Player Profile: Luis Scola – The Veteran

沙場老將-路易斯·斯科拉

Much like every other professional sports league, the NBA is constantly shifting its focus towards the promising youngsters. If you’re 36 years old, there’s a big chance your NBA career is done and dusted. The free agent list is filled with past-their-prime vets who never had much to offer beyond their athleticism and physical tools. However,having a good work ethic can give you a few more good years.

跟其他職業運動一樣,NBA的目光總是傾向在年輕肉體上。如果你已經36了,那有很大機會面臨凋零而且失業的情況。就算過去榮耀一身,失去青春的老將們是不會收到太多報價的。不過擁有良好的職業精神可以讓生涯延長幾年。

Case in point? Luis Scola. For the first eight seasons of his career, he was an inside presence who shot 60 three-pointers in 631 games. Once he arrived to the Toronto Raptors,he worked hard to add some range to his repertoire. The results were impressive:he hit 65 of his 161 3-point attempts, which translated to 40.4% behind the line. That kind of attitude is exactly why Sean Marks was so keen to add him to the Brooklyn Nets roster.

Scola就是一例。他生涯前八年的631場比賽中只投了60次三分*。不過2015年轉到暴龍隊後就開始勤奮拓展他的射程。訓練結果令人印象深刻,整個球季三分球投161中65,命中率40.4%。馬克就是看中這種職業態度才找他來籃網的。

(*前八年總計三分投60中10)

Before he arrived to the NBA, Luis Scola was mostly known for his forays with the Argentina national team. In fact, the 2004 Olympic Games were probably the highlight of his entire career. In the semifinals, Scola contributed to his team shocking the entire basketball world by knocking out the mighty USA Team. In the finals, he led Argentina to its first Olympic gold by contributing the team-high 25 points and 11 rebounds. By the time he decided to join the NBA, his trophy room was filled with numerous trophies and awards from European and international basketball league.

進NBA前的Scola是阿根廷國家隊裡著名的攻城掠地武器*。他在雅典奧運的表現可說是生涯的高點,他和馬奴帶領阿根廷在四強賽打敗了美國隊,震驚了籃球界。接著在總決賽繳出全隊最高的25分11籃板幫助阿根廷拿下金牌。他決定要加入NBA時,已經從歐洲和國際賽場中拿下許多獎項和獎杯了。

(*感謝James和其他大大的註解)

Luis Scola made a name for himself with the Houston Rockets, where he played the first five years of his NBA career. He had an impressive rookie season, getting selected to the All-Rookie First Team.After securing the starting spot the following season, he became one of Rockets’ most reliable players. The 2010-11 season was his best one statistically, as he averaged 18.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists pergame. In the 2012 off-season, the Rockets waived Scola in an attempt to sign Dwight Howard, but the deal fell through. Scola went on to play for the Phoenix Suns, the Indiana Pacers and the Toronto Raptors during the following four years before signing a one-year, $5.5 million deal with the Nets.

Scola是在火箭成名的,他在火箭度過了在NBA的前五年。第一季的表現就讓人眼睛為之一亮,也入選了新秀第一隊。接下來的一季他就變成不動先發,是火箭倚賴的球員之一。10-11球季他的數據來到高峰,平均18.3分8.3籃板2.5助攻。12-13開季前,火箭為了招募魔獸,所以釋出Scola,不過當時魔獸並沒有去火箭。隨後四年Scola先後去了太陽、溜馬和暴龍,然後今年與籃網簽下一紙一年5.5M的合約。

Throughout his whole career, Scola has been a crafty contributor on the offensive end. As the years went on, he kept adding more and more new elements to his game. In addition to the aforementioned 3-point shot, he worked on his pick-and-pop game and added a dozen or so new post moves. His high basketball IQ allows him to score over his defenders in a variety of ways, often embarrassing them in the process. His head fakes and up-and-unders are a thing of beauty, and he executes them with seemingly minimal effort. He tries hard on both ends of the floor, never using his age as an excuse to coast through possessions.

綜觀他的生涯,Scola在進攻終結方面打得很聰明很有貢獻。他每年都會增加自己武器,不只是增強三分,他也研究檔拆向外拉和精進低位腳步。擁有高球商讓他可以用多種手段得分,而且常常耍得對方團團轉。他的假動作是一種藝術,而且看起來毫不費力。他在攻守兩端都很努力,從不把年齡當藉口。

However, Scola has never been a particularly athletic guy, and the 36-year-old version of him is hardly an improvement. Though he’s a hustler, his slow feet and the inability to jump make him a liability on the defensive end. His rebounding ability has taken a big hit in recent years, and he’s mostly forced to rely on rotating to the rim at exactly the right time. If his three-point shots aren’t falling in, he might not get much minutes over the season.

然而Scola不再年輕,不太可能再進步了。儘管他在場上很努力,但腳步慢、跳不高讓他在防守端變成漏洞。這幾年他漸漸失去籃板能力,他非常依賴卡位和搶板時機。如果他的三分不準,那上場時間就不會很多。

Though Scola was Toronto’s starting power forward throughout the regular 2015-16 season, they didn’t really have many other options. His playing time with the Nets will likely depend on how much fuel he’s got left in the tank. With Trevor Booker, Chris McCullough and Anthony Bennett all providing additional options at the power forward spot,it’s reasonable to assume that Scola might get some minutes as the team’s small ball center. On the other hand, he’s currently the only big man on the roster who can reliably hit a 3-pointer. If Kenny Atkinson starts looking for some outside shooting, he won’t have many options to turn to.

雖然Scola上季在暴龍還是先發大前鋒,但那是因為暴龍沒什麼選擇。他在籃網的上場時間取決於他能給籃網多少動能。在Booker、CMC和AB都能打大前的情況下,Scola有可能偶爾客串小球中鋒。另一方面,Scola也是陣中唯一三分可以信賴的大個子*。如果阿金需要外圍投射,那他的選擇真的不多。

(*Hamilton:別忘了我啊QQ)

At 36 years old, Luis Scola presents the best kind of veteran presence a team can hope to have. In addition to being a fantastic locker room guy, he can teach the younger players a lot about the league. Though he might seem like just another stopgap for the Nets, Scola brings a lot of intangibles with him. His vast experience and consummate professionalism will certainly be of some use to the team during the upcoming season.

對於36歲的Scola來說,他展現了老將最好的一面。在休息室裡他能教年輕小夥子們有關於聯盟的事物。或許Scola不會在籃網待很久,但他可以帶入很多無形的東西,他的經驗和敬業態度會在來季發揮作用的。


 

翻完這篇開始為籃網對手的禁區感到可憐了

    1. 籃網禁區各有特色,功能也不太一樣

      蠻期待CMC和AB會養成什麼樣子的

  1. his forays⋯⋯應該是指十克拉到NBA之前,他隨著阿根廷國家代表隊因為他的幾次攻城掠地(his forays)征戰而為眾所周知。尤其2004年奧運擊敗美國等隊拿下金牌,試著作答,僅供參考。

     

    1. 謝謝James大!!

      這樣解釋清楚多了

      我本來還以為是什麼籃球術語XD

  2. 翻譯軟體翻成“他的突襲”

    James大翻的比較口語易懂

    1. 我去差的時候也是查到突襲

      當下覺得一頭霧水

      James大的解釋我就懂了^^

    1. 感覺Scola久待的機率不大

      甚至有可能季中就被交易走…

  3. "進NBA之前,他就已經因為在阿根廷國家隊的異軍突起而聞名! “,這是小弟綜合大家版本的翻譯,供參!

    1. 謝謝zoo大

      晚點等板大教學出來我會再修改文章的^^

    2. His forays 的意思比較靠近James大説的。口語化一點說就是他出色的進攻手段。但爲什麽原作者不用比較通俗的字眼。應該是呼應他下文阿根廷隊在雅典爆冷(算是一種奇襲因爲再打一次未必就贏了)打敗了大熱門美國隊。

      1. 感謝大大的補充

        翻得時候有時候我會很懷疑自己誤翻或是超譯

        有各位大大的指正補充真的受益良多

  4. 多力大大果然很"多力",幾乎是每天一篇的速度來幫ISAY的大眾服務這些"譯文工作",而且翻譯的精準到位,在籃網下季正式開賽前,就讓各位豪朋友對林的隊友伙伴都有一個清楚的認識,小老兒自嘆不如!也替校長大大感到高興~

    我能貢獻的,大概只有一些個人的看法了!其實 Luis Scola是一名非常好用的選手,打的位置雖然是PF,但是他擁有的能力諸如運球 切入 中遠距離的投射甚至是抄截 助功等等都遠遠超過一個4號選手可以完成的工作,說他是一個全能選手並不為過,在號稱「黃金世代」的阿根廷五虎裡(Manu Ginobili (PG),Carlos Delfino(SG), Andres Nocioni(SF),Luis Scola(PF),Fabricio Oberto(C)),他算是Manu Ginobili之後的第二號人物,少了他的全方位手段,阿根廷拿不到金牌!

    當年選他進NBA的馬刺把他交易到火箭,我一直認為是個敗筆,只因為PF位置跟TD重疊就放棄他真的是太可惜了,如果沒放掉他或許馬刺可以多拿2個總冠軍!交易到火箭跟姚明配球的時代,他的籃下威力其大無比,生涯年18.3分 8.2籃板 2.5助功與50.4%的命中率(NBA生涯前四年命中率都破5成)即便是跟偉大的TD相比,數據上也略遜一籌而已!

    之後流浪在太陽 溜馬 暴龍的Scola少了以他為戰術核心的打法,數據上就逐漸褪色了!我覺得籃網找他來確實是一步好棋,除了PF的洞可以補上外,他能帶給這些年輕好手的有更多是「經驗的傳承與技術的指導」!上一篇談Trevor Booker時我有簡單提到美式PF與Scola這種全能PF的差異主要在於「技」的差異上,我用一句武術上的術語來概括或許大家會更容易懂:「拳怕少壯,棍怕老狼」(徒手搏鬥,年紀輕通常力氣大可占不少優勢,但用棍搏擊,情況就不同了。老的經驗豐富,不用跟你硬碰硬)

    講到"一球在手"時的玩球與假動作技巧,Scola絕對完勝Trevor Booker,但Trevor Booker那種籃下拼生死的"勇力"卻也是36歲的Scola所做不到的!但這種有趣的PF組合卻可以給籃網帶來不同的戰術打法,遇到防守堅強的球隊(如馬刺),不妨派上Scola先發,他的能力與經驗絕對可以搭配林的切入與Lopez的低位把對方的陣型給撕裂!如果碰上是攻擊型球隊(如太陽),那Trevor Booker這種猛將不單可以阻擋對方的攻擊,也有足夠的速度打反擊戰!

    我同意木棉仔大大的看法,目前先發五人上我認為比較清楚的方向是林(PG), Bojan Bogdanovic(SG),Rondae Hollis-Jefferson(SF)與Lopez(C),但在PF這個位置我是覺得可以按實際狀況來調整,36歲的Scola不用打固定先發(畢竟他有去打奧運體能消耗有差),但一些關鍵對手的比賽可以讓他上來打先發會非常好用,這一點其實可以參考馬刺對老球員的養生調節手法!話說回來36歲的Scola還能把3分球給練出來,就可以推斷出二點:第一,這老傢伙真的是籃球奇才,練一年就這麼准,第二,他知道「延伸四號」是NBA的新風向,沒有3分的PF很難立足所以這表示他還想在NBA多打幾年球!

    如果這一季整體綜效結果很好的話,我認為籃網應該再留他2年!也希望他能在火箭後再次找到會用他的球隊!

    1. M大出手就是不一樣XD
      其實我沒有到每天一篇啦,有些文章是上上禮拜就翻好的,只是沒放過來…

      先發PF我也是比較傾向給Booker
      因為上季Scola上季在場上100回合會輸11分
      如果先發上Scola的話防守會比較吃力

      不過板大也說了季中交易這個變數
      目前籃網離窮鬼線還有一大段距離
      看了看薪資結構,最有價值的就是瓦斯和Scola了
      所以也有可能上Scola,讓他數據好看一點

      嗯…我覺得Scola應該不會在籃網留很久

    2. 馬刺當初不是不想留Scola,五虎裡面的Oberto,Ginobili都在馬刺了,好不容易選到的Scola怎麼可能不想留?進NBA前的Scola可是被譽為NBA以外最強的藍球員!當年在世錦賽他的對手是巔峰的Gasol!(不過落在下風就是了)
      重要的是,Scola不想來馬刺!因為Scola的打法和Duncan太像,但是身高差一截,防守更是差一截,馬刺不可能把這兩人擺在一起先發;但是擺Scola替補,以當年Scola在歐盟的江湖地位是不可能的,Scola也知道不適合加入馬刺,就一直不和馬刺簽約,甚至放話不會加入NBA,而其他球隊知道馬刺的情形,也一直等著打劫馬刺,到了簽約權快要終止時,馬刺只好和火箭交易(幾乎是送給火箭)。
      而當初馬刺已經有兩個防守型的中鋒選秀要等著培養(Mahinmi and Splitter),所以雖知自己放掉什麼人物,但是也算是好聚好散,讓Scola有好的發展。

      1. 感謝Chiu大補充

        原來還有這段歷史啊

        想說奇怪選秀和加入NBA的時間也差太多了吧!

    3. 看到M大的介紹,覺得真的把給Luis Scola交易是很可惜的。

      球隊還是需要1~2位經驗豐富的老將,才能維持球隊的平衡和更衣室的風氣。kiss

  5. 重磅新消息,易建聯減薪,114萬USD回湖人…
    有JLIN上一年減薪進黃鋒的熱血,不成功便成仁
    如能逆襲莫兹科夫打小號中鋒還是很不錯

     

    1. K大,我對易沒什麼研究
      還真的不知道要回什麼,哈哈
      希望他Yi飛衝天囉~

  6. 來和校長打個招呼

    今年的休賽期感覺好長阿,好期待趕快跳到10月

    不過想到書豪可以趁這兩個月把三分球完全練起來

    一切等待都值得阿~~~

     

    1. 泱爸~
      晚上好,看到你很開心。
      雖然很漫長,但林書豪剛到籃網,給一些時間讓他先了解隊友的特性。
      也像你說的,把三分練起來…
      新球季開始時,一切等待就值了。
      一起為書豪加油。

      正在看奧運羽球跟跆拳的比賽中~~^^

    2. 泱爸和板大晚上好~
      小的也是休賽期沒比賽看,閒得發慌才開始翻文章來看的
      (呃…講的好像開季不翻一樣XD)

      好希望快點開季
      看林和隊友們狠狠打磚家的臉!

  7. Scola好像很晚才進nba,看大家寫的怎麼才9年nba而已,今天早上看美國對阿根廷,他擋不住Cousins,扛禁區不太行,但三分還不錯。我感覺他會是林書豪的好幫手,在外線出手,偶爾闖闖禁區得分,而且他個性應該不錯。

    1. 小小哆啦 晚上好~
      上面M大和Chiu大已經補充很多關於Scola的資訊了^^

      Scola在1996年的時後就進歐洲職籃了
      然後在2002年被馬刺選中,但2007年才進NBA打球
      這樣算一算他進NBA時已經是27歲囉~
      算球齡的話也差不多20年了
