Rui Hachimura,who belongs to the Washington Wizards, responded to an online press conference on the 2nd (local time 1st, the same below), saying, “I missed the playoffs last season, but I definitely want to miss it as a team. And I think I have a lot of chances (this season), so I’ll do my best for the playoffs. “
Hachimura entered the NBA last season and recorded an average of 13.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in 48 games. With a field goal success rate of 46.6%, he was selected as the All-Rookie Second Team.
After the season, he visited Gonzaga University in the old nest and Japan and was refreshed, but he said that he hired a personal trainer about two months ago and started training. It seems that the off-season has come to make up for his own challenges.
Wizards nominates Israeli rising star Deni Abdiya at the NBA Draft 2020 on November 18th. In addition, Davis Bertans re-signed Wizards for $ 80 million for five years, adding to the layer of small forwards and power forwards. Hachimura said, “DB (Bertans) is one of the top shooters in the NBA. The offense power is high as a team, and John (Wall) will come back, so I think it will be a very fun season.” I sent it.
The wall ruptured the left Achilles tendon in the middle of the 2018-19 season and was closed the following season. Hachimura didn’t have a chance to play with him, but he said, “I knew what he would play in the video, but I think it would be completely different when he actually played. He is a point guard because of his speed, and to him. I think that the stricter mark will increase the chances of me becoming open, so three-point shooting will be the key. “
The 2020-21 season will start on December 22nd (23rd) and will play 72 games. If the NBA Finals are held until Round 7, the season will be held until July 22, so we will fight until the day before the Tokyo Olympics start. The schedule is very tight, but he said, “The Olympics are one of the tournaments I’ve always wanted to participate in. I want to concentrate on the NBA season first, but I want to think about it as the season ends.”
