5 ‘draft losers’ are active in offense and defense
Boston Celtics and Eastern Conference final match <BR>Aiming for revenge for last year’s defeat… Game 1 on the 17th
The dark horse of the NBA playoffs this season is by far the Miami Heat. The Heat entered the playoffs as the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, the last place, after winning 1-1 in 2 games in the play-in tournament, which is like a ‘resurrection game’. However, after that, in the regular season, the 1st place Milwaukee Bucks (4-1) and 5th place New York Knicks (4-2) were captured in succession and reached the conference finals.
At the center is the ‘Undrafted Five’. They are Caleb Martin (28), Gabe Vincent (27), Max Strauss (27), Haywood Hardsmith (27) and Duncan Robinson (29). The NBA selects 60 players in the rookie draft each season. If you’re not drafted here, your chances of getting into the NBA are extremely low. Even if you are lucky enough to come in, it is common for only the bench to be heated. It’s not easy to get rooted in the league. As of last year, there were 438 undrafted players in 70 years of NBA history. Among them, there are only 5 lightning stars who made it to the All-Star Game.
Hit recognized the potential of these imperfect resources. He honed players with grit and turned them into key resources for the team. “They didn’t come to the NBA just to fill the numbers,” Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said. If you look closely, you can notice the extraordinary talent.”
These 5 idiots are not flashy, but they are doing their part like Altoran. Excluding Martin, four of them have spent two to five seasons with the Heat alone. Vincent is averaging 11.5 points and 4.8 assists in the playoffs, while Strus is averaging 10.9 points. Martin (10.8 points) comes off the bench and plays the role of an energizer, and Hardsmith (2.8 points) boasts a seasoned game management after 메이저놀이터 two years. Robinson (8) boasts the team’s most 3-pointers made (2.4) in the playoffs. They combined for 479 points in the playoffs this season. This is the second most points ever scored in a playoff game by an NBA undrafted player. The first place is also the 576 points the Heat scored last season. “We put a lot of time, effort, sweat and blood into it,” Gabe Vincent said. And I did not miss the opportunity that came.” Considering that hit ace Jimmy Butler (34) also has a past where he was abandoned by his parents when he was young and grew up moving from one friend’s house to another, the entire team is a summary of weed life.
On the 17th, the Heat will play the first game of the conference final against Boston Celtics, which is second in the East. The two teams competed in last season’s conference finals, and the Celtics won 4-3. Jimmy Butler said at the time, “We’ll be back here next year,” and “we’ll beat the Celtics we’ll meet again.” And we really met again.
