近日,NBA官方宣布,将对本届全明星赛进行改制,用以纪念科比-布莱恩特。

Kobe Bryant’s final jersey number will be something this year’s NBA All-Stars play to reach.

科比-布莱恩特的最终的球衣号码将会是今年全明星球员的奋斗目标。

The NBAannounced major changes to the All-Star format on Thursday, turning every quarter into a mini-game for charity before an untimed final quarter with a target score that will decide which team wins. Scores will be reset — back to 0-0 — at the start of the second and third quarters, then restored to begin the fourth quarter.

NBA在周四宣布了全明星比赛形式的主要变化,把每节比赛变成了一个小型的慈善比赛,最后一节不计时,获得特定分数的球队将获得胜利。第二第三节的开始的时候,分数将会被清零-回到零比零,然后重新开始第四节比赛。

That’s where thetributeto Bryant and the No. 24 jersey he wore for the last decade of his NBA career comes into play. The team that wins the All-Star Game will be the first to reach a target score, determined by the total points the team in the lead scored in the first three quarters combined — plus 24, the obvious nod to Bryant.

这就是对科比和他在NBA职业生涯最后十年所穿的24号球衣的致敬。赢得比赛的那支队伍将会是率先拿到预定的分数,这分数由分数领先的球队在前三节的总得分决定—— 再加上24分,这显然是对科比的致敬。

NBA虽然是一个商业联盟,但是此次全明星赛的安排以及一系列的纪念活动也显示了这个联盟温情的一面,这也或许是为什么我们喜欢这个联盟吧。

The NBA said there will be multiple tributes to Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and the seven others who lost their lives in Sunday’s helicopter crash throughout All-Star weekend, including the showcase game on Feb. 16. The target score is just one of them.

NBA宣称说在全明星周末时也将会有对于科比,他的13岁的女儿,吉安娜不同的致敬方式,吉安娜,还有七名在周日直升机事故中逝世的人们,包括在二月十六日的表演赛。目标分数就是其中的致敬方式之一。

"We spent a lot of time considering the right target number to use for the fourth quarter," said Byron Spruell, the NBA’s president for league operations. "Through the events of this week it became clear to us that the only appropriate number for this season’s All-Star game is 24."

“ 我们花费了许多时间去思考四节比赛最适合的目标分数,” NBA联盟运营总裁拜伦·斯普瑞尔(Byron Spruell)说到。经过了这一周的所发生的事件我们清楚地知道对于今年这个全明星赛最适合的数字是24。

当然,如何让日渐儿戏的全明星赛重新激烈起来,并由此拉回收视率也是这次全明星赛改制所考虑的一个方面,但实际效果还要在比赛当天才能揭晓。

The target score is the latest addition to the NBA’s quest to make the game more competitive, something that players have wanted for some time.

目标分数是NBA为了让比赛更加有竞争性最新的附加条件,这是球员一直以来都想要的。

The team that has the most points after the first quarter will win $100,000 for its charity. The same will apply to the second and third quarters. The scores get added for the fourth to set the target score — for example, if the score is 100-95 at that point, then the team that wins the All-Star Game will be the first to reach 124.

在第一节比赛结束后分数最多的那支队伍将会赢得十万美元的善款。第二节和第三节也是同样的规则。第四节是这样用增加分数来设定目标分数的——打比方,如果当时的分数是100-95分,那么赢得全明星赛的球队将是第一个达到124分的球队。

The target score concept is something that the NBA has been considering since last summer, when National Basketball Players Association president Chris Paul — a big fan of The Basketball Tournament, a winner-take-all $2 million event composed mostly of college alumni teams — reached out to say the league should explore the concept.

关于目标分数的概念是NBA从去年夏天就开始考虑的事情,美国国家篮球运动员协会主席克里斯·保罗是篮球锦标赛的超级粉丝,一个主要由大学校友团队组成的赢者通吃的200万美元的活动——提出联盟应该探索这个概念。

The Basketball Tournament uses what is called the Elam Ending; the game clock is turned off at the first stoppage with 4:00 or less in the fourth quarter, and the target score there is eight points more than the leading score at the time.

这个篮球联赛使用的是所谓的Elam结尾;在比赛第四节少于或等于4分钟时间里的第一次暂停时,停止计时,目标比分是当时的领先的分数再加8分。

For now, this is a one-year change, though the NBA is hopeful that the quarter-score for charity element and the target-score ending become part of the All-Star Game on a long-term basis.

目前,这是这一年的变化,虽然NBA希望每节的得分的慈善元素和以目标分数为结尾成为全明星比赛长期的重要部分。

"If successful, I would imagine we keep it moving," Spruell said.

“如果它十分的成功,我可以想像我们将会不断地向前推进。” 斯普瑞尔说道。

愿死者安息,生者坚强。无论如何,曼巴精神将在NBA永远传承,小飞侠的故事也将在一代代的球迷球员的口耳相传中继续辉煌下去。
