Niubball有一个新的抄写员。世界,见到肯尼亚棕色。目前位于北京,肯尼亚在中国度过了11年,其中一半已在河北省保定。在马里兰大学政府和政治学士学位和英格兰肯特大学的国际关系学士学位,肯尼亚现在是中国中央电视新闻内容的新闻编辑。他还贡献了关于涉及中国的体育相关问题的文章中国体育评论博客并涵盖了美国的足球新闻Yanks Abroad网站。

Kenya’s biggest basketball moment, playing-wise, was when he scored the game-winning basket for his junior varsity team in Germany back in 1991 in front of hostile crowd of 25 people. As he is usually busy with work, Kenya has yet to see a live CBA game. However, he considers seeing Guangdong Southern Tigers assistant coach Jason Dixon walking along Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong with his family as his biggest CBA moment so far.

For his opening piece, Kenya discusses China’s young generation of back-to-the-basket centers and wonders how well their games could translate in today’s NBA.

With the new National Basketball Association season well underway in the United States and the Chinese Basketball Association getting its first four rounds of games under their belt, I guess it would be no better time than to start throwing in my two cents on basketball in the Middle Kingdom.

If you have not been sleeping under a rock in the past month or so, you probably have heard that the NBA has decided to do away with voting for the center position in this season’s All-Star Game which is scheduled to take place in Houston, Texas. In its place fans will select their three preferred front court players as well as two guards.

There is no doubt that this is a sign that the league has evolved over time with such seven footers as Dirk Nowitzki showing their offensive prowess facing the basket and shooting from mid or long-range rather than with their backs to it.

这也表明,由于大多数球队在五个斑点中使用了电力前进,背向篮中中心是一种垂死的品种。只是阅读APN文章,其中abdul-jabbarexpressed his opinion on the declining trendshows how much the position is on the verge of extinction.

当威尔特张伯伦,比尔罗素,阿卜杜勒 - ·贾巴尔,沙奎尔奥尼尔和哈克姆奥拉武武翁的伟大中心的日子占据了涂料中的游戏,逐渐消失。

With Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez and possibly a few others being considered the only pure centers in the league these days, there is one question I have had in my mind since the NBA made its announcement about the alteration to the All-Star Game ballot: Could China’s up and coming centers thrive in a league that seems to be drifting away from using a traditional center?

Most media and scouts have focused their attention on the duo of Wang Zhelin (Fujian SBS Sturgeons) and Li Muhao (DongGuan Leopards) as two future prospects for the NBA in the future.

Wang, the 18-year-old who is starting his rookie season in the CBA, has already impressed many with his exploits at the Nike Hoop Summit and the FIBA Asia U-18 Championship this year with his athleticism and shooting touch. However, he is still a raw talent that needs to be molded into the center that he can be.

Sturgeons head coach Tab Baldwin and coaches at the national level should provide the necessary guidance to push Wang to the level he can reach. In addition, with the improved competition in the CBA, Wang should be getting challenged by some quality big men in the post, which could only help to improve his strength.

If the future Chinese national team center plays well in his maiden CBA season and continues to improve, in four or five years time his name could be heard at the top of the list of NBA draft picks.

Like Wang, Li Muhao continues to be a work in progress as he develops his game with the Leopards and head coach Brian Goorjian. Having played with the Chinese youth national teams and participating in the 2009 Nike Global Challenge, many scouts see a lot of potential in the big man.

One of Li’s advantages is that he is being nurtured along slowly by Goorjian so that he can improve the weak parts of his game while enhancing his strengths. A lot is expected of him this CBA season. He may not be a dominant player as he is still very young, but he should make an impact for the Leopards as they try to continue their progression into becoming a contender for the CBA crown.

While both players possess considerable upsides and have the strong possibility of being top back-to-basket centers in the years to come for the Chinese national team and the NBA in the future, the one area both need to work in is there overall strength.

这必须对国家队伍级别的教练成为王和李进步的主要关注点,因为反对派将有大型男子,可以在岗位上将它们分开,以便储存桶,只需将它们淘汰出篮板。

It may not be much of a concern at youth level as other players are developing as well, but at the senior level it is entirely another story.

Yao Ming can certainly attest to how strength training helped him when he had to battle in the paint with the likes of Shaq and other big men. By adding more bulk to his body he was able to absorb much of the punishment he was going through in the paint.

While Wang and Li do not have to spend every hour in the weight room trying to build themselves up for a Mr. Universe bodybuilding competition, adding a bit more mass to could help them to become more dominant in their positions scrap with the best of them around the rim. However, it should not be too much mass that they put on as it may affect them getting up and down the court.

No doubt the two young centers have the potential to play in the NBA like many others and they could be the catalyst in the re-emergence of the back-to-basket center. The most important this is that they are given the time to develop and the necessary training and games to make them the finished product.

    Abdul-jabbar说的一些是真的,但篮子里的中心并没有真正消失。联盟周围有很多垃圾 - 蒂姆邓肯(是的,他播放中心,而不是电力),Dwight Howard,Marc汽油,布鲁克·洛佩兹,罗伊·亨伯特,克里斯卡曼,马林·戈特特,安德鲁·拜纳姆,安德鲁博克,Nikola Pekovic和Enes例如,康纳。并且有一些前景可以发展成夫妻低职位球员,如Demarcus Cousins,Omer Asik,Larry Sanders和Javale McGee(最后三个是非常原始的)。
    最大的问题是NBA教练爱上了拣选和卷游戏,它将中心带到篮子里。但NBA是周期性的,所以最终将是一个新的低岗位中心浪潮,谁将来自于并振兴这种位置。
    人们忘记在20世纪70年代,他们在博卫生间看到了新的内部中心的死亡,因为鲍勃麦克斯,戴夫考伦,埃尔文海耶斯,鲍勃拉尼尔,鲍勃拉尼尔,鲍勃拉尼尔,鲍勃拉尼尔,鲍勃拉尼尔,鲍勃拉伊斯,鲍勃拉伊耶斯,鲍勃拉伊斯,鲍勃拉伊斯,鲍勃拉伊耶斯,鲍勃拉伊耶斯,鲍勃Lanier,鲍勃Lanier,Alvan亚当斯和丹伊斯(来自ABA)。
    但是,你后来看到了名望低帖子家伙喜欢比尔沃尔顿,摩西马龙和artisGilmore的抵达。也许王志宁和李穆豪将成为从死者那里提出的姿势的推动力,并为经典的低岗位争抢争夺其他山寨教练。
