Pre-reading 1. Can you name some famous NBA players? 2. How much do you know about Yao Ming? 3. What do you think of basketball stars? Do you believe that they are the key to the success of a game?
译文 译文 z.w 1 What We Can Learn from YAO When I was a child, my father (having no son) decided he would instill a love for sports in both of his daughters. While my dear sister leant more towards football, a love for basketball took rootin my own heart and flowered. I can remember the smiling face of Sam Cassell. His profound love of the game caused him togrin and laugh after taking a three-point shot that made everyone jump to their feetand gasp in anxiety. As the ball made a soft “swish” through the basket, the audience exploded insounds of joy. And of course he is a great man.
译文 译文 z.w 2 Hakeem Olajuwon came to us from Nigeria as a painfullyshy and humblefreshman who would make a name for himself at the University of Houston. We watched his career on the courtand also saw him grow into his position as a center. We watched his skills progress and saw him lead a fieryyoung team to back-to-back world championships. Another man would come to Houston, bigger than the last, and just as great in spirit. Yao Ming hails fromShanghai, China, a world as distant to most Houstonians as the other side ofthe moon. However, what Yao Ming is teaching us is a lesson that the NBA and all who watch it should learn.
译文 z.w 3 We live in the age where freshmen with even the slightest amount of talentthumptheir chests and cry outloudly for attention. Sadly, the game of basketball has turned from a game with players who worked together as a team to a group of players led by one man. They chasetheir one-man show in order to promote themselves over their teams, but Yao Ming is changing all that. Yao hopsoff the benchduring a time-outto hand his teammates towels to wipe the sweat outof their eyes. You will rarely see him celebrate some achievement he has accomplished , but he will be the first one to high-fiveone of his teammates, or pat them on the back whether or not they make the shot.
译文 z.w 4 Yao Ming, as opposed to the other freshmen in his class, is decidedlya team player. He is an exciting player to watch, but he is also an ambassador to his country. He brings his customs of honor and unityto our shores, and I am thankful we have him.
