「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

夢幻一隊

夢幻一隊




2012 倫敦奧運,美國派出的籃球《夢幻隊》決選結果已經出爐了:


【維基百科】 2012 Olympics (London)

The US team clinched a berth in the 2012 Olympics in London by winning the 2010 World Championship. The 2012 teams consists of returning 2008 Olympic gold medal winners small forwards LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, point guards Chris Paul and Deron Williams, and shooting guard Kobe Bryant.

It also includes 2010 World Championship winners including small forward Kevin Durant, power forward Kevin Love, center Tyson Chandler, and point guard Russell Westbrook.

The final three roster spots were claimed by power forward Blake Griffin, small forward Andre Iguodala, and shooting guard James Harden; they beat out shooting guard Eric Gordon, small forward Rudy Gay and rookie center Anthony Davis, the number one overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft (whom sustained an ankle injury and did not participate in the final scrimmages). Forward Lamar Odom dropped out of consideration in July before the start of training camp.

Some of the initial 20 finalists, which were announced in January 2012, withdrew due to injury including power forwards Chris Bosh (abdomen) and LaMarcus Aldridge, point guards Derrick Rose (ACL) and Chauncey Billups, shooting guard Dwyane Wade (knee), and center Dwight Howard (back surgery). Harden and Davis were added as replacements. Center Andrew Bynum declined an invitation to be added as a finalist.

2008年北京奧運,美國隊得到了冠軍,四年之後,美國隊如無意外,都應該穩得冠軍。可以威脅到美國隊的西班牙,阿根廷,克羅地亞等等。但誰能忘記 。。。。。


1992年的奧運是美國首次可以派遣 NBA 的職業球星上陣,美國組織了前所未有強大實力的男子隊陣容,而且是因為第一次 NBA職業球員可以參加奧運,大部份球星都樂於參與。


計有:Michael Jordan 老飛俠米高佐敦, Scottie Pippen 佐敦的最佳拍檔 帕賓, John Stockton 神級控球後衛 史托頓, Karl Malone 史托頓的最佳拍檔 卡爾馬龍, Magic Johnson 魔術手 莊遜, Larry Bird 小鳥 布特, Patrick Ewing 硬漢 艾榮, Chris Mullin 穆年, David Robinson 上將 羅賓遜, Charles Barkley 惡人 巴克利, Clyde Drexler 德士拿, and the sole amatuer player Christian Laettner from DUKE University 的 李奕拿。而總教練 head coach 是 Chuck Daly 戴利。


【NBA official Site】Celebration of the 20th anniversary of 1992's USA Basketball team (aka The Dream Team), which is considered one of the greatest sports teams ever assembled, the NBA put together a documentary telling the story.

Titled "The Dream Team," the special documentary for NBA TV tells the iconic team's story from inception to end. From when and how the team was selected, to the controversy over the players selected and those who weren't, to the rivalry amongst each other, to the impact the unit made on the sport around the world.

The players on the team included: Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, and the sole amatuer player Christian Laettner (of Duke University).

The film premiered on Wednesday (June 13), with encore airings on NBA TV throughout the week. But, if you can't wait, watch the full doc here. For NBA TV airings or more info, visit NBA.com/NBATV.


因為不是 Youtube 沒法 embedded 到此,若要看就請點擊 HERE,看看幾十分鐘的紀錄片。是由因為輸了給蘇俄後講起,美國隊重組由選NBA球員開始,到決選最後出發 12人。由集訓操練、打熱身賽、到飛去西班牙巴塞隆拿準備比賽。

整個賽事 tournament 打足五場分組賽,和三場淘汰賽,連贏八場。又有 惡人巴克利 因不忿被侵犯還手打肘,更有出神入化的射球和入樽,眼花繚亂好好好看。

Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin, who were members of the 1984 Olympic team, became the first players to win two gold medals in men's basketball.

Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, who played for the Chicago Bulls, became the first players to win both NBA championship and Olympic Gold medal in the same year.



今屆 勒邦占士 是唯一 NBA總冠軍 熱火,支撐到最後都肯打 Olympic,Bosh 和 Wade 俱稱傷退隊,做成 James 是唯一可以同年獲得 NBA 總冠軍,和應該十拿九穩的 Olympic Basketball men's championship 的球員矣! 比較意外是 Kobe,他是全隊最老的 33歲,還肯落場玩玩!
