Several years ago, I had the great honor of working the first-ever Kobe Bryant Nike Skills Academy. Nike invited the top 20 high school shooting guards and the top 10 college shooting guards in the country to this camp with Kobe. And it's kinda funny now that I look back on it—how many of those players are now household names in the NBA. However, at that time, the least recognized player there was Stephen Curry, but I knew immediately that he was the most impressive, and that thinking long term, he was going to be a future NBA superstar. Here's how I knew that: it was all because of his work habits.
幾年前，我有幸能舉辦首屆的 Kobe Bryant 籃球技術學院。Nike 邀請國內前二十強高中得分後衛，也邀請國內前十強大學得分後衛來和 Kobe 一起參加這個營隊。現在回頭看來有點有趣－－那些球員現在有多少人是 NBA 家喻戶曉的名字了。不過，在那時候，最讓人沒有印象的球員就是 Stephen Curry，但我很快就知道他是最令人欽佩的，而且就長遠來看，他將會成為一位未來 NBA 超級明星。我是這樣知道的：一切都是因為他的工作習慣。
Now those skills academies—we would have two workouts a day for three straight days. Thirty minutes before every single workout, most players were still in their flip-flops and had on their headphones, and Stephen Curry had already started doing some form shooting. He'd already started taking game shots from game spots in game situations. By the time the workout officially started, he had probably already made 100 to 150 shots—almost in a full sweat.
那些技術學院－－我們會連續三天有一天兩次的練習。在每次練習的三十分鐘前，大部分的球員都還穿著他們的夾腳拖還有戴著他們的耳機，但 Stephen Curry 早就開始練投了。他已經開始就賽中可能的投球位置，模擬比賽狀況進行練投。到練習正式開始時，他可能已經投進 100 到 150 球了－－幾乎全身汗流浹背。
When the workout actually started, he was meticulous with everything that he did. He made sure that he had perfect footwork, he made sure that he had perfect shooting form. If he did anything and it wasn't perfect, he did it all over again. And he didn't need a coach to tell him. He just did it. And then probably the most impressive thing that he did, was as soon as every workout was over, he would not leave the court until he swished five free throws in a row. You know how hard that is? But that's the level of excellence that he holds himself to.
And the moral of that story is that success is not an accident; success is actually a choice. And Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters on the planet today, because he has made the choice to create great habits. And my question to you is, Are the habits that you have today on par with the dreams that you have for tomorrow? That's something that you need to ask yourself every single day, because whatever you do on a regular basis today will determine where you will be tomorrow.
而那故事的寓意是，成功不是個意外；成功其實是一個選擇。而 Stephen Curry 是如今全世界最出色的射手之一，因為他做出養成好習慣的選擇。而我給你的問題是，你今天所有的習慣能成就你對明天所抱的夢想嗎？那是件你每天都必須要問自己的事，因為不論你今天照慣例做了什麼事情，將會決定你明天所在的位置。
Curry fires, for three. Just impossible to stop him. Curry, unbelievable!
Curry launches a three. He got it!
Offensive rebound. Curry again. And Curry hits a three!
進攻籃板。Curry 又來一次。Curry 投進一顆三分球!
We've just never seen somebody who can take threes off the dribble at this kind of volume. You know, I've said it for years. He's a glitch, I mean, he just doesn't exist. And he makes you change everything you do on defense.
Curry slips the defense, behind the back! Fires a three! Oh! He puts it in! For three! He turned! He knew it was in! He turned and ran back before the ball ever got there!
When Curry gets hot, there's just nothing like it. I've been in two arenas now where it happened...I can't even describe it.
I don't even know how to describe what I watched tonight. I have never seen a player with this skill set.
He'll T-up the three for the record. He got it! All-time NBA record 273 made three-point shots for the marksman Stephen Curry.
他會投出破紀錄的三分球。他投進了! 神射手 Stephen Curry，投進 273 顆三分球的 NBA 歷史紀錄。
And the moral of that story is that success is not an accident; success is actually a choice. And Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters on the planet today, because he has made the choice to create great habits. And my question to you is, Are the habits that you have today on par with the dreams that you have for tomorrow?

Long rebound. Steph, no timeout exists. And five, Curry, for the lead. Yeah!
Curry, electrifying this crowd!
