15-year-old Yang JaeMin is the next Korean phenom

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Korean phenom Yang JaeMin is a baller in the making.

At 15-years-old, Yang JaeMin stands at 6 feet 4 inches and can orchestrate a one man transition to perfection. He also illustrates some above average shooting mechanics but his consistency remains questionable (please tell me that him banking in free throws are accidents and not deliberate).

Yang JaeMin’s father, Yang WonJun, was a pro basketball player in Korea and now sits as the executive secretary of the Women’s Korean Basketball League (WKBL). In 2013, Yang JaeMin competed in the FIBA U16 Asia Championships where the Korean team finished fifth. Yang JaeMin averaged just under four points per game.

    the banking of free throws is probably deliberate. oddly enough, it’s a not uncommon practice in korean basketball leagues. i don’t know about the KBL, but i’ve seen many a banked free throw in korean organized basketball.
