Can't Compare Kobe and MJ
The eras in which they played are completely different

Kobe 和 MJ 不能相互比較

因為他們所處的時代是完全不同的

Pippen-Kobe-and-Jordan  

Kobe Bryant's 81-point performance the other night against Toronto was certainly incredible, but it is unfair to try and compare what Kobe did to what Michael Jordan did in his playing career or what he could have done for that matter.

科比得81分絕對是非常了不起的表現,但是因為這樣便認為科比已經可以和麥可喬丹比肩,對喬丹並不公平:不管我們看的是生涯表現,還是單場最高得分。

In the era when Michael played, it was a physical game. Defense was promoted. Guys took pride in it. Today defense is no longer a part of the game. Guys are driving to the basket. There are rules where you can't step in front of them. To me, it is taking away from the game seeing a guy like Tony Parker taking advantage of the rules. He is shooting 55 percent from the field. That says something about the game itself. In the history of the NBA, I'm sure a point guard has never led the league in field goal percentage. It's a different game now. It's really not about being tough and physical because the NBA isn't a physical game anymore. When you talk about how the Knicks and Bulls used to battle in the early '90s, the Oakleys, and Pat Ewings, the Masons, and how they would have the ability to use their hands to put you in a trap position. There is no way you can even triple team a guy now and stop him. Any contact is a foul. I can't compare the two players because I see it as two different games. If I'm guarding Kobe Bryant in today's game, I couldn't be the defender I was known as.

麥可當球員那個時代,聯盟的肢體碰撞強度遠勝現在,當時聯盟鼓勵防守,許多球員也以強悍的防守自豪;現在聯盟鼓勵進攻,新規則不允許防守者以身體預先阻斷持球者的行進路線,所以球員可以如入無人之境的切入籃下;對我來說,看到馬刺的帕克利用這個規則恣意切入得分,總覺得這樣的球賽有些缺憾。NBA歷史上好像還沒有控球後衛命中率領先聯盟的,但是看看帕克今年55%的命中率,你應該知道現在的比賽已經和過去不一樣了。強悍的肢體防守不再受聯盟青睞。回想90年代初期公牛和尼克的殊死戰,老鬼(Oakley)、猩猩(Ewing)、梅森(Mason)這些傢伙的防守,他們可以用手把你往預先設下的陷阱裡推;現在呢?三夾都不一定守的住一個人,因為只要一有肢體接觸就是犯規。我沒辦法比較科比和喬丹兩個人,因為比賽完全不同,我只知道如果我在今天的規則下守科比,我不會是過去那個以防守令人喪膽的Pippen。

If you want to say that Kobe could get 100, I would say that Michael could get 100. If Kobe could get 81, I think Michael could get 100 in today's game. I think the psychological style that Michael was able to master in the game, puts him far beyond Kobe. But Kobe's youthfulness has put him in a position where it looks like he is overtaking Michael. Kobe has 10 years in this league. That is a lot of experience to have and still be a very youthful player.

如果你認為科比可以挑戰100分,我會告訴你麥可也可以;科比剛剛得了81分,我想如果麥可來打今天的比賽,他會得100分!麥可場上的心理素質遠勝科比,雖然看起來好像科比已經超越了(同齡時的)麥可,但別忘了科比已經入行十年,論經驗來說他已經不算年輕了。

With that said, I am sure Phil doesn't want to coach that type of game. It's not his style. I don't expect it to happen again. Phil will probably do everything in his power to make sure it doesn't. I don't think Phil is going to try to promote what Kobe has done more than anything because he has damaged his whole team. You just scored 81 points. Do you need your teammates? Are they going to step up when you need them or are you going to continue to pound them like you've been doing and be selfish just to get some individual accolades?

除了前面說的,我想菲爾也不想看到這樣的比賽,這不是菲爾喜歡的風格,他一定會想辦法改變這種情形。我想菲爾不會允許科比繼續這樣下去,因為科比正在傷害整支球隊,你一個人就可以拿81分,你要你的隊友幹嘛?反過來說,哪一天當你需要他們,他們能站出來嗎?還是說你打算繼續壓抑他們的能力只為了追求自我的榮耀?

From a leadership perspective I think Kobe has taken a step back. Look at what he has to live up to now. You just scored 81 points. If you scored 81 points, your team should pretty much go out and win at least 75 percent of their games the rest of the year. Is that fair to say? You just compared yourself to Wilt. Can you go out with your team and do that or are you just going to go out and score tons of points every night? Are you going to get back to the point where you are shooting a lot of shots and you're teammates are not shooting and you're losing?

從領導能力的觀點來說,我想科比是不進反退了。看看科比過去受到的批評,如果你有單場得81分的能力,你的球隊接下來應該要有75%的勝率,這個要求不過份吧?你自比為張伯倫,可是你可以和你的隊友一起達成這個目標嗎?還是你在乎的只是自己每天晚上的得分?難道你又要回到過去那種自己射到爽,隊友涼到爽,然後球隊輸球的日子?

Right now, Kobe has willed the Lakers to a 22-19 record. It will be interesting to see what happens the rest of the way.

目前在科比的加持下,湖人的戰績是22-19,接下來的戰績會如何,大家都在拭目以待。

老皮講得還挺中肯的,現在多了Hand Check這個規定真的差蠻多的...

kobe-pippen-175003_480_art_R0

Hand Check:『防守者不得用手觸碰進攻方球員,除非他位於禁區,而且進攻球員背對籃框。防守者可以在不影響進攻球員移動(意指速度、敏捷性、平衡及節奏)的前提下短暫的觸碰進攻方。防守者可以在進攻方背向籃框且離籃框很近時,以前臂觸碰其背部以保持有利的防守位置。除此之外,任何觸碰皆會被視為有犯規嫌疑。』

講白話一點,就是以前防守者通常都會去用你的前臂去架在對方的腰部附近,好施力增加對抗性,不讓進攻者輕易的就吃掉你。現在可不行這樣囉!如果要這樣,應該第一節還沒打完就會犯滿畢業下場了 XD
