I Know Everything - Chapter 589
Chapter 589: The series is decided.
The facilities in the Oracle Arena were quite advanced and it wasn’t that different from the Staple Arena.
When Chen Huan walked into the court, he was blinded by the color red.
Taking a closer look, there were thousands of people wearing his Adidas shirt.
It would obviously appear more intimidating when they all sat together.
This group of people was basically all Chinese.
They all cheered loudly when they saw Chen Huan.
“Chen Huan, Let’s go!!”
“Let’s go Chen Huan, you’re the best!”
Kobe stood beside Chen Huan as he looked at the group of Chinese people before exclaiming, “Coming to play in California is surely the best choice! This is basically your home!”
Chen Huan just laughed without saying anything else.
Kobe had been nagging him all the time to get him to stay.
Whether it was Kobe and Iverson, they were reluctant to let Chen Huan leave after having a taste of playing beside him.
Iverson was still alright since he would at most play for a year or two before he had to retire even with the decoction made by Chen Huan.
Kobe was different as he was 37 years old and could play for four more years if Chen Huan could guarantee the supply of the decoction.
If he could play with Chen Huan for four more years and get 10 rings before he retired, what was not to like? How could it not be nice?
Kobe wasn’t discouraged by Chen Huan not responding to him as he dragged him to start training.
Chen Huan was very popular as it wasn’t only Chinese people who would cheer when he made a shot or a dunk but even foreigners would chant his name.
In the first few rows, there were celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Elizabeth Olsen and Taylor Swift. They all smiled when they saw Chen Huan come onto the court.
San Francisco wasn’t that far from Los Angeles so they of course came here since they were free.
The players from the Golden State were also warming up and saw how popular Chen Huan was, so couldn’t help but give each other glances.
They were feeling worried and jealous on one side while on the other side they were worried about the home court advantage.
At least one-third of them were Chinese and if they added the Lakers fans that came, there was no home court advantage anymore.
Then, they realized those were sound worries after the game started.
It seemed to have more than ten thousand fans shouting Chen Huan’s name.
Their cheer would increase for every Chen Huan’s steal, dunk, points scored, breaking ankles etc… as if they were about to lift the Oracle Arena with their cheers.
In contrast, those cheering for the Warriors were at most the same level.
This was a bit depressing.
The Warriors saw the Lakers play better with the fans’ support on top of Chen Huan going crazy since the game started so they could only grit their teeth and fight through it.
The problem was Chen Huan was unstoppable in offense and defense.
The Warriors opted for the double-team strategy as every time Chen Huan got the ball, two defenders would come to him but they still couldn’t prevent him from passing the ball or dribbling past them.
Less than three minutes after the start, Chen Huan had actually pushed both Curry and Draymond Green five to six meters back and he then even dunked.
The players from the Warriors hated it.
Chen Huan showed them that he would use his strong body to bully them..
No one could resist the physical play against Chen Huan but they had to endure the pain of going in contact against Chen Huan so they could endure it silently.
They thought just like the Blazers sacrificed a player to bring down Chen Huan.
Considering Chen Huan’s behavior with his chair tearing and that if Davis was rougher back then, Chen Huan may had used more than and then…
Life was more important.
So they could only play fairly.
This type of matchup where the Warriors couldn’t crack the opposition’s plan was naturally bad for them.
So by the end of the fourth quarter, the Lakers had 137 points while the Warriors had 107 points.
The Lakers won once again by more than 30 points.
The series was now 0:3.
Chen Huan, who didn’t shoot a single three pointer, still had a quintuple double with 53 points, 21 assists, 20 steals, 25 rebounds and 21 blocks.
Curry was the highest scorer for the Warriors but he only had 29 points.
Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut were sent off due to fouling Chen Huan 6 times.
Reggie Miller, who was Barkley Partner for this game, suddenly sadly exclaimed, “It’s over for the Warriors! They don’t have the energy or a plan to defeat Chen Huan!”
“Their eyes are filled with frustration. Maybe this is what happens when team oriented players encounter invincible superstars!”
Barkley ignored this and said instead, “I’m more interested in whether Lebron will change his mind or not. Who else can deal with Chen Huan beside him?”
“If he doesn’t deal with him, Chen Huan’s offense and ability to help his team is better! Lebron can’t get a quintuple double every game!”
Reggie Miller shook his head, “If the Warriors can’t deal with him, the Cavaliers won’t be able either! they only have two superstars, Lebron and Kyrie, Chen Huan can take care of both of them, can the rest stop Kobe and Iverson?”
Barkley agreed and said, “It’s time for the Cavaliers to think how to deal with the fiercest player in the history!”
As the two men talked, everyone in the Cavaliers’ room looked at the calm and powerful looking man.
Lebron had a solemn expression.
The media boasted of Chen Huan’s greatness when the Lakers eliminated the Blazers but Lebron ignored it.
The media were merciless.
They would tout a player heavily when playing well but turn their back at them and trash talk them as if they were a shit stain the moment their performance drops.
However, Lebron didn’t expect Chen Huan would be so fierce and powerful to an inhuman level.
He tried it in private and couldn’t reach his level at all!
He thought the Warriors would eliminate the Lakers with their great teamwork but the Warriors got outplayed like this.
Now the situation was clear.
The Cavaliers must beat the Lakers if they want to win.
Their biggest problem was how to deal with Chen Huan if they wanted to win.
Lebron knew it wasn’t easy to solve.
Kyrie certainly couldn’t handle such an important task.
Only he had the ability to go against Chen Huan.
Nobody else on the team could defend Chen Huan as well as attack the opposition.
Could he really beat the boy?
Lebron clenched his fist as he watched the boy on TV surrounded by celebrities.
