萨克拉门托国王对阵菲尼克斯太阳

马刺队今天为他们的新成员举行了新闻发布会。

随着马刺队在自由球员市场上的招募工作接近尾声,他们今天迎来了新成员,也是NBA的著名老将——克里斯·保罗(Chris Paul)和哈里森·巴恩斯(Harrison Barnes)。这一切始于昨天,克里斯·保罗向马刺球迷们发送了一条信息,表达了他来到这里的兴奋之情,以及获得他从未想过会得到的机会:为格雷格·波波维奇效力。

今天,保罗和巴恩斯都在圣安东尼奥举行了他们的亮相新闻发布会。(发布会没有进行网络直播——即使有这个计划,也无法实现,因为据报道WiFi出现故障——所以我们只能依靠那些在现场并能够收到足够信号发推文的记者们的说法。KENS5的杰夫·加西亚 似乎是最幸运的。)

保罗率先发言,在重申了他来到这里为波波维奇效力的兴奋之情后,他说他来这里也是为了学习和分享他自己的知识。只是不要把他和球员教练混为一谈;他来这里也是为了上场比赛。

保罗说他来这里是打球的,不是来当教练的,是来向球队/球员学习的,并与球队分享他的知识。#nba #porvida #SanAntonio pic.twitter.com/wfd8I6n2f3

他还说,除了有机会为波波维奇效力之外,与维克托·文班亚马(Victor Wembanyama)并肩作战的机会也是他决定来圣安东尼奥的重要因素。

也许他最让我喜欢的一句话是,他告诉球迷们不要因为他有时在球场上的行为而对他有偏见,要知道这只是因为他想赢球。(如果有人是NBA的新球迷,他一直以来都以情绪失控和向裁判抱怨而闻名,这常常让人反感,也不是马刺球迷习惯从他们的球员身上看到的东西。)你必须尊重一个了解自己的缺点(至少从球迷的角度来看)并能接受它的人。波波维奇喜欢一些狠角色,而他在保罗身上又看到了一些这样的特质。

克里斯·保罗告诉我,他希望球迷们不要因为他如果在球场上表现出某种行为而对他有意见。他希望球迷们知道,他只是想赢球。#nba #porvida #SanAntonio #gospursgo pic.twitter.com/fVuXBYplsQ

虽然这种态度,加上马刺与保罗效力过的球队之间普遍存在的竞争关系,有时会让他让马刺球迷感到不快,但别忘了,他一直与马刺三巨头都是很好的朋友,在与马刺的合同敲定后,他也收到了他们的问候。

是签约,不是交易。我的错。 https://t.co/gZYc18dVCt

最后,他再次表达了他想要上场比赛的愿望,并谈到了他的家人(在他效力期间,他的家人将继续住在洛杉矶的家中)。

接下来轮到巴恩斯了,这位 consummate pro( consummate pro 指的是在某个领域达到最高水平的人,通常指的是运动员)当然说了所有该说的话。他也表达了他为马刺、波波维奇和文班亚马效力的兴奋之情,他一直很钦佩这支球队。(值得注意的是,巴恩斯有一个交易保证金,他放弃了这笔钱,才得以成行,所以他确实对来这里有一定的发言权。)

巴恩斯说,维克托·文班亚马是他决定来圣安东尼奥的原因之一。但吸引他的是整个球队,以及前球员们对球队的赞誉。#nba #porvida #sanantonio #gospursgo pic.twitter.com/sx3f1ow75v

— JeffGSpursKENS5 (@JeffGSpursZone) 2024年7月9日

他还表示,他知道打造一支冠军球队需要时间,而他来这里就是为了帮助球队实现这一目标。

哈里森·巴恩斯说,有机会为波波维奇效力,与这支球队并肩作战,这很棒。他知道打造一支冠军球队需要时间。#nba #porvida #sanantonio #gospursgo pic.twitter.com/tZzQ2cSDDx

— JeffGSpursKENS5 (@JeffGSpursZone) 2024年7月9日

哈里森·巴恩斯告诉我,他从外部观察到,马刺的重建需要时间,年轻的马刺球员需要作为一个团队分享经验,才能走出重建期。#nba #porvida #sanantonio #gospursgo pic.twitter.com/94vthcqi4h

他和保罗已经在一起训练了,巴恩斯开玩笑说,下赛季有保罗给文班亚马喂球,马刺队的空接扣篮数应该能领跑全联盟。虽然现在有几名关键球员因为国家队或夏季联赛的比赛而缺席,但他们应该会尽快回到训练馆,去了解他们的新队友。

有趣的是,保罗和巴恩斯在球场上的性格截然相反,但他们都应该能很好地融入球队。仅凭他们两人并不能让马刺更上一层楼——这还需要球队内部的成长——但期待他们能对更衣室里的每个人产生积极的影响,并帮助球队在球场上解决很多问题。

欢迎来到圣安东尼奥,克里斯和哈里森!

Chris Paul and Harrison Barnes excited join the Spurs, help build a winner

Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

The Spurs welcomed their newest additions with introductory press conferences today.

As the Spurs round things up in free agency, they welcomed new-comers and notable NBA veterans Chris Paul and Harrison Barnes to the team today. It all began yesterday, when Chris Paul sent his own message to Spurs fans, expressing his excitement to be here and to get an opportunity he never expected would come his way: playing for Gregg Popovich.

Today, both Paul and Barnes had their introductory press conferences in San Antonio. (Which was not live streamed — even if that was the plan, it wouldn’t have happened because the WiFi was reportedly down — so we’re going by what reporters who where there and could get enough signal to tweet had to say. Jeff Garcia of KENS5 seemed to have had the best luck.)

Paul went first, and after reiterating his excitement to be here and play for Pop, he said he is also here to learn and share his own knowledge. Just don’t confuse him with a player-coach; he’s here to play as well.

He also said that along with the opportunity to play for Pop, the chance to play alongside Victor Wembanyama played a big role in his decision to come to San Antonio.

Perhaps my favorite line from him was telling fans not to hold the way he acts on the court at times against him, and just know it comes from wanting to win. (In case anyone is new to the NBA, he has long had a reputation for losing his cool and whining the refs, which has often been a turnoff and not what Spurs fans are used to seeing from their players.) You have to respect a guy who knows his shortcomings (at least from fans’ perspective) and can embrace it. Pop likes some nasty, and he’s getting some of that back in Paul.

Chris Paul tells me that he wants the fans to not hold it against his if he acts a certain way on the court. That he wants fans to know he just wants to win. #nba #porvida #SanAntonio #gospursgo pic.twitter.com/fVuXBYplsQ

While that attitude plus the general rivalry the Spurs have had with Paul’s teams has sometimes made him off-putting to Spurs fans, don’t forget he has always been great friends with the Big Three, all of whom he heard from after his contract with the Spurs was finalized.

Deal, not trade. My bad. https://t.co/gZYc18dVCt

Finally, he re-iterated his desire to play and talked about his family (who will remain at their home in Los Angeles while he’s here).

Next was Barnes’ turn, and of course the consummate pro said all the right things. He too expressed his excitement to play for the Spurs, Pop and Wemby, having always admired the organization from afar. (Note that Barnes had a trade kicker, which he waived to allow the move to happen, so he did have some say in coming here.)

He also noted that he understands building a winner takes time, and he’s here to help with that.

He and Paul have already been working out together, and Barnes joked that the Spurs better lead the league in lobs next season with Paul feeding Wemby. While several key players are away right now either with national team or Summer League obligations, expect them back in the gym ASAP to get to know their new teammates.

It is interesting how polar opposite Paul and Barnes are as far as on-court personality goes, but both should be equally good fits with the team. They alone won’t lift the Spurs to new heights — that will require internal growth as well — but expect them to have positive influences on everyone in the locker room and to help smoothen out a lot of issues on the court.

Welcome to San Antonio, Chris and Harrison!
