查爾斯-巴克利:“錢能毀掉了你所有的人際關係。無論你為家庭做了什麼,他們都不會滿足。你所有的朋友都覺得你這麼有錢,那你就該在所有情況下都用錢幫他們平事。只有在籃球場上我才能擁有平和寧靜的時刻。”

Charles Barkley: "Money ruins all your relationships. No matter what you do for your family, it's never enough. All your friends think because you're rich, you should bail them out of every situation. The only time I had any peace and quiet was on the basketball court."



Context:

"People don't understand what these guys in the African-American community go through," longtime agent Aaron Goodwin says. "It's so hard for them to separate themselves from the people they grew up with. It leads to withdrawal, anxiety. There's guilt about turning their backs on people they care about but who aren't good influences in their lives.

部分原文如下:

“人們不理解非裔美國人羣體經歷着什麼”,資深經紀人Aaron Goodwin表示,“他們很難將自己與那些陪伴他們成長的人分割開來。這讓他們退卻,焦慮。如果他們拒絕幫助自己所在意的那些人,自己就會有負罪感,可是那些人卻又並沒有給自己的生活帶來好的影響。”


There's this pressure of, 'I have to succeed because so many people are counting on me.' And then there's all the people with their hands out because everyone wants money."

“而且他們心中存在這樣的壓力,‘我得成功,那麼多人都指着我呢。’然後所有人都伸出手,因為人人都想要錢。”


Barkley remembers those days well. As a rookie with the Sixers, he felt compelled to assist his family and his boys from Leeds financially. But as the years went on, accommodating everyone who had a hand out became a burden, a distraction -- and a trigger for stress.

巴克利清楚地記得那些日子。作為76人的一名新秀,他感到自己不得不在經濟上幫助自己老家的家人和兄弟們。但隨着時間流逝,七大姑八大姨的忙都要幫的日子成為了一種負擔,分散了他的精力——也成為了壓力爆發的導火索。


"Money ruins all your relationships," Barkley says. "No matter what you do for your family, it's never enough. All your friends think because you're rich, you should bail them out of every situation.

"The only time I had any peace and quiet was on the basketball court."

“錢能毀掉了你所有的人際關係。無論你為家庭做了什麼,他們都不會滿足。你所有的朋友都覺得你這麼有錢,那你就該在所有情況下都用錢幫他們平事。只有在籃球場上我才能擁有平和寧靜的時刻。”

I think he plays a character like most TV personalities but that doesn't change the fact the man was a NBA player and knows what they're all going through. Sure he says some ridiculous shit on TV but hes still Charles Barkley at the end of the day. You can still flame his takes and agree with this..

我認為巴克利跟大多數在電視上混的主持和解説一樣,鏡頭前的他只是在扮演一個角色,但他曾經是位NBA球員,他知道球員們都在經歷些什麼,這點是無法改變的。是,他在電視上的一些屁話有些荒唐,但他歸根結底還是那個查爾斯-巴克利啊。大家噴他的同時依然可以認同他主樓的這段話嘛。

It's even worse for them. Because people act like they dont deserve it. And since they didnt earn it they should give as much as possible away. And if you refuse they grow angry because they see it as well you had nothing yesterday.. what's 10k when you've been handed a mil?

中彩票的人的情況更糟。因為人們會覺得他們配不上那筆錢。因為那不是他們賺的,他們就應該儘可能多的把這筆錢散出去。如果你拒絕了他們的要求,他們就會很氣憤,會這麼想:“你昨天還一無所有呢……你都白白得到一百萬美元了,一萬塊還算個事兒麼?”


Apparently the best thing to do if you win the lotto is rent a hotel for a week or two and go off the grid because as soon as charities find out who you are the phone doesn't stop ringing

顯然,中彩票之後最好的做法就是租一個賓館租個一兩個星期,切斷和外界的聯繫,因為只要慈善機構發現你的身份,那你電話可就要被打爆了。

I read a documentary on a guy who already owned a business and was considered wealthy before he won a large jackpot. He tried to help people with his new found money and even hired a PI to investigate if everyone who wanted money was legit. People ended up killing his grand daughter trying to get his money. It was terrible. All this happened to someone that knew how to deal with large amounts of money.

我曾經看過一個紀錄片,講的是一箇中彩票之前就已經擁有了一家企業的富人。他試着用這筆新到手的錢來幫助他人,甚至還聘用了一個私家偵探來調查想要錢的人是不是符合條件的。最後,人們殺了他的孫女,就是為了試圖得到他的錢。

這真的太糟糕了。所有這些可都是發生在一個知道如何處理大筆財富的人的身上啊。


[–]BullsTommyleTerror 121 指標 4小時前

Haven't seen the documentary, but I grew up in Teays Valley, WV, where this guy is from. He might have known how to deal with large amounts of money at one point, but definitely not after the lottery. Dude routinely had half a mil, cash, in his trunk while going to hole-in-the-wall strip joints and flaunting his money around in front of some shady, and often desperate, characters.

我沒看過這個紀錄片,但是我成長於西弗吉尼亞的Teays Valley,那個老哥就是這兒的人。他可能曾經知道如何妥善處理鉅款,但是中彩票之後絕對就不是這樣了。中了彩票之後,他經常把50萬美元的現金放在自己的後備箱裏,去什麼髒亂差的脱衣舞俱樂部,然後在一些陰暗又為了錢什麼事都能幹得出來的人面前炫富。


I only ever heard that his grand daughter overdosed and likely had her body hidden and thrown out by people she was using with, but I don't know if anything was officially confirmed by police or coroners. I'll have to watch the documentary, because growing up there, he definitely wasn't thought of as someone who had it all together and the lottery turned the world against him.

我只是聽説過他的孫女是毒品攝入過量而死,好像她的屍體被一起吸毒的人藏了起來,然後被拋屍了。但是我不知道這些事有沒有被警方或者驗屍官官方證實過。我得看看那部紀錄片,因為他在我家那邊長大,他在大家眼中絕對不是什麼特別言行舉止正常的人,而彩票直接讓整個世界都與他為敵了。

My friend's grandpa was (allegedly) killed by his brother when they disagreed on whether to keep the family farm or sell it to a large corporation. The farm was valued in the millions and one brother wouldn't sell his share, he disappeared one night and no one heard from him again. The other brother sold the farm and cut his brother's kids out of the deal, becoming a wealthy man overnight and leaving his nieces and nephews destitute.

我朋友的爺爺被自己的兄弟給殺害了(據説),原因是他們就留着家裏的農場還是賣給一個大公司的問題上出現了分歧。那個農場估價上百萬美元,其中一個兄弟表示不會賣掉自己的那份,一天晚上他消失了,再也沒有人聽説過他的消息。另一個弟兄把農場賣了,並把他兄弟的孩子從合同中給踢了出去,然後一夜暴富,他的侄子侄女則窮困潦倒。

It's the one thing most rookies are almost never prepared for it seems. You see it every year with rookies (not even just the top lottery picks) going out and buying like a 4 million dollar car  and a house for their parents, and just like that nearly half their money's gone and they haven't even hit summer league yet.

大部分新秀都幾乎從未為此做過準備。每年都有新秀(甚至都不是順位靠前的樂透秀)出去買400萬美元的車子、房子,然後再給父母買一棟房子,這就差不多花了他們一半的錢,而他們連夏季聯賽都還沒打呢。


I know the league has like 1 or 2 (I think mandatory) pre-draft classes/talks you have to sit through from former NBA players talking about money and how they blew it and financial advisors and whatnot, but honestly I doubt any of that works as intended.

我知道聯盟會組織差不多1到2次(我記得是強制性的)選秀前的課程與交流,你需要耐着性子聽前NBA球員們談論金錢,談論他們是如何揮霍的,還有財務顧問的講解諸如此類的內容,但是説實話我並不認為這像預期的那樣有效。

My brother went to a super elite college, and made some very rich friends. Like, 'nine figures' rich. I've met them a few times, and a big part of how they make it work is to simply act like regular people when it comes to money. They don't offer to pay for things, they don't spend more than the people around them spend, they never, ever talk about it. Honestly even once you know, you totally forget how rich they are after spending a bit of time with them. I think that might be the best you can do in their situation.

我哥哥以前在一個特別貴族的精英學校上學,交了一些非常有錢的朋友。都是些資產上億的富翁。我見過他們幾次,他們之所以能保持富有,很大一部分原因在於他們對待錢就跟普通人一樣。他們不會主動買單,他們的花銷不會比周圍人多,他們從來不會談論自己有多有錢。説真的,哪怕你知道他們賊有錢,跟他們相處一段時間後你也會完全忘了他們有多壕。我覺得他們的做法可能是你在那種情況下最好的參照。

He paid for his 4 kids to go to college, and goes on lots of vacations but just looking at him you would have no idea. I never understood how I see guys begging for money on the streets with nicer shoes then I am wearing, or guys with gold chains but dont own a car, it's always been weird to me.
