I Know Everything - Chapter 550
Chapter 550: Enticing Chen Huan.
After the game, Kobe and Iverson received a phone call before they went home.
The two looked at each other after hanging up the phone.
Then the two looked at Chen Huan.
“Ahem, the CEO of Reebok has asked to see you tomorrow or tonight is also fine.” Iverson was the first to speak, “They want to give a shoe deal.”
“It’s the same from Nike as the Vice-CEO also wants to give you a contract.” Kobe said.
Chen Huan nodded and said, “Didn’t you tell them that I’m only playing in the NBA this year?”
“Don’t joke around brother!” Iverson patted his shoulder, “You’re born to play basketball, how can you only play for a single year? Isn’t it a waste of your talent?”
“But I really don’t have the time to play.” Chen Huan shook his head, “I will go to university in September and will further my study in mathematics as well as writing songs, there are many things to do in China.”
Kobe was speechless, “Do you know how much money basketball can bring you?”
“Why would I need that much money?” Chen Huan gave him a weird look, “I already have money! I have almost donated 30 million dollars in total! Do you think I love money that much?”
Kobe and Iverson looked at each other.
They knew of this and even praised him before. Chen Huan was different from the other basketball players and he was a true role model for the people.
They didn’t expect Chen Huan to be so hard set on not having time to play basketball.
Was basketball not attractive enough?
Seems like it.
For Chen Huan, writing songs and further his research on mathematics was more interesting than playing basketball.
Money wasn’t something important to him at all.
The two could also tell that Chen Huan wasn’t pretending.
Aside from almost donating all of his wealth away, Chen Huan never bought any luxury goods since he came to the US and his car was even given by Buss.
They had never seen such a pure 17 years old before.
Basketball would lose a large part of its appeal if he wasn’t interested in money.
“But the excitement of playing on the basketball court and the satisfaction of victory, wasn’t that something that stroke a man’s ego?” Iverson insisted further.
“There’s also women, as long as you’re successful, Hollywood actresses, models, celebrities etc… will all throw themselves at you and you can take a different one out every single day!” Kobe also tried to persuade him, “If they don’t make the cut, Vanessa knows people from schools and helps introduce you to some high school girls.”
Chen Huan sneered at them and ignored them.
Kobe and Iverson didn’t know what a Buddha-like boy was.
But they had some impression of it now with Chen Huan.
Since nothing could be done, they could only give up for now.
They still had a lot of time to find Chen Huan’s weakness and get him to play in the NBA.
Their car directly went home and their home was in the same community so they arrived at Chen Huan’s home first since it was closer.
They saw someone stand at the door of Chen Huan’s house at that time.
The bodyguards at the front became alarmed.
One of them quickly got out to ask who it was.
The other one who drove, notified Kobe via the radio device and also put his hand on his holster to deal with any situation.
There was nothing shocking about that as many bodyguards in the US had permits to carry weapons, otherwise how could they become bodyguards for the rich?
Would they use their own body to fight the gangsters?
Kobe and the others weren’t that nervous.
Because this was a high end residential area so the security was quite good and they had several teams of people patrolling 24/7.
Moreover, they had cameras everywhere in the streets and the management would be alerted if there was any problem.
After a moment, the bodyguard came back and knocked on the window at the back before handing over a business card, “Boss, this man is Adidas’ North America branch general manager Watnard. He’s here to meet Mr. Chen Huan.”
Kobe took the business card and looked at it before laughing, “Look, everyone is here for you Chen Huan!”
“We just have to get him to leave.” Chen Huan said with a smile before he opened the door and walked out, “Go get some sleep, you guys are old and it’ll be bad if you don’t take care of your body.”
The three of them were teammates and played together side by side so their relationship obviously improved.
Kobe and Iverson immediately became unhappy at those words.
It was like for women who didn’t like to be called old and men also felt the same.
“This kid needs to be taught a lesson or what?” Iverson said.
“I’m of the same mind. He needs to respect his seniors.” Kobe said deeply.
“When I was leaving, Paris Hilton gave me her business card and asked me to pass it to Chen Huan.” Iverson said, “How about we invite her to Chen Huan’s house for him?”
“Uh…” Three black lines appeared on Kobe’s head, “Forget it, she’s a 35 years old woman and almost twice the age of Chen Huan. Besides, her reputation isn’t that good…I got Miley Cyrus and Elizabeth Olsen’s contacts here, which one are we choosing?”
“I think Elizabeth is more mature and tame, she also doesn’t have any rumors surrounding her so she should be quite clean. She’s more suitable for Chen Huan to start his education on an adult life.” Iverson had a dirty smile.
“Alright, let’s get her!” Kobe made the call with enthusiasm as he got out of the car and he didn’t seem to be a man that feared to stir things up.
The two didn’t stop to think that Elizabeth was 27 years old and ten years older than Chen Huan so how could anything happen between them?
Of course, Americans didn’t care about that.
They usually regard this kind of stuff like some healthy exercise. They would sleep if they liked each other and separate if it didn’t work, nothing messy.
Especially after adulthood, when the women would just treat it as a transaction.
The more utilitarian she was, the more casual it would be.
However, as Iverson said, there weren’t any rumors or scandals around Elizabeth Olsen at 27 years old so she should be quite puritan.
Miley Cyrus was different as she got engaged once and got almost married.
She also had many boyfriends since her debut. Kobe and Iverson were aware of the mentality of the common Chinese men so they crossed her off.
The two tried so hard and put so much thought on it because they wanted Chen Huan to stay in the US and in the NBA.
It would be much easier if Chen Huan got a girlfriend in the US!
