As a representative of overseas players, the 17-year-old Zeng Fanbo was selected as a 4-star high school student in the United States this year (ranked 34th in the United States), and was also selected for the current Chinese men's basketball team.
After the 20-day training camp, Zeng Fanbo accepted an interview with Netease Sports and said that the domestic players he admired were
Zeng Fanbo: Whether on or off the court,
Zeng Fanbo: Although this training camp was only 20 days and not very long, I also learned a lot and learned a lot. First of all, I am very grateful to Director Du, the coaching staff and the Basketball Association for giving me the opportunity to experience the national team. At the same time, I also hope that I can slowly bring these 20 days of experience back to my daily life, no matter what I next Where to train in a year, whether at home or abroad, I hope to incorporate the spirit I learned in these 20 days-not only on the court, but also the patriotism off the court, and gradually integrate these into my life. I also hope that I am worthy of the clothes I wear, and I will work harder after class, and I will work harder to prove myself in the next year. Although the age of this training camp may be relatively young, but I think that being young is not a reason or excuse. You need to work harder to prove yourself and strive to be selected for the national team training list next time.
Zeng Fanbo: Although the 20-day training is very short, my impression of everyone and the relationship between us on and off the court are very good, so I can't pick it out. I prefer players who are relatively leaning toward teamwork, who can respond more on the court and actively drive young players so that they can also participate in the game and confrontation.
Zeng Fanbo: Take my first home game as an example. It was the first game of my sophomore year in high school. Because our team has undergone reconstruction and its strength has improved a lot. The first game was at home, so the atmosphere was better. . Just in time for an event in the university circle, all students, parents and friends will come to cheer for us. I feel that in that atmosphere, it might be helpful for us to play. We can enjoy the game more and give full play to our technical characteristics and strength.
Zeng Fanbo: We have a lot of private exchanges. Like when I first started playing in the United States, they would give me advice on how to better get along with my teammates and survive in the team; then when I slowly adapt to life in the United States and start facing the problems of college, they can also Give me more suggestions on how to choose a university that suits you, instead of just looking at these rankings. Will teach me how to adapt to the American basketball system, as well as interpersonal relationships, and more of it is a standard for choosing schools between universities.
Zeng Fanbo: Personally, I prefer the 3 position. But in this small ball era, I don't divide too many positions, just according to the coach's request. I went all out to do what the coach asked me to do well on the court.
Zeng Fanbo: I think everyone has his own characteristics, so I haven’t deliberately imitated anyone’s characteristics. It’s just that I might take everyone’s good things to learn and absorb, and to understand and change those bad habits. Just try to hit yourself.
Zeng Fanbo: I like a lot of players in China, like me with the same position, same height, and possibly the same technical characteristics, I prefer Sun Yue on the court; in the FIBA, like the NBA, I prefer Kevin Durant a bit more. Because his offensive methods and physical talent are both top-notch, it is worth learning.
Zeng Fanbo: My father has taken me personal training since I was young, and then I gradually like basketball. I was around 11 or 12 years old, yes
Zeng Fanbo: I have been training with my father since I was a child. He taught me not only some basic skills from a young age, but also some volitional qualities, which can not be easily given up when encountering difficulties. Like basketball training, many children find it boring, so my father taught me how to persevere.
Zeng Fanbo: After this training camp, I will return to the Beijing Shougang reserve team for the next step of training, and maybe prepare for the National Games. The school in the U.S. still cannot go back, so it’s just online classes. When the season resumes there, I will rush back as soon as possible to make up for the season, continue to play with the team, and go to school there.
