沈眉莊與甄環,George與Granger

沈眉莊是出名宮鬥劇甄環傳中的重要角色,初期和甄環、安陵容情若姊妹,當她得到皇帝寵信後,先是遭到華妃陷害假懷孕事件,讓她看清所有事情還是皇帝說了算,其後看到好姊妹甄環遭到無情流放,讓她對后宮鬥爭徹底死心,長年寂寞下,最後和高富帥溫太醫發生一夜情,背叛了雍正皇帝。

 

另一個故事是這樣的,Paul George進宮第一年只是個平均7.8分的替補,他視為大哥的Danny Granger一路提攜他,兩人聯手讓溜馬重返季後賽,在終於有機會爭冠的時候,總裁Larry Bird突然將Granger流放送往坦到最高點的七六人,George這時明白了誰說了算,球隊之後幾年未見起色,George最後和家鄉球隊湖人眉來眼去,意欲背叛溜馬。

 

George和Granger的兄弟之情是騙不了人的

 

好吧,其實筆者並非合體論支持者,也一向對小市場而不低頭的溜馬充滿敬意,只是在George搬出Granger來合理化他想離隊的正當性時,不免心生感慨,我們先來看下George怎麼說的:

 

"I just want to touch on, man, on my situation. I've seen a guy that played for that (Pacers) organization, gave that organization everything they had, or everything he had, and was essentially traded to the dogs. And I'm speaking on Danny Granger, who was one of the better players in Pacers history. And at the time, they traded him to the Philadelphia 76ers. And this was a guy that was battling injuries, and that's where you send him? The guy is trying to get back on his feet, trying to work back to this league, (and) you send him to the Philadelphia Sixers? Why, because that makes you better? Do what's right by the player that's given you everything. So (there) was a lot of that in my seven years there, a lot of that kind of played a role and (took) a toll on me on, 'Well, what will they do to me now? Like, where would I go?' So you know, it was, I think, God had me in this situation.  

 

George的語氣有些許憤慨,但也不全然是針對溜馬,他強調的是球隊有權力送走一個在隊史上都算優秀且勞苦功高的球員,只為了使現狀更好,是溜馬的作為推使他做出決定。

 

當然,這種話或多或少都有馬後炮的成分,筆者相信George和Granger的革命情感是真的,但假如溜馬在2014年真能擊退熱火稱霸東區,或George在16-17球季進入年度隊維繫住簽DPVE合約的資格(和母隊以總薪資35%續約),那他還會不會想離隊也是未必。

 

為了一個短利的補強,大鳥送走了他的大弟子

 

Granger這兩年已經離開了NBA戰場,他算是一個巔峰期短暫的球員,從07-08到11-12球季場均得分都在18分以上,最高曾有過25.8分的球季,不過那幾年主要是溜馬兵疲將弱,從進階數據來看Granger並非一個頂級的球星,2013年之後他就因傷逐漸失去舞台。

 

Granger最特殊的身分在於他可算是Larry Bird掌權後的大弟子,也是溜馬後神米時期的大師兄,大鳥在2003年暑假接下溜馬總管,先整頓一批中生代為Reggie Miller時代做最後一搏,在奧本山王宮事件之後溜馬進入重整,2005年大鳥選進Garnger,事實上,大鳥並非一個擅於選秀的總管,已有多次樂透放槍紀錄,撇除2008年大鳥將Jermaine O’Neal送往暴龍得到的包裹中有當年新人Roy Hibbert後來打出一段還算不錯的時期,Bird真正選秀成功的案例大概就是Granger和George,近代的Myles Turner目前看好度也頗高,但還沒到足以定論成敗的階段。

 

當年Bird送走Granger這筆交易,主要是為了得到Evan Turner在季後賽和熱火一拚,但Turner別說季賽僅7.1分比菜鳥時期更低,到了季後賽剩下12.4分鐘出賽得3.3分,嚴重水土不服在溜馬就打了那小半季27場比賽後就走了。
