The two, who met at the media day of the championship match held on the 23rd, did not forget their respect for each other. Warney first talked about the rivalry between the two. “We are rivals, but we are close friends. Respect each other. It is meaningful that I met good players on the final stage. I and Spellman will do my best to play a great game,” he said, revealing an exemplary answer. “Unlike other teams, KGC doesn’t use a lot of help defense. That’s why Spellman is good at defense. He has good physical condition, but also has considerable defensive power,” he said, giving thumbs up to Spellman’s defensive power.
In last season’s championship game, Choi Jun-yong was alive and Warney didn’t have long to defend Spellman. But this time it’s different. As Choi Joon-yong left due to an injury, Warney has to defend even Spellman. Warney said, “Spellman is versatile, from outside shooting to breaking through. He must be prepared for that part.”
Spellman also showed respect for Warney and SK. He said, “I know that the two-on-two play between Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney is quite good. And Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney are players who know how to lead the game to victory. I will come out more prepared in defending Warney. I am ready to do everything for a team victory rather than a one-on-one confrontation.” He admitted that “a well-deserved player took it” for giving away the regular league MVP to Warney.
