Non-gentleman fouls, broken back bones, concussion… Nevertheless, the KBL’s “Soft-Band” disciplinary action controversy…

Chinanu Onuaku, a foreign player from Goyang Sono in the professional basketball league, was fined 3 million won (approx. The referee only received a warning. This is the KBL’s disciplinary action against non-gentleman fouls that led to serious injuries such as a fractured lumbar spine of the opponent player.

KBL announced on the 30th that it has decided to take such disciplinary action at the 29th financial committee meeting at the KBL Center in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. Onuaku will be fined 3 million won for non-gentlemanly conduct, and referees Lee Seung-moo, Kim Baek-kyu and Lee Ji-yeon, who played the game, will all be issued warnings citing their inexperience in operating the game. 경마사이트

The situation in question came in a match between Goyang Sono and Anyang Jeonggwanjang in the third round of the 2023-24 professional basketball league held at Sono Arena in Goyang on the 28th. Lens Avando jumped high to win the rebound. Onuaku pushed Abando’s hip in the air with his hand. Abando lost his balance and fell from his waist.

He could not help but be concerned about his serious injury. Abandon also lay face down on the court for a long time and complained of pain. After the game, coach Kim Sang-sik said, “Abandon couldn’t bend his waist. He needs to be diagnosed at a hospital.” According to the team, Abandon was also found to have fractured lumbar vertebrae 3 and 4, sprained wrist ligaments, and concussion. He needs rehabilitation and rest for at least four weeks.

The problem is that there was no choice but to doubt the intentionality, and even though the opponent was seriously injured, we have no choice but to tilt our heads as to whether the sanctions and the referee’s warning are reasonable. First of all, the KBL referee reportedly concluded that Onuaku’s foul was “not intentional,” and when Onuaku’s actions were combined in the scene at the time, it was inevitable to suspect an intentional foul, not an inevitable foul in a competitive situation.

In particular, it is self-evident that the act of pushing a player in the air by hand inevitably leads to serious injury, and if the act contained intention, the disciplinary action needed to be heavier. Nevertheless, it is expected that the only warning against the players who committed the foul and the judges who failed to properly grasp the scene and judge the scene will inevitably spread to the so-called “slap disciplinary action.”

Amid the KBL`s decision, even Avando had to leave the team, with many players already injured. Avando, who is in severe pain, also has to devote a long time to rehabilitation. Onuaku, on the other hand, is able to play the court immediately after paying a penalty. The same holds true for the judges who were given sloppy warning and disciplinary action.
