Li Nan: I came to Jiangsu from the beginning,I hope Li Lutong will reach the upper limit of talent through hard work
News on October 14“I have never coached in the club,This seems to be a topic that everyone talks more about.”Talking about the suspicion of the outside world after the men’s basketball World Cup defeat,Li Nan said.Now he,He is already the head coach of the CBA Jiangsu Kendia team.
The Jiangsu team under Li Nan,Excluding foreign aid, the average age is only 22 years old.Only a few people in the team such as Wu Guanxi and Shi Hongfei have some popularity in CBA.Choosing such a youth army to regain control of the coach,For Li Nan who hopes to prove himself again, it is a risk.It is also an opportunity.
As Kendia Club officially announced Li Nan as the team consultant in May this year,The former national team coach has returned to people’s vision.Less than 3 months later,Li Nan walked from behind the scenes to the front desk,Became the team’s head coach.
“Be a coach,You can’t leave the team anyway.I hope that through my own efforts,Can make this team have a relatively big change.After coming down from the national team,I also did some review and reflection,After summarizing the gains and losses in coaching,Need a platform to re-verify this thing,I hope that through the experience of coaching at the grassroots level,To show a direction of team development that I understand,Maybe more time to build such a team than in the national team.”Li Nan said.
Thinking back to the World Cup,Li Nan admitted that there was a period“I am immersed in the losing of the game, sad days”.When the Chinese Basketball Association announced a coaching change in October last year,Li Nan publicly apologized through social media when he left office,Said that the Chinese men’s basketball team failed to complete the expected goal,He should bear the main responsibility.
From the perspective of coaching ability,Li Nan believes that the World Cup defeat highlights his lack of experience.“Experience is ability,Too little accumulation of games,This is the main one.The accumulation of high-level coaching sessions,I think it is still less.During my three years as the head coach of the (national team),In fact, the real intercontinental tournaments are not particularly played,Because I just participated in an Asian Games,And it is limited to Asia.”
“Come to Jiangsu,There is indeed a fresh start,The feeling of starting from scratch.In China, it actually took about 23 or 4 years from playing to coaching.But really personally coach this high-level game,Or this kind of close match,Still less,I think I should start again,To perfect these experiences in the club,Can accumulate more experience.”
Timeouts and substitutions,It was the most concentrated question of Li Nan from the outside world during the World Cup.In this regard, Li Nan said that experience and lessons need to be summarized,But at the same time, we also have to watch the problemHe said:“Suspension, substitution,I think every coach,Including the employment just mentioned,Each coach has his own habits and style.For me,You didn’t change at that moment,You can’t say that I want to change it.Right?”
“I think there were actually enough people in the rotating lineup at the time.No team can play with 12 people,You won’t see it in the World Cup either.I don’t think that if you can use it, you can do anything.Because the ball has been played now,If it weren’t for that game (Poland),Those tens of seconds,It may be another way of saying it.We are preparing for the game against Poland,In fact, the strategy is still good,This is the situation behind.So you actually have to look at this thing objectively.Of course you can’t do everything that the outside world expects.In the end, the outside world is actually questioning you,It’s because he wants to see the result in the end.”
More than two years of national team coaching career,After a World Cup competition,Li Nan believes that the Chinese men’s basketball team has two major problems at this stage: the team lacks tough training.The player’s personal ability is insufficient.
When coaching the red team,Li Nan led the team to participate in the NBA Summer League in the summer to prepare for the Jakarta Asian Games.In the history of Chinese men’s basketball,This kind of high-quality overseas training is not common.
“With Europe or the stronger American team,We still play too little,Only play that 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 these in Europe,For example, the Four Nations, Six Nations,Fighting abroad, in Europe.The ideal state is: you practice for three or four weeks,Play three or four more games,Then go to practice,But there are many practical difficulties,We can’t do this.”Li Nan said.
Playing less high-level games,The players will inevitably lose their chains in international competitions.But in the final analysis,Li Nan feels that insufficient personal ability is the source of the problem.
“I think the Chinese team is going to play at the World Cup level.There must be a normal and stable performance,Like the UAE in the national team for so many years,He is a relatively stable play,The difference is not so bad.This group of players feels that the stability is not enough.I think this has something to do with personal ability.Ability is experience,You are strong,You can handle everything,”
“We used to joke‘Bring your own system’,Like James,He brought a system of his own,This is a system where he goes.We don’t have anyone like Wilms in the CBA Finals.Including Jeremy Lin.I think we still have to take the path of team basketball,But how do you go?What style are you building on?First of all, the style of your team is your personal characteristics.Chinese basketball from the present,I think our passing is indeed a weakness,Including this absolute speed breakthrough,We used to call‘sharp knife’,‘Sharp knife’Such characters are indeed a little less.”Li Nan said.
How to improve personal ability?Li Nan believes that the key lies in whether players have higher requirements for themselves.“Our Chinese players,Especially young players,They are more satisfied,I think the sense of competition is still lacking.Without the desire to compete,He can’t find motivation.I’m very comfortable in the club.Comparing the top and the less than the bottom,This is actually quite terrible.We have been telling the team members,You must if you want,We can help you.If you don’t want it,No one can help.”
The same as coaching the Chinese Men’s Basketball Red Team,Li Nan’s most important task in Jiangsu is to train new talents.Jiangsu has undergone a major change of blood this season,Li Lutong, Tong Xin, Guo Yuzhou and Liu Jinting were promoted from the youth team,Plus Zheng Qilong from the draft,The team is in a stage of waiting to be fed.
Li Nan said:“Our team is basically all young people,Then maybe one or two‘old’a little,So maybe some (young people) are coming up first,Some people will definitely take up more game time,So you say that it’s good to liveBut the actual situation of our team now is like this,”
On the training ground of the Jiangsu Men’s Basketball Team,There is a spirit of disobedience among young people,But in technical aspects such as tactics,Still often worried that Li Nan scratched his head.It takes time to grow,During this process, Li Nan will make a request,But it will not be too demanding.
“We must have rules on the training ground,Including on the field,Within my rules,We hope he can play freely.I don’t want to make every requirement particularly harsh.Ball games especially like basketball,Especially when there are many young players,We hope they can work in a relatively relaxed environment,Can’t say enjoy,We have some basic requirements,You must reach it.As for what mistakes can be made,What wrong can not be made,We will explain this clearly to him.”
“Children now,I think they just practice less.They are at school, at home,The experience before playing is not the same as ours at that time.Because the whole big social environment is like this,How can we do well on this basis?We hope to increase training time,Strive to make up for it.second,Cultivate his spirit of enduring hardship,Don’t give up when you encounter setbacks,Hope to train and exercise them through training and normal management.”Li Nan said.
Li Nan’s 18-year-old son Li Lutong,He is a star of hope with outstanding physical talents and is favored by everyone.On the training ground,Li Nan is obviously stricter on him.He said:“I kept telling him‘With a good body like you,In the era when we played,As a coach, there is nothing to dislike.If you can’t type,Is wasting your talent.’I still hope that he can reach the upper limit of his talent through hard work.”
In the farewell speech of leaving the national team,Li Nan quoted a famous saying in “The Doctrine of the Mean:”Climbing high self-esteem,The meaning is to want to reach lofty goals,Take one step at a time.Old days,Li Nan once boarded the position of national team coach and looked far away.Now back to the foot of the mountain,He will be with his son and the young Jiangsu Kendia men’s basketball team,Start again.
