“The best coach in my professional life” Lawson and Kim Seung-gi, a perfect match

 Didric Lawson picked Kim Seung-gi as the best coach in his professional life.

Goyang Carrot Didric Lawson started on the 19th at the Goyang Gymnasium in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Seoul Samsung, recording 34 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists in 29 minutes and 13 seconds. Carrot, with Lawson and Jeon Seong-hyun (19 points) playing an active role, won 92-86 after a tight game.

Lawson, who we met after the game, said, “Samsung was a fierce opponent. Although the team is not ranked well, they worked hard to face us. We couldn’t lose, so we thought about how to fight, and we figured it out quickly and were able to win.”

During the 2020-2021 season, Goyang Orion, Lawson served as the second option after Jeff Widdie. Devin Williams, who had joined as a substitute for Widdy, was sluggish and was practically close to the first option. Lawson averaged 26.3 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 22 minutes and 35 seconds in 54 games. 스포츠토토

Lawson, who joined as the first option this season, averaged 18.6 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 42 games, averaging 28 minutes and 12 seconds. It is a record that has risen in most indicators. When asked how it is different now from when he first came to KBL, Lawson said, “When I was at Orion, I played less time. He thought it was important to score in that short period of time. Right now, my playing time is guaranteed, so I am taking on a different role.”

Coach Kim Seung-gi is famous for giving whips to players without hiding them. He strongly reprimanded several players this season as well. Even though director Kim Seung-gi is like that, he doesn’t say anything about Lawson other than praise.

At the beginning of the season, Lawson praised Lawson for his outstanding performance, saying, “I am not good at selecting foreign players.” I asked Lawson what the chemistry with director Kim Seung-gi was getting closer to. Lawson said, “He is the best coach I have ever met in the professional world. Even if I have a bad performance, I joke with the words to do better in the next game. I think my performance can be better because it gives me trust.”
