029 The Art of War in Basketball

Y: Patrick, 你也会看书啊?What are you reading?

P: Always funny, Yang Chen. I'm trying to read the Art of War. I am trying to understand it.

Y: The Art of War, 孙子兵法? Why?

P: You know, Yang Chen, you can apply the Art of War to a lot of things. Some people use the Art of War strategy when they play sports.

Y 把孙子兵法用在体育策略上? Hey, do a lot of people in America know about 孙子兵法?

P Not everyone. They said that the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, has a copy of The Art of War and he teaches his players some of its strategies. Yang Chen, you know who the Lakers are, right?

Y: Of course, I know the Lakers,湖人队。

P: I am sorry, so as I was saying, Yang Chen, the head coach of the Lakers, he applies The Art of War to basketball.

Y: Patrick, 我也懂孙子兵法,do you think I should apply for a coaching job in the NBA?

P: OK, first of all, I thought you didn't know anything about baseball. Now it looks like you don't know much about basketball either.

Y: Hey, according to孙子兵法...

P: Oh, don't underestimate Yang Chen.

Y: That's right.

P: How about we play some basketball to see if the Art of War really works in a basketball game?

Y: OK. 3 pointers! 进球! 三分球!

P I see you are indeed a master ...

Y: Of what..?

P: You are the master in the art of cheating.
