“确保你活在当下,每一天都拼尽全力。我希望我能给人们带来启发,那就是做你自己,保持谦卑,对生命中的幸运心存感激。”

---斯蒂芬·库里

Stephen Cooley was questioned, rejected and even humiliated when compared with the star light of today. Even in the inspirational storytelling machine where the innumerable role players in the NBA backattacked and became stars, there was no such crazy precedent.

聚师网译:相比于现在的星光璀璨,斯蒂芬·库里当年受到的质疑、排斥甚至屈辱,即使是在NBA这个无数角色球员逆袭成为球星的励志故事制造机里,也未曾有过如此疯狂的前例。

The world's contempt for Curie began when he graduated from high school.

That year, Stephen graduated from high school and played well in the high school basketball league. He was confident and expecting to apply for a scholarship to Duke University. However, coach K, who had always been an eyeful Duke coach, thought that Kury was too weak to adapt to the strength of NCAA and refused him directly.

聚师网译:世界对库里的轻视,从他高中毕业就开始了。

那一年,斯蒂芬高中毕业。在高中篮球联赛打出名堂的他,满怀信心和期望去申请名校杜克大学的奖学金,然而一向慧眼识珠的杜克主帅老K教练却认为库里身材太弱小,适应不了NCAA的强度,直接拒绝了他。“确保你活在当下,每一天都拼尽全力。我希望我能给人们带来启发,那就是做你自己,保持谦卑,对生命中的幸运心存感激。”

As a result, Dell Curie took his son to all the major Basketball Schools in the United States. The Atlantic Coast League did not choose Curie. In the end, there were only 1700 students. Davidson College, the smallest in the NCAA league, which had never won the NCAA championship since 1969, saw some unusual characteristics in this child. They offered a scholarship to Curie and enrolled him. Hence, Curie opened the prelude of his college basketball career in the midst of ups and downs.

On March 21, 2008, Stephen Coory, a sophomore at Davidson College, made 10 three-point shots and scored eight in the face of Gonzaga University, the seventh in the country. He scored 40 points and led the team to an easy victory.

It was the first time Davidson College had won the NCAA Championship since 1969.

Two days later, NCAA No. 2 seed Georgetown University was also thrown to the ground. That night, Davidson, who was 17 points behind in the first half, reversed in the second half and directed the show by shooting 25 points in one breath in the second 20 minutes.

聚师网译:2008年的3月21日,戴维森学院大二的斯蒂芬·库里,面对全国第七的冈萨加大学,三分球出手10次,投进了8个,全场得到40分,带领球队轻松获胜。

那是1969年以来,戴维森学院在NCAA锦标赛赢的第一场球。

两天后,NCAA二号种子乔治城大学也被掀翻在地。那天晚上,上半场落后17分的戴维森,下半场完成了逆转,而导演这场大戏的,就是下半场20分钟一口气射下25分的库里。

Finally, in the draft convention, Curie was selected by the Golden State Warriors in seventh place, successfully entered the NBA, and became the hottest star in the league, winning almost all the honors of the league. His story also inspired countless basketball lovers to pursue their "basketball dream".

聚师网译:最终,在选秀大会上,库里以第七顺位被金州勇士队选中,成功进入了NBA,并且成为了联盟最炙手可热的球星,几乎拿遍了联盟所有的荣誉。他的故事也激励了无数热爱篮球的人去追逐自己的“篮球梦”。

聚师网点评:当我们怀抱着梦想不放弃时,我们一定会得到回报,就像斯蒂芬·库里一样。小编在聚师网这个“大家庭”每天都会遇到很多和我一样怀揣着教师梦想来复习备考的同学,他们中不乏已经为梦想做过多次尝试的人,但是依然没有放弃。“念念不忘,必有回响”,永远不要低估一颗有梦想的心!
