嘿,哥儿们,昨天的男篮亚锦赛决赛看了吗?中国队太棒了,终于拿回了亚洲冠军,拿到了直通里约的入场券!

Hey, buddy, did you see the mens' final of the FIBA Asia Championship? The Chinese team was so great, finally bringing home the Asian championship title, securing themselves a ticket direct to Rio!
看了,看得我老激动了,好久没有看到中国队有这么酣畅淋漓的表现了,昨天比赛的精彩程度完全不亚于一场NBA季后赛。

I saw it, I got quite over-excited watching it, it's been so long since I've seen the Chinese team playing with such abandon and effort. Yesterday's match was the equal of an NBA playoff.
只可惜现在还是NBA的休赛期,都没有正式比赛看,无聊了只能去翻翻上赛季比赛的录像,望梅止渴一下。

It's just a pity that it is the NBA off-season and there's no official games to watch, so when bored, one can only look through recordings of matches from the previous season, to stem the hunger.
对了,说到上赛季的比赛,我记忆犹新的还是西部半决赛,休斯敦火箭队和洛杉矶快船队的那一轮季后赛。

Yes, talking of the previous season, the Western Conference semifinals are still fresh in my memory, the postseason series of matches between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers.
