I Know Everything - Chapter 615
Chapter 615: Stunning Statement.
ESPN was showing a talk show but then it turned to news reporting as time passed.
It was their ace host Steven A Smith who was the host.
He had a solemn expression with traces of incomprehension and distress.
Smith held the manuscript as he gave a bitter smile to the camera, “Dear NBA fans, Lakers Fans, Chen Huan’s fans… I’m sorry but I have bad news for you.”
“I personally received a call from Chen Huan a few hours ago and he entrusted me to say something for him. Of course, this is something I never wanted to hear, let alone tell you.”
After a pause, he continued with a sigh, “Chen Huan’s statement is, I wish has been realized after winning the NBA championship so I won’t play basketball in the next season and will return to China to attend university and start a new life. Thank you all for your support and cherish the memories we made!”
Wang Zhen, “?!”
Zhang Yaya, “?!”
All GM in the NBA, “?!”
All the fans, “?!”
Only Kobe and Iverson laughed bitterly.
Unexpectedly, the great honor, very promising future, admirations and huge salaries still couldn’t tempt Chen Huan!
The fans’ first reaction was they couldn’t believe it.
They all thought that Smith was bullshitting.
“What a joke, how can Chen Huan do something this stupid?”
“Right, we only hear of people abandoning studies to play in the NBA and never someone who abandoned the NBA to study.”
“ESPN joke went too far this time, I want them to apologize to us!”
“The Lakers are actively negotiating renewal with Chen Huan so how can they let him go?”
“Think about it! Chen Huan is about to make 50 million dollars per year, only an idiot would pass on it!”
“Right! The NBA doesn’t only have a lot of money but there are also celebrities around and he could change the lady every day. How can Chen Huan let this fortune go?”
But then Adidas gave them another fatal blow.
They posted confirmation on their social platform.
“We are sorry to announce that Mr. Chen will withdraw from the NBA and it was something we have known for a long time.”
“However, the cooperation between Mr. Chen and us would never stop and according to the clauses, the contract is now a lifetime contract.”
“We believe that Mr. Chen Huan will continue to do well in various fields with his incredible talents and continue to be the idol Adidas’ customers admire.”
“In order to commemorate Mr. Chen’s comet-like journey in the NBA, Adidas prepared to launch a new T-shirt but as well as an exclusive Chen Huan sneakers and it would soon be on sale.”
“Both of those products would be in limited editions.”
“We would never see Mr. Chen dominate the NBA again and show his greatness but with this T-shirt and sneaker, we can still preserve this memory in our hearts and never forget the beautiful memories.”
Adidas was purely advertising their products.
Very emotional provocative advertisements.
The goal was to sell their new t-shirt and sneakers.
But the first part made it clear that it wasn’t a moment of confusion by Chen Huan and he really wanted to stop playing in the NBA.
The public exploded around the world.
Reporters from everywhere started to research some info and comment on this.
Wang Zhen, who was the closest to Chen Huan, was overwhelmed by the people.
“Sister Zhen, speak up! Is this true?”
“Is Chen Huan really that stupid? What’s so good about studying? What’s so bad about playing in the NBA?”
“Uh… although what the poster above said is not right, what a great achievement for Chen Huan to play basketball! He’s winning honor for us Chinese!”
“Those words are still wrong. Chen Huan’s achievement in mathematics is greater than what he did in basketball!”
“However, Chen Huan’s university is China Agricultural University, he is going to study agriculture!”
“Hahaha, I was depressed at first but seeing the posts above made me laugh.”
“It can only be said that the mind of a genius cannot be comprehended by normal people. It’s like when Sister Xiaofeng donated 100 million yuan away when that’s all he had. He really doesn’t care about money!”
“Stop hiding Wang Zhen, send us news! Send a picture!”
“Right, Wang Zhen, use your big chest to suffocate this idiot Chen Huan and make him change his mind!”
Wang Zhen didn’t let them down as she posted on her Weibo a few minutes later.
“Chen Huan is packing his stuff and ready to go back to China. I’m so sad and he didn’t listen to me. [Crying Emoji]”
But that was a picture of Chen Huan laying on the sofa reading a book.
The Californian sun shined on Chen Huan and illuminated his handsomeness.
But despite the numerous people that protested against it, the decision couldn’t be changed.
Then the Lakers announced their negotiation for the renewal with Chen Huan failed.
Then someone gave him a way for the future.
“As far as I know, the courses in Chinese universities are quite easy and even if Chen Huan didn’t come to play in the regular season, how about he comes to play in the playoffs just like this time?”
“Think about it! even if it’s only in the playoffs, his role cannot be discarded and it’s basically a championship guaranteed!”
It was Barkley who said it.
He was sure bold to say it so bluntly.
It was the Lakers’ hope to sign Chen Huan like this year and let him only play in the playoffs but it was completely disclosed.
The other team, who didn’t think of this, had their eyes lit up.
Chen Huan could still play in the playoff even if he didn’t play in the regular season!
Would they have to worry of not making into the finals as long as Chen Huan was there for the playoffs?
Which team didn’t have at least one or two superstars?
They were inspired by it and immediately acted on it.
Chen Huan’s phone was blown by calls again.
