Why 3s, not dunks, now reign at All-Star

怎么现在是三分大赛而不是灌篮大赛统治全明星赛

The dunk contest used to be All-Star Weekend’s signature event, even
if the league never quite got a handle on how to orchestrate it. The
dunk, after all, is basketball’sclassic, galvanizing moment of
athletic expression.

暴扣大赛历来都是全明星周末的标志性项目,尽管联盟从来不曾仔细地去编排。暴扣毕竟是篮球选手所展现的经典、刺激的每日。

Basketball is changing, though, and we see it reflected in the
anticipation for All-Star Weekend. There’s buzz over a 3-point shoot
out involving Stephen Curry,Klay Thompson,Kyle Korver, James Harden,
Kyrie Irving,J.J. Redick,Wesley MatthewsandMarco Belinelli.The dunk
contest? Dinner plans aren’t being canceled to watchMason
Plumleejumpingin public.

尽管如此篮球运动在时时刻刻地转移,大家看来这一个生成首先会在全明星周末上反映出来。有着斯蒂芬·库里、克莱·汤普森(Thompson)、凯尔·科沃尔、詹姆士·登哥、凯里·Owen、J.J.雷迪克(Dick)、韦斯利(韦斯利(Wesley))·马修斯和马科·贝里Nelly(译注:2014年三分球大赛亚军)插足的三分球大赛让众人谈论纷纷。暴扣大赛吗?看梅森(Mason)·普Lamb利跳的话,晚餐计划都不会被注销。

You can chalk up the gulf in star power between All-Star Saturday’s
marquee events as a matter of the dunk contest’s safety concerns,
prospect of humiliation and general mismanagement over the years.
That’s part of theexplanation, to be sure. There’s another factor
here, though: raw athleticism– i.e., the ability to jump –is less of
what defines a perimeter player these days.

你可以归结于在全明星周末星期一的类别参赛球星能力的伟人差异,由于参加暴扣大赛的安全性考虑、前景不利以及那多少个年来管理的松散。这确实是一有的原因。另一个要素是这个年来纯粹的移位天赋像是弹跳能力,在概念一个外线球员能力上越来越不根本。

The game is far different than when Michael Jordan averaged 37.1
points a game in a dominant 1987-88 MVP season while shooting .182
from behind the arc.

竞赛远不同于迈克尔(Michael)乔丹(乔丹)主导的场均37.1分同时三分命中率18.2%,得到MVP的1987-1988赛季。

It’s different these days because the rules are different.When the NBA
had illegal defense, space in the paint was legislated into the
game.Defenders weren’t allowed zone coverages according to where a
player might drive.This all changedafter 2002, when illegal defense
was nixed and coaches such asTom Thibodeauflooded the strong side to
prevent scorersfrom driving.

现行出于规则的不同而有所不同。当NBA有了防守犯规,油漆区就被投入到竞赛中。防守球员是不可以允许覆盖球员或者冲击的区域的。在2002年这一个否暴发了转变,当防守犯规被叫停,教练像是Tom·锡伯杜筑起一道防守来避免得分球员的冲击。

Now teams have to carve out their own by spreading defenses with as
muchshooting as possible. Someone like Korver might be a bench player
in thenot-too-distant past. These days, he’s an integral part of a
great team and afringe All-Star candidate. In that aforementioned
Jordan season, the leagueaverage on 3s attempted by a team was 401.
Last season, that average was 1,766.The long ball is no longer a goofy
novelty; it’s the lifeblood of a teamoffense.

近期球队必须经过尽可能像上篮一样多地强调防御来增进协调。在并不经久的千古,像科沃尔这样的球员或者会是一个替补球员。现在,他是一只伟大球队不可分割的一有些,也是一名可能成为全明星替补的球员。在往日提到乔丹(乔丹)所处的赛季,联盟每队平均的三分出手为401.上个赛季,达到了1766次。中距离抛投不再是如何奇怪的事物而是一只球队进攻的心脏。

I recently asked Curry if the buzz over the contest shows how the game
haschanged. “Yeah, I would say so,” he replied. “Because, obviously,
alot of teams are successful from outside, shooting the 3 ball, being
reallysuccessful at it, turning that into wins.”

本身近年问过库里倘若这一个令人热议的较量突显了较量是怎么着改变的。“是的,我也会这么说,”他回复道,“很领悟,很多球队在外线的表现很成功,他们很擅长投三分,并将此转化成了制服得到成功。”

That’s about the size of it. For as much as retired players warn of
“living anddying by the 3,” the 3-pointer wins games. More than that,
it wins titles.

这有赖于它的根本程度。因为不少退伍球员警告过“生也三分,死也三分”,但实质上三分投手会协理球队砍下胜利,甚至帮助球队轰下总冠军。

“You don’t want to vacate the paint entirely,” Curry continued, “but
to consistently shoot from outside, use it as a threat, it’s really
tough to guard, and I think the Spurs won championships off of that
concept and it’s proven to be successful.”

“你一点一滴不会想将内线腾出来,”库里继续协商,“但不止地从外线抛投,用它看做威迫,这真的很难防守,我觉得马刺上赛季砍下总冠军已经认证了三分球会带来成功。”

Dunks are still loved and can still change a game in a big way. High
flyers such as Blake Griffin,Russell Westbrook and LeBron James still
have a lot of currency in this league.It’s just that the game is less
defined by the dunk and more defined by a softer kind of triumph.

暴扣仍然被热爱,依然是改变比赛的一个生死攸关措施。像是布雷克(布雷克(Blake))·格里芬、罗素(Russell)·威斯布鲁克(威斯布鲁克(Westbrook))和勒布朗(布朗(Brown))·詹姆士(詹姆士)这样的扣将依然在联盟中据为己有首要的身份。只是竞赛更少地用暴扣来定义而是更多的用一种温柔的狂胜来定义。

It’s personified by Curry, someone who looks about as physically
imposing as your average golf pro (for the record, Curry is an
excellent golfer), lofting 3s over a defense’s futile efforts at
intimidation.His skill set has more to do with winning than it would
have in the past. Fansare drawn to what’s ultimately successful.

看起来像一名类同的职业高尔夫球手一样健康的人体,无视防守投出三分,这多亏库里的化身。他的技艺组合比起从前更能得到竞技。看球的观众们也被最后的克制所掀起。

As Curry says, this year’s contest should be “one of the funner parts
of the night.”

就像库里说的,二〇一九年的三分大赛会是连夜有趣的一对之一。

He then catches himself: “Funner’s not a word. [That’s] pretty bad.”

他冷不防补充到:“有趣不是一个词,而是指这太不好了。”

Maybe not, but with the way 3-point shooters are redefining the game,
it mightindeed be more fun.

可能不是,但三分射手以他们的方法重新定义竞赛,这的确可能是更有趣的。

德马库斯(马库斯)•考辛斯,达米恩•利拉德为首

The 2015 NBA All-Star Game starters were named a week ago and the
All-Star reserves have been named by the coaches around the league.
Now that we know who has made the All-Star rosters in both
conferences, it’s time to talk about which players were omitted. One
of the toughest parts of getting All-Stars everybody can agree on in
each conference is having enough spots for deserving players.

2015年NBA全明星赛首发名单在一个星期前一度昭示,而替补名单也已经由联盟中的教练们予以认可。现在大家早已精晓了全明星四个阵容当中的成员,是时候来商量这一个球员被遗漏了。对于全明星队伍容貌,最难让每个人都能落得一致意见的一部分是有充足的职务给应得的球员。

That’s practically impossible in the loaded Western Conference and
even a bit of a problem with the Eastern Conference this season. Guys
like DeMarcus Cousins and Damian Lillard were surprise omissions in
the West. Kyle Korver and Brandon Knight didn’t make it but could
still find their way in with Dwyane Wade’s injury. In fact, we’ll have
at least two injury replacements with Wade and Kobe Bryant, and maybe
even another one if LaMarcus Aldridge decides to rest that injured
thumb.

其一赛季对于西部全明星队伍而言这是几乎是不容许的,甚至在东部都不那么容易。像是德马库斯·考辛斯和达米安·利拉德这样的钱物都令人诧异的没有出现在西边名单之中。凯尔(Kyle)·科沃尔和布兰顿·奈特也没能入选,但由于德怀恩·韦德的伤病,他们依旧有空子挤入名单之中。事实上,由于韦德和科比的伤病将会至少有多少个替补名额,也可能还会扩大一个名额假使阿尔德里奇(Richie)拔取休息他受伤的大拇指。

So who were the toughest omissions/snubs in both conferences and
whocould have a great chance at being an injury replacement? Let’s
take a look atthe candidates:

因而在东西部全明星名单中,什么人是最不应该被遗漏的吗?何人又有最大的恐怕变成伤病替换球员吗?让我们来看一看候选人名单:

EASTERNCONFERENCE  东部联盟

Kyle Korver, Atlanta Hawks: Kyle Korver probably isn’t your
traditional type of All-Star but in an era of basketball in which
we’re getting smarter about the way we judge and dissect players, we
can see just how deserving he is. He’s been arguably the most
impactful player on the Eastern Conference’s best team. Yes, he
doesn’t average that many points, but his shooting threat makes all
defenses terrified to leave him. When they do, he buries them with
historically great shooting. And don’t think of him as just as hooter;
he’s a fantastic team defender on one of the best defenses. He’s the
early favorite to replace Wade.

Kyle•科沃尔,胡志明市老鹰队:他可能不是一个传统类另外全明星,但是在一个大家以更好的法门评价和分析球员的一代,他值得全明星的称谓!他得以说是东部最好阵容中最有功用的球员。是的,他场均得分并不是很高,然则她的抛投使得防守球员只可以寸步不离地接着他。一旦有一丝一毫的松懈,他将用她英雄的抛投淹没他们。不过别觉得他仅仅只是一名射手;他依旧一名突出的集体防守者。他将最有机会取代韦德出席东部全明星队伍。

Brandon Knight, Milwaukee Bucks: The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of
the nicer surprises in the Eastern Conference and Brandon Knight has
been the best player on the team all season long. Jason Kidd relies on
Knight to set the tone on offense and he’s been a willing and capable
defender too. With 17.9 points, 5.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals,
and 43.9 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from 3-point range,
he’s having a career year across the board. He’s in heavy competition
with Korver for the replacement.

布兰顿·奈特,里尔雄鹿队:开赛以来,雄鹿队在东部是让人吃惊的武装之一,布兰顿·奈特则是队中最好的球员。贾森·基德以Wright为攻击的基本功,同时他也是一个甘当且有能力的防守球员。场均17.9分,5.1次助攻,4.2个篮板,1.6次抢断,43.9%的抛投命中率和40.8%的三分命中率,这是他职业生涯中完善暴发的一年。他是科沃尔强有力的竞争者。

Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards: The Washington Wizards are one of
the top defensive teams in the NBA and Marcin Gortat is a huge reason
for that.John Wall’s top pick-and-roll partner has been anchoring the
Wizards’ defense all year, helping them be a top 7 defense. Gortat’s
averages of 12.0 points and 8.2 rebounds are lesser numbers for him,
but his impact has been felt throughout the season.

马辛·戈塔特,华盛顿奇才队:奇才是同盟中极品防守球队之一,马辛·戈塔特是里面功不可没。作为沃尔的顶级挡拆搭档一向在球队的防守上有着很大的贡献,使球队成为防守最好的两只球队之一。对于戈塔特而言,场均12分和8.2个篮板有些下降,但整整赛季他的效应是值得肯定的。

Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons: Andre Drummond had a disastrous first
month of the season, but once December hit and especially after Josh
Smith was waived, Drummond came on board to be the monster center we
expected under Stan Van Gundy. He’s one of only a couple players
putting up averages of at least 12 points and 12 boards, and his field
goal percentage is about to eclipse the 50.0 percent mark, despite the
uptick in post possessions. Without that bad November, he might be a
lock to have made the team.

安德烈(Andre)·德拉蒙德(Mond),底特律活塞队:赛季的率先个月是惨不忍睹的,然而13月的精良发挥,尤其是约什·史密斯(Smith)的相距,在斯坦·范甘迪的管教下,他变成了一个大家所期待的怪兽级的大前锋。他是唯二的可以场均取得至少12分和12个篮板的球员,他的抛投命中率接近50%稍显暗淡,即使在随后有所升级。假诺没有不好的3月,他可能锁定全明星阵容。

Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic: Speaking of giant, double-double
centers, the 19.5 points and 11.2 rebounds from Nikola Vucevic every
night have been stellar for the Magic. He’s still not a great defender
but he’s slowly improving his team defense. Having Aaron Gordon back
in the lineup and the starting duo of Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton
should help that a bit. And he’s their anchor on offense, forcing the
defenses to swarm the post and battle him on the boards. He might be
tough to keep off the team next season.

尼古拉·武切维奇,奥兰多魔术队:说到高大,双十小前锋武切维奇每晚拿到19.5分和11.2个篮板使她在魔术队成为当家球员。他还不是一个很好的防守者可是她正在日渐地增长他的守护力量。阵容当中有了阿隆·戈登,以及维克多(维克多(Victor))·奥拉迪波和埃尔弗Reade·佩顿最先享有协助有所作为。他是球队的攻击利剑,能够迫使对手夹击他。下个赛季的她很难不入选全明星军事当中。

WESTERN CONFERENCE西部联盟

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings: The uproar of DeMarcus Cousinsnot
being on the roster was very loud right after the West reserves were
announced. Cousins could end up being the first player in league
history that isn’t named to the All-Star team with averages of about
24 points and 12 rebounds. Cousins’ team isn’t bad because he can’t
lead them. They’re bad because he got sick, the coach was fired during
that window of opportunity, and Tyrone Corbin hasn’t been able to
bring things together. Cousins is one of a handful of deserving guys
in the West, squeezed out because of limited spots. He’ll be in heavy
consideration for replacement spots.

德马库斯(Marcus)·考辛斯,新山天子队:在刚刚发布西部阵容时,他的落选引起了一片哗然。考辛斯可以说是联盟历史上首先位拿到场均24分12板却没能提名进入全明星队的球员。球队的武功不佳不是因为他不可能引导球队,而是因为在时机来到的时候,他生病了,教练被解聘了,以及蒂龙·科尔宾没能将球队凝聚起来。在西面,由于名额有限而被拔除在为的考辛斯是一小部分值得成为全明星的球员之一。他将是代替者的一大重点考虑对象。

Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers: Damian Lillard will also be in
heavy consideration as Kobe’s replacement when Adam Silver makes that
decision.Lillard has helped the Blazers get to one of the best records
in the NBA, and his exclusion from the first run of reserves before
replacements were announced was surprising. He has the highest scoring
average (21.8), rebounding average(4.6), steals average (1.3), and
field goal percentage (43.2 percent) of his career. He’s also one of
the best clutch scorers in the NBA.

达米恩·利拉德,新山开拓者队:在亚当(Adam)·萧华做决定时,利拉德也是顶替科比的球员的重大考虑对象。他扶助开拓者取得了联盟中最好的实绩之一,在代表名额发布往日,被破除在板凳席名单之中也是令人感叹的。他取得了职业生涯最高的平均得分(21.8分)、平均篮板(4.6个)、平均抢断(1.3次)和抛投命中率(43.2%)。他要么联盟中最好的基本点先生之一。

Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies: Mike Conley has been one of the best
point guards in the NBA on one of the best teams in the first half of
the season, but the Western Conference is so loaded that I’m not even
sure how you argue he should be in over any of the reserves selected.
That’s not a knock on him either. It’s just that loaded. For Conley,
he’s one of the league’s best defensive point guards and he puts up
17.4 points, 5.6 assists, and shoots over 40.0 percent from 3-point
range.He really doesn’t have aweakness on the floor and plays
perfectly off of Marc Gasol at the end of games.

Mike·康利,金沙萨灰熊队:就赛季半程而言,Mike·康利在最好的球队之一打球,是结盟中最好的小前锋之一。然而西部全明星队是这般的豪华以至于我也不确定她可以代替哪一位球员成为西部全明星队中的一员。这并不是一个否认,只是西方太过火丰饶。对于康利,他是联盟中最好的防守型得分后卫之一,他平均每场能获取17.4分、5.6次助攻以及40%的三分命中率。他在场上没有缺陷,在较量的末段每天缺少马克(Mark)·加Saul(加索尔(Saul))时也呈现周全。

Monta Ellis, Dallas Mavericks: Monta Ellis have it all, but he didn’t
have it All-Star this season.He’s been a revelation since joining the
Dallas Mavericks last season. This season, he’s putting up 20.5 points
and 4.4 assists, while posing as the top playmaking option at the end
of games for the Mavericks. Prior tothe Rajon Rondo trade, Ellis
helped the Mavericks put up the league’s bestoffense.He’s hard to call
a snub,but it’s hard to say he hasn’t had an All-Star caliber season.

蒙塔·埃利斯,布拉格小牛队:蒙塔·埃利斯有所一切,但她没有这一个赛季全明星。自从上个赛季加盟哥本哈根小牛队她鼓足了后来。本赛季,他取得20.5的场均得分和场均4.4次的助攻,并且是球队竞技最后每一日得分的第一采取。在拉简隆多的贸易往日,埃利斯协助小牛成为联盟中最好的强攻球队。他很难说是被冷落,但是也很难说他没有一个全明星水准的赛季。

Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors: The Atlanta Hawks got three
All-Stars, so why don’t the Golden State Warriors have three
All-Stars? Well, they play in the crazily packed West, so that cuts
down on chances to make the All-Star team. Draymond Green has been
their third best player and one of the league’stop defenders. His
averages of 11.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6steals, and 1.4
blocks show his versatility. His 3-point shooting has dipped below
league average but he’s still a very real threat you have to close out
on. He wasn’t robbed but he was pretty deserving.

德Raymond(Mond)·格林(格林(Green)),金州勇士队:波士顿老鹰队有了两个全明星球员,这为何金州勇士队不可能也装有呢?不过她们在疯狂的西部打球,所以进入全明星的机遇就大大下跌。他的场均得分为11.8分,场均篮板数为8.0,场均助攻数为3.6,场均抢断有1.6以及场均1.4次盖帽无一不出示着他的博大精深。他的三分球命中率低于联盟平均水平,但如故是一个您不容忽视的威慑。他不是被剥夺但她应该成为全明星中的一员。

注:萧华如今已经指定考辛斯代表科比,进入全明星队伍容貌。
