DB defeated Suwon KT 107-103 after overtime in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Regular League home game held at Wonju Sports Complex in Gangwon-do on the 14th.


DB confirmed first place in this season's regular league regardless of the results of the remaining six games.


Coach Kim Joo-sung, who led the team to the regular season championship for the first time in four years since the 2019-2020 season as DB's official manager this season, expressed his feelings, saying, "I am very happy.


I was nervous, but the players worked hard until the end and confirmed the championship with a win."


He then gave credit to the players, saying, "I am a poor coach, but I am thankful that the players played well during the season so that I could learn well."


Coach Kim won the championship as a player as a member of 'Dongbusanseong' in the 2011-2012 season, and 12 years later, he lifted the championship trophy as DB's coach in the 2023-2024 season.


Coach Kim smiled and said, "I used to run around as fast as I could as a player, but now that I'm a coach, I can't do that. If we win the overall championship, I'll try first," and then added, "During my time at Dongbusanseong, it was defensive basketball, but now I can't keep my team's players at 80 points."


“I think this season’s DB is a stronger team,” he said.


Coach Kim, who achieved his fourth wire-to-wire win in KBL history with a perfect race that never lost the top spot throughout the season, chose Kang Sang-jae as his number one contributor.


Coach Kim praised Kang Sang-jae, saying, "As a middle-aged player, he seems to have led the seniors and juniors well while serving as captain," and added, "As a coach, I am very proud that Kang Sang-jae has fully developed his original skills."


Coach Kim pointed to the loss to KT in the cup competition last October as the biggest turning point.


Coach Kim said, "I thought I prepared hard, but I had a very disappointing performance in the cup competition," and "I was angry with the players and myself.


The next day, we had a video meeting for 4 to 5 hours and trained intensely for four days. “I did it,” he said, looking back.


Coach Kim said of Didrick Lawson, who scored 47 points that day, "He is a player so great that I can't put it into words.


Even when his condition is poor, he tries to contribute in other areas.


Thanks to Lawson, the team is maintained to some extent.


His presence is great."


"He supported his foreign player's Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.


Coach Kim announced that he would distribute playing time to key players in the regular league.


Coach Kim said, “I will discuss with the coaches and come up with a plan,” and added, “Coaches Han Sang-min and Lee Gwang-jae had a heated discussion, sometimes raising their voices.


It seems like they had fun together, not just the coaches alone.”


Now, Coach Kim’s eyes are set on winning the championship.


Coach Kim said, I always thought it was a crisis, so I came this far."


There was no team that won easily," and "I don't know which team will make it to the playoffs because the competition for rankings is in the fog, but I will be fully prepared.


I will watch the remaining games carefully." I strengthened my motivation.


Meanwhile, KT's coach Song Young-jin said, "I think the result was like this because of the lack of concentration and quick attacks.


I will do my best to compete for the rankings," but added, "I congratulate Coach Kim Joo-seong and the coaching staff.


We have achieved good results and created a great team."


“I think I made it,” he said.
