Stephen Silas expects to reunite with a more powerful Jalen Green

By finishing the regular season on a series of five games in a row with more than 30 units and with an average of 29.3 points over the last seven games, Jalen Green whetted the appetite of Houston watchers and fans alike.

Everyone will logically hope to see this level of performance again in 2022/23 from the second choice of the 2021 Draft. For his part, Stephen Silas is above all attentive to the physical aspect of the back.

“The important thing for him this summer is his body”explains the coach to Rockets Wire. “He was diligent in the weight room. He hasn’t gained much weight, but he seems much more powerful. You see it when he does his exercises. It is more stable, more powerful. He can take a hit and end up all the same. »

A very explosive player, Jalen Green is a featherweight, with his 80 kilos announced on the scale during his first season. He will not need, as Stephen Silas points out, to gain a lot of mass because, after all, a Stephen Curry is only three kilos heavier.

Nevertheless, it must actually gain in power to better withstand shocks.

“He’s so fast, he’s already one of the best players in the league in terms of explosiveness,” continues Stephen Silas. “The result of his work in the weight room is that he will take a step forward. I’ve seen this before with other players. Their bodies change, they become stronger, more regular. Thanks to this summer work, during the season, he will be able to take the hits. »
