A week before the rest of Steph Curry’s Team USA teammates arrived in New York for a week of practices and international exhibitions, the Golden State Warriors guard was already practicing his shooting form against a quartet of absolute amateurs.
在其他美國隊的隊員到紐約的前一周，金洲勇士隊的後衛 --- Stephen Curry早就已經和其他業餘的球員開始做練習了。
The NBA All-Star showed off his three-point skills in a contest against four journalists (this one included) as part of a promotional event for Degree deodorant (Spoiler: He won) after spending a half-hour giving shooting tips to the group (Spoiler: It didn’t work).
這位NBA的明星對四個記者展現出他投射三分球的能力，並且給予他們大約半小時的投籃指導，作為他為Degree deodorant 除臭劑的推廣活動。
In addition to sharing some pointers on his approach – he focuses on the middle three hooks of the hoop in his sight line, regardless of where he’s positioned on the court – he also answered a series of rapid-fire questions as seen in the video above.
But given his new role as deodorant pitchman and the fact that a recent ESPN The Magazine survey indicated that during a game, we asked Curry if maybe it might be a wise strategy for someone he’s guarding to smell a little less fresh on the court.
ESPN Magazine 調查顯示大約有百分之21的職業運動員抱怨說他們的對手的體臭，會影響他們在比賽中的表現，我們詢問了最近剛成為除臭劑代言人的Stephen Curry，在他的對手對上他時，一個較不好聞的體臭，是否可以作為一個較聰明的策略。
“I’d say it would make me more frustrated if I was playing against a guy with bad B.O. and you might want to go at him even more,” Curry replied. “But if a guy smells good, it might lull you into some comfort kind of deal. If you smell good they kind of relax a little bit so you might have a little bit of an advantage.”
1. amateur ；業餘從事者，通常指運動、藝術、科學上。
2. B.O. = Body Odour ；體臭
3. lull into ； 使...放鬆
