Making the Most of Manu

Making the Most of Manu

没有人会质疑Manu Ginobili是当今联盟里最为特殊的一个球员之一,这位马刺的先发得分后卫,集NBA总冠军和奥运会金牌得主于一身。

他为比赛带来的不同风格,激情和活力。在NBA的第三个年头里,他的表现更上一层楼,平均每场20.5分6个篮板5次助攻。

这些数据比起去年进步很大,比起前年更是不可同日而语。当然,今年也将是他第一次全年先发。

有一件事想弄清楚,那就是Ginobili有多出色?

目前来说,他是马刺的二号得分手,助攻次数位列全队最高,也是队中篮板数第三。

或许衡量一个球员最好的方式是看他们的稳定性,看看他们每晚在球场上的表现,看看当比赛没有按照他们的方式进行时他们如何调整自己。

比如即使在Tim Duncan表现最糟糕的晚上,他也几乎可以为球队取下两双,而且他仍然在防守一端兢兢业业。

关于Ginobili的是对于马刺来讲,他并没有不得不像Duncan做的那样把整支球队扛在肩上。

在Duncan的NBA生涯里,他持续打出稳定的数据,平均每场22.8分12.3个篮板2.53次封盖,命中率稳定在.50。本赛季开打以来,他的数据为23.2分14.8个篮板2.83次封盖,命中率.48。

Duncan的数据在大多数方面稍微领先他的平均数据。即使在他最差的晚上,就象对阵西雅图超音速,他仍然得到17分10板和5次封盖,2次助攻和1次抢断。那晚在西雅图,Ginobili贡献21分4板和2助攻。

这场比赛很好地反映了马刺这支球队。

当Duncan表现出色,球队就前进。毫无疑问,他是马刺的基石,当他不稳定时,整支球队看起来也不稳定。

需要再次说明,重任是在他的肩膀上,而不是Manu的。然而,当Manu就象他以前做到的那样出色时,就可以解放Duncan,成为球队的二当家,把球队捏合在一起。没有Manu的贡献,马刺早在比赛结束之前就输掉了。

所以无论Ginobili做的什么他都是帮助球队成为一个整体,因为他知道他该如何打球。

Ginobili最大的一个优点是他能认识到除了得分还有很多其他的方式可以打得更好。当和亚特兰大老鹰交锋时,他只得到区区9分。考虑到他自己没有获得空位和容易的投篮机会,Manu在其他方面做得更多。他不仅有标准一般两次抢断和一些篮板,整场比赛送出9次助攻。

一个好的球员会认识到他获得的是何种机会,并试图把球队变得更好。这就是他们和其他普通球员不同的真正出色之处。

能够为仅仅得到9分开心,并且把注意力集中到其他强处,这显示出一个球员已经在比赛中成熟以及他们的重心放在球队而非他们自己身上。

Ginobili已经树立自己的形象,无论作为何种角色都愿意帮助马刺变得更好。毕竟,这是一个阿根廷的球星,去年他也愿意打替补。

所有最好的球员都有这种特质。为了找出一位球员更好地分享这一观点,分享数据,你可以看到没有球员比Duncan更合适。他宁愿传球也不愿勉强投篮。然而他也明白他担负这支球队,打好比赛提升队友是他的责任。

Tim Duncan是一位超级巨星,而且毫无疑问是联盟里最出色的球员之一,即使不是他位置上最好的球员。

没有人要求Manu成为联盟里最好的后卫,尽管他正在不断得分,显示出他能够把比赛提高到一个令人印象深刻的层次。但是他不必不得不做这些。Duncan扛起马刺,Ginobili要做的每件事只是为他分担更多压力。

无论他的数据下降或者整个赛季不能持续,但是很显然Ginobili正在冒进把他的比赛水平提升到一个不同的水平。

如果某个晚上他投篮的手感不好,那他会送出助攻、抢断、抓下篮板。这就是为什么他对球队如此重要,也是为什么他能成为球队冠军征程中重要的一个部件。

是什么使得不能简单用数据统计来衡量Manu的优秀呢?他的态度,他的意愿,只要是对球队有益,无论做什么都可以。

马刺是如此幸运迎回Manu…比任何时候都要幸运。
(这是11月18日的一篇文章,一直都没有翻出来,这次就当作献给Manu的48分的礼物吧。)

Without a doubt one of the most spectacular players in the league today is Manu Ginobili, the Spurs’ starting shooting guard, an NBA champion and Olympic gold medalist.He brings excitement and energy as well as a variety of skills to the game. Entering his third year in the league his performance has been raised yet again, with 20.5 points, six rebounds and five assists per game.
This marks a great improvement over what he was accomplishing last year last year, and much more than the year before. Of course, this will also be his first full year as a starter.
That being said, one has to wonder, just how good is Ginobili?
Well, as of now, he’s the Spurs’ second leading scorer, their leading assist man and third best at grabbing rebounds.
Perhaps one of the best ways to measure a player is by looking at their consistency, what they bring to the floor each night, and how they handle themselves when things aren’t necessarily going their way.
For instance, even on Tim Duncan’s worst nights he’s likely to get the team a double double, and he’ll still play hard on the defensive end.
The thing about Ginobili is that with the Spurs, he doesn’t have to shoulder the responsibility of carrying the team, Duncan does.
Over his years in the NBA Duncan has consistently, night in and night out, produced reliable numbers. For his career he’s gone for 22.8 points, 2.53 blocks, 12.30 rebounds and a steady 50% from the field per game. This year he’s averaging 23.2 points, 2.83 blocks, 14.80 rebounds and gone for 48% from the field.
So Duncan’s slightly ahead of his average in most respects. Even on his worst night thus far, against Seattle, he still produced 17 points and 10 rebounds, along with five blocks, two assists and a steal. That same night in Seattle, Ginobili contributed 21 points, four rebounds and two assists.
That game really exemplifies this team.
Where Duncan leads, the team follows. He is undisputedly the rock upon which the Spurs are built, and when he is unsteady, the team seems unsteady as well.
Again, the burden is on his shoulders, not Manu’s. However, when Manu is as productive as he has been, it frees up Duncan to perform, giving teams a second player to concern themselves with. Without Manu’s contributions, the Spurs would have been out of the game long before the final buzzer.
So whatever Ginobili does helps the team as a whole, because he’s smart about how he plays.
One of Ginobili’s greatest assets is his ability to recognize there are more ways to be productive than simply to score. When the team played Atlanta and he came up with only nine points. Recognizing he wasn’t getting open looks and easy baskets, Manu more than compensated. Not only did he snag his standard two steals and pull a few rebounds, he had nine assists for the game.
A good player recognizes what sort of opportunities he’s getting and will try to make the team better. That’s what really distinguishes them from the rest of the pack.
Being comfortable with only nine points and instead focusing your strengths elsewhere, that marks someone as being mature with their game and shows their emphasis on the team over themselves.
Ginobili has established himself as being willing to perform in whatever role makes the Spurs better, after all, this is a player who was the star of Argentina, and he was willing to come off the bench last year.
It’s what marks all the best players apart.
To find a player who easily shares the credit, and the stats, you would have to look no further than Duncan himself.
He will more than willingly pass the ball rather than take a forced, bad shot. Yet he also understands that he defines the team and it’s his responsibility to perform and elevate the game of those around him.
Tim Duncan is a superstar, and without argument one of the best players in the league, if not the best player at his position.
Nobody is asking Manu to become the best guard in the league, though he is making his mark and showing he can elevate his game to very impressive levels. Yet he doesn’t have to be. Duncan is supposed to make the team, everything Ginobili contributes simply takes more pressure off of him.
Whether his stats level off or not as the season continues, it’s obvious Ginobili is staking his game to a different level.
If he’s not going to have a good shooting night, he’ll make the assist, get the steal or pull down rebounds. It’s what makes him so valuable to the team and why he’s a key component to a championship run.
What makes Manu so good cannot be measured in the stat sheet alone. It’s in his attitude, in his willingness to do whatever it takes to benefit the teams.
The Spurs are lucky to have him back… Better than ever.

顶!!SUPERMANU
SUPER21FUTURE,TOO

TD怎么不是这位置上最好的球员呢?
他是NO.1

楼上同学24小时蹲守,论坛动向尽收眼底,第一时间反应,其志可嘉!

每个人都有自己心目中最好的球员 :smiley:

译的好!

Manu能把二当家的做好,spurs就能获得大部分的胜利。输给Rockets时有部分原因也是Manu的离场。

大家不要向热线王同学学习…

GOOD

翻译得很好~
我喜欢这句“一个好的球员会认识到他获得的是何种机会,并试图把球队变得更好。这就是他们和其他普通球员不同的真正出色之处。”

他就是

顶一下

不错,值得鼓励。第一句的spectacular翻译成“特别”似乎不当。全句似乎可译为“毫无疑问,Manu Ginobili是当今NBA最为亮丽的风景线之一”。

MANU,如果继续当第六人我也会喜欢他,像麦克海尔——我最尊敬的球员,不过他现在是狼队的高层哦!!!

ChinaSpurs招牌翻译。。赞。。

GOOD!!!

是什么使得不能简单用数据统计来衡量Manu的优秀呢?他的态度,他的意愿,只要是对球队有益,无论做什么都可以。

这就是MANU的价值!!也是马刺所有队员最富有的东西~只要球队获胜!!

说得好,MANU的作用和贡献是不能用数据来衡量的。
以前能心甘情愿,没有怨言地当第六人是很伟大的,球队的利益就是一切,这是马刺球员的宗旨。

已经有太多太多的例子,可以证明马刺的一份子是’‘无私’‘的,是’‘团结合作’'的!!
这也是他们吸引我看他们比赛与支持他们的原动力!!

看马努的比赛.除了欣赏以外.就是感动…一次次的摔倒在地上…一次次顽强的抢拼…一次次努力的突破…一次次见到一个白色的影子飞出…(心头都忍不住的紧张…) spurs munu健康万岁! 偶也是一个超级马努迷!!!

还有位巾帼翻译呢…
