This summer’s off-season,
Through training with the team during the offseason, Zhu Rongzhen felt the training differences between the Shandong team and the Liaoning team, and said that he was also trying to adapt.
Zhu Rongzhen said that the training of the Liaoning team and the Shandong team is very different. One team's training is mainly "crazy running" while the other team is "crazy training". As a 21-year-old newcomer to the team, Zhu Rongzhen said that he is still trying to adapt, and hopes that the new season can share the internal pressure for Han Dejun.
In daily training, Zhu Rongzhen and Han Dejun, both at the center position, are indispensable for confrontation training. Han Dejun, as the captain of the new team, took great care of him, but he was not on the court. In Han Dejun's words: "Isn't that cheating him". On the court, Daehan will not take care of anyone, so in every training session, Zhu Rongzhen has to withstand the test brought by Daehan's strong back.
Last season, the 33-year-old Han Dejun played 44 regular-season games for the Liaoning team. In an average of 32 minutes of playing time, he could deliver 17.6 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.7 blocks.
On the other hand, Zhu Rongzhen played 31 games on behalf of the former Shandong Men's Basketball team, averaging 13 minutes of playing time, scoring 5.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.7 blocks per game.
