今天富比士有評選了30歲以下傑出的30位運動員,

其中第一名為James Harden(這爭議真的蠻大的......)

富比士有兩篇外電, 以下就分兩段來做翻譯

第一篇:

原文出處: http://www.forbes.com/pictures/emdm45ekggd/james-harden-25/

原文:

As a chubby teenager with asthma, James Harden knew his NBA dream was a "long shot." But the future superstar forced himself to get up early before school to jack up shots in the gym and lift weights. 

做為一個患有氣喘的胖呼呼青年, James Harden 知道自己的NBA夢想還很遙遠.

但是這位未來的超級明星強迫自己去學校前早起去練習投籃和舉重(練重量).

 

That work eventually earned Harden a scholarship to Arizona State, where he played for two years before being drafted third overall in 2009 by the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

這些努力最終讓 Harden獲得亞歷桑那州大的獎學金,

在他2009年被Oklahoma 雷霆以第三順位選中之前,他在那打了兩年的球

 

More than five years later, Harden is living out his fantasy, now as the starting shooting guard for the Houston Rockets with an Olympic gold medal to his name.

在這之後的五年, Harden實現了他的夢想, 而現在他是休士頓火箭的先發得分後衛,

並且他還擁有一面奧運金牌

 

"Most of the days I didn’t want to get up, it was too early," he says, looking back at his teenage years when he was unknown and, yes, beardless. "But I had to, and it definitely paid off."

回想起自己默默無名和沒有鬍子的青少年時期時,

他說:"大多數的日子我不想起床, 這太早了, 但是我必須這麼做,而這確實讓我得到了回報"

 

Today, Harden is one of the league's most likeable--and marketable--players, complete with prodigious facial hair and a quirky fashion sense. His on-court talent earned him a five-year, $80 million contract extension in 2012, while his off-court charisma has led to endorsements with Nike, Foot Locker and sports drink company BodyArmor.

憑藉著他驚人的鬍子和古怪的時尚感,

Harden現在是聯盟其中一個最有人緣和最有象徵性的球員之一.

他在球場上的天賦替他在2012年賺得了一份5年8000萬美元的延長合約,

而他球場外的魅力也讓他與Nike,Foot Locker和運動飲料公司BodyArmor簽下代言合約

 

"Sometimes you’re just born and gifted with something," he says of his eccentricities. "The beard, the mohawk, the way I dress, it’s just instilled in me."

他說到他的怪僻 "有時候你天生就會被賦予一些東西, 鬍子,雞冠龐克頭,以及我的穿著方式"

 

第二篇:

原文:

It wasn’t until high school that James Harden realized he had a potential future in the NBA. And that dream eventually became a reality as Harden, who entered Southern California’s Artesia High School as an undersized and asthmatic freshman, evolved into a McDonald All-American.

在Harden進入高中前, 他沒有意識到他在NBA會有一個有潛力的未來.

Harden 以一個瘦小且有氣喘的體型進入南加州的阿迪西亞高中,並入選了全美最佳陣容,

在這之後,這個夢想對於Harden來說最終成真,

 

It wasn’t easy, and it took some help from coach Scott Pera – “I wouldn’t be here where I am if it wasn’t for him,” says Harden now – but by the time he was leaving high school Harden was one of the nation’s most sought-after recruits.
