“如果赛季今天就结束的话”是赛季中很多争论和话题的开头,但这句话从来没有过像现在这样有意义过,随着新冠病毒的爆发,这句话有可能变成现实。NBA总裁XX-XX决定中断本赛季,人们就开始怀疑下一步是否会是取消整个赛季

The NBA has crowned a champion every season since 1947, which is the second-longest uninterrupted streak among North America’s four major professional sports leagues. The NFL has named a winner of every season since 1933 while labordisputeshave shut down MLB and the NHL.

从1947年后,NBA每年都会产生一个总冠军,这也是北美四大体育职业联盟中第二长的记录,NFL自1933年之后的每个赛季都产生了一个冠军,而MLB和NHL曾因劳资纠纷而关闭过。

dispute英[d spju t] 美[d spju t] n.争论; 辩论; 争端; 纠纷;

With the United States combating a globalpandemicthat has halted other countries, expecting that the game will return in another month might delve into the realm ofexceedinglyoptimistic. Especially in light of the CDC’s statement on Sunday, recommending that there be no gatherings of 50 or more people until mid-May.

美国正在与一场已经让其他国家陷入停滞的全球流行病作斗争,期待比赛在下个月重新开始可能过于乐观了。尤其是考虑到美国疾病控制与预防中心周日发表声明,建议在5月中旬之前不要举行50人以上的聚会。

pandemic英[p n dem k] 美[p n dem k] n.(全国或全球性) 流行病; 大流行病;

exceedingly英[ k si d li] 美[ k si d li] adv.极其; 非常; 特别;

随着赛季中断时间的延长,本赛季不再继续比赛的可能性也在增加。如果那真的发生的话,下面这些重要的时刻就不会发生了:

1、扬尼斯-阿德托昆博的历史性的赛季增加了许多不确定因素

随着一波三连败,密尔沃基雄鹿打破了一些人认为的他们本赛季可能获得70胜的想法。而扬尼斯-阿德托昆博的左膝伤病加剧了这一下滑趋势,使得赛季70场胜利的可能性化为泡影

But that shouldn’t, in any way,diminishthe season that Antetokounmpo was having — the best encore to an MVP season since LeBron James followed up his first NBA championship by Harlem shaking with a crown and a cape.

但是无论如何,阿德托昆博在本赛季已经取得的成就都不应该被贬低——这是自勒布朗-詹姆斯在头戴王冠,身披披风,获得他的第一个NBA总冠军之后的,最好一次获得MVP赛季后第二个赛季强势归来的表现。

diminish英[d m n ] 美[d m n ] v.减少; (使) 减弱,缩减; 降低;

This isn’t to diminish what anyone has done, only to put Antetokounmpo’s season in better perspective. He is about to become just the third player in NBA history to average at least 34.5 points per-36 minutes, joining Chamberlain and James Harden.

这不是要贬低任何人已经取得的成就,只是从一个更好的角度来观察他这赛季的表现。他将成为继张伯伦和哈登之后,NBA历史上第三位平均每36分钟得到至少34.5分的球员。

But the Greek Freak is averaging more assists than Chamberlain and more rebounds than Harden in thoserespectiveseasons. He’s been handling his business so quickly and efficiently, leading the Bucks to several blowout wins in the process, that he hasn’t been forced to exert himself down the stretch of many close finishes.

但在他们各自取得如此成就的赛季中,希腊怪兽的场均助攻数比张伯伦多,场均篮板数比哈登多。他处理球的速度非常快,效率也非常高,并带领雄鹿在这个过程中取得了几场大胜,所以他并没有被迫在许多比分胶着的关键时刻竭尽全力。

respective英[r spekt v] 美[r spekt v] adj. 分别的; 各自的;

2、勒布朗-詹姆斯可能会在追赶卡里姆-阿布杜尔-贾巴尔历史总得分纪录的道路上错失19场关键的比赛。

What LeBron James was accomplishing in his 17th season was truly remarkable. The same could be said for his 16th season and his 15th season and any season that he has been on an NBA court. James continues to evolve, adjust and use his superior skill and intelligence tocompensatefor any slight decline in athleticism.

勒布朗詹姆斯在他生涯第17个赛季中取得的成就是非凡的。他的第16个,第15个,以及他任何一个NBA赛季都是如此。詹姆斯的一直在调整和丰富自己的武器库并用他出色的技术和高超的篮球智商来弥补自己运动能力的轻微下降。

compensate英[ k mpense t] 美[ kɑ mpense t] v.补偿; 弥补;

With Anthony Davis on his side, James decided to embrace his inner point guard and will end up leading the league in assists for the first time. Settling into a role as set-up man, however, hasn’t diminished James’s ability to get buckets.

有了安东尼-戴维斯这样的强力队友,詹姆斯决定遵循自己内心想打控球后卫的想法,并将在职业生涯中首次赛季结束时领跑联盟助攻榜,然而成为一名组织者并没有削弱詹姆斯的得分能力。

James was able to – amazingly – run another lap about Father Time, which will eventually catch him (we think). The uncertainly of when that moment when either injury or age slows him down only heightens the urgency of the chase.

令人惊讶的是,詹姆斯在我们认为“时间老人”会追上他的时候又交出一个令人惊艳的赛季。不管最终是伤病还是年龄会导致他放缓脚步,那个时刻何时到来的不确定性只会增加他追逐的历史的得分第一人位置紧迫感。

3、蔡恩-威廉森错过追赶贾-莫兰特的最后机会

贾-莫兰特是年度最佳新秀,因为莫兰特已经打出了让无论老将还是他的同样的年轻球员们都对他刮目相看的表现了。

Zion Williamson has been phenomenal as well,exceedingthe hype and providing even more hope for a franchise that has recovered well from the Anthony Davis departure. Williamson’s gesture to pay the salaries of arena workers affected by this season suspension offers encouragement that he might have character to match his prodigious talents.

蔡恩-威廉森的表现也是现象级的,超过了之前的媒体的大肆宣传,并且为鹈鹕队在安东尼-戴维斯离开之后的复兴带来了更多的希望。威廉森的为受赛季中断影响的体育馆工作人员支付薪水的行为也向人们展现出了与他惊人天赋相匹配的高尚人格。

exceeding英[ k si d ] 美[ k si d ] v.超过(数量); 超越(法律、命令等)的限制;

But, the fact remains, he wouldn’t have played enough games to justify hurdling him past his fellow South Carolinian and former AAUteammate for one summer, Morant.

但是,这并没有改变,他并没有打足够多的比赛来证明他有理由超越他的前队友,同样来自南卡罗来纳的莫兰特(他们在之前的一个夏季中当过AAU队友)的事实。

4、可能错过科怀-伦纳德和勒布朗詹姆斯的洛杉矶王座之争

勒布朗-詹姆斯和科比-布莱恩特从未在总决赛中相遇,这是他们俩重叠的职业生涯中的一大遗憾,詹姆斯在2009和2010年均未能带领骑士队与湖人总决赛的挫折不可避免地导致了他选择转投迈阿密追逐总冠军,但是在那之后,科比就开始落后于詹姆斯了,或者说,他就不再是一个总冠军争夺者了。

人们期待伦纳德能和詹姆斯来一场洛杉矶的王者之战。

James thought he was going to lure Leonard to the Lakers last July but Leonard made it known with his own power flex that his preference was to beat him than to join him.

去年7月,当詹姆斯以为伦纳德会受到他的吸引选择加盟湖人时,伦纳德用他强势的回应让人们知道,他更想要击败詹姆斯,而不是加入他。

James has been knocked down but he’s not willing to concede anything, so long as he’s still able to engage in the fight. Leonard has been quietly plotting – what else would you expect? – for a takeover for some time.

詹姆斯在一次对决中落了下风,但只要他还能参加比赛,他就不愿意退让一丝一毫。伦纳德一直在悄无声息地打着自己的算盘——你觉得他还能在想什么呢——当然是有朝一日成为洛杉矶的头号球星。

If that Leonard-James matchup is delayed for another year, at least there is a chance that Durant could be on the other side — fully healthy, with Kyrie Irving— and ready to settle any unfinished business in the 2021 NBA Finals.

如果伦纳德和詹姆斯的碰撞要推迟一年的话,至少杜兰特会在东部等着他们——身体完全恢复,并有凯里-欧文这样的强力帮手——并准备好在2021年NBA总决赛中实现他们未完成的目标。

Enjoy the Process
