Michael Jordan. Aroldis Chapman


今年7月底球員交易日截止前**,艾普斯坦用四名球員換來一個洋基投手Aroldis Chapman/查普曼,這位投手投奔美國前在古巴即赫赫有名,2007年曾隨古巴國家隊到台北參加世界杯棒球賽,2010年加盟紅人隊,2016年轉到洋基,季中被小熊隊網羅。綽號「古巴飛彈」或「古巴火球男」,查普曼的球速平均在160公里上下。
事實證明這是決定小熊奪冠與否最具關鍵的一筆交易。對舊金山巨人的分區季後賽,他出場四次有三次救援成功。10月22日與道奇一戰,他投八九兩局並以再見雙殺解決道奇,暌違70年,小熊終於又打進世界大賽並帶給小熊球迷最完美的結局。那位108歲「老阿祖」Mabel Ball,當小熊隊封王時跟她兒子說:「我已達成我的心願可以走了。」一個禮拜後她真的走了。

To a new generation of sports fans, an image of the blubbering basketball player might be more well known than his athletic legacy.


For those who were sentient when Michael Jordan was winning championships, seeing him become a mocking emblem of incompetence has been jarring.

高貴的生命不卑微

他是黑人,1963年出生于紐約的布魯克林貧民區。
他有四個兄弟姐妹,父親微薄的工資根本無法維持家用,他從小就在貧窮與歧視中度過。
對於未來,他看不到什麼希望。
那年,他十三歲,父親遞給他一件舊衣服:“這件衣服能值多少錢?”
“大概一美元。”他回答。
“能賣到兩美元嗎?要是你賣掉了,也算幫了我和你媽媽。”
他點了點頭:“我可以試一試,但不一定能賣掉。”
他小心地把衣服洗淨,沒有熨斗,就用刷子把衣服刷平,鋪在一塊平板上陰乾。
第二天,他帶著這件衣服來到人流密集的地鐵站,經過六個多小時的叫賣,他終於賣出了這件衣服。
他緊緊地攥著兩美元,一路奔回了家。
以後,每天他都熱衷於從垃圾堆裡淘出舊衣服,打理好後去鬧市裡賣。
如此過了十多天,父親又遞給他一件舊衣服:“你想想,這件衣服怎樣才能賣到20美元?”
怎麼可能?它頂多值兩美元。
父親啟發他,“你為什麼不試一試?總會有辦法的。”
終於,他想到了一個辦法。
他請學畫畫的表哥在衣服上畫了一隻可愛的唐老鴨與一隻頑皮的米老鼠。
他選擇在一個貴族子弟學校的門口叫賣。
不一會兒,一個開車接少爺放學的管家為他的小少爺買下了這件衣服。
那個十來歲的孩子很高興,還給了他5美元的小費。
25美元,這無疑是一筆鉅款!相當於他父親一個月的工資。
回到家後,父親又遞給他一件舊衣服:“你能把它賣到200美元嗎?”父親的目光幽幽地閃著光。
這一回,他沒有猶疑,沉靜地接過了衣服。
兩個月後,當紅電影《霹靂嬌娃》的女主演拉佛西來紐約做宣傳。
記者招待會結束後,他推開身邊的保安,撲到拉佛西身邊,舉著舊衣服請她簽名。
拉佛西看到是一個純真的孩子索要簽名,便痛快地簽上了自己的名字。
他激動地一陣歡呼:“拉佛西小姐親筆簽名的運動衫,售價200美元!”
經過現場競價,一名商人以1200美元的高價收購了這件運動衫。
回到家裡,一家人都禁不住狂歡……
父親感動得淚水橫流:“沒想到你真的做到了!我的孩子,你真的很棒!”
這個晚上,父親與他抵足而眠。父親問:“孩子,從賣這三件衣服中,你明白了什麼?”
他感動地說,“只要開動腦筋,辦法總會有的。”

父親點點頭,又搖搖頭:
“你說得不錯,但這不是我的初衷, 我只是想告訴你,一件只值一美元的舊衣服,都有辦法高貴起來,何況我們這些活生生的人呢?
我們只不過黑一點兒、窮一點兒,可這又有什麼關係呢?”
刹那間,他心中升起了一輪燦爛的太陽。
“連一件舊衣服都有辦法高貴,我又有什麼理由妄自菲薄?”
從此,他努力學習,嚴格刻苦地訓煉,對未來充滿著希望!
二十年後,他的名字傳遍了世界的每一個角落。
他,就是邁克爾·喬丹。

Basketball Hall of Fame as player
Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963), also known by his initials, MJ,[1] is an American former professional basketball player, entrepreneur, and majority owner and chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats. His biography on the National Basketball Association (NBA) website states, "By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time."[2] Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was considered instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.[3]
After a three-season career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a member of the Tar Heels' national championship team in 1982, Jordan joined the NBA's Chicago Bulls in 1984. He quickly emerged as a league star, entertaining crowds with his prolific scoring. His leaping ability, illustrated by performing slam dunks from the free throw line in slam dunk contests, earned him the nicknames "Air Jordan" and "His Airness". He also gained a reputation for being one of the best defensive players in basketball.[4] In 1991, he won his first NBA championship with the Bulls, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a "three-peat". Although Jordan abruptly retired from basketball at the beginning of the 1993–94 NBA season to pursue a career in baseball, he rejoined the Bulls in 1995 and led them to three additional championships (1996, 1997, and 1998) as well as an NBA-record 72 regular-season wins in the 1995–96 NBA season. Jordan retired for a second time in 1999, but returned for two more NBA seasons from 2001 to 2003 as a member of the Washington Wizards.
Jordan's individual accolades and accomplishments include five MVP awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. He holds the NBA records for highest career regular season scoring average (30.12 points per game) and highest career playoff scoring average (33.45 points per game). In 1999, he was named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press's list of athletes of the century. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.
Jordan is also noted for his product endorsements. He fueled the success of Nike's Air Jordan sneakers, which were introduced in 1985 and remain popular today.[5] Jordan also starred in the 1996 feature film Space Jam as himself. He is the majority owner and head of basketball operations for the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, having won a bidding war to buy controlling interest in the team from founding owner Robert L. Johnson.
