In the current CBA league, most of the teams need a small foreign aid with a large package, but the Liaoning men's basketball team is different. Instead, their requirements for small foreign aids are not to occupy the ball too much.
Compared with Guo Ailun, Zhao Jiwei belongs to a completely different type. He tends to create more opportunities for his teammates and is more like a traditional point guard. Zhao Jiwei's physical condition is not top-notch, and his personal offensive ability is lacking, but he is a player who plays with his brain and knows how to use his strengths and avoid weaknesses. His passing ability and overall outlook are unmatched among domestic players and he is called a team. strongest brain". Having such a player is a very happy thing for the coach and teammates.
In the 2013-2014 season, because Guo Ailun broke his arm at the beginning of the regular season and faced the possibility of reimbursement for the season, the Liao Basketball Club urgently recalled Zhao Jiwei who was undergoing special training from abroad. Zhao Jiwei's CBA career began a little suddenly. In the first round of the playoffs that year against the Xinjiang team, people remembered that Han Dejun suffered a "snap hug" before the end, but few people noticed that it was Zhao Jiwei who broke through and scored the goal to the basket. Han Dejun created an opportunity for defensive dislocation. If the referee hadn't chosen to ignore the opponent's foul, Zhao Jiwei would have dedicated a very classic assist. It is hard to imagine that Zhao Jiwei, who was less than 19 years old at the time, would be so good at reading the game.
In the 2015 Men's Basketball Asian Cup, Zhao Jiwei helped the Chinese men's basketball team reach the top of Asia as the starting number one. This also made people full of expectations for his performance in the Liaoning basketball team in the new season. Regrettably, injuries came to the door untimely. Zhao Jiwei's 2015-2016 appearance record remained at "3", a number he is very familiar with. Until the next season, due to multiple major injuries, Zhao Jiwei finally ushered in an outbreak, averaging 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game, all setting a career record. In the 2017-2018 season, Zhao Jiwei, as the main force, followed the Liao basketball team to realize the championship and reached another peak in his career. But then, Zhao Jiwei was once again held back by injuries. Until last season, Zhao Jiwei's scoring average was finally in double figures, reaching 11.6 points, and his assists and steals per game were also increased to 4.5 and 1.9.
Unconsciously, the 25-year-old Zhao Jiwei is about to usher in his eighth CBA season. Over the years, Zhao Jiwei has created many brilliances with the Liaoning basketball team, and he personally made a lot of sacrifices for the team. But as he said in an interview, "Liaoning men's basketball team has always been like a big family. We are all from Liaoning and we are playing for our hometown. So we feel very proud. We are all children of Liaoning." New season , I hope this "child soldier" born and raised in Liaoning can stay away from injuries and bring more happiness to the fans
