I Know Everything - Chapter 420
Chapter 420: Ferocious Veteran.
“By receiving the support of the middle aged group of people, the host turned the situation around and slapped the faces of those trashes, the system will express its satisfaction.”
“The system is very happy with this surprising success and specially rewards the host with a song recall.”
“Don’t think it’s not a lot, if you continue to perceive and create more miracles to spread your reputation, there will be better rewards!”
The sound resounded in Chen Huan’s ears and he was very happy to hear that.
The Good Lord was getting more and more sensible now.
Even if there was no mission released, it would give out rewards if enough popularity was accumulated.
Originally after getting ‘Rain Butterfly’, Chen Huan only had 2 songs recalled in his pocket and now had one more song recall so he felt more relaxed with more foods in his hands.
He basically had to give Han Dong’er songs after the Spring Festival.
She had found a lot of songs recently by either seeking the writers directly or taking songs he fancied, she was very busy.
Han Dong’er was very busy and Chen Huan even had to thicken his face to go to her villa at the foot of the mountain to eat a few meals and chat with her parents so the two elderly could be entertained.
She seemed to not be used to joking around in her own home but she was still happy when she saw the three people laughing and smiling.
Otherwise she probably wouldn’t answer the call even if Chen Huan was calling her.
If it was possible, Chen Huan planned on giving 5 songs to her.
Because this album was the most important weapon for Han Dong’er to reach the empress throne after ‘Red Bean’.
If the sales of this album was even better than ‘Red Beans’, Han Dong’er would become the third empress and surpass Yang Dan and Liu Fuer who were in front of her in one fell swoop.
So there was no such thing as too many good songs for this album.
Of course, Chen Huan wasn’t worried about it either.
There were many missions recently and the rewards were also very generous.
There were many things that could be obtained during December such as ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’, which would be broadcasted in a few days, and Jian Peng’s attack on Lightning Boys.
Apart from the rewards he could get shortly, there were also the long-term missions.
It could be said that a miracle was happening.
It was in the distant country of the United States.
The NBA had now passed the preliminary stage and was gradually entering a more ferocious contest stage.
Over the years, the West had always been stronger than the East.
There were many strong teams in the West such as Lakers, Mavericks, Spurs, Thunder, Rockets and so on.
Although the Miami Heat won two championships in a row with their superteam, the West was still generally stronger.
It was no longer like in the 70s-90s were the Celtics and Bulls took their turn to face the Lakers.
Before the start of the season, it was the previous champions Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma Thunder that received the most attention.
Especially the Golden State Warriors as Curry was in a good form and in his prime. They were favorite to make a two peat.
But then the Warriors got trashed by the Lakers during the pre-season.
Kobe, Iverson and Chen Huan formed the triangle and the Warriors couldn’t handle it.
Everyone thought at first it was just the pre-season and the Warriors didn’t take it seriously.
One of them was just 17 years old and claimed that he would only play in the playoffs but the Lakers still gave him a 1 million dollars guarantee contract.
One was 37 years old that was injured for half a season the past two seasons and it seemed that it would be only a matter of time before he got injured again.
The other one was even more exaggerated as he was a 40 years old that was retired for two years but he came back to play this year and the Lakers even gave him an MLE!
With the old and feeble big three, could they compare to the Warriors?
However, the Lakers beat the Mavericks in the opening game.
What the f̲u̲c̲k̲!?
No matter what, the Mavericks were still the 10-11 season champion!
It had been 4 years since then but their main team was still there and the 38 years old Nowitzky was still the king of fade away. There were still Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews as helpers so it was much better than the ragtag Lakers.
But the result was completely different.
Iverson scored at will with his 47 points while Kobe only had 32 points but he was like a mad dog as he completely shut down Nowitzki as the fade away king only got 17 points.
Fade away king scoring that much was already hard.
Iverson’s breakthrough made Deron Williams foul out with his 6 fouls.
The 22-year-old shooting guard Justin Anderson suddenly started to doubt life due to Iverson and he lost the ball 17 times.
Iverson also considered his current body-state and didn’t do his iconic crossovers otherwise Justin Anderson’s legs would be broken.
It was the case but Justin still left the court with a bitter expression as he got completely crushed.
Everyone was surprised by this game and Kobe and Iverson outstanding performance.
But then they teamed up and scored 85 points together in the second game and won it 113:95 against the Hawks, which made the people more wary of them.
The third game was even more exaggerated as the Lakers faced the Spurs, known as the best defensive team, and the results was 92:66 with Lakers on Top and Spurs on both.
Kobe got his third triple-double in a row and Iverson sent two players on the Spurs out due to foul troubles.
No one doubted their capability anymore.
Every team treated the Lakers as a strong playoff team now.
But even so, it didn’t stop the Lakers momentum.
They played 13 games so far and won 12 of them. They only lost a game to the Thunder during a back to back games and thus ranking first in the league!
The two 40 years old players gave that kind of performance?
Kobe and Iverson played like they were crazy as they played more than 35 minutes each game and averaged more than 70 points together each game!
They were like on f̲u̲c̲k̲i̲n̲g̲ s̲t̲e̲r̲o̲i̲d̲!
But they got checked after every game and proved that they were innocent.
The people didn’t even know what to say after that.
But the NBA was also a place where people acknowledged miracles happened.
Iverson and Kobe took turns occupying the best players of the week in Western Conference for 4 weeks straight. They didn’t only got recognized by the officials but the NBA market also boomed again.
All the Lakers were packed.
Kobe and Iverson won the admiration of the people no matter where they went.
The amount of money they received from sponsors was jaw dropping.
But the two didn’t care about that except training and breathing basketball, they lived like monks, even the party beast Iverson.
“Chen Huan, prepare yourself for your first championship tour!”
This was what Iverson said in excitement when he called.
The superstars who had never won the championship once never felt the trophy as close as this.
As long as Kobe and he was healthy this season and adding Chen Huan’s better athletics who also played similarly to him and also had a three point shot, was there any problem to win the championship?
Chen Huan also had high expectations for his playoff journey.
An NBA championship would bring him many rewards!
According to the Good Lord’s personally, the more people he attracted and the more popularity he gained, the greater the rewards he would receive.
