[Introduction] For Deron, the injury is not uncomfortable, what is uncomfortable is that his teammates are struggling on the field, but he is helpless.
Unable to play to share their pressure.
“I can only sit on the sidelines and watch them play preseason games. This is a very disappointing thing.” Deron said, “Really, it’s fun to watch them practice, but it’s not good when it comes to serious games.”
It’s good because I’m not on the field.”
“They’re working hard on the court, they’re working out great, and I want to join them and be a part of them,” Deron added. “Because I’m not on the court, sometimes I feel like an outsider, no.
Part of the team, when I train, I want to be part of the team.”
Even if he can’t play, Deron is unwilling to waste his time like this. He has studied coach Kidd’s tactical system very well, and the purpose is to integrate into the team as soon as possible when he returns.
“My iPad is full of the team’s tactics and defensive strategies, so I am familiar with the team’s situation,” Deron said. “Before, I often practiced alone, and at that time I would pretend to be my teammates
They are all there. I feel good during practice. Although I am not here, I am responsible for most of the team’s tactics. What I need now is to find a tacit understanding with the team.”
Deron also talked about his injury, “We are improving day by day, we really have to be careful now, Garnett and Pierce also know that I really want to play, but they think health is the most important thing, I will let myself
Get back to 110% health and play. I don’t want to go out and twist my ankle and then take another month off.”
Deron also revealed that his goal is to try his best to play in the team’s opening game. The Nets’ opponent in the opening game is the Cavaliers, on October 30th local time.
