The new Chinese men's basketball team ended 20 days of short-term training. This young team with an average age of less than 21 years old, Hu Mingxuan served as the captain.
In an interview with Netease Sports, Hu Mingxuan said that being the captain of the men's basketball team is an inspiration to him. As a member of the Ten Champions, he has a different view in the face of pressure. on
Hu Mingxuan: First of all, the training team is very grateful to the entire coaching staff, including the Basketball Association, for allowing me to be the captain of the training team. For me, it is also an inspiration and a training. Because in the new national training team, I also played in the CBA for three years, and my age is not the youngest, but it is considered older among them. So for me, it is not only about organizing everyone on the field, but also for some life off the field. It requires me to organize everyone more like a team.
After coming here, as the captain, I have a heavier burden on myself. I have a sense of responsibility and a sense of mission in the national team, which urges me to lead everyone in a more united manner. It is like a big family to protect the team. . Although my goal is to be in these short 20 days, I still want to learn something more about improving my mind. I must keep in mind the things the coaches arrange and talk about, and bring them to the club. To demand oneself according to the standards of the national team, it can be regarded as one of their own feelings.
Hu Mingxuan: I think many people are the idols of the national team. I believe most athletes learn from Liange. Because whether he is in the club or in the national team...I think he is Liange, I believe it is a role model for many people. His fighting spirit on the court, as he is his age, he still competes for every ball. He has an unreserved attitude when he is on the court. It is an example for everyone.
Including that he played the latter game in the club, he also had to bring injury to the battle, set a good example for our young people, like a pillar. Liange was also unfortunately injured after hitting the back, but the team eventually won the game. His spirit is worth learning. I also hope that Liange can recover as soon as possible and return to the court as soon as possible.
Hu Mingxuan: In the international basketball world, I think from the time when I was in the third team of the club, when I was very young, I heard of Rubio, the Spanish "golden boy". At that time, he participated in international competitions at the age of 18. he. Later I grew up a bit and saw him play very freely. Although he does not have very good athletic talent and physical fitness, he is very mature in reading and handling the ball on the court, and the entire Spanish team plays very smoothly. I think he is a player I admire very much, and I can also learn a lot of his experience and handling the ball from him, because it is closer to some of our Chinese players-not very good physical fitness, but can play some efficient and amazing His performance, so he is a player I admire very much.
Hu Mingxuan: It should be considered that when I graduated from elementary school, I had a chance to
Hu Mingxuan: I think first of all I am very lucky to be able to come to such an excellent team, including the national team, to train myself. So I think there will be pressure, and I believe it is more to turn this pressure into motivation. Because after you are on the court, don't think too much about some factors outside the court, and enjoy the game. Do some of the normal exercises that you usually train on the court, and turn this pressure into a motivation. Even if you don’t play well, don’t burden yourself too much. I think as a young player, you must dare to try and enjoy yourself on the court To show yourself, I think it's normal. Even if you make a mistake, you can summarize it yourself through the video below. The most important thing is how to maintain a normal mind and not put too much pressure on yourself.
Hu Mingxuan: I think that some of the strict instructions given by Director Du on the court must be understood correctly for our players. Because as a coach, he uses very direct language to tell you directly in such a fast-paced game on the court. I think it is his expectation of you. I think this kind of thing needs me to think in another way, aiming at understanding s things. As for being afraid of him, I think it is a kind of respect from the coach and the players. His coach pointed out the problem to you, you just need to sum up humbly, and you need to make changes on the court. I think this is normal, and we need to understand it correctly.
He is often like a brother off the court, always joking with each other when there is nothing wrong with our players. He is also a very responsible and very warm coach on the court. Because he will be on the court according to some of your performance on the court, including your mentality, your heart, whether it is appropriate to joke with you or tease you, it is also very harmonious off the court. He also has a completely different style off the court.
Hu Mingxuan: First of all, this year's offseason is also very short. Due to the epidemic, the league ended relatively late, and the new league will begin soon. So this offseason I think is to bring the 20 days of gains from the national training team, including some ideological and physical gains back to the club. I think it is more of an ideological improvement. Because I was selected for the Chinese Men’s Basketball Training Team this time, as the captain, I have a stronger sense of responsibility and mission. I can bring it back to the club to constantly supervise myself and give myself a high index to spur myself. I still need to improve my body, because my strength still suffers from some strong confrontations. I think my strength still needs to be continuously strengthened. How to better organize everyone on the court and handle the ball? It requires continuous improvement.
