The Rockets announced their abandonment of Zhou Qi at the end of last year, and Zhou Qi was completely abandoned by the NBA. After returning to China this year, he was mainly preparing for the World Cup.
It means that there are no more Chinese players in the NBA. Zhou Qi has the strength, is good at rebounding, and is also good at three-pointers, but why did the Rockets lay off him?
Not long ago, Harden talked about Zhou Qi on a program. He said that this teammate has improved a lot, and he has been improving every time. His body has also become stronger, and his three-pointers are very good.
His strengths in rebounding and blocking shots have also been further strengthened. I am proud of his progress. He is also a very hardworking player himself.
Harden’s evaluation of Zhou Qi is relatively positive, but he can also know Zhou Qi’s problems from the side. Harden talked about Zhou Qi’s three-pointers, rebounds and blocks are very good, but he didn’t mention his confrontation ability, but said Zhou Qi’s strength in an understatement.
Qi’s body has become stronger. It can be seen that Harden is very aware of the reason why Zhou Qi was cut, that is, his lack of confrontation ability.
Zhou Qi entered the NBA in 2016. During the draft, Zhou Qi was not taken seriously, which affected his mentality. His performance after that was not very stable, but the Rockets still wanted to train him. After that, Zhou Qi’s performance was actually a pass
Yes, not only can shoot three-pointers from the outside, but also can fast break, and the defense in the interior is also good, and he also has the ability to protect rebounds. These skills that Zhou Qi is good at have also been shown in NBA games, but still not
Meet the expectations of the Rockets, because his confrontation ability is too weak.
Although the NBA has abandoned Zhou Qi, it has not completely closed the door. Zhou Qi performed well in the World Cup and can still impress NBA teams. I hope he can embark on the NBA journey again.
