Murray looked back on his days in San Antonio.
Dizonte Murray (193cm, G) debuted in the NBA in the 2016-2017 season. He didn’t play much in his debut days, but he established himself as a key player in the team from the second year. His greatest strength was his defense. He proudly took his name to the All-Defensive Team.
In his third year, he did not play a single game due to a cruciate ligament injury. However, he came back healthy and averaged 21.1 points, 9.2 assists, 8.3 rebounds and 2 steals in the 2021-2022 season, and was also selected as an All-Star for the first time in his life. He’s definitely established himself as the ace of the San Antonio Spurs.
However, San Antonio and Murray’s companionship did not last long. After the season, Murray was traded to the Atlanta Hawks.
Murray, who joined Atlanta, averaged 20.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.3 rebounds. The expected synergy with Trae Young (185cm, G) was less than expected, and Atlanta ranked 8th in the East. The opponent in the first round of the playoffs is Boston.
Boston has Derek White (193cm, G), who matched with Murray. The confrontation between the two players is also attracting a lot of attention. In this situation, Murray recalled his days in San Antonio with White.
“People made White compete with me,” Murray told the Spurs Report. I liked director Popovich, but he wasn’t a ‘yes man’. So I think director Popovich liked White more than me. Director Popovich often compared me and White,” he said, expressing regret at the time. 메이저사이트
Meanwhile, in the face-to-face match between the two players, White is still being picked as the winner. White averaged 25 points, 6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.5 blocked shots in the series, leading the team to its second consecutive victory. Conversely, Murray averaged 26.5 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in the series, but could not prevent the team from losing.
