Recently, the former Chinese men's basketball coach and current Jiangsu Kendia men's basketball coach Li Nan accepted an interview with The Paper and talked about the relevant topics of last year's Men's Basketball World Cup and coaching the league team for the first time.
"As a coach, you always can't leave the team. I hope that through your own efforts, you can make this team have a relatively big change. After coming down from the national team, I also made some reviews and reflections, and summarized the peace in coaching. After the loss, I need a platform to reconfirm this thing. I hope that through the experience of coaching at the grassroots level, I can show a direction for the development of the team that I understand, and may have more time to build such a team than in the national team."
"When I came to Jiangsu, I really felt like starting over and starting from scratch. In China, I actually spent about 23 or 4 years from playing to being a coach, but I really personally coached such a high-level game, or this kind of very There are still fewer close matches. I think we should start over again and improve these experiences in the club so that we can accumulate more experience."
"Pause and change people. I think every coach, including the employment just mentioned, every coach has his own habits and style. As for me, if you didn’t change at that moment, you can’t say that I want to change. Alright, right?"
"I think there were actually enough people in the rotating lineup at the time. No team could play with 12 people, and you wouldn't see it in the World Cup. I don't think it would be possible to use him if possible. , Because the ball has been played now, if it weren't for the (Poland) game, those tens of seconds might be another way of saying it."
"We are preparing for the game against Poland. In fact, we have done a good strategy in terms of strategy. This is why we have the situation behind. So you actually have to look at this thing objectively. Of course you can't do everything with The outside world expects the same. In the end, the outside world is actually questioning you because in the end he wants to see the result.
"We still play too little with Europe or the stronger American team. We only play a few games a year. In these warm-up matches in China, because fighting at home does not feel the same, we actually need more. To participate in this kind of (NBA) summer league, including those in Europe, such as the four-nation tournament, the six-nation tournament, and play abroad or in Europe. The ideal state is: you practice for three weeks, four weeks, and then play three games , Four games, and then go to practice, but there are so many practical difficulties, we can not do this."
"I think the Chinese team must have a normal and stable performance to play at the level of the World Cup. Like the United Arab Emirates for so many years in the national team, he is a relatively stable performance, and the difference is not too bad. I think that the team members are not stable enough. I think this has something to do with personal ability. Ability is experience. If your ability is strong, you can definitely handle everything."
"We used to jokingly called'bring your own system'. For example, James, he brought his own system, and that is the same system where he went. We don’t have people like Wilms in the CBA Finals, including Jeremy Lin. ."
“我们曾经开玩笑地称自己为“自带系统”。例如，詹姆斯，他带来了自己的系统，那是他去过的系统。我们在CBA总决赛中没有像威尔姆斯这样的人，包括林书豪（Jeremy Lin） ……”。
"I think we still have to take the path of team basketball, but how do you go? What style do you build on? First of all, the style of your team is the characteristics of your players. For the time being, Chinese basketball, I think our tradition The ball is indeed a weakness, including this type of absolute speed breakthrough, which we used to call the'sharp knife', and the'sharp knife' is indeed a bit less."
"We Chinese players, especially young players, have a strong sense of contentment, and I think they still lack a sense of competition. If there is no desire to compete, he can't find motivation. Staying in the club is very comfortable. There is more than the better than the worse. , This is actually quite terrible. We have been telling the players that you must only want it to help you. If you don’t want it, no one can help."
"Our team (Jiangsu Men's Basketball) is actually basically all young people, so there may be one or two'older', so there may be some (young people) who will come up first. Some people will definitely take up more. The time of the game, so you said it’s good to play, but the actual situation of our team is like this.
"We must have rules on the training ground, including on the court. Within my rules, we want him to be able to play freely. I don't want to make every requirement particularly harsh. Ball events, especially basketball, , Especially when there are many young players, we hope that they can be in a relatively relaxed environment, can not say enjoy, we have some basic requirements, you must meet. As for what mistakes can be made, what can not be made, We will explain this to him clearly."
"The children nowadays, I think they just practice less. Their experience in school, at home, and before playing ball is different from ours at that time, because the whole big social environment is like this, so how do we do it on this basis? Good? We hope to increase the training time and strive to make up for it. We must cultivate the spirit of enduring hardship and not give up when encountering setbacks. We hope to train and exercise them through training and normal management."
"I have been telling him,'I have such a good body like you. In the era when we played, there was no dislike for coaches. If you can't play, you are wasting your talent.' I still hope he can. Reach the upper limit of his talent through hard work."
