Player Profile: Brook Lopez – The Star

籃網的明星-布魯克·羅培茲

There is no player who exemplifies the current Nets roster more than Brook Lopez. Since he was drafted 10th overall in the 2008 NBA draft, Lopez witnessed the Nets moving from New Jersey to Brooklyn, firing an array of head coaches and slowly turning into the league’s laughing stock. None of it was his fault; throughout his eight seasons with the Nets, Lopez was often the brightest spot in an increasingly disappointing and doomed squad. As time went on, his production steadily reached all-star numbers: 18.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per season.In 2013, he made his first appearance in an All-Star game.

提到最近的籃網不得不提到Brook Lopez,從08年第十順位被進入籃網選中後,他目睹了球隊從紐澤西搬到布魯克林、經歷了不斷更換總教練,而球隊也漸漸淪為笑柄。

這不是他的錯,在眾多失望和厄運中,Lopez時常扮演希望的角色,他的生涯繳出了全明星的成績: 18.3分 7.4板 1.7鍋,在2013年也進入了全明星賽。

And it seems as if his story with the Brooklyn Nets is not yet finished. Mere days after Sean Marks took over the reins as the team’s general manager, he went out of his way to assure Lopez that he considered him a building block for the long-term.

他在籃網的生涯還沒結束,馬克上任沒幾天就去找了Lopez,他希望Lopez是隊伍長遠的基石。

Along with his twin brother Robin, Brook Lopez started off his basketball career at San Joaquin Memorial, a high school situated in Fresno, California. In 2006, the Lopez twins moved to the Stanford University, which was to be their home for the next two years. In their sophomore season, the duo led the Stanford Cardinal to the Sweet Sixteen of the 2008 NCAA Tournament, narrowly defeating Marquette on a buzzer-beater by Brook Lopez. After being named to the All-Pac-10 First Team, Brook Lopez declared for the 2008 draft, where he was eventually selected by the New Jersey Nets. With Robin Lopez getting drafted by the Phoenix Suns, this marked the first time he and Brook would not be playing for the same team. Considering the twin 7-footers had an innate understanding of each other’s games, many NBA analysts were wondering how the separation would affect their playing styles.

Lopez和Robin這對雙胞胎高中和大學都在一起打球,大二時幫助史丹佛打進NCAA的16強,Lopez差一點就絕殺了馬凱特大學,入選太平洋聯盟第一隊後,Lopez宣布投入選秀。

他被紐澤西籃網選中,而Robin則是被太陽選走,這是兩兄弟首次分隔,NBA分析師們想知道這隊他們兩個打法會產生什麼影響。

As it turned out, Brook Lopez figured it out quickly enough. After the team’s starting center Josh Boone suffered a minor injury, Lopez seized the opportunity with both hands and started producing decent numbers in his characteristic, quiet way. By the end of the season, the starting spot was his to lose; in addition to being the fourth best blocker in the entire NBA (154), he was voted the third best rookie of the year. His statistics gradually improved in the two seasons that followed, but a right foot injury during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season saw him play only five games throughout the year. During this period, the Nets were not particularly successful, even after trading for the All-Star guard Deron Williams; in addition to missing the playoffs in each of the four seasons, their 12-70 record in the 2009-10 season was one of the worst records in the history of the league.

事實證明,Lopez很快就明白該怎麼做,在球隊先發中鋒受傷後,Lopez抓住了這個機會,並打出了好看的成績,到了季末,Lopez已經搶下了先發的位置。

他的154個火鍋名列NBA第四,並在NBA年度最佳新秀票選中獲得第3名。

之後兩季的數據也慢慢成長,但右腳的傷勢讓他在11-12縮水球季只打了5場比賽。

在這段時間,即使交易來了Deron Williams,籃網的戰績也不好看。

09-10球季甚至創下當時NBA史上最爛戰績。

The move to Brooklyn and a four-year contract extension worth $61 million seemed to be a signal of a fresh start for Lopez, the feeling validated when he was invited to the first All-Star Game of his career. The 2012-13 season also saw him venture into the playoffs for the first time in his career. Though the Nets were eventually defeated by the Chicago Bulls in a hard-fought seven game series, Lopez started all seven games for his team and averaged 22.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and an incredible 3.0 blocks per game. The future seemed bright for the Nets and their fans.

之後籃網給Lopez的四年新約似乎象徵新的開始,12-13不僅自己入選明星賽,也幫球隊打入季後賽。

雖然,在第一輪大戰七場後被公牛淘汰,但Lopez繳出22.3分 7.4板 3鍋的亮眼成績讓籃網和球迷們看到了希望。

And then, of course, they traded for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry. Following a foot injury that took Lopez out of contention after just 17 games in the 2013-14 season, he returned to his old ways the following season and played an integral part in the Nets’ journey to the playoffs, where they lost a six game series against the Atlanta Hawks.As Billy King’s experiment quickly turned into a disaster, Lopez entered the 2015-16 season as the team’s only reliable go-to scorer, recording over 20 points per game in an otherwise unremarkable year.

之後籃網交易來了狼王(Kevin Garnett)、真理(Paul Pierce)和Jet(Jason Terry)。

13-14賽季,Lopez打了17場後隨即報銷。

14-15賽季,Lopez傷癒回歸,該季籃網打進季後賽,不過在首輪2-4被老鷹淘汰。

隨著當時籃網總經理Billy King一連串操作失敗。

15-16的Lopez孤立無援,雖然自己拿下20.6的均分,但籃網的戰績卻很難看。

In his eight-year NBA career, Lopez has been the definition of a multi-faceted scorer. Capable of getting to the basket in a myriad of ways, Brook Lopez has proven himself as one of the most offensively gifted big men in the league. His abilities to finish at the rim,attack the basket off the dribble and score a jumper from near the three-point line have all reached elite levels. He has always been a huge pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop threat, and he has only gotten more efficient in that aspect over the years. His post-ups are a thing of beauty; he can spin around defenders and finish through contact, hit them with a series of jab steps and move in for an easy layup or shoot a fade-away jumper from a safe distance. This kind of versatility is a rare skill in today’s NBA, especially when it comes with the body of a 7-footer.

Lopez在八年的NBA生涯中不斷證明自己是進攻多樣的得分武器。

他能以不同方式把球放進籃框,他是這個聯盟最具攻擊力的大個子之一。

他的禁區終結、運球突破和中長距離都屬上乘。

檔拆方面不管是往內切或往外投都是巨大的威脅,而且這些年來他的擋拆變得更高效。

他的低位腳步堪稱優美,他可以轉身閃過防守者、做試探步後可以選擇切入或是後仰跳投。

現今擁有這麼多攻擊武器的球員已經很少見了,更不用說他是個七呎長人。

Despite his scoring prowess getting most of the press, Lopez has always been an underrated facilitator. Since he was a focal point of the team’s offense during the majority of his time with the Nets, he didn’t often get the chance to throw the ball to somebody else.However, he routinely looks for cutters before going to town in the post, and he is patient enough to wait for the right opportunity to present itself. His quick feet and shot blocking ability also make him a decent defender, though his propensity to stick close to the basket on the defensive end is definitely something he should work on.

大家都把目光聚焦在他的得分能力上,卻常低估他的應策。

他在籃網一直是進攻主力,很少有機會把球傳給隊友。

然而在磨入低位前他總會看有沒有人切入,他也很有耐心等待進攻時機成熟。

快速的腳步和蓋火鍋的能力使他成為一個好的防守者。

不過,他防守過於固守禁區的這點需要改善。

While most NBA executives likely wouldn’t hesitate to trade Lopez away for a couple of draft picks and more cap space,the reality is a lot different. He’s simply too talented of a scorer and too much of a proven commodity to command such a low price. In a landscape where Timofey Mozgov can get a four-year, $64 million deal, the Nets are better off holding onto Lopez and making him an integral part of their future roster. Sean Marks was smart enough to realize this as soon as he took over as general manager, and it doesn’t seem likely we’ll see Brook Lopez in another jersey for the foreseeable future. Now all he needs is a roster that can emphasize his strengths, and Jeremy Lin is the perfect partner for the Brook-LIN™ pick& roll.

籃網並沒有把Lopez交易出去換取選秀權和薪資空間。

對比全能的進攻身手,以現在的價碼來說他根本便宜。

馬克在接任總經理後了解到Lopez依舊是未來藍圖的一部分。

我們並不會看到Lopez穿上別隊的球衣。

Lopez現在該做的就是極大化自己的力量,而林書豪將是他檔拆的完美夥伴。
