北京时间4月14日,湖人在主场101-96战胜爵士。这是科比的生涯告别之战。这一天已经被命名为“曼巴日”,洛杉矶的地铁站也改名为“科比战”。

81分。37岁。20赛季。5个总冠军。一生湖人……

#ThankYouKobe#


加嫂加索尔写给科比的这封告别信,让多少球迷都泪目了……让我们来读一读这篇千字长文,感受一下好基友的依依不舍之情。

【为啥是加嫂?1. 英文发音的谐音“噶扫” 2.解说曾说他与科比有着夫妻般的默契。】


My first day with the Lakers, I met the team at The Ritz in Washington, D.C., and at 1:30 in the morning there was a knock on my door. I found out later that Kobe doesn’t sleep much. I sat on the bed, I think, and he sat on the table next to the TV. He welcomed me to the team, and then he told me it was “go” time. It was winning time. He felt I could take him to the top again, and he wanted to make sure I knew that. “This is our chance,” he said. It was powerful and meaningful. We were a perfect fit.  A lot of the triangle offense is based on reads and working off one another and understanding each other. I understood the game. I was meticulous about it. I think he appreciated that. I think he saw it as refreshing. Our relationship clicked from the beginning. We both knew we needed each other to succeed.


我加入湖人队的第一天,我是在华盛顿与球队会合,那是凌晨1点半,结果有人敲我的房门。我后来发现科比的睡眠时间并不多。我当时坐在床上,他坐在电视机旁的桌子上。他欢迎我加入球队,然后他告诉我是时候加油了。那是赢球时间。他感觉我可以带他重返巅峰,而且他希望确保我知道这点。“这是我们的机会。”他当时说道。这是非常有力量和有意义的话。 我们是一对完美的组合。 三角进攻里面的许多东西都是建立在读懂对方、互相配合和互相理解上。我理解比赛,我非常严谨,我认为他欣赏我这点。我认为他看到了焕然一新的面貌。我们的关系从一开始就很融洽。我们都知道我们需要对方来取得成功。


There are so many games in the NBA, it’s easy to start going through the motions. He kept everybody on edge. In practice he challenged people. He talked trash to people. It wasn’t for everybody. Some players can’t deal with that, but I didn’t mind. It was his way of motivating you and pushing you to give more. It’s easy to get comfortable. He made sure nobody was comfortable.  After we lost Game 6 to the Celtics in the 2008 Finals, we didn’t talk about it much. That was a time to digest what had happened, why we fell short and let that fire start burning in our bodies and our stomachs. We went into the next season with a different attitude—a stronger, more aggressive, more determined approach. I think that’s why we won the next two titles.


NBA的比赛很多,所以很容易会出现松懈。但是他让每个人都保持警醒。训练中,他会挑战别人。他会向别人喷垃圾话。这并不适用于所有人。有些球员无法应付,但是我不介意。这是他激励你的方式,并迫使你付出更多。让每个人感到舒服很容易,但是他确保没有人感到安逸。 当我们输掉2008年与凯尔特人的总决赛第6场之后,我们并没有谈论它很多。那是一个消化这个结果的时候,我们为什么输球,并让那股火焰在我们的体内燃烧。进入下赛季的时候,我们的态度变得不同——更加强大、更有侵略性以及更有决心。我认为这是我们随后完成两连冠的原因。


If you play with him, you’re looking every day at living proof of why the greats are the greats. It’s not by accident. It’s an obsession to reach that level and remain at that level. The dedication, the commitment, is such a unique thing. You don’t find it. He inspired me to be better, to see the game in a more detailed way.  We beat the Magic in the 2009 Finals, and everybody was happy, but it was different for him. It had a special meaning. Basketball was his life, and winning was his devotion. I’m not taking anything away from his family, which means the world to him, but basketball had so much depth to it.


如果你和他一起打球,你每天都能看到为什么伟大的球员能变得伟大。那不是巧合。这是对达到那种水准以及维持那种水准的痴迷。那种决心、承诺是非常特别的。你无法找到。他能激发你变得更好,并对比赛有更深入的了解。 2009年总决赛,我们击败了魔术,每个人都很开心。但是他不同。那具有特殊的意义。篮球是他的生命,赢球是他的热爱。我并没有忽视他的家庭,那对他意味着一切,但是篮球占据着非常深的位置。 


When the Chris Paul trade, which I was going to be a part of, was vetoed in December 2011, he was like a big brother, standing up for me. At one point he told the Lakers, “If you’re going to trade him, do what you have to do and trade him. If not, leave him alone and let him play.” 


当克里斯-保罗的那笔交易我将被卷入其中之时,在2011年12月被否决时,他就像是一个大哥哥,支持我。有一次,他告诉湖人队:“如果你们准备交易他(加索尔),做你们必须做的,交易他。如果你们不交易他,那就让他打球。” 

We didn’t hang out that much off the court, but toward the end we had several meals one-on-one, and we would reminisce. When I was deciding whether to leave the Lakers in 2014, he came to my house in Redondo Beach. He said he wanted me to stay in L.A. and battle with him and finish our careers together. Those were his words. I told him I was in a place where I needed a change in my heart. I needed a change of air. It was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done, telling him, “I’m deciding not to play with you anymore.”


我们在场下相处的时间并不多,但是我们单独吃过几次饭。2014年夏天,当我正在决定是否离开湖人时,他来到我家。他说他希望我留下,和他一起战斗并且一起结束职业生涯。那是他的原话。我告诉他,从我内心来说,我需要需求变化。我需要换一个空气。这是我经历过的最困难的事情之一,并对他说:“我决定不再和你一起打球了。” 

I signed with the Bulls because I wanted to put myself in position to win another title. I haven’t been able to do that. I miss him a lot. I miss his presence. I miss that attitude. Not many players have it. 


我后来与公牛队签约,因为我希望让自己处在再夺一个总冠军的位置。但是我一直没有做到。我非常想念他,我想念他的存在,我想念他的态度,并不是有很多球员具备这点。


愿你的人生中也有一起奋斗的挚友。
