Kobe Bryant, basketball player, was killed in a helicopter crash on January 26th, aged 41. 

籃球運動員科比·布萊恩特于一月26日在一起直升機事故中逝世,享年41歲。

Whenever he was asked why his whole life had been spent playing basketball, Kobe Bryant's narrow eyes searched upwards, and his mouth trembled. The answer was simple, yet so complicated. It began with the orange ball, the smell of it, the feel of the pebbled leather grains and the perfect grooves under his hands; and its bounce, and the way it sounded different on concrete or polished hardwood. 

每當有人問科比為何他的一生都花在打籃球上時,科比就會瞇起眼睛向上看,嘴巴顫抖著。答案很簡單,但是也很復雜。故事開始于這個橙色的球,它的氣味,粗糙的皮革紋理和他手上完美的紋路;還有它的彈跳,以及它彈在混凝土或拋光硬木上產生的不同聲音。

Then came the net, the shot slithering right through it with that triumphant springing whoosh, while he howled with joy. Then every movement of the game, the strategies, the dodging and feints, the squeal of sneakers on the court. Whatever had thrilled him as a child (watching his father, also a pro player, on tv, wearing his own little 76ers outfit, running and jumping along with him) still thrilled him when in 2016 he retired from the game. "Dear Basketball", he wrote, From the moment I started rolling my Dad's tube socks And shooting imaginary Game-winning shots... I knew one thing was real: A love so deep I gave you my all. 

然后還有籃網,籃球滑過了網,發出了勝利的、跳躍的、嗖的一聲,科比則高興得號啕大叫。然后是比賽中的每一個動作,戰術,躲閃和佯攻,球場上運動鞋的尖叫聲。在科比還是孩子時,任何讓他興奮的事情(看他的父親,也是職業球員,在電視上,穿著自己的小小的76人隊的隊服,和他一起跑,一起跳),在2016年退役時同樣使他興奮。 “親愛的籃球”,他寫道,從我開始把我爸的筒襪卷成球狀,想象著投出比賽制勝球那一刻起,我就知道有件事情是真的:我是如此深愛著你,我會付出我的一切。

"My all" meant training obsessively, like a maniac. He would go to the gym and shoot for hours, all day, all night. Hundreds of times, not just taking shots, but making them, running steps and patterns, practising shots off the rebound. I ran up and down every court/After every loose ball for you. He would ponder what would make his game unstoppable and then work backwards from there, building it piece by piece, move by move, repeatedly. Then, when the actual game arrived, it was all just muscle-memory. 

“我的一切”指的是像瘋子一樣癡迷地訓練。他會去體育館打幾個小時,整天整夜。成百上千次,不僅僅是投籃,還有投籃,跑動的步伐和模式,在籃下練習投籃。我在每個球館上躥下跳,爭取著每一個機會。他會思考什么會讓他的比賽變得不可阻擋,然后從那里開始倒放,一點一點地增強,一步一步地重復增強。然后,當真正的比賽開始時,他只需釋放肌肉記憶就行了。
