In the warm-up game of the new season, the wizard will move to Japan to face the defending champions warriors on September 30 and October 2, with the Japanese star landlord Rei Hachimura becoming the focus.
Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. said in an interview today about the team’s forward Rui Hachimura, “To be honest, we had very high expectations for Hachimura, and he played very well in the game.
Last season, Hachimura played in 42 regular season games for the Wizards, averaging 11.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.5 steals in 22.5 minutes per game, shooting 49.7% from the field and 44.7% from the three point range.
Unseld also revealed that Rei Hachimura has been strengthening his outside shooting training recently, and his three-point firepower has been improved, which allows him to better create space for the team. It is worth noting that Hachimura’s three-point shooting percentages in the Wizards’ three seasons were 28.7%, 32.8%, and 44.7%, respectively.
In the warm-up game in the new 2022-23 season, the NBA arranged for the Wizards and the Warriors to play two games in Japan. As a landlord, Rei Hachimura naturally became the center of attention. However, his agent noted that in order to to prepare for the war, he would have to go abroad during this trip to the Wizards. Before starting the trip, Rui Hachimura tried his best to refuse visits from the media. This was the first time he returned to Japan to compete after the Tokyo Olympics So, he gave great importance to show his best performance.
During the warm-up game, Rei Hachimura, as a landlord player, is about to take on the role of the NBA’s promotional ambassador in Japan and participate in some related activities. However, it is impossible for him to fully enjoy the spotlight, because the wizard’s opponent is The Warriors, who just won the championship, and the popular FMVP Stephen Curry (Stephen Curry) in the lineup will absorb a lot of heat from the Wizards and Hachimura.
