Although the results of the World Cup preliminaries are not very important for the Chinese team, which will host next years World Cup, and the blue teams away team is not complete, but in the course of the game, it can be clearly felt that Du Feng, as the coach, needs to take some responsibility. This may also lead to his future red and blue team merger, the national team coach in the competition behind the situation.
The list of candidates sparked controversy
There was a very noticeable anomaly in the blue teams 12-man roster before the World Cup qualifier. Du Feng took six defenders, including Guo Allen, Wu Qianqian, Yu Dehao, Hu Mingxuan, Zhou Zhandong and Lu Wenbo, half of the 12-man list, which was a rare situation in basketball matches in the past. The corresponding effect is that only one Han Dejun center was brought in.
Such a composition immediately caused considerable controversy, the focus of the controversy is whether it is necessary to bring so many guards, especially Zhou Zhandong, Lu Wenbo, such as the national team less experienced or relatively young guards, and whether the rotation of the interior line will be difficult.
But just before the discussion among the fans was over, 24 hours before the game began, the Chinese Basketball Association suddenly announced a new list of 12 players, the biggest change of which was to replace the defender Zhou Zhandong and replace Tao Hanlin into the list. In this way, let the entire teams internal and external line staffing balance a lot, but this sudden change of the list of abnormal situation, but many fans are regarded as the NBA for Du Fengs previous registration form dissatisfaction.
What is more interesting is that in this final defeat to Lebanon, the last minute replaced by Zhou Zhandongs inner line daredevil Tao Hanlin, unexpectedly did not get even a minute of playing time, and is the only team did not play. As a CBA player for many years inside the game, Tao Hanlins ability is obviously not a problem, there are no injuries, so this arrangement is somewhat incomprehensible.
Too anxious to use Guo Ailun
Apart from the controversy over the list, Du Fengs use of Guo Ailun in this match is also very questionable. In this game, Guo Allen only played sporadically in the first half of the total less than 10 minutes, and finally got 0 points, 2 assists and 2 errors data, the second half was not back on the court.
In many peoples eyes, Guo Allen in this game is really out of shape, breakthrough lack of explosive force, shooting and not to find the star. But you know, this game is the first official competition that Guo Allen took part in after the Finals earlier this year. During this period he went through a period of special training and rehabilitation in the United States, and returned to the team is not long time, because for a long time did not play five-to-five games, in training and pulled his thigh.
With nearly five months of absence and leg injuries, Aaron Guo was brought to Lebanon by Du Feng. Although Du Feng may have taken this into account in specific use, for example, he did not directly arrange for Aaron Guo to start, but played as a substitute, but it still seems that there is a way to do so. Some are too impatient.
Look at the Red Teams Ding Yan Yuhang, after the return of special training in the United States, Li Nan did not immediately arrange him to play in the Four Nations, but with the team training, until the Cup when he gradually let him play to find the feeling of the game, this way of use is not imprudent. But after the Cup break-in, Ding Yanyuhang will still encounter a bad start when he goes to the Asian Games, which shows that even high-level athletes, in the long absence of team training, it is very difficult to enter the state in a short time, to find their best feeling of competition at once.
Like Guo Allen this time, its not only difficult for him to play at the level he deserves, but it also increases the risk of aggravating the injury, which is not a reasonable choice from any angle.
Li Nan is the dominant player in the competition.
Although the Chinese Basketball Association emphasized that the two teams were side-by-side and there was no direct competition when it split the national team into two, for the upcoming World Cup in 2019, the Chinese mens basketball team after the merger must have only one coach, whether Li Nan or Du Feng, this is always in competition. Choice.
However, from the current situation, whether from this period of time to lead the teams achievements, or in the training of young players in the national team, leading the Red Team Li Nan is more advantageous. Although the Red Team has Zhou Qi, Ding Yanyuhang, such as the NBA level of local stars, but also did emerge such as Abdul Salamam in the league has not yet become the main team of dazzling new players, not to mention Liu Zhixuan, Zhao Rui, Sun Minghui, these young players are also in the national team has a good display space.
On the Blues side, although Du Feng also gave Dehao, Lu Wenbo and other league newcomers a lot of opportunities, but did not play their ability well, the game is still more seen in the league has become famous players, in the use of their own personal ability, to support the teams offensive firepower. Even the fans say that the way the blue team plays is mainly based on Zhou Pengs singles and Wus three points. In the Asian Games that ended not long ago, the Red Team led by Li Nan was a ruthless spectacle, playing the national fans satisfied with the spirit, but also helped the mens basketball team to regain the Asian Games championship. In this context, Du Fengs defeat in the world preliminaries may further lead him to lag behind Li Nan in the future national team coachs competition.
