I Know Everything - Chapter 590
Chapter 590: Overshadow.
The interval between the third game and fourth game was very short.
They played the third game on the 22nd and they would play the fourth game on the 24th.
The Lakers didn’t go back to Los Angeles but stayed in San Francisco and trained in university facilities.
This shocked many people.
The Lakers previously weren’t that hard working.
Now, it seemed that everyone was like Kobe as they worked hard to get the championship.
A momentum like that was terrifying.
Especially when they got a superstar like Chen Huan.
Chen Huan had earned the right to be called a superstar now.
Even if he only played 9 games so far.
However, Chen Huan showed a shocking level of a superstar player in those nine games.
He already put the Lakers one foot toward the playoff finals with his own strength so if such a player couldn’t be called a superstar, who else was worthy to be called one?
As the backbone of the team, he would naturally give a qualitative change to the team and had it work harder toward the same goal.
Chen Huan rarely talked to his teammates outside of when they were playing but he had the support of Kobe and Iverson.
And which of them hadn’t been beaten by Chen Huan already?
On top of his competitive form, they couldn’t be unconvinced even if they wanted to!
They hadn’t won anything in five years since their last championship in the 2009-2010 season.
How could they slack off now that the championship win was right in front of them?
While in San Francisco, none of them went out to have fun and they didn’t even bring their wives.
They could play later, they could have fun with their girlfriend/wife later, but they couldn’t get the championship if they missed this occasion!
Although NBA players weren’t that smart, they still understood this logic!
Not to mention that Kobe had been nagging at them all the time to not let this go otherwise he wouldn’t spare them.
Everyone would have a good time if they were serious.
They seriously practiced, seriously took their recovery therapy, then on the evening of the 24th and after their tactical briefing, they took a bus to the Oracle Arena.
On the road, they saw many people wearing Chen Huan’s red t-shirt while holding various cheering gadget as they cheered at the bus.
In order to avoid it affecting the players, all the curtains were put down and the players were asked to shut off their phones.
They were either listening to music or resting, very few were chatting.
However, the trip was quite slow.
It took a full hour to reach the arena from their 15km hotel away.
Byron Scott was the first to step down the bus and was almost blinded by the flashes of lights.
A big smile appeared on Byron’s face.
He was ready to make some statement about how confident he was in his team today.
What gave him so much confidence was naturally Chen Huan!
Then he found out that none of the reporters were looking at him but they looked very excited as if they could explode at any time.
There were no fans there and it was all reporters from all walks of life.
But there were too many reporters in the parking lot, at least hundreds of them.
Otherwise, the flashes wouldn’t be that intense.
Byron remembered that there weren’t so many reporters in the previous games.
Byron could only move forward with a slight embarrassment since they weren’t there for him.
He was already accustomed to such treatment since the head coach wasn’t the main focus in a basketball game so he didn’t feel any dissatisfaction.
Players walked out one after another but they were all shocked by the people.
When Kobe and Chen Huan got out as they talked, the reporters exploded with energy and crowded over.
“Chen Huan! Congratulations! Fermat’s Theorem is confirmed to have been proved!”
“Do you have any comments?”
“You’re the only basketball player who can also solve world-class conjecture, this is unprecedented!”
“Chen Huan, everyone back at home is waiting for you to speak!”
“Chen Huan, have you decided how you would celebrate? Which one of Miley Cyrus and Elizabeth Olsen do you prefer to date?”
This group of reporters scrambled to all talk and shoved their microphone in front of Chen Huan and Kobe was almost poked by multiple mics.
Chen Huan was also stunned but luckily the staff nearby pulled him away.
However, none of them could move him.
Even if it was the security guards who tried to do so.
Chen Huan heard multiple languages entering his ears like a mess so it took him a while to get his bearing.
He motioned for them to stop before saying, “Has the Mathematical Association reviewed it?”
Chen Huan obviously guessed the results after seeing the excited crow on how they talked about the Fermat’s Theorem.
However, it was weird since he didn’t receive any reminder that he completed the mission.
Everyone answered him.
Wang Zhen, whom Chen Huan was more familiar with, was in a tight spot but she still added, “The results came out half an hour ago and they announced their conclusion all over the world! Congratulations Chen Huan!”
Wang Zhen had the urge to knock out Chen Huan before taking him to a hotel to have his child.
It would be a huge waste of resources if a super genius like him didn’t make more children.
The other reporters couldn’t hold back after seeing Wang Zhen rushing to get some answers.
It would be difficult for Chen Huan to get out since there were too many of them so he could only agree to answer ten of their questions.
Chen Huan was finally able to get into the court after half an hour.
At that time, almost everyone was done with their warm up.
However, the players all smiled when they saw him come.
They obviously learned that Chen Huan’s proof of Fermat’s Theorem had been recognized as good.
Before Kobe could walk up to Chen Huan, a slender figure rushed up to Chen Huan and did a three hit combo again.
“Congratulations, Chen Huan! You’re a great figure now!” Miley Cyrus’s beautiful eyes shone.
Chen Huan felt it was suspicious as this kind of woman who wasn’t very smart was obviously taking advantage of this opportunity to get exposure.
Then Elizabeth Olsen also ran over, although shy, she still gave a courageous hug.
“Congratulations to you, the smartest man in the world!” She whispered that to his ear.
Next was the tall singer, Taylor Swift.
She already came to watch several Lakers games and would cheer for Kobe, Iverson and Chen Huan when they made a play.
Taylor smiled and gave Chen Huan a hug, “Come on, Chen Huan! I look forward to the great mathematician to bring the Lakers to the championships! Then I can make a song dedicated to you!”
Chen Huan started to sweat.
The songs this big sister makes about men were practically curses.
People who didn’t know the situation would think that he was an a̲s̲s̲h̲o̲l̲e̲ who abandoned her!
Even many fans from the Golden State Warriors stood up and applauded Chen Huan.
For them, Chen Huan’s outstanding achievement in mathematics surpassed basketball and was worthy of praise.
While the applause was getting louder and louder, a group of Chinese with the red t-shirt opened a large silk banner.
“Thank you, Chen Huan! You’re the pride of the Chinese!”
The characters were in Chinese and seemed to be written in a rush.
However, Chen Huan felt emotional as he ran toward their direction and gave them big thumbs up.
The camera from CCTV and Pomelo both caught this exciting scene.
However, the Warriors players were dumbfounded.
Although they knew what was going on, they still couldn’t accept the cheers and the betrayal.
Was the f̲u̲c̲k̲ they were doing?
People who didn’t know would think they were already eliminated!
Wasn’t this a bad sign?
