十年状元重选,是金子总会发光的

这张图片近日流传甚广。在选秀前的新闻发布会上,准状元锡安被记者围得水泄不通,而反观格鲁吉亚中锋比塔泽这边却是门可罗雀。这一鲜明对比直击人心,更是击起了众多前辈的共鸣。

2003 年全明星周末新秀挑战赛前,媒体的目光都在詹姆斯和安东尼身上,打趣的问他们今晚打算得多少分,而韦德几乎无人问津,当终于被采访到时,记者居然还叫不出他的名字,韦德只好尴尬的笑了笑,"My name is Dwyane Wade, D.W.Y.A.N.E."

历史彷佛在重演,谁人不曾有过这段经历?希望冷落不会冷却你的热血,现实能让你跌落深渊,也能让你站在峰巅。事实上,09-18 年过去十年至今表现最亮眼的,很多甚至都不是前三顺位。

While some Drafts haven ’ t exactly been loaded with talent, there ’ s always a player that stands out from the pack, and today, we ’ re going to let you know about the best player from each of the last 10 year ’ s Draft.

虽然并不是被选秀的球员都是天才,但总有一些球员会脱颖而出。今天,我们会带你了解过去 10 年选秀的每一个最好的球员。

斯蒂芬 · 库里 ( 2009 年第七顺位 )

Stephen Curry wasn ’ t even considered as a highly-ranked prospect during his high school days. But now,Steph has become a two-time league MVP, 3-time NBA Champion with 5 straight trips to the Finals. He ’ s a member of the exclusive 50-40-90 club, and it ’ s considered to be the greatest three-point shooter in the history of the game.

在高中时期,史蒂芬 · 库里甚至不被认为是一个排名靠前的新秀。然而现在,库里两次成为联盟的 MVP,连续五次打入总决赛,并三次获得总冠军。他成为了 50-40-90 俱乐部的一员,并被称为篮球史上最伟大的三分射手。

prospect /'pr ɑ sp kt/ n. 前途;预期;景色

exclusive / k sklu s v/ adj. 独有的;排外的;专一的

保罗 · 乔治 ( 2010 年第 10 顺位 )

Paul George is yet another success story after not being considered the best player in his class. Back in 2010, he was taken 10th overall out of Fresno State, and while he ’ s a part of the same class as John Wall, Gordon Hayward, and DeMarcus Cousins, he truly stepped forward.

保罗乔治是另外一个在同届球员中不被看好却最终取得成功的故事。回到 2010 年,他在弗雷斯诺州立大学排名第 10,虽然他当时和约翰 · 沃尔、戈登 · 海沃德和德马科斯 · 考辛斯是一届球员,但他现在确实取得了飞跃。

卡哇伊 · 伦纳德 ( 2011 年第 15 顺位 )

Kawhi Leonard went from being a terrible shooter to one of the deadliest scorers in the league, as well as a perennial candidate to win both the Defensive Player of the Year and the MVP. He ’ s already an NBA Champion and led the Raptors to their first NBA Finals in franchise history.

卡哇伊 · 伦纳德从一个糟糕的射手变成了联盟中最致命的得分手之一,而且连续几年同时获得年度最佳防守球员和 MVP 的提名。他已经获得了 NBA 总冠军,并且带领猛龙队在球队历史上第一次杀入联盟总决赛。

perennial /p reni l/ adj. 多年生的;常年的;四季不断的;常在的

franchise history 球队历史

安东尼 · 戴维斯 ( 2012 年第 1 顺位 )

Earlier in his career, there were a lot of concerns about Anthony Davis ’ health and durability. Several seasons later, it ’ s safe to say that he was worthy of the 1st overall pick. He is one of the best two-way players in the league, a shot-blocking machine, and a guy whose post moves and ball-handling ability make him almost unstoppable.

在他职业生涯的早期,有很多人担心安东尼戴维斯的健康和持久性。几个赛季后,可以肯定地说,他值得这个状元。他是联盟中最好的双向球员之一,一个盖帽机器,他的跑位和控球能力让他几乎不可阻挡。

durability /dju r 'bil ti/ n. 耐久性;坚固

扬尼斯 · 阿德托昆博 ( 2013 年第 15 顺位 )

The Milwaukee Bucks were the league ’ s laughing stock back in 2013 when they drafted Giannis Antetokounmpo with the 15th overall pick.Now, Giannis has improved on a yearly basis in pretty much every single aspect of his game and is the main frontrunner to take the MVP home after leading the Bucks to their best season in a very long time.

2013 年,密尔沃基雄鹿队以第 15 顺位选中了字母哥,成为全联盟的笑柄。现在,字母哥几乎每年在每一个方面都有着长足的进步,并且带领雄鹿队打出了他们最好的赛季,在很长一段时间内,他都是 MVP 的主要领跑者。

laughing stock 笑柄

frontrunner n. 领跑者

乔尔 · 恩比德 ( 2014 年第 3 顺位 )

Throughout most of his NCAA tenure, Joel Embiid was considered to be the best prospect in the world, but his injury woes caused his Draft stock to slip to the 3rd spot. Now, the Cavaliers and Bucks may be regretting to have taken Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker ahead of him.

在他大部分的 NCAA 生涯中,恩比德被认为是世界上最好的新秀,但是他的伤病使他的选秀权降到了第 3 位。现在,骑士和雄鹿队可能会后悔在他之前选择了安德鲁威金斯和贾巴里帕克。

woe /w / n. 困难,灾难;痛苦

卡尔 · 安东尼 · 唐斯 ( 2015 年第 1 顺位 )

Karl-Anthony Towns eventually outplayed both D ’ Angelo Russell and during his spell with the University of Kentucky en route to becoming the consensus 1st overall pick, and he hasn ’ t let the Timberwolves down ever since.

在肯塔基大学时,卡尔 · 安东尼 · 唐斯击败拉塞尔和奥卡福成为了第一顺位。从这之后,他从未让森林狼失望。

outplay / a t ple / vt. 打败;胜过

let down 使失望;放下;辜负

本 · 西蒙斯 ( 2016 年第 1 顺位 )

Coming out of LSU as the 1st overall pick, Ben Simmons has never beenaside of controversy. First, it was his health that raised a lot of eyebrows, then it was whether he should ’ ve been considered a rookie or not, and lastly, it was his lack of a jump shot. Either way, he ’ s one of the best passers and playmakers in the world, and his length allows him to guard all 5 spots in the court.

作为第一顺位,争议一直都围绕着本西蒙斯。首先,是他的健康让很多人担心,然后是他是否应该被认为是一个新秀,最后,就是他没有跳投。不管怎样,他是世界上最好的传球手和组织球员之一,他的身高让他可以防守场上的 5 个位置。

controversy / k ntr v si/ n. 争论;论战

eyebrow / a bra / n. 眉毛

多诺万 · 米切尔 ( 2017 年第 13 顺位 )

Donovan Mitchell was a huge steal in the 2017 NBA Draft. Coming out of Louisville as a sophomore, nobody thought he was bound to make such a huge impact for the Utah Jazz right out of the gate.

多诺万 · 米切尔是 2017 年的 NBA 选秀中的意外之财。作为来自路易斯维尔的大二球员,没人想到他一出校门就会给爵士队带来如此巨大的冲击。

be bound to 必然;一定要

卢卡 · 东契奇 ( 2018 年第 3 顺位 )

And finally, Luka Doncic should be considered this prior class ’ best player, even though Luka Doncic and Jaren Jackson Jr were also quite prolific.Doncic can do a little bit of everything. He wasn ’ t afraid of the moment and could put defenders on skates, create for others, and score in a huge variety of ways. It ’ s still pretty early, but he looks like the Dirk Nowitzki successor the Mavericks were looking for.

最后,东契奇应该被认为是一流的最佳球员,尽管东契奇和小贾伦实力都很强。东契奇什么事都能做一点点。他并不害怕关键时刻,他可以让防守者颤抖,为他人创造机会,并以各种各样的方式得分。虽然现在还为时过早,但他看起来就像小牛正在寻找的德克 · 诺维茨基的接班人。

prolific /pr l f k/ adj. 多产的;丰富的
