Farewell, Duke

别了,杜克
BRANDON INGRAM APR 04 2016
布兰登-英格拉姆,2016年4月4日
Today I'm declaring for the NBA draft. So I'm thinking back about my year at Duke and everything that led to where I am today.
今天,我宣布,我将参加2016年的NBA选秀。我不禁回想起在杜克度过的时光和成长中的点点滴滴。
The first thing that jumps into my mind is the day I got a call from Coach K. You don't forget that day. He was coming to Kinston, N.C. To my house. It was my junior year of high school.
我最先想到的是接到老K教练电话的那一天。那一天我永生难忘。他当时正要来北卡州的金斯敦。他打算来我家。那时我高三。
Coach K pulled out his phone. It's an iPhone 6. For some reason, I'd never considered that Coach K even owned a phone. Not to mention an iPhone 6. But anyway, he said:
他掏出他的手机,一部iPhone 6。出于某种原因,我从没想过老K教练会用手机,更别说是iPhone 6了。总之,他说:
"You've got a good Instagram."
“你的Instagram不错啊。”
Huh? I'm thinking it's some kind of joke. Or maybe that I posted something I shouldn't have?
啊?他是在跟我开玩笑吗?还是说,我发了什么不该发的东西?
"Tell me what this means to you," he said, pointing to a quote I had written as a caption for a photo.
“给我讲讲这句话有什么含义吧。”他指着我为一张照片配的文字说。
布兰登-英格拉姆

The quote was, "Stay hungry and stay humble."

那句话是“保持饥饿,保持谦逊。”
Before he left, Coach K said something that I haven't forgotten.
我还记得老K教练临走前对我说的话。
"I can only promise you one thing: The next level will be an adjustment. I can't guarantee that you'll start for me, but you'll have a shot."
“我只能向你承诺一件事:你还需要适应下一个级别的比赛。我无法保证你能打上首发,但你有机会。”
That really made an impact on me.
这番话对我影响深远。
But after he left, I thought more about it, and it started to make sense. I wanted to work for my spot, and he wanted the same thing for me.
但当老K教练走后,我越想越觉得他说得有道理。我要努力去争取自己的位置,他也是这么想的。
Coach K was right about a couple of things. Adjusting to the next level was harder than I expected. The truth is, I really struggled for the first few months of the season.
老K教练对几件事的看法是对的。适应更高级别的比赛比我想象得要难。事实是,在赛季的前几个月里,我真的很挣扎。
He wasn't mad. He was calm, just like he was at my house.
但他并没有生气,而是很平静,就像在我家时那样。
"Where's that hungry kid I recruited? Show me that kid."
“我招来的那个充满饥饿感的孩子哪儿去了?让我见见那个孩子。”
My time is almost over here in Durham. Today as I declare for the NBA Draft, I'm both excited and sad about this moment.
在达勒姆生活的日子马上就要结束了。今天我正式宣布,我将参加2016年的NBA选秀。此刻,我既兴奋又难过。
On one hand, one year at Duke isn't a very long time. I know that. But I've done a lot of growing, and growing up, in that time. I know by leaving I'll miss out on a lot of friendships and opportunities. I'll really miss all the students who showed me so much love. One of my favorite parts of the Duke basketball tradition is the high-five line at the end of home games.
一方面,在杜克大学度过的一年时光非常短暂,我明白。但在这段时间里,我成长了许多,也成熟了许多。我知道,离开意味着我将错过很多友谊、错过很多机会。我会怀念所有曾对我寄予厚爱的同学们。在杜克所有的篮球传统里,我最喜欢的一个环节,就是在主场比赛结束后和你们击掌。
