追梦格林在哈佛大学肯尼迪学院的演讲

2017-11-30 | 责任编辑:admin | 浏览数:366 | 内容来源:本站编辑发布

It's not often that a player will take time out of a game day to go speak, or frankly, do anything besides get ready to play basketball, according to Golden State forward Draymond Green.

据金州前锋追梦-格林说,NBA运动员很少会在比赛日抽出时间去演讲,或者更直白地说,去做准备比赛之外的任何事。
"I think everyone sees you on the basketball court, and they think that you just popped up on the court," Green said. "Game day is an entire day process. From the time you wake up, everything you do should be beneficial to that game."
“我认为当人们看到你在篮球场上时,他们会觉得你就是突然出现在场上而已,”格林说。“比赛日是一个全天的过程。从你醒来的时刻开始,你做的每一件事都得对比赛有所帮助。”
But prior to last week's Celtics-Warriors contest, the NBA All-Star broke his pregame routine to participate in a discussion, "Taking a Knee: Athletes & Activism," at the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics.
然而在上周一勇士对阵凯尔特人的比赛前,这位NBA全明星球员打破了自己的赛前惯例去哈佛大学肯尼迪政治学院参加了一场讨论,“单膝下跪:运动员&行动主义”
"I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to be speaking at Harvard," he told the overflowing crowd of students. "It's like a dream come true."
“我无法拒绝在哈佛大学演讲的机会,”他对满满一群学生说。“这就像是美梦成真一般。”
The hour-long conversation with assistant professor of public policy Leah Wright Rigueur touched on Green's philanthropy efforts off the court, as well as his perspective on many of the social issues the country faces today. Known for the largest donation ($3.1 million) from an athlete to his alma mater, Michigan State, Green is on a mission to spark change where he sees fit.
与公共政策助理教授利亚-莱特-艾菲格尔长达一个小时的对话谈及场外的格林对慈善事业的贡献以及他对当前我们国家面临的许多社会问题的观点。众所周知,格林向他的母校密歇根州立大学捐款310万美元,这是最大的一笔运动员向母校的捐款。格林有种使命感,在他认为合适的地方去发起改变。
Here's what we learned about the 27-year-old from his remarks:
这里就是我们可以从他的言论中所了解到的这位27岁年轻人:
He doesn't think the current racial climate is the worst it's ever been, but rather, the most 'noticeable' it's ever been.
他不认为现在的种族氛围是最糟糕的,然而却是最“值得注意的”。
Green is on the board of the Ross Initiative in Sports and Equality (RISE) — a non-profit organization, founded by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, that is dedicated to improving race relations through the unifying elements of sports. Calling Ross "a mentor," Green said they've frequently spoken about the country's current state and what they can do to make a difference.
格林是非营利组织——罗斯运动与平等倡议(RISE)的董事会成员。这个组织是由NFL球队迈阿密海豚队老板斯蒂芬-罗斯成立的,它致力于通过整合体育的因素来改善种族关系。格林称罗斯为“导师”,他俩频繁地谈论过国家的现状以及他们可以作出的贡献。
"In today's day in age, the climate right now is probably — I wouldn't say it's worse than it's ever been because this country has come a long way — but with social media and all these different tools that we have, it's as noticeable as it's ever been," he said.
“在现在的时代,目前的气氛可能——我不会说它是有史以来最差的因为这个国家已经取得了很大进展——但是在社交媒体以及我们所拥有的各种各样的工具帮助下,它引起了有史以来最大的关注,”他说。
Understanding the platform and voice that professional sports gives athletes, Green is an active member of RISE and "trying to do all the things" that he can to help. But he understands that these efforts are not a one-man show. And changes aren't going to happen overnight.
理解到职业体育提供给运动员的平台以及话语权,格林是RISE的活跃成员并且竭尽全力去做所有他可以提供帮助的事情。但是他明白所有的这些努力不是个人秀,改变并不会发生在一夜之间。
"At the end of the day, none of us can change it," he said. "I think it's important to understand that. I can't change it, you can't change it, someone else can't change it. But together, we can make strides into changing it. If we all just do our part, then we'll help inspire smart change."
"一天结束,我们没有人可以改变它,"他说。“我认为理解这个道理很重要。我不能改变它,你也不能,其他人也不能。但是齐心协力,我们就可以取得长足进步。如果我们都做好自己的部门,那么我们会帮助促进细微的改变。”
He thinks athletes have a responsibility to engage only when they are passionate about the matter at hand.
他认为只有当运动员们对即将到来的事情充满激情他们才有责任参与。
Although Green sees value in the platform leagues provide their athletes, he doesn't think they are obligated to utilize it if their efforts aren't self-inspired or authentic.
虽热格林看到联盟为运动员提供的平台价值,但他不认为他们有责任去利用他,如果他们的贡献并不能激励自我或者并不真实。
"I think so many times people say, 'Oh, you have this platform,' and then they want you to do what they think you should do," he said. "But if you don't believe in it, if it doesn't hit you, then it's not your responsibility."
“我想到人们很多次说,''哦,你有这样的平台,'然后他们希望你做他们认为你应该做的事情,”他说。“但如果你不相信,或者你没有受到触动,那么你就没有责任去做那些事。”
Instead, Green preached that athletes should only engage when "it's genuinely what (they) want to do," for that will make their endeavors more worthwhile and impactful. The two-time NBA champion analogized the situation to going to class.
反而,格林宣称运动员们应该参与进来当“它的确是他们想要做的事情”时,因为这会使他们的努力更具意义更有影响力。这位两届NBA总冠军成员把这种情况类比为上课。
"If you go to class because you want to be there, you're paying much more attention, you're taking notes, you're just much more involved than if someone made you do it. I think it's the same thing when we talk about the responsibility for athletes," he said. "If someone said, 'Hey Draymond, you need to go talk about race.' It's like, 'I don't care about race, what am I going to go talk about it for?' It won't be as heartfelt. If it's not as heartfelt, you don't touch as many people as you possibly could."
"如果你因为想去上课而去上课,你会更加集中注意力,你会做笔记,你会比被迫去上课更加全心投入。我认为这和运动员的责任是一样的,”他说。“如果有人说,'德雷蒙德,你得去说说种族的事情。'它就像是,'我不关心种族问题,为什么要去谈论它呢?'它不是真心实意的。如果你不真心实意,你将不会感动到你原本可能感动到的人。”
For Green, however, race relations is most definitely something a subject he cares about and wants to be involved with.
然而对于格林来说,种族关系很显然是他关心并想参与其中的主题。
"I want to speak out about race, I want to speak out about social injustice, I want to speak out about all those different things, and I'm telling you that because it's coming from my heart. It's touching me," he said.
“我想要为种族问题发声,我想要为社会正义 发声,我想要为所有这些不同的事情发声,我和你讲是因为它发自我的内心。它感动到我,”他说。
He credits his general manager, Bob Myers, for helping shape Golden State's culture.
他归因于他的总经理,鲍勃-迈尔斯,因为他帮助塑造了金州勇士的文化。
According to Green, walking into the Warriors locker room is a unique experience.
据格林说,走进勇士队的更衣室是一种独特的体验。
"It all starts with our general manager, Bob, bringing in the type of people he's brought in," Green said. "He went out and got a coach, (Steve Kerr,) who has a pulse and is not afraid to say what he's thinking. We all have pulses, but I just mean he's not afraid to speak out on things that touch him. And that's the way this team is built."
“所有都是从我们的总经理鲍勃开始的,他带来了这类人,”格林说。“他出去带来一个充满激情,敢于直抒胸臆的教练,斯蒂夫-科尔。我们都有激情,但是我是指他不畏惧说出那些会影响到他的事情。这就是我们团队建起来的方法。”
Calling his teammates "all thoughtful guys," Green said that they are a group of people who try to educate themselves in different areas; thus, conversations will frequently turn to politics, tech, real estate, and other topics outside of basketball. While he understands the sport is their job, he also wants others to know that it doesn't define who they are as people.
格林称他的队友们“全是善于思考的人”,说他们是一群努力在各种领域自我修炼的人;因此,他们之间的谈话会经常转向政治,技术,房地产等其他篮球之外的话题。尽管他知道体育是他的工作,他也希望其他人知道这并不能定义他是什么样的人。
"We're much broader than that. Like I said, we educate ourselves on different topics and if we feel a certain way about certain topics, then we'll use our platform to speak out on those topics," he said. "That's pretty much all that it is. Educating ourselves and using that platform to help educate others."
“我们涉猎很广泛。就像我说的,我们在不同的话题上自学,如果我们觉得自己对某个话题有某种体会,那么我们就会利用我们的平台在这些话题上发表见解。”他说。“差不多就是,自我学习然后利用那个平台来教育他人。”
Green recounted a few experiences with the team off the court that have continued to stick with him. While some are recurring traditions, others are as recent as a couple of weeks ago.
格林叙述了一些在场外和球队一起的、记忆犹新的经历。一些是不断重复的传统,其他的是几个星期前发生的事。

Annual trip to the San Quentin State PrisonEvery yearthe Warriors organization visits a localCalifornia prisonWhile some of the front officecoaching staffand players take the court withthe inmatesGreen said he prefers to play dominoes while he's there.

一年一度的去圣昆丁州立监狱的交流:勇士队每年会造访加利福尼亚当地的一个监狱。格林说一些管理人员、教练组成员和球员和犯人们像在法庭上一样交谈,而当他在那儿的时候他喜欢和他们玩多米诺骨牌游戏。
"I love playing dominoesso I sit down and play the entire day," he explained.
“我喜欢玩多米诺,所以我会坐下来玩上一整天,”他解释说。
But the board games aren't what keep him coming back.
但是这些棋盘游戏并不是促使他一直过来的原因。
"The reason I wanted to go is I think in life we're all just one mistake from being that guy," Green explained. "It's a balance of being thankful for the role of not being that guy and alsowanting to go in there and let them know'HeyI'm no better than you areMaybe you madeone mistake that I didn't make that landed you hereMaybe I made some mistake and didn't getcaughtMaybe someone's wrongfully theremaybe he shouldn't be there.'"
“我想去的原因是我认为生命中我们和那些家伙仅仅只有一个错误的距离,”格林解释道。“我很感恩自己没有成为那样的人。我也想去那儿让他们知道'嗨,我并没有比你好。也许你犯了一个把你带到这儿的错误而我没有犯。也许我犯了一些错误而我没有被抓到。也许某些人是被冤枉的,也许他不应该在那。'我需要在这两者之间找到平衡。”
"I don't know what their situation isbut just letting them know that you're here and I'm herewith youI'm no better than you," he continued.
“我不知道他们的境况如何,仅仅是让他们知道你在这儿,而我到这儿陪陪你。我并没有比你好,”他继续说。
Youth event at their practice facilityAt a recent event at the Warriors practice facilitythe teamwelcomed teenagers from the area along with some police officersFollowing a panel discussionthey broke up into smaller groupswith one or two police officers in every group.
在他们训练馆的青年活动:在勇士队训练馆近期的一项活动,团队欢迎当地的青年和警察官员造访。在一个专题讨论后,他们分成更小的小组,每个小组里有一个或两个警察官员。
"It was interesting to hear a 15-year-old's perspective on what he thought of the police," Green said. "It was interesting for me because I remember being that 15-year-old who thoughtthe same exact thing."
“听听一个15岁青年关于警察的观点是很有趣的,”格林说。“这对我来说很有意思因为我记得当我15岁时也想着同样的事情。”
Green said he felt the conversations illustrated the important of "doing things like that to tryand bridge the gap," which is a double-sided struggleAs he puts itthere needs to be an effort "to help law enforcement officers understand where (people arecoming from as citizens," aswell as an effort from citizens "to understand where they're coming from as law enforcementofficers."
格林说他觉得这样的对话阐明了“做那样的事情来尝试消除鸿沟”的重要性,这需要双方的努力。他认为有必要努力“让执法者理解公民们是从哪里来的”,同时也要公民也要努力“理解执法者们是从哪里来的”。
He thinks that the NBA should consider eliminating the word, "owner."
他认为NBA应该考虑摒弃这个词汇,“拥有者”。
While Green has a close relationship with his team ownersJoseph Lacob and Peter Guberhe isnot a fan of the word that is used to denote their title.
尽管格林和他的球队老板约瑟夫-莱科布以及彼得-古贝尔关系不错,他并不喜欢这个用来显示他们身份的词汇。
"When you look at the word'owner,' it really dates back to slavery," he said. "We just tookthose words and continued to put them to use."
“但你考察这个词汇'拥有者'时,它真的可以追溯到奴隶制时期,”他说。“我们仅仅是继承了那些词语并且继续使用他们。”
"Right and wrong in life usually dates back to God knows when because that was the thoughtthen and we've just stuck with that," Green continued. "It's just a cycleit's an ongoing cycleThat's where our knowledge comes fromand that's where most of our ethics and morals andvalues come frombut very rarely do we take the time to re-think something and say'Huhmaybe that's not the way.' Just because someone was taught that 100 years ago doesn't makethat the right thing today."
“人生中的对或错通常可以追溯到猴年马月。仅仅因为就是那样的想法,我们就是坚持那样。”格林继续说到。“它就是一个循环,一个正在进行的循环。那是我们知识来源的地方,那是我们大部分的伦理道德来源的地方,但是我们很少花时间重新思考一些事并且说'哦,或许并不应该那样。'仅仅是因为某个人在100年前那样教的并不一定正确适用于当下。
Green emphasized that he understands what it means to own equity and a businessbut hewants to others to understand the social implications of the wordtoo.
格林强调他理解拥有股权和产业的意味着什么,但是他想让别人也可以理解这个词汇的社会含义。
"When you say'Here's my owner,' like think about thatDo they really own you as a person?" he said. "If someone says Golden State Warriors and you think Steph Curryand I say'OhyeahI'm the owner,' then do you own Steph? … When we look at businessesnobody eversaid Steve Jobs was the owner of AppleSteve Jobs was the CEO … When we get to sportsit's'Heythere's the owner.' Why is that?"
“当你说,'这是我的拥有者,'他们真的拥有你这个人吗?类似于思考那个例子”他说。“如果某个人谈起金州勇士那么你会想起斯蒂芬-库里,然后我说,'哦,我是球队的拥有者,'那么你拥有斯蒂芬吗?...让我们转向商界,没有人会说史蒂夫-乔布斯是苹果公司的拥有者。史蒂夫-乔布斯是首席执行官...当我们来到体育界,它就是,'嗨,那儿是拥有者。'为什么会那样?”
When Green previously voiced his opinions on the matterhe received heavy backlash fromDallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban for his remarksBut the forward insists his comments werenot meant to be disrespectfulbut rather to start a conversation that he feels needs to behad.
当格林之前在这个事件上发表他的观点时,他遭到了达拉斯小牛队拥有者马克-库班的强烈反对。但是前者坚称他的言论并不是意味着不尊敬,而是想开始一个他认为有必要进行的讨论。
"Mark Cuban will never knowor understandhow it feels for mea young black African-Americanto turn on the TV and see what happened in CharlottesvilleHe'll never have thatfeeling," Green said. "So when I say'Heymaybe we shouldn't use that word,' to be honestIreally don't expect him to understand where I'm coming from because he'll never feel what Ifeel."
“马克-库班将永远不会知道或理解我,一个非洲裔美国黑人青年,打开电视看见发生在夏洛茨维尔的事件的感受。他永远也不会有那样的感受,”格林说。“所以当我说,'嗨,我们也许不应该使用那样的词汇,”说真的,我真的不期待他会理解我从哪里来因为他永远不会感受到我的感受。"
"He may try to understand itbut he'll never understand quite to the degree that I do," hecontinued. "It's not trying to take a shot at the owners of these entitiesbut more so to helpspark change … You can't say I'm dead wrong because you really don't know how I feel to turnon that TV and see a young black man shot by a police officer."
“他也许会尝试的理解它,但是他将不会理解到我所理解的程度,”他接着说。“这并不是想要嘲笑这些产业的拥有者,但是更多的是要帮助引发改变...你不能说我完全错误因为你真的不知道我打开电视看见一个黑人青年被警察枪击的感受。”
He thinks it's funny when people say'Stick to sports.'
他认为人们说'专注于体育'很滑稽。
When asked by a student how he would respond to critics that say he should "stick tosports," Green let out a laugh.
一个学生问他如何应对评论家们说他应该“专注于体育”,格林大笑。
"That's funny," he said. "People say'Oh athletes shouldn't speak politics.' WellI find thatfunny because everyone thinks they can speak basketball."
“那是滑稽的,”他说。“人们说。'运动员不应该讨论政治。'我认为那很滑稽因为所有人都认为他们可以谈论篮球。”
"We spend our entire lives working on our craft and then someone will come on Twitter saying'Draymondyou suck,'Green continued. "It's like'OKyou shot that shot thousands of timesand you know what I should be doing." Everyone feels like they can talk sportsbut then whenit comes to politicseveryone feels like athletes shouldn't talk."
“我们用我们全部的生活致力于提高技术,然后某些人会在推特上说。'德雷蒙德,你混蛋,'”格林继续说道。“这就像是,“你投过成千次篮,你知道我应该怎么做。”所有人都感觉他们可以谈论体育,但是到了政治,所有人又觉得运动员们不应该谈论。”
Green expressed that he feels it's their right "as Americansto speak out on whatever issuesthey want to speak out onWhile their platform may generate more exposure and moreattention surrounding their commentshe feels that athletes speaking out on politics is "nodifferent than any other American saying'Oh manwhy did such-and-such have six turnoverslast night?'"
格林表示他认为“美国人”有权利在他们想要谈论的任何话题上发声。尽管他们的平台或许会使他们的言论获得更多的曝光和关注,他认为远动员们谈论政治“和任何其他美国人说,'天啊,为什么昨晚会有这么这么多的6个失误?',没有区别。”
"As an Americanwe're all affected by politicsone way or another," Green said. "I don't see aproblem with athletes speaking out on politics."
“作为美国人,我们都通过一种或另一种方式受政治影响,”格林说。“我没有发现运动员谈论政治有什么问题。”
If one were to engage in such conversationshoweverthe two-time NBA championencourages seeking out the insights from those who understand politics well.
如果即将要参加这样的讨论,然而,这位两次NBA冠军成员鼓励从哪些十分理解政治的人身上获得观点。
"Even if I had a tremendous feel for politicsthere's someone who knows more than me," hesaid. "So why not consult with that person and see what their thoughts areThey may changeyour view a little bit or they may make your view a little bit stronger than it was before."
“即使我对政治有许许多多的感受,总有人比我懂得更多,”他说。“所以为什么不咨询那样的人并看看他们是怎么想的?他们也许会稍微改变你的观点或者他们会让你的观点比以前强大一点。”
