I Know Everything - Chapter 530
Chapter 530: Gorgeous scenery.
In the face of the criticism from outside, was the Lakers really just giving up like that?
Only the Lakers themselves knew that those people would be disappointed this time.
Especially the Portland Trail Blazers, as their attitude seemed very relaxed and felt that the first round was already in the bag and that the real fight began at the Western Conference Finals.
The truth was nobody in the Lakers was worried about the Blazers.
The reason for that big defeat in their last regular season game was that they had to train with Chen Huan just the day before and they all got sonned one by one.
After that training, they barely had any energy the next day so how could they give any effort in that game?
They looked at the omnipotent Chen Huan dribble past them, shoot the ball, pass around the ball … they seemed to recall the super Kobe Bryant from ten years ago.
That wasn’t right.
He was better than Kobe!
Kobe didn’t have such a powerful physical ability.
The Lakers once tried to have Clarkson and Hibbert try to stop Chen Huan but he still pushed forward completely unstoppable!
They gave their all but it was like tussling against a cow and they couldn’t stay firm at all.
They didn’t have to worry about the Blazers with Kobe and Iverson added.
After all, the experience of the veteran was the most important entering the playoffs.
Among the Blazers, the oldest player was Gerald Henderson who was 28 years old but he was a second-rate player without any playoff experience at all so how could he guide his team?
There was no need to talk about those two superstars.
They would be sonned when they were going to meet real superstars.
Let alone against Chen Huan.
In the entire Western Conference, only the Golden State Warriors was qualified as a contender against the Lakers.
With the two teams having a different mindset, it was soon the day of the game.
Although many Lakers fans said on the internet they wouldn’t watch the game, the arena was obviously fully packed.
Dozens of Hollywood stars sat in the most conspicuous seats.
The Lakers number one fan, the Oscar winning actor Jack Nicholson, sat on the first row with his arms crossed as he looked at the Lakers warm up.
Little Buss sat beside him.
Only a superstar like him could make Little Buss stoop low to accompany someone.
“He’s really a good addition to our team?” Nicholson’s eyes followed the movement of a young boy.
“You definitely won’t be disappointed.” Little Buss promised while covering his mouth, “During our team’s training game, he beat everyone except for Kobe and Iverson.”
“Well, a training game is a training game, totally different from a competitive game.” Nicholson still didn’t believe in it, “I hope he won’t let down the purple and gold shirt!”
“If he performs well, you have to speak out for him!” Little Buss said, “Many people are belittling him right now because he is Chinese! They are all saying he can’t play because he’s Chinese!”
“Haha, I’ll definitely stand up for him as long as he can play well.” Nicholson laughed, “Let’s just wait and see.”
While the two were speaking, a loud and matching cheering was heard from the stand.
“Let’s go Chen Huan! Rise up Chen huan!”
This was said in Chinese.
Little Buss turned his head to look at it and saw there were hundreds of fans all wearing the newly released Chen Huan no.66 jersey, holding the national flag of China and shouting at Chen Huan.
Chen Huan obviously saw this as he stopped his warm-up and gave the thumb up to them.
That crowd squealed.
When Chinese girls came to America, most of them were bold like that.
So this was just a minor thing.
Naturally, it wasn’t only basketball fans that came to watch and Nicholson wasn’t the only celebrity.
Actually, there were two courts where celebrities often appeared.
The first was the without equal New York where there were a lot of celebrities appearing.
The other was Los Angeles.
Because this was where Hollywood was so there were a lot of celebrities who had houses here.
For example, the camera had found many celebrities today.
“Wow, I saw Leo!”
“I saw Keanu Reeve! He’s so handsome!”
“Look, Tom Hanks is here with his son!”
“What’s so good about looking at men!? Look at the pretty girl in the yellow dress, she’s the Hilton’s princess, Paris Hilton!”
“What about Paris Hilton? That Empress Britney over there! I’ve dreamed of seeing her since I was a boy!”
Hahaha, those are women from the past! Look at that beautiful girl in red hair, do you recognize her? That’s Scarlet Witch from the Avengers!”
“Now that you’re mentioning it, the twins near her are very beautiful, who are they?”
“Did none of you notice Miley Cyrus? She’s such a cute black haired beauty, her songs are great too!”
“Tsk! None of those women are cool! Look at this beautiful woman with blond hair, it’s Margot Robbie! She’s the super cool Harley Queen from Suicide Squad that will be released in August!”
These were most of what people discussed in Pomelo.
Because their broadcast was given by the Lakers, Time Warner to be more precise, they could enjoy such a beautiful view half an hour before the game.
People who were watching from CCTV were feeling a bit depressed. Teacher Zhang Yangli was seriously analyzing the strength and weakness of both the Lakers and Blazers so the screen showed the players training or advertisements.
They had been used to this and there was no other choice but to watch that.
But it was different now.
The spread of the internet was very fast.
More and more people learned of the unique broadcast from Pomelo via Weibo or chat groups. They all rushed over and caused a huge pressure on Pomelo’s servers.
Pomelo previously had 50 million users and only about 5 million users online daily. They were mostly there for TV series or anime.
The number of people would only increase when they broadcasted the best episodes but the highest number was less than 20 million people.
But then, they announced they would broadcast all the Lakers games and their source broadcast was different from the one in CCTV and had their own unique perspective, which got the attention of many basketball fans.
In just two days, more than 20 million people registered new accounts on Pomelo.
Many of them were NBA fans but there were also people who were fans of Chen Huan.
“Director, our record has already been broken! There are 10 million people online now! In addition, millions of users are constantly making a new account!” The technical chief reported excitedly.
“Alright! keep it up, don’t let the live freeze!” Jiang Zhenkun felt very pleased.
“No worries, we have prepared 200 servers and there’s nothing to fear even if 100 million people came!” The technical chief promised.
“Hurry up and go back to work, don’t stand here smiling foolishly!” Jiang Zhenkun scolded with a laugh.
Looking at the big screen in front of him that showed the various angles of the Staple Center, Jiang Zhenkun had mixed feelings.
“Chen Huan, I’m betting everything on you! You must perform well or Pomelo is doomed!”
Jiang Zhenkun prayed in his mind.
