親愛的籃球

 

從那天我穿上父親的長筒襪

想像自己在大西部論壇球館(1967-1999年時湖人的主場)

射進那些夢幻致勝球開始

我就明白一件事:

我已深深愛上你了。

是你,讓一個6歲男孩的湖人夢成真。

我永遠也愛著你

但我不能繼續過份地溺愛

今季,是我為你獻上的最後一季。

我的心臟承受重擊

我的信念抵抗折磨

但我的身體卻告訴我

是時候要說再見。

無論我將來計畫是如何

我永遠也是那個穿上長筒襪的6歲小孩

望著街角的垃圾筒

比賽大鐘還剩5秒,球在我手,5…4…3…2…1…

 

永遠愛你的科比

 

Dear Basketball

 

From the moment
I started rolling my dad’s tube socks
And shooting imaginary
Game-winning shots
In the Great Western Forum
I knew one thing was real:

I fell in love with you.

A love so deep I gave you my all —
From my mind & body
To my spirit & soul.

As a six-year-old boy
Deeply in love with you
I never saw the end of the tunnel.
I only saw myself
Running out of one.

And so I ran.
I ran up and down every court
After every loose ball for you.
You asked for my hustle
I gave you my heart
Because it came with so much more.

I played through the sweat and hurt
Not because challenge called me
But because YOU called me.
I did everything for YOU
Because that’s what you do
When someone makes you feel as
Alive as you’ve made me feel.

You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I’ll always love you for it.
But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye.

And that’s OK.
I’m ready to let you go.
I want you to know now
So we both can savor every moment we have left together.
The good and the bad.
We have given each other
All that we have.

And we both know, no matter what I do next
I’ll always be that kid
With the rolled up socks
Garbage can in the corner
:05 seconds on the clock
Ball in my hands.
5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1

Love you always,
Kobe

 

 


 

 

最近三次元比較忙,是從朋友那裏聽來這個消息的。

震驚、呆了、傷心、心痛、否定、接受。

從上一季開始,Kobe就已經有退休的謠言,我也準備好了。

畢竟他的年齡,也不是年輕小夥子,如果退休我也覺得是正常的。

但是,當這些成為事實,的確會很傷心。

除了說自己的偶像,不能再常常在電視上見到,或者繼續支持奮鬥着的他、

還有,我已經老了,不是字面上的老,而且長大了。

曾經的偶像要退休,這是一種甚麼心情,感覺比起一部漫畫完結更加讓我震驚到這個事實,

就是我已經不是青春的孩子了,但是我現在還是覺得我是的,只是慢慢遠離了。

希望Kobe以後不管做甚麼都好,也有開心幸福,就像在打籃球一樣。

題外話,我想下一個長假飛去LA,看看有沒有可能見一下Kobe。

畢竟喜歡了好久的偶像,不見一面我一定會終身遺憾的吧。

如果可以,真的希望Kobe能夠繼續下去,但我又會心痛他太辛苦。

內心真矛盾……

不管是以前、現在、將來,Kobe只有一個,我也永遠愛你。

ONLY KOBE, KOBE ONLY.

請永遠銘記我們彼此的愛。……直到世界的盡頭。
