被小孩看扁成為動力 Green找回對比賽的熱愛和快樂

勇士在這個賽季是被看好有機會重返季後賽,但沒想到的是會打出15勝2負的開局戰績,還有制霸聯盟的攻守一體球賽內容。

這樣勢如破竹的氣勢不但讓球迷看得開心,就連球員也跟著興奮起來。相較上季提不起勁的感覺,跟著球隊一起找回狀態的Draymond Green就表示他再次找到了「對比賽的熱愛和快樂」。


引用「我剛剛又找到了那種愛,我經歷了很多事情,那股熱情會稍微減弱。但我剛找回了對比賽的熱愛和快樂,我只要享受打球和控制我可以控制的東西,今年對我來說的一個重點就是控制我能控制的事就好。」

幫助勇士在2015年至2019年間連續5次打進NBA總決賽後,有許多人開始質疑Green在經歷了2個低迷的賽季後是否還能打出高水平的球賽內容。Green也承認,他希望自己的表現能夠讓孩子知道父親是NBA的頂尖球員,這成為了重新奮起的動力來源。


引用「我的兒子越來越大了,另外我的大女兒現在也7歲了。如果我們輸球,他們就會生氣,所以這就是動力。我也認為對我來說過去幾年一直很糟糕,所以我的孩子們並不是真正了解我有多優秀。我希望他們看到我有多好,現在的我又回到了那個最佳水準,所以這激勵我想在他們面前打出好球,讓他們了解我的工作。」

「最重要的是我想贏,我想再次成為年度最佳防守球員,我想再次成為全明星。這激勵著我,因為很多人都把我排除在外了。人們相同的誤解在我剛進入聯盟的時候就有過了,很多人不斷懷疑我,而這就像是火上澆油一般點燃我的鬥志。」


隊友和教練們都意識到Green這個賽季的變化,也一致認為這是勇士為什麼能在賽季初就打出卓越成績的關鍵。

引用總教練Steve Kerr:「我認為Draymond Green是世界上最好的防守者,他本賽季開局的表現讓人難以置信。他有滿滿的動力,每個晚上都非常投入在比賽中。」


引用勇士隊後衛Jordan Poole說: 「過去2年有點艱難,我認為他真的有這樣的感覺,但我們回來了,我們有機會真正做到這一點。尤其是那些有經驗的老將,他們知道這需要什麼,我認為他們從第一天起就做得非常好,試圖讓我們處於最佳狀態。」

雖然一向是有自信的球員,但Green對於球隊和自己的火熱狀態還是感到有些不可思議,他提到除了心理層面以外的改變。


引用「我現在比以往任何時候都更加照顧自己的身體,我不再像以前那樣喝酒了。我現在31歲,所以我嘗試做任何有必要的事情來確保我的身體健康。」

「我不一定會說一切都很順利,但有點驚訝它進展得如此之快。我認為在比賽中不管我們是誰,我們都正以應該有的方式來面對比賽,所以我對這一切感覺很好,對我們的團隊感到滿意。我們有很多有自信的人,不過我們必須繼續變得更好,還有很長的路要走。」

引用"I've just kind of found that love again," Green said following the 119-104 victory. "Kind of go through a lot of s--- and the love kind of wanes a little bit. But I've just found that love and joy for the game and I'm just enjoying playing basketball and controlling what I can control. A point of emphasis for myself this year was simply to control what I could control.

引用"My son is getting older, my oldest daughter -- she's 7 now -- they kind of get on my ass if we lose," Green said. "So that's motivation. And I think for me also, I've been s--- the last couple years, so my kids don't really understand how good I am. And I want them to see how good I am so they'll have an understanding. And so that is motivation for me. When I was playing at the top of my level, which I'm getting back to that now, they were like 3 and 1, so that is motivating for me to play well in front of them so they have an understanding of what I do.

"And most importantly I want to win, I want to be a Defensive Player of the Year again, and I want to be an All-Star again. And that is motivating me because a lot of people had counted me out. Same mistake people made before when I first came into the league -- but a lot of people doubted me, and doubted me again. And that's fuel to the fire."

引用"I think Draymond Green is the best defender in the world," coach Steve Kerr said. "I think he's had just an unbelievable start to the season. He's so motivated. He's so engaged every single night."

引用"I think he knows as well as everybody else that we go as far as he goes, as far as Steph goes and the rest of our vets," Warriors guard Jordan Poole said. "The last two years have been a little bit rough and I think he really gets the sense like, 'All right, we're back.' And we got a chance to really do this. And especially the guys with experience, they know what it takes and I think they're doing a really good job from day one, just trying to put us in the best possible situation to be ready for that."

引用"I take better care of my body today than I ever have," Green said. "I don't drink really anymore like I used to. I used to go after it a little bit. I'm 31 years old now so I try to do all the necessary things to make sure my body is in shape and ready to go. Lifting more than I ever have."

"I wouldn't necessarily say surprised that it's going well, but a little surprised that it's going as well, as fast as it is," Green said. "Everyone talks about our schedule, there's some truth to that. I think we haven't had the toughest schedule in the world, but you can only play who they put out there in front of you, and I think regardless of who we're playing we're handling our business the way it should be handled, so I feel good about it, our team feels good about it. We have a lot of confident guys; we got to continue to get better, though. We got a long ways to go."
