" I was a team attendant (ballboy) in the NBA for three seasons " - THREAD

Τα παρακάτω είναι από ένα ΑΜΑ του reddit από έναν άνθρωπο που δούλεψε στο ΝΒΑ από το 2014-2017
Μάζεψα τις ερωτήσεις που εγώ θεώρησα καλύτερες και έκανα μια ελεύθερη μετάφραση στα ελληνικά (κάποιες
εκφράσεις τις άφησα στα αγγλικά γιατί πιστεύω δεν υπάρχει αντίστοιχα καλή μετάφραση)
Το original thread θα το βρείτε εδώ:

Βρίσκομαι σε ένα αεροδρόμιο και περιμένω πότε θα πετάξω γιατί η πτήση μου καθυστέρησε και αναπολώ τις χρονιές που δούλεψα στο ΝΒΑ
Βοηθήστε να σκοτώσω τον χρόνο μου, ρωτήστε με ότι θέλετε.

Ποιος παίκτης που το παίζει σκληρός και κακός ήταν στη πραγματικότητα ένας γλυκός και θερμός χαρακτήρας απέναντι σε προπονητές, σταφ κλπ ;

Οι Michael Beasley και Chris Anderson σίγουρα.
Ο Steven Adams επίσης ήταν

Let me get this straight. @joelklatt argues that playing college spring & fall football (which isn't necessary) is actually MORE dangerous for players than playing through #COVID__19 - When's the last time someone died on the football field? Because #COVID__19 has killed 130K
Not only is this absolutely wrong by any empirical measure it also speaks to the larger problem of how black lives are literally considered dispensable by college/professional and even most sports journalists. About 1% of #COVID__19 deaths are college aged…
So while @joelklatt argues there is "No" chance of player danger, that's just a 1% death rate, overall. Consider that almost HALF of all college football players are African American, where #COVID is twice as likely to result in death as in whites.…

Tras 22 temporadas, y a sus 43 años, Vince Carter anuncia su retirada.

Uno de los iconos de la #NBA y de los Raptors finaliza así una carrera ejemplar.

Pero... ¿Quién es Vince Carter? ¿Por qué un chico de Florida es uno de los mayores ídolos en Canadá?

ABRO HILO 🔽🔽🔽🔽 Image
Vicent Lamar "Vince" Carter, nació en Daytona Beach, Florida en 1977. Fue el primero de dos niños y cuando apenas tenía 8 años sufrió el abandono de su padre.

Comenzó a jugar con tan solo dos años aunque sus padres nunca fueron muy partidarios por robarle tiempo para estudiar. Image
En 1998 y tras 3 años en la universidad de North Carolina, donde no pudo ganar el campeonato de la NCAA, decide declararse elegible y presentarse al Draft de la #NBA.

Fue elegido en el 5º puesto por los Golden State Warriors, pero inmediatamente traspasado a los Toronto Raptors. Image

Qual a relação entre Martin Luther King Jr. e os uniformes do Memphis Grizzlies?

A #NBA tem o costume de promover ações para lembrar o MLK Day, em 18 de janeiro. No caso dos Grizzlies, a relação com o líder do movimento por direitos civis é ainda mais profunda.

Segue o fio! O reverendo Martin Luther King Jr. fala ao microfone durante um discurso.Jogador do Memphis Grizzlies dribla durante uma partida da NBA, ele usa um uniforme que homenageia Martin Luther King Jr.
Dado o momento gravíssimo que vivemos, vou me permitir escrever uma thread mais longa e detalhada. Espero que gostem do conteúdo e, se gostarem, peço que compartilhem para mais pessoas conhecerem essa evidência da importância de Martin Luther King Jr.
Em fevereiro de 1968, dois operários de saneamento público de Memphis trabalhavam, quando um problema elétrico fez o compactador de lixo entrar em funcionamento.

Echol Cole e Robert Walker morreram. O departamento de funcionários públicos se recusou a indenizar as famílias.

El mejor europeo en la historia de la #NBA  tiene una historia de película.

¿Cómo llegó a conquistar tierras lejanas?


Dirk nace en 1978, en Wurzburg, Alemania, un pequeño pueblo de Bavaria en dónde vivió toda su niñez.

Su padre Joerg, jugó para la Selección Nacional de Handball de la extinta Alemania Occidental mientras que su madre Helen fue una estrella del Seleccionado Alemán de Baloncesto.
El pequeño Dirk fue criado con buenos valores y desde muy temprana edad tenía que ayudar a sus padres en el negocio familiar (de pinturas para el hogar).

Esto explica la impecable carrera que ha tenido dentro y fuera de las canchas.

[HILO] Extractos de las memorias inéditas de Jerry Krause, todavía no publicadas.

"Nos reunimos a principios de julio de 1998 Jerry Reinsdorf, yo mismo, Jim Stack, Al Vermeil, los médicos y cirujanos del equipo."

#NBA #BullsNation #TheLastDance
"Le habíamos pedido al entonces asistente Chip Schaefer que presentara un informe escrito sobre la salud del equipo."
"La primera pregunta que hice fue cuánto creían que podíamos sacar de Luc Longley, un futuro agente libre que habíamos tenido que dosificar periódicamente en los últimos años debido a sus tobillos. Los médicos pensaron que se derrumbaría rápidamente."

The difference between the style of play in the 1998 Finals and today is staggering. 1/X
38% of all half court possessions in the 98 Finals were created out of one-on-one situations. The #NBA average this season was 16%. 2/X
The Bulls made 1 corner 3-point attempt over 6 games in the 98 Finals. The #NBA average this season was 3.0 makes per game. Chicago did, however, make 69 midrange jump shots. 3/X

1- Muitos já sabem o quanto sou viciado em #NBA e, consequentemente, a importância de #TheLastDance na minha vida (especialmente em quarentena). Naturalmente, estou vendo TUDO relacionado à série e, como diretor de TV, compartilho aqui uns detalhes de produção bem interessantes!
2- O diretor Jason Hehir já tinha boa parte de alguns eps montada, mas as últimas entrevistas com MJ foram feitas só em Maio de 2019. Em Jan/2020, eles não tinham nenhum episódio completo 😱!
Na 2a entrevista ele tava sem o charuto porque a mãe viu imagem da 1a e deu esporro.😂🚫
3- O cronograma de produção, especialmente finalização, foi MUITO apertado pra uma série dessa envergadura. No início desse mês eles ainda estavam fazendo cor e som dos eps 9 e 10!
PS: geralmente também finalizamos os últs eps do #QMEE qndo os primeiros estão indo ao ar.

You know what really sucks about the #coronavirus? How divided #America and #China will be when the dust settles...even before the virus happened, there was a huge anti-China sentiment rising in the West...why? Because Western government’s just can’t wrap their heads around what
China’s one party system has been able to accomplish in the last 30 years. Therefore every Western news station is trained to spread fear about China. We are told that Communism = Evil, and that the CCP is an evil empire. Have you ever been to #China before? Weren’t we taught as
children to never judge a book by its cover? Have you ever spoken to someone from China and asked them what they think about their country? What the government has been doing for their people?

(1) The communist-style Social Credit System has been operational in the US since before 9/11. This Stasi-styled protocol is coordinated through #FusionCenters with collusion of #FBI #DOJ #InfraGard #LEIUs #DHS #NSA.
(2) #SocialDistancing is actually an #FBI #DHS #FusionCenter tactic used on people targeted by rogue personnel in the Intel Community (#IC) as part of their "#Disruption protocol (government-funded Domestic #Terrorism).

The IC refers to "Social Distancing" as "Social Isolation."
(3) What most people do not realize is that anyone who has been black-listed by the rogue personnel in the Intel Community AKA the #NationalSecurityRacketeeringNetwork r set up for assaults, smear campaigns, and asset-rape at the hands of the #FBI #DHS & private contractors.

Illegal Defense - #NBA THREAD

Ένα σχόλιο για τις αλλαγές κανονισμών που έκανε το ΝΒΑ μετά το 2001 που διαμόρφωσαν το παιχνίδι έτσι όπως το βλέπουμε σήμερα.

Tη σεζόν 01-02 η Λίγκα αποφάσισε να προβεί στην ίσως πιο σημαντική αλλαγή των τελευταίων 40+ ετών. Την κατάργηση του
κανονισμού illegal defense (ή πιο σωστά την αλλαγή) επιτρέποντας έτσι την χρήση αμυνών ζώνης. Αυτή η αλλαγή έδειξε να ενοχλεί πολλούς παίκτες και ειδικά μεγάλους σκόρερ που λατρεύανε το iso ball.
Νωρίτερα, το 1999 είχε θεσπιστεί ο κανόνας 5 seconds back to basket μειώνοντας έτσι
το χρόνο που είχε ο επιθετικός με τη μπάλα και τη πλάτη γυρισμένη στη μπασκέτα (Barkley...). Ακόμα πιο πριν τη σεζόν σεζόν 97-98 προστέθηκε η λεγόμενη restricted area περιορίζοντας έτσι το δικαίωμα του αμυντικού να στηθεί κοντά στο καλάθι για επιθετικό φάουλ.

Did the #NBA change a lot during the last 20 years? Why is a game today very different compared to what you used to see as a kid? This is what this thread shall answer. Thread.
Thanks a lot to @pachamaltese for translation and improving the code!
4 million observations were analyzed since 2000 season up to 2019 season by using NBA's API. A first insight is that during 2019 season, there were 25,000 additional shot attempts compared to 2000 season. The game is much faster today.
@GustavinhoCARP tells us that today's slowest #NBA team (Charlotte Hornets) plays way faster than the fastest team from 2005 season (Phoenix Suns) that were known for their innovation of playing in 7 or less seconds

¿Cambió tanto la #NBA en los últimos 20 años? ¿Por qué un partido es tan distinto a lo que veías cuando eras chico? Eso es lo que voy a intentar responder en el siguiente hilo pero vamos a los bifes. Acá se ven todos los tiros de la liga en el 2000 versus 2019.
Se analizaron 4 millones de tiros desde la temporada 2000 hasta la 2019 con la API de la #NBA y luego usamos magia de #Rstats para jugar con los números. Lo primero que surge es que hoy se tiran casi 25.000 tiros más por temporada que en el 2000. Se juega mucho más rápido.
Como dato divertido aportado por el amigo @GustavinhoCARP el equipo más lento de la #NBA hoy (Charlotte Hornets) juega aún más rápido que el equipo más rápido de la temporada 2005 Phoenix Suns conocidos por su filosofía innovadora de jugar a 7 segundos o menos.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

“No se imaginan el impacto que tuvieron en mi vida, lonque me inspiraron”, les dice Parker a sus míticos compañeros del Big 3.
Y, de paso, competitivo, informa que Manu le está ganando al tenis! 😂 #MerciTony
Para la eternidad. #Big3 #Spurs #Tim #Manu #Tony 🇺🇸🇦🇷🇫🇷🙌💪❤️🏀
Tremenda afirmación de Duncan que marca lo que bancó Parker. Pop fue mas duro con él que con Manu!! Y eso no es poco decir luego de lo que MG hizo “renegar” al DT. TP9 aguantó, escuchó, aprendió y creció hasta ser el armador de cuatro campeonatos!! 🙌👏
