I Know Everything - Chapter 488
Chapter 488: Unable to be happy when seeing you!
When training with the gyms’ equipment, it must be done in sets since it was the best way to maximize the exercise without harming the body.
He happened to see Hu Dong after finished his second set of training.
Hu Dong was the head coach of the CBA Zhejiang Team. He used to play in the national team but retired and became a coach.
It was a bit like Big Zhi.
Big Zhi was a step above as he literally became the boss.
Chen Huan greeted him with a smile.
Hu Dong, who just came in with his workout clothes, smiled when he saw Chen Huan before letting out a sigh, “Teacher Chu, I’m unable to be happy when seeing you!”
The group of girls nearby instantly became unhappy.
“Who are you? How can you say something like that?”
“What? Who smashed your window last night? Where did this anger come from?”
“Chen Huan kindly greeted you and you’re still unhappy?”
“Tsk, such an old man, we can see from a glance that he’s not happy that Sister Xiaofeng is so popular!”
“Disgusting! No woman will like an old man like you!”
Hu Dong suffered such a storm of attack that his whole body froze up.
His mouth moved but after seeing the dozens of girls’ fierce stare, he just raised his hands in surrender.
“You guys misunderstood, I didn’t mean that I was actually unhappy so see Teacher Lu!” Hu Dong explained slowly, “It’s related to my work! My biggest regret is not getting the help of Teacher Lu!”
There was nothing else to be done.
If he really wanted to argue back, he would be buried in a moment against those twenty or so girls in a shouting match.
Wanting to use force?
Hitting girls in a gym, didn’t he want his life anymore?
Who knows how many white knights would rush out to beat him up?
So Hu Dong backed down and offered no resistance.
Chen Huan laughed at that and explained it for him, “This is Hu Dong, the head coach for the CBA Zhejiang Basketball Team. He is not happy because I have no way to help our Zhejiang Basketball Team.”
“Why?” A girl with a majestic upper body curves asked.
“I know, I know!” Another girl with short hair said excitedly, “I’m a basketball fan!”
Seeing that she caught Chen Huan’s eyes and saw him nod at her, she continued, “I heard on the internet that the Zhejiang Basketball Team scouted Sister Xiaofeng when he was playing in the high school league and wanted to sign him over. But Sister Xiaofeng said she wanted to study instead so refused.”
“But the Zhejiang Team was quite clever as in basketball, a team is allowed to sign a player for a month or three so if Sister Xiaofeng wanted to study, she could play for them during the summer vacation or even play a few crucial games during winter vacation!”
“Chen Huan didn’t agree and said it would depend on his schedule. Unexpectedly, Chen Huan went to the US to participate in the IMO and attracted the attention of Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson with his basketball talent.”
“Then they chased him to China and begged him to play in the best basketball league in the world. Compared to the weak domestic league, the world’s best basketball league, the NBA was certainly more attractive to Chen Huan!”
“Moreover, a great team like the Lakers even agreed to let Chen Huan play only in the playoffs, something that no other player even got, that is why Chen Huan chose to play in the NBA.”
“If Chen Huan wanted to play in the NBA, he had to sign with the Lakers, but since he’s signed to the Lakers now, how can he play for the Zhejiang Basketball Team?”
She said so much that her mouth became dry.
Chen Huan handed her a bottle of water, “Thank you! It’s exactly as she said.”
Everyone listened to what the girl said before looking at Hu Dong with sympathy and amusement.
“See! Why did you hesitate? Wouldn’t you have gotten Sister Xiaofeng if you took out the benefits?” A woman with a ponytail grumbled.
“Hai, how could I know that Teacher Lu was so good at that time? He was playing in a high school league, what’s the level of the high school league? It’s like kindergarten, there is no reference to judge his skills! If we knew he could play the NBA like a fish in the water, why would we hesitate to pay out?”
Hu Dong replied with a wry smile.
He wasn’t afraid of any shame now since Zhejiang Basketball Team had already been laughed at plenty.
The playoff would be next month and the Zhejiang Team barely got a playoff spot but there was no hope for them to advance into the quarter finals.
Everyone said that if Chen Huan came to play for the months of January and February, the Zhejiang Team would rank much higher and not meet such a powerful opponent in the playoff.
If Chen Huan was willing to play for three or four months, they could basically play for the championship.
After all, nobody doubted that Chen Huan had NBA superstars level of skills after watching his games against the Warriors and the Rockets.
He wasn’t only two or three levels beyond those NBA players that were pushed out of the league and came to China for the money.
The whole team also regretted it, including the general manager Yu Caiming, who tried to invite Chen Huan before, was the one regretting the most.
Yu Caiming regretted the attitude he took. Why wasn’t he more resolute, why didn’t he give NBA level money to Chen Huan and secure it first?
If Chen Huan joined earlier and even if Chen Huan wanted to play the NBA later, they could use the province’s influence to advance the calendar so Chen Huan finished the season at least.
They wouldn’t even delay him joining the Lakers!
The NBA playoff didn’t start until late April and it was mostly in May and June.
“Haha, you were unlucky!” A tall woman laughed, “But it’s alright if it doesn’t work this year, don’t we still have the next year? You’ll have to hurry and catch the opportunity when Sister Xiaofeng finishes playing in the NBA!”
Hu Dong got stunned for a bit but didn’t reply.
They of course considered this.
Chen Huan was only 17 years old and even if it was another 10 years, he would be more than enough to play in the CBA as long as he didn’t have a serious injury.
But when they asked Chen Huan again, Chen Huan already told them that he would only play for a year and would focus on scientific research in the future so there would be no time to participate in sports competition.
The topic was that scientific research was too sacred and entertainment such as competitive sports couldn’t compare to it.
Chen Huan didn’t want to play and he was planning on going to the university in another county so how could they ask for Chen Huan to play for them temporarily again?
All in all, once the opportunity was missed, they would regret it for their life!
