, also performed well, scoring 16 points, including three 3-pointers. This is a point where you can understand why Japan spends a lot of money to recruit Asian quota players. In Japan, where competition was not limited to skin color other than basketball skills, competition was truly endless.
Daesung Lee continues to take on challenges every day by playing in a new position in a new league. Although he clearly received great support from Japanese fans, there was no one-sided support for Lee Dae-sung like there was in Korea. He is fighting a lonely battle in a foreign country for a new challenge in basketball.
