Finally decided to retire because life is not perfect
Liu Weis retirement is really a complete story. After returning to Shanghai, Liu Wei officially lost his identity as a player in his hometown of Shanghai after a new season. In fact, at the end of last season, Liu Wei and the club were hesitant about retiring. On the one hand, the teams young players need a backbone belt. On the other hand, although they are not young, Liu Weis physical quality can still win the role of players. In the last game at the end of the season, all the fans were saying farewell to Liu Weis player career. The media swarmed in and defined this moment as the last moment between Liu Wei and the stadium. However, from the stadium to the lounge, Liu Wei never said the word retirement in person. Coach Li Qiuping even joked after the game: Liu Wei can still play again, to break the CBA record.
Won the championship in 2002
At that time, Liu Wei didnt say retired. Liu Wei didnt want to fight again. Li Qiuping found him privately and asked him, how are you doing? Are you still fighting? Liu Wei gave himself some time to think, and finally he decided to bid farewell to the players career at this stage. In fact, I am in good health, and I can play for two or three years. The coach also said that you should play another season. But I dont think life can be so perfect. To reach the peak means to decline. Therefore, in my consciousness, the imperfect life is the perfect life, and I always hold such a mentality, so I can move forward slowly. Its the best option for me to step back.
From March to November, after three seasons of spring, summer and autumn, Liu Wei tried to stand in this team in another capacity. Its all natural. Over the years, he always used this sentence to explain the fate of the surrounding world. The precipitation of time makes me finally make this decision. With the team participating in many competitions, I feel that I am also slowly adapting to my identity and adjusting myself.
Liu Wei used to be a little fat man
Recently, people who saw Liu Wei would say, Why are you thin again? Few people know that after returning to Shanghai, every morning at five oclock, Liu Wei would go out on time to run. For a long time, he felt that running had brought new changes to himself. Its really wonderful to watch the city wake up from a deep sleep. Im running by the river. Theres such a morning light just like it belongs to me. Im completely quiet. I dont need to think about anything. Its very empty. Running brings Liu Wei not only physical stability, but also inner peace. It is also such more and more calm that he has more confidence in his future and the role he has just changed.
Thank you Yao Ming for coming to my retirement ceremony
The change of mood surprised Liu Wei. On the evening of November 2, the retiring ceremony of zhijingweida was grand. Old friends, family and stories were all here. The fans on the scene also created a moving atmosphere. But Liu Wei, who always said that he had developed tear glands, did not cry at last this night. The tears didnt fall down. I gritted my teeth and told myself not to cry. Liu Wei later joked with friends he knew and became a team leader and mature.
Liu Wei didnt cry out with his teeth clenched
The ceremony is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. and less than 6:00 p.m. Liu Wei is already in the hotel where he is staying. This is his first time to enter the CBA arena before the game, he put on a suit. Liu Wei also specially selected a pair of glasses, wearing them looks more stable and important. All the way from the hotel to the stadium, old coaches and old teammates are waiting for him at the door, chatting and taking photos together. The VIP lounge of Yuanshen gymnasium is full of stories of that year. For Liu Weis retirement ceremony, I just took over the long work of Shanghai Mens basketball team and did a lot of work. First, I found all the team members who won the championship with Liu Wei, and invited Liu Weis family specially. On the spot layout, I also felt very touching.
Before the ceremony officially started, Liu Wei took a deep breath. Today, he set himself a goal - dont cry, but in fact, he was still red eyed. The team-mates and coaches who won the championship in 2002 arrived, and leaders, family members and Enlightenment coaches also sat on the scene. What surprised the outside world most was Yao Mings arrival. In fact, Liu Wei, the protagonist, was spoiled in advance a few days ago. Chairman Yao will attend his retirement ceremony. So I may not be surprised tonight, but Im really moved. Everyone knows that Yao Ming is very busy at ordinary times. Thank him for coming here.
Liu Wei also told a story with Yao Ming on the spot, I remember that one night in 1997, we were going to challenge the Bayi team with Wang Zhizhi. Chairman Yao is my roommate. He had a cramp in the middle of the night. We were up for more than an hour. But because of this episode, chairman Yao said that we can win tonight. As a result, we really won team 81, and it was the first time. Since then, at the age of 17, we have not been afraid of playing and opponents, including the CBA arena and the Olympic arena. Finish saying, two people look at each other a smile, everything seems to return to the beginning.
In 2002, Yu Xiaomiao, the team leader of Shanghai team, and Li Qiuping, the coach of Shanghai Jiushi sharks, shared their happy memories. Once, friends from the national team sent video blessings to Liu Wei, and the China Basketball Association prepared a special gift for Liu Wei - rock award of China basketball team. Yao Ming sent the trophy to Liu Wei.
Next, his wife and children put on a tie to symbolize the entry of the team leader for Liu Wei. Liu Wei, who has been running around all the year, finally made his wish to settle down in Shanghai and start a new life at a predetermined time.
When I was questioned, my family was afraid that I was autistic
Its a good feeling to end up with a satisfactory ending after so long and so many things. Liu Wei has always been content. When he looks back on his 25 years of career as a professional basketball player, he sometimes regrets.
At the retirement ceremony, Liu Wei received a special gift from his teammates during the national team, Wang Zhizhi, Yi Jianlian, Du Feng, Li Nan, etc. This is also the most special part of Liu Weis memory besides his playing experience in Shanghai team for many years. Of course, this experience is not all beautiful. When the national team was questioned and even called the biggest backpot man by the outside world, Liu Wei seldom stood up and said anything. Now talking about everything at that time, Liu Wei feels that such an experience may also contribute to his change and growth.
2008 Olympic lineup
Liu Wei said that he was not a particularly expressive person. For a while, the outside world kept criticizing him, really, my family thought I was going to have autism at that time. No one knows what kind of pressure Liu Wei, who doesnt speak, has experienced. He kept on training, and training became a way of decompression. The process was unimaginable. I was very tired and sad. I went to the track and field to run, went to the field to shoot, used up my strength, went to sleep, accumulated over time. The more gas you received, the more you practiced, the better your physical fitness, and the basketball skills. So after a long time of training, it fed back to You have something.
Because I think its useless to say more, Liu Wei can only do better with practical actions. My playing time span is relatively large. For me, the whole career should be bitter before sweet. Although I have experienced a lot of disputes before, right and wrong, I ended up with a good ending. In fact, a person has gone through a section of life Its lucky to be able to go back to the origin.
The new role is too tight. Brain cells have died a lot
Liu Wei, who went back to the origin, took over the clubs offer of employment this evening, and the No. 8 Jersey was officially sealed. At present, his title is team leader, which is actually different from the job of coach. According to Li Qiuping, Liu Wei is now the role of political commissar.
Referring to Liu Weis current task in the team, Li Qiuping said: there are many things that need to be coordinated and done by Liu Wei. As a coach, I cant do them. Other Liu Wei will share some of them. He works very seriously. When we transfer jobs, we will help each other. In fact, it is not only a matter of a leader, but also a matter of a team. Our team should not worry about this. He will be familiar with the post soon. Of course, in addition, Li Qiuping and the senior management of the club still have high hopes for the team, shark back to the top slogan will inspire Liu Weis future.
Liu Wei is really adapting to his new position in this period of time. At present, there are still many old teammates of Liu Wei in Shanghai Sharks. Its not too difficult to communicate, but Liu Wei has to pay more attention to the psychological guidance and encouragement of young players. In terms of technology and tactics, Li will guide them to have a relatively perfect layout, and I will start from the spirit and style of the players more, and I will think more about how to mobilize their enthusiasm better off the field, and convert a lot of negative energy into positive energy. Liu Weis position is to play a bridge role, help the group communicate with the team, and help young players do better in psychological construction.
Some time ago, Chinas mens basketball team didnt perform well, and some young players were also depressed. Liu Wei thought that its not a bad thing for young players to encounter some setbacks in this period. What they have experienced is not comparable to what we have experienced for so many years, but in fact, the difficulties are the same. The suffering you have experienced is directly proportional to the benefits you have gained Many people think of such an encounter as a dark period, but Liu Wei said: I would like to compare it to a reserve period, a period of dawn to sprint.
Today, Liu Wei is also slowly adapting to such a new environment, but he also confessed to his friends: in fact, until now, he is still quite nervous, feeling that brain cells are dead a lot. He secretly told himself: the new role and new start will encounter many difficulties. You should treat it as the same as the difficulties encountered during the period of Liu Wei, the athlete. You should defeat them, hope to have a better development, and hope to be brilliant. Liu Wei in the athletes period will not meet in the future.
