On the occasion of Kobe Bryant』s final game, here is the NBA』s response to Kobe』s retirement poem. #感謝Kobe# #ThisIsWhyWePlay##KB20# @KobeBryant Dear Kobe, 親愛的科比:
謝謝你。
謝謝你,對籃球的付出、熱愛與執著。
謝謝你,讓我們知道24不僅是你球衣的號碼,更代表著你每天24小時的全力以赴。
謝謝你,從未停止地付出、付出、付出。
謝謝你,不曾放棄。即使你的身體已經在大喊「停下來」,你的意志和內心仍然告訴自己「要堅持」。
你拒絕失敗,你註定成功。
謝謝你,不滅的鬥志。
你冷血絕殺,並對比賽和對手充滿敬意。
你告訴我們世上沒有魔法,只有汗水和努力。
謝謝你,讓我們歡笑和哭泣。讓我們跳起來為你吶喊,也咬緊球衣為你摒住呼吸。
謝謝你,打球不曾忘初心。
謝謝你,用實際行動告訴我們,即使所有人都懷疑你,你要相信自己。
謝謝你20年來傾盡所有,為了我們,為了籃球。
謝謝你,一直深愛著籃球。
此致,
NBA
Dear Kobe,
Thank you.
Thank you for your passion, commitment, and dedication to basketball.
Thank you for showing us that 24 is not just the number on your jersey, but the number of hours in a day you must devote to basketball to be the best.
Thank you for giving and giving and giving.
Thank you for pushing through even when your body was screaming 「no」, but your mind and your heart kept saying 「yes」.
For the games that you refused to lose, and those that you always seemed destined to win.
Thank you for your endless drive.
For competing with ruthless ambition and playing with reverence and respect.
For showing us that there』s no such thing as magic but only hard work.
Thank you for making us smile, laugh, yell, cry, jump out of our seats, and chew on our jerseys.
Thank you for playing the game the way it was meant to be played.
Thank you for teaching us to believe in ourselves even if nobody else does.
For 20 years you gave our game all you had, and we are eternally grateful.
Thank you for loving basketball.
Sincerely,
NBA
