姚明: 新式中锋 Yao Ming: New Center Style

If 20 years ago you asked the average American basketball fan if a Chinese man could play center for an NBA team, his answer might have sounded something like this: “Ha ha. No, he'd be too short!” But now, the doubters are silent. Who closed their mouths? Houston Rockets, 2.26-meter-tall center Yao Ming, from China.

20年前,你问一般的美国篮球迷,中国人可不可能打NBA球队的中锋,回答很可能是:“哈哈,不可能,身高一定不够!”但是现在,心存怀疑的人都不说话了。是谁让他们闭嘴的呢?休斯敦火箭队身高2.26米,来自中国的中锋姚明。

Yao Ming grew up in a family of basketball players. When he was 12, Yao Ming started going to an athletics academy outside of Shanghai and later spent a lot of time studying NBA games televised in China.

姚明出身篮球世家。12岁时,姚明开始到上海市郊一所体育学院就读,后来还花了许多时间研究中国电视转播的NBA篮球赛。

All this has paid off. Yao's first NBA honor was his ranking as No.1 draft pick, and he's been elected for a Rookie-of-the-Month award. Yao Ming has a style different from those of tall centers in the past. He rarely goes for the flashy slams. He'd rather show off his silk-smooth free-throw shots, or use his height to pop in jump shots from the three-point line.

付出的一切都会有回报。姚明的第一个NBA荣誉是成为选秀排名第一的球员,并且曾获得单月最佳新秀奖。姚明的风格与过去其他高大的中锋不同。他很少做花哨的灌篮,而是展现如丝般顺畅的罚球,或是利用身高优势自三分线跳投。
