Press conference

(About the reason to retire in 1998 ) Even when I retired the last time, I wasn’t, I was, I didn’t say I was ready to quit the game. I didn’t want to go through the whole rebuilding process at that time. You know I think everybody asked me well if 12)Phil would have stayed there and the team would have stayed intact I would have still been playing.

(About 13)Barkley’s decision) No, I don’t see where he has a point. I love Charles Barkley, you guys know that. You guys love him because he can give you quick comments and 14)wit and whatever. You know, I never utilize his evaluations for what I try to do as a basketball player. I tried to intrigue him by seeing if he can push himself to get to a challenge of possibly coming back and playing and Charles chose it from his own perspective and his motivation that he couldn’t.

(About the reason to come back)Ah, when I step on the basketball court, you know, I’m going to consider myself as trying to be the best basketball player I can be. You know, in comparisons to others, I think, that’s going to be something that’s evaluated over time. I’m going to have total confidence once I step on the basketball court that I can do all the things that I’m capable of doing other than 15)take off from the free throw line other than the physical capabilities that I probably can’t do or wouldn’t want to do.

(About the aim to play) Physically, I know that I’m not 25 years old. I’m not, I’m, not, stepping up here and saying that I will be 25 years old when I step on that court but I feel like I can play the game of basketball at the highest level, ah, and that’s what I’m aiming to do.

(About the possible failure)You know, I’m not expecting myself to come out and score 40 or 50 16)points the first night. You know I’m just going to try to work my way back into the intensity of the game. I’m not afraid to take on a challenge. I’m not afraid to take a step. And if I fall, I fall. I pick myself up and move on. If we all can learn something in life it’s that don’t be afraid to take on something that you believe you’re capable of achieving. You know, if my kids get anything from this whole thing it’s if you have a vision about something go out and do it. Don’t let anyone determine what your beliefs may be. If you fail, Ok, I tried. You never know if I would fail or if I, you can’t fail unless you tried.

(About his 17)legacy) You know, so I’m not looking at this legacy thing as much as you guys may be looking at it. I’m not here to try to redefine the game of basketball. Everything that worked for me may not work for them. I’m just going to try to give them the best angle to make them better basketball players and hopefully that’s going to make us a better team. And that I can pass that on to other players in the league and make the game better.

(About his help on the victims of the 9.11 attack)  I know my place. I understand that I can help and this is my way of helping and hopefully it can help.CE

新闻发布会

(关于1998年退役的原因)

即使当我上次退役时,我没有说我会永久地退出。我只是不想在那个时候经历球队的重建工程。如果菲尔留在芝加哥,球队没有大的变动,也许我会一直打到现在。

(关于巴克利的决定)不,我不认为他有道理。我喜欢查尔斯·巴克利,这个你们都知道。你们喜欢他,因为他能很快地提供给你们评论和幽默。你知道,我从来不会以他的评价来判断自己作为一位篮球运动员所要做的事情。我试着挑战他,看他是否能接受挑战,重披战袍。从自己的立场和兴趣出发,查尔斯选择了不复出。

(关于复出的原因) 嗯,当我踏上篮球场时,你知道,我会尽可能地使自己达到到最佳水平。你知道,和其他人比起来,我认为,时间将会检验。一旦我踏上篮球场,我会拥有十足的信心,我能做到我能做到的一切,除了从罚球线起跳扣篮,以及其它我身体素质不允许我做到的,或者我自己不想去做的动作。

(关于打球的目标) 从身体上来讲,我知道我不是25岁的人了。我也不会说当我走上赛场时,我还能像25岁时那样打球,但我感觉仍然能够达到篮球比赛的最高境界。这是我的目标。

(关于可能的失败) 你知道,我不会指望自己在复出的第一夜就拿下40分甚至50分,我必须按部就班地调整状态,适应竞争的激烈程度。我并不害怕接受挑战,我并不害怕迈出这一步。如果我失败了,就失败了。我会重新站起来,继续前进。如果我们都能从生活中学到一些东西,那就是不要害怕去选择你认为你能做到的事情。你知道,如果我的小孩能, 如果你对某样东西有感觉,放手一试。不要让任何人决定你该做什么。如果你失败了,好啊,你试过了。如果你不尝试的话你永远不会知道是否会输。

(关于他的辉煌历史)你知道,我并没有像你们认为的那样重视我的历史。我并不是来重新定义篮球运动的。所有对我管用的东西不一定就对他们管用。我只是想尽量给他们提供如何成为一个篮球运动员的视角,希望这能够使我们(奇才队)成为一支更好的球队。我还能把(这种视角)传授给联盟中的其他球员并且使整个(NBA)比赛变得更好。

(关于对9.11事件中的遇难者的帮助)我知道我所处的位置。我理解我在什么地方能帮上忙,这是我帮忙方式,希望这能对(他们)有所帮助。CE
