The decorated NBA champion and MVP already had two failed retirements, so what was one more return to the court? Sharing a stage with former Dream Team teammates David Robinson and John Stockton, Jordan was all out of comebacks.

Air Jordan has a new name: Hall of Famer.

「我退休啦,我又復出啦,我又退休啦,我又復出啦,我再退休,怎麼樣,打我啊?」這就是曾經說過99.99%不會復出的雜碎佐惇!

是什麼能讓雜碎再回到球場呢?那就是和前美國男籃夢幻隊友老史以及海軍上將一起接受名人堂表揚...

Jordan was elected to the class of 2009 on Monday with Robinson and Stockton. Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and Rutgers women's coach C. Vivian Stringer are also part of a class announced in Detroit, site of the men's Final Four.

佐惇跟隨著老史John Stockton、爵士教皇Jerry Sloan、海軍上將David Robinson以及Rugtgers大學女教練Vivian Stringer的腳步,入選2009名人堂.

Induction is Sept. 10-12 in Springfield, Mass., home of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

"I don't like being up here for the Hall of Fame because at that time your basketball career is completely over," Jordan said. "I was hoping this day would be 20 more years, or actually go in when I'm dead and gone."

雜碎表示:「我還真希望20年後甚至我掛點後才把我選進去,這樣我才能再任意復出啊!」
(心中暗忖:我的
贍養費啊~啊~啊~)

Jordan's Hall of Fame selection was a slam dunk after he retired as perhaps the greatest player in history. And he gave much of the credit Monday to his college coach.

"There's no way you guys would have got a chance to see Michael Jordan play without Dean Smith," he said.

His soaring dunks, Nike commercials and "Air Jordan" nickname helped stamp him as one the most recognizable athletes around the world. He finished a 15-year career with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards with 32,292 points -- the third-highest total in league history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. His final career average of 30.12 goes down as the best, just ahead of Wilt Chamberlain's 30.07. 

The five-time NBA MVP won six championships with the Bulls and another in college with North Carolina. The Tar Heels play Michigan State in the national championship game Monday night.

當年他和NIKE都大削了一筆,豐功偉業,不再贅述...

Jordan will root on the Tar Heels, but had no plans to give them a pep talk.

Tar Heels coach Roy Williams was an assistant with Carolina on that 1982 championship team and was at Monday's induction, where Ty Lawson won the Bob Cousy award as the nation's top point guard.

Jordan retired twice during his career. He first came back to the Bulls in 1994 and won three more championships before retiring again in 1998, then had an ill-fated two-year stint with the Washington Wizards before calling it quits for good in 2003. He's now managing partner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

佐惇第一次復出多撈了三個冠軍戒指,第二次復出在巫師隊則是一場厄運。現在他則入主阿貓隊管理階層,想挑戰眼睛有蛤仔的挑人眼光和如何經營讓一個球隊持續沈淪

On Monday, he joked that when he saw Stockton and Robinson he was ready to put his shorts on again.

"I always want to be able to have you thinking I can always go back and play the game of basketball and put your shorts on," Jordan said. "Hall of Fame to me is like, OK, it's over and done with."

佐惇:「我一直沒收起我的球褲,想著或許我哪一天還能復出,並且就像當年撫平羅素球褲上的皺折一般讓他倒地,並且投進致命一擊!但是名人堂等於扼殺了我這個夢想吶!」

以上為Chicago Bullshit M.Jordan 芝加哥么午隊雜碎佐惇的光榮事蹟

 

1998 NBA Finals,最後么午87,爵士86,公理正義,請各位自己看看這兩球的判決
(不要再拿「勸大家不要看NBA了~」還有「這都是Stern的陰謀」來說了...)

 

 

Jordan won two of his titles in the 1990s against Sloan, Stockton and the Jazz. Stockton spent his entire career with Utah and finished with 19,711 points, and holds NBA records 15,806 assists and 3,265 steals. He also holds NBA records for most assists in a season (1,164 in 1990-91) and highest assist average in a season (14.5 in 1989-90).

雜碎在90年代從萬惡的爵士以及老史和教皇頭上硬是搶走兩次冠軍。老史則整個NBA生涯都待在Utah Jazz,拿下19711分,並且高懸全NBA至今難以突破的15806助攻和3265抄截!這前無古人,後難有來者的紀錄還有單季最多助攻1164次(90~91球季),以及單季平均助攻最高14.5次(89~90)。 (Chris Paul 3@@?? 想太多了吧...)

"Growing up I never thought about the Hall of Fame," Stockton said. "All I wanted was a chance to go to college."

老史表示:「我轉大人時從沒想過名人堂,這啥?可以吃嗎@@??我只想能申請到大學。」

Utah took Stockton in the first round of the 1984 draft, using the No. 16 pick on a relatively unknown player from Gonzaga who became one of the top point guards.

"I haven't given this much thought over the course of a lifetime," he said. "I'm not sure it quite strikes home until you're standing here."

老史在1984年以第1輪16順位以無名小卒控衛身份被猶他選入(當年還被噓,Boo~很大,Boo不用錢,請看以下短片),展開了妖魔化和下三路手法的驚奇NBA之旅。老史說:「我對這生涯旅程沒有想太多,但直到站在這裡,才有種莫名的感動!」

 

 

 

 

  

Robinson, who earned the nickname "The Admiral" from his college career at Navy, joined Stockton and Jordan as members of the NBA's 50th anniversary team.

大羅之所以叫海軍上將,是因為他大學讀的是海軍官校,也和老史以及雜碎同是NBA50大球星。

He had a stellar 14-year career with the San Antonio Spurs that included two NBA championships, an MVP season, a rookie of the year award, 10 All-Star selections, a scoring title and two Olympic gold medals. Unlike Jordan's inability to stay home after his final shot in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, Robinson was content to retire after winning a second title with the Spurs in 2003.

海軍上將功勳彪炳!

"If I had to pick one night in my career, it would probably be walking off the court as a champion and knowing that was going to be my last memory of basketball," Robinson said.

大羅表示:「硬要我選個值得紀念的一天,那就我的最後一夜吧!我可以帶著總冠軍盃和冠軍戒指得到全場祝福瀟灑離開球場,含笑引退!曾經搶籃板時無意把我打到腦震盪住院的好朋友鐵拐郵差則再怎麼轉隊也只能哭哭成為戒靈了...科科~

 


    

Sloan, who did not attend the ceremony, is the longest tenured head coach in major league sports with a single franchise. Sloan is the only NBA coach to win more than 1,000 games with a single team and has the Jazz in seventh place in the Western Conference going into Monday night's games.

江湖盛傳教皇是從公車上隨便抓五個人就能打NBA的傳奇教練,但得罪了教皇,就準備去異次元空間哭哭吧!能在同一球隊連續執教長達20年,也是北美職業運動難以突破的紀錄。他也是NBA唯一的教練帶領同一隻球隊拿下超過1000勝。在星期一的比賽,爵士也勝出取得季後賽第七種子。(但是我寫的時候,嫩爵都敗光光了,掉到老八,還傷了小胖,palyoffs的未來本來就不期不待>"<) 教皇很有個性的,他不想參加這種名人堂儀式,所以缺席了。

He was missed by Stockton.

"He's not only a coach and a mentor, but a friend," Stockton said. "I enjoy him very much. The honor to share it with him, terrific."

老史稱讚著這個令他懷念的老番顛:「他不只是一個公車教練,也是一個良師益友!我想和他一起分享這份可以很搖擺的榮耀!」 (好在當年我表現都很合他意,據說現在年輕的嫩爵每天投那什麼鬼命中率,賽後都被教皇派去拖牽引機...)

 


Stringer has led three separate schools to the Final Four in her 38-year career and has an 825-280 mark spanning four decades. She trails only Pat Summitt and Jody Conradt on the career wins list, and guided Rutgers to its fifth straight regional semifinals trip this season.

"My knees are weak, and to think I would be standing here with these great, great, men of basketball," Stringer said. "It's not ever about me. It's about the players who all make it happen."

「我腿快要ㄘㄨㄚˋ到站不住了,我竟然能和這些世界上最偉大的籃球員以及雜碎一起在這領獎!」Stringer是率領眾多學校籃球隊拿下輝煌戰績的女教頭。

Stringer got her start in 1973 at Cheyney State, where Hall of Famer John Chaney was the men's coach, and took the school to the Final Four in 1982. She also took Iowa to the Final Four, the only women's coach to take three teams there.

"I am very happy and elated that she was selected to the Hall of Fame this year," Chaney said. "I would think not many, if any, Division II school has its former men's and women's coaches in the Hall of Fame."

某間學校的男女教練都進入了籃球名人堂,好像很high....
