  • to be able to put myself in a place where

    不管我在練習 還是在比賽

  • I switch my mind to something else I switch my mode into something else

    我會轉換我的思想 轉換我的態度

  • Right.


  • For me it's equivalent of Maximus Decimus Meridius in Gladiator

    撿起塵土 聞聞塵土

  • picking up the dirt Smelling the dirt


  • It's go time Right.

    這就是我的思想上的轉變 就像演員準備

  • So that was my mental switch It was like an actor getting ready

    拍電影 你必須把自己關在籠子裡

  • for a film you've got to put yourself in that cage

    在那個籠子裡 你就是那個角色

  • When you're in that cage you are that character Then when you leave there it's something completely

    當你離開那邊 一切都變不一樣

  • different But I'm in that cage bro don't f*cking touch

    可是當我在籠子裡 哥們你最好別碰我

  • me don't talk to me


  • Leave me alone


  • So what is your recruiting approach


  • So if you're sitting down with me


  • I'm somebody you really want


  • you really want me on the team


  • What's your approach to recruit me ?


  • You want first place come play with me


  • you want a second place go somewhere else


  • Trivial things weren't gonna pull my attention It had to be sayings

    那些瑣事是不會影響到我的 只有那些

  • weren't pull my attention It had to be things that were I had a purpose

    不會影響到我的 只有那些我有目的去做的事

  • I wanted to be one of the best basketball player ever play


  • and anything else that was outside of that lane


  • I don't have time for that At what age did that goal become crystal clear


  • ? I made that deal with myself at 13 years old


  • At 13 years old ? At 13 years old I made


  • Crystal clear about it ? Crystal clear

    13歲! ?就是13歲

  • And where did inspiration come from ? the love of the game


  • the love of the game the challenge


  • like I would watch Magic play I'd watch Michael play


  • and I will see them do these unbelievable things

    對比賽的熱愛 那種挑戰的感覺

  • and I say you know Can I get to that level?

    我會看魔術師約翰遜的比賽 邁克爾的比賽

  • I don't know but let's find out Let's find out


  • You know basketball for me was the most important thing


  • So everything I saw whether is TV shows

    我不清楚 那就搞清楚吧 試試看

  • whether it was books I read People I talked to

    你知道的籃球對我來說 就是最重要的

  • Everything was done to try to learn how to become a better basketball

    所以不管我看見什麼 不管是電視節目

  • player Everything

    還是我讀的書 還是和我聊天的人

  • and so when you have that point of view then literally the world becomes your library


  • to help you to become better at your craft


  • I had a kill list and so you know

    所以當你有了這樣的想法 你會發現這個世界就像你的圖書館

  • they used to do these rankings who New Street & Smith basketball rankings


  • and I was nowhere to be found because I was like 6/4 scrawny

    我有個“暗殺名單” 你知道

  • like 160 pounds soaking wet so I was like 57 on the list

    他們很喜歡搞一些排名 New Street & Smith的排名

  • and so I will look at 56 55 all the way up to number one

    當時我的名字都不知道在哪裡 因為我當時6尺4

  • who these players are with club teams they played for

    但只有160磅 瘦骨如柴 當時我的排名大概在57

  • So when we go AAU travel circuit

    所以我就會去看誰在56 55 一直到第一名

  • I got to hunt them down Right and so that became my mission in high

    我會記住這些人 他們在哪個團隊

  • school is to check off every other person


  • all those 56 other names hunt them down and knock them down

    我要一個一個解決掉他們 所以這成了我高中任務

  • That's was it Had a target on him right off the bat


  • That was it Very simple

    那56個名字 盯准他們 解決他們

  • that's unbelievable

    就是那麼簡單 你就是一直在想著這些

  • so we played at 13 I was size you up and see what your strengths and weekness are

    就那麼簡單 僅此

  • how do you approach the game are you silly about it


  • are you goofy about it are you good at it

    所以13歲的我會觀察你 分析你的強項和弱點

  • just because you're bigger and stronger than everybody else

    你是如何對待比賽的 你是不是狡猾的

  • Right.

    還是憨憨的 還是說你會贏

  • Or is there actually thought and skill that you put into it


  • and when I play I played to my weaknesses


  • I wouldn't play to my strengths I play to my weaknesses

    所以我打球時 我會用我的弱點去玩

  • because when you're playing summer basketball there's so many games

    而不是我的強項 我是用我的弱點的

  • so there is not a lot of skill work being done so when are you gonna get better ?

    因為當你要打籃球時 到時會有很多比賽

  • When you're playing in competition situations you're only playing to your strengths

    你很難有時間去練習你的技術 所以你要幾時才要變強?

  • Why ? Because you want to win

    你打比賽的時候 只用你的強項打

  • So what I would do I always work on the things during those games


  • that I was week at left-hand

    所以我會做的是 我每次比賽時都是

  • pull up jumpshot post game

    用我的弱點的 左手

  • Right So I have a strategy

    幹拔跳投 背身

  • So then fast forward to when I'm 17 and my game is completely well-rounded

    是吧 所以我是有計劃的

  • and that player at 13 that I saw at 13 is still doing the same sh*t at 17

    所以快轉到我17歲時 我已經非常全面了

  • Now you got a problem Right

    而那些我13歲遇到的球員 17歲還用著一樣的技術

  • You got a problem

    那他完蛋了 對吧

  • Shaq was whispering something in your ear What did Shaq say to you in that moment ?


  • I don't even know You don't remember ?

    沙克當時在你耳邊耳語了一些東西 沙克當時說了什麼

  • No I won't pay attention You know like

    我根本不知道 你忘記了?

  • like it was you know for me

    不是 我沒專心聽 你知道好像

  • it's maybe it's a little like a**hole for me

    就像 對我而言

  • whatever but whatever

    可能是 我可能有點混蛋

  • He was like he was trying to whisper encouraging things

    還是什麼 隨便

  • I was like I'm f*cking fine Okay

    但是毫不在意 因為你知道有個球員Barbosa

  • He was extremely talented for a quick first step

    我不知道你還記得嗎 當然記得

  • but they said he wouldn't do well when the spotlight was on him


  • How did you get mentally and emotionally so strong


  • where it doesn't bother you at all Well you know you got to look at the reality

    對我來說 你有些太自以為是了

  • Like ok you feel embarrassed you're not that important like


  • Get over yourself That's where you go

    好吧 你覺得難堪

    是吧 你擔心人家怎麼看

  • So I look at it with rationale and say ok

    所以季后賽來臨時 我的腿足夠強壯 球就會進籃了

  • Well the reason why I shot air balls because my legs aren't there

    所以我是理性看待它的 說好吧
