[SAEN]异于常人的文班亚马庆祝年度最佳新秀奖

By Jeff McDonald, Spurs Writer | San Antonio Express-News, 2024-05-11 15:45:34

周六,一群学童挤进了圣安东尼奥大学校园内的史考比天文馆,希望能一睹最大明星的风采。

当这个天体没有立即出现时,孩子们开始为他们前来观看的超新星高呼:“文班!文班!”

维克托·文班亚马很快就从一扇为小个子准备的门中弯下他 7 英尺 3 英寸的身躯,及时地将聚集的观星者送去了月球。

文班亚马向他们问好:“嗨,伙计们。”

这位 20 岁的马刺中锋以他的“外星人”绰号和标志而闻名,他选择天文馆作为背景,以正式接受他本周早些时候赢得的 2023-24 NBA 年度最佳新秀奖杯。

文班亚马说:“我认为在这里与球迷和孩子们一起,每个人都高兴地来领这个奖,对我来说是一种美好的感觉。”“这很好地代表了我们在全年感受到的爱。”

文班亚马在周一成为 NBA 历史上第六位全票当选年度最佳新秀的球员,在媒体成员对联盟的投票中获得了全部 99 张第一名选票。

他成为第三位获得该奖项的马刺球员,加入了蒂姆·邓肯(1998 年)和大卫·罗宾逊(1990 年)。

文班亚马强调,他很荣幸能与这些满天星光的球员为伍。

文班亚马说:“这总是让我更加奋进,必须继续过去球员取得的伟大成就。”“特别是由于他们仍在身边,为我们提供建议和能量。”

在过去的时代,邓肯和罗宾逊都没有以如此异于常人的方式获得他们的年度最佳新秀奖。

来自 Calderon Boys & Girls Club、当地的大兄弟和大姐妹分会、J.T. 布拉克恩里奇小学和休斯顿堡的军人子女挤进了天文馆礼堂,参加颁奖典礼。

马刺总经理布莱恩·赖特说:“我想不出比一个鞋子上印有外星人的男人更合适的地方了。”

现场还有少数马刺队友,包括凯尔登·约翰逊、特雷·琼斯、朱利安·香槟尼、桑德罗·马穆凯拉什维利、查尔斯·巴西和扎克·科林斯,他的右肩经过手术修复,用吊带吊着。

也许是房间里个头最大的孩子杰里米·索汉发起了“文班”的欢呼声。

马刺首席执行官 R.C. 巴福德也在场,他开玩笑地说要利用这次远征来尝试找到文班亚马的家乡星球。

管理合伙人彼得·J·霍尔特是最晚入座的几个名人之一。在轻松的时刻,观众席上的孩子们——显然期望有一个更高、100% 更像法国人的人会走进门来——在文班亚马之前霍尔特进入房间时发出了失望的呻吟声。

该节目以一段精彩视频开始,该视频投射在天文馆的圆顶屏幕上,几代圣安东尼奥学童在这里学习其他恒星,例如天狼星和参宿四。

在一些可以追溯到文班亚马在法国打球时期的片段中,他比观众席上的许多孩子都要年轻。

文班亚马说道:“这真的让我起鸡皮疙瘩。”

赖特向文班亚马颁发了威尔特·张伯伦奖杯,他指出,他希望这并不是去年选秀状元职业生涯结束前获得的最后一个小饰品。

赖特回忆起几年前巴福德从海外考察旅行回来并宣布他看到了未来。

赖特转过身对文班亚马说:“他说,‘我认为我刚刚看到了我侦察过的最特别的球员。’你每天都在证明我们是对的。”

文班亚马随后播放了他自己制作的视频,感谢他认为对自己获得年度最佳新秀奖有帮助的每个人——从队友和教练,到办公室职员,到运动训练员,再到视频协调员,再到体育馆工作人员,是的,甚至还有 The Coyote。

文班亚马还感谢了圣安东尼奥社区的球迷,他们让他在他不到一年前回国以来就感到宾至如归,其中包括“鸣喇叭的人、壁画画家、自拍者、标牌制作人、服装穿戴者、艺术创造者、还有早餐玉米卷带来者。”

这就是文班亚马周六来到天文馆的部分原因,他希望与尽可能多的人分享这一时刻。

他说:“认识到彼此的伟大之处和价值始终很重要。”“我想保持这种势头,让每个人都知道他们已经成为这个家庭的一部分,也是这个故事的一部分。”

由于天文馆是天文馆,文班亚马是文班亚马,他以天文学讲座为聚集的学生们总结了这个节日,讲解暗物质理论。

不,真的。

文班亚马自认是科幻迷,他早已对这个概念着迷。

文班亚马后来向当地记者团中不懂科学的人解释说:“暗物质是一个我们看不见的质量。”“但我们知道它存在,因为它在每个星系中对引力拉力和引力轨道的速度都产生了影响。”

换句话说,暗物质是不可见的东西,但必须信仰它。

NBA 新科年度最佳新秀已被证明恰恰相反。即使是那些看到他的功绩的人也不常相信。

正如文班亚马周六告诉一群当地学童的那样,联盟还没有看到这一切。

他说:“未来将会很有趣。”

原文如下:

Out-of-this-world Wembanyama celebrates Rookie of the Year award

A group of schoolchildren packed into the Scobee Planetarium on the campus of San Antonio College on Saturday, hoping to catch a glimpse of the biggest star of them all.

When that celestial body did not immediately show itself, the kids began to chant for the supernova they had come to see: “Wemby! Wemby!”

Victor Wembanyama soon ducked his 7-foot-3 frame through a door meant for a much smaller man, promptly sending the assembled stargazers to the moon.

“Hi guys,” Wembanyama greeted them.

Known by his “alien” moniker and logo, the 20-year-old Spurs center chose the planetarium as his backdrop to formally accept the 2023-24 NBA Rookie of the Year trophy he won earlier in the week.

“I think receiving this trophy here with fans, with kids and everyone happy to be here, it’s a good feeling for me,” Wembanyama said. “It’s a good representation of the love we felt throughout the whole year.”

Wembanyama on Monday became the sixth player in NBA history to win Rookie of the Year in unanimous fashion, garnering all 99 first-place votes in a balloting of media members covering the league.

He became the third Spurs player to win the award, joining Tim Duncan (1998) and David Robinson (1990).

It is star-studded company Wembanyama stressed he is proud to keep.

“It's always something that pushes me even more, to have to carry on the great accomplishments of the past players,” Wembanyama said. “Especially since they're still around and giving us advice and energy.”

In a bygone era, neither Duncan nor Robinson received their Rookie of the Year awards in such an out-of-this-world way.

Children from the Calderon Boys & Girls Club, a local Big Brothers and Big Sisters chapter, J.T. Brackenridge Elementary and military kids from Fort Sam Houston crammed into the planetarium auditorium for the presentation.

“I can’t think of a more perfect place for a man who has an alien on his shoe,” Spurs general manager Brian Wright said.

Also on hand were a handful of Spurs teammates, including Keldon Johnson, Tre Jones, Julian Champagnie, Sandro Mamukelashvili, Charles Bassey and, with his surgically repaired right shoulder in a sling, Zach Collins.

It was Jeremy Sochan — perhaps the biggest kid in the room — who got the “Wemby” chants going.

Spurs CEO R.C. Buford was there, and he joked about using the excursion to try and locate Wembanyama’s home planet.

Managing partner Peter J. Holt was one of the final luminaries seated. In a moment of levity, kids in the audience — clearly expecting someone taller and 100% more French to walk through the door — let out a disappointed groan as Holt entered the room ahead of Wembanyama.

The program began with a highlight video projected on the planetarium’s domed screen, where generations of field-tripping San Antonio schoolchildren have learned about other stars, such as Sirius and Betelgeuse.

In some of the clips dating to Wembanyama’s days in France, he was younger than many of the kids in the audience.

“It really got me goosebumps,” Wembanyama said.

Wright presented Wembanyama with the Wilt Chamberlain trophy, noting he hopes it is not the last bauble last year’s No. 1 draft pick collects before his career is finished.

Wright reflected on the day years ago when Buford returned from a scouting trip overseas and proclaimed he had seen the future.

“He said, ‘I think I just saw the most special player I’ve ever scouted,’ " Wright said, turning to Wembanyama. “You’re proving us right every single day.”

Wembanyama followed with a video he had produced of his own, thanking everyone he believed had a hand in his Rookie of the Year win — from teammates and coaches, to the front office staff, to the athletic trainers, to the video coordinators, to the arena workers and, yes, even The Coyote.

Wembanyama also thanked fans in the San Antonio community who have made him feel at home since his arrival a little less than a year ago, among them “the horn honkers, the mural painters, the selfie takers, the sign makers, the costume wearers, the art creators, the breakfast taco bringers.”

This was all part of the reason Wembanyama had come to the planetarium Saturday, to share the moment with as many people as he could.

“It's always important to recognize each other's greatness and value,” he said. “I want to keep the momentum going and let everybody know that they're part of the family and they're part of the story.”

The planetarium being the planetarium, and Wembanyama being Wembanyama, he concluded the festivities by giving the assembled students an astronomical lecture on the theory of dark matter.

No, really.

A self-admitted science-fiction nerd, Wembanyama has long been fascinated by the concept.

“Dark matter is a mass we can't see,” Wembanyama explained later to the non-scientists among the local press corps. “But we know it's there because it's got influence on gravitational pulls and the speed of gravitational orbits in every galaxy.”     

In other words, dark matter is something that cannot be seen but must be believed.

The NBA’s newly minted Rookie of the Year has proven to be something of the opposite. Even those who see his exploits don’t often believe them.

As Wembanyama told a group of local schoolchildren Saturday, the league has seen nothing yet.

“The future is gonna be fun,” he said.
