Two superstars return to the game

  In August 2020, Yi Jianlian suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in the CBA Finals and has been away from the arena ever since.

Last season, he missed all games.

In this season's pre-season warm-up match, Yi Jianlian completed his return.

  Judging from his performance in the pre-season warm-up match, the injury has had a certain impact on his body and psychology, and his current state cannot be compared with that before the injury.

However, as the game progresses, Yi Jianlian's competitive state may further pick up.

As the current signature player of the men's basketball team, Yi Jianlian's return to the game itself is already a highlight.

  In addition to Yi Jianlian, another former CBA MVP winner Ding Yanyuhang will also return to the game this season.

In the past few years, due to factors such as injuries and contract differences, Ding Yanyuhang has not been able to play.

  In the pre-season warm-up match, Ding Yan Yuhang did not debut.

Some media reported that he will make his debut in the Shandong team's first regular season. What is the status of the former "four-character foreign aid" is worth looking forward to.

League new army is about to debut

  At the beginning of last season, the Bayi Men's Basketball Team officially withdrew from the CBA League, making that season only 19 teams participated in the CBA League.

Since then, there has been constant debate about whether Bayi’s CBA participation rights were inherited by the original main sponsor, Fubon Group.

  According to media reports, in July this year, Ningbo Fubon Men's Basketball Club Co., Ltd. was established.

Fubon Club retains the qualification to participate in the CBA League, and as one of the 20 legal shareholders of the CBA company, serves as the supervisor of the CBA company.

Since then, the CBA League Shareholders' Meeting passed the relevant proposals for participation, and officially clarified that Fubon Club will participate in the new season CBA League.

  Bayi and Fubon’s one out and one in, made the CBA still maintain the scale of 20 teams, but in fact a brand new team appeared.

  Before the start of the new season, Fubon recruited troops and completed the formation of the team.

However, judging from the team's big roster, the overall strength is not strong, and there are no relatively big-name stars. The team's performance in the new season is likely to be in the middle and lower reaches of the league.

It should be a more realistic consideration for this new army to build a good youth training system and find its own game style.

The 2020-2021 season CBA finals came to an end on the evening of May 1.

In the end, the Guangdong Men's Basketball Team defeated the Liaoning Men's Basketball Team 110:103 after overtime, and won the CBA championship, which is also the eleventh championship in its team history.

Liao Yue Zheng Feng plot update

  Liao Yue hegemony has been the main theme of the CBA in the past few seasons, and the new season will still be a major attraction of the league.

This time, who will have the last laugh?

  For the Liaoning men's basketball team, they still have the opportunity to overturn the dynasty of the Guangdong men's basketball team in the new season.

The Liaoning team used to be a weak striker in the past. After Zhang Zhenlin joined, it was reinforced. This talented young man is bound to grow further in the new season.

The head coach of the Liaoning Men's Basketball Team, Yang Ming, will also usher in his "second grade". The improvement of his tactical level will also be good news for the Liaoning Men's Basketball Team.

  The Guangdong Men's Basketball Team has also been strengthened. Yi Jianlian's return can greatly compensate for the disadvantages of the inside and increase the height of the lineup.

Guangdong's back line performed relatively strong in the CBA Finals and the National Games last season. In the new season, players such as Zhao Rui and Hu Mingxuan will get more possessions, and their attacking ability may be further improved.

  Overall, the two teams are still in a "evenly matched" state, and every time they meet in the new season, there will be fierce sparks.

Changes in the second group situation

  Outside of Liao and Guangdong, the "Second Group" in the middle of the league ranking may be reshuffled in the new season.

  The traditional strong team Xinjiang Men’s Basketball and Zhou Qi’s contract differences ended up losing both. Zhou Qi switched to the Australian League, while Xinjiang Men’s Basketball lost its inside pillar.

The Xinjiang team's back line has always been a relatively weak link. Now that the inside line has lost Zhou Qi, the overall lineup strength has declined, and the performance of the new season may be more struggling.

  The Beijing Men’s Basketball Team may also have a difficult period at the opening stage. According to media reports, Fang Shuo, who had undergone surgery for his leg injury, did not go to Zhuji with the team. With a clear return time, the Beijing team's back line will be tested.

  The Shanghai Men's Basketball Team may emerge in the new season and achieve good results.

During the offseason, the team introduced MVP-level player Wang Zhelin and champion coach Li Chunjiang, becoming the biggest winner in the transfer market this year.

Although it is impossible to conclude that the Shanghai team has the strength to compete for the championship, judging from the strength on paper, they are very hopeful that they will be able to hit the semi-finals or even go further.

When will the home and away system resume

  According to the official announcement of the CBA League, the entire regular season of the new season will be held in three stages. The first stage will be held in Zhuji, Zhejiang Province from October 16th to November 14th, with a total of 13 rounds arranged.

The specific arrangements for the regular season follow-up games and playoffs will be "notified separately."

  In fact, in the offseason, the CBA League once proposed the possibility of restoring the home and away game system.

On June 18, the CBA League shareholders meeting agreed after discussion and voting that the new season will work hard to promote the restoration of home and away games.

  The announcement at the time stated that the CBA League next season, under the premise of working hard to restore the home and away system, will determine the final match plan from the preliminary plan based on the actual situation, including the next season first to be played by local players and resume use when the time is right. Foreign aid program.

  However, in recent months, there have been epidemics in many parts of the country, and finally the first stage of the new CBA season still adopted the game system.

However, in theory, if the domestic epidemic prevention situation is good in the future, the CBA may restore the home and away game system.

  In addition to the fans' desire to watch the game live, the restoration of home and away games can bring a certain amount of ticket revenue to various clubs. This is good news for clubs with tight funds after the epidemic.

  Of course, these prerequisites are to cooperate with the epidemic prevention policy and ensure the safety of personnel.

I hope that the new CBA season will provide us with more exciting events on the basis of safety!
