College Athletes - 大学のアスリート


College Athletes(大学のアスリート)

ポニーテール: Oh, huh. California passed a law giving college athletes full rights to their names and images.
白ハット: Good, I think?

男: That's nothing. Our state gave college players rights to use the names and images of any California athletes.
ポニーテール: It did not.

男: Sure it did!

男: That's how our school fielded a basketball team made up entirely of Steph Currys.
白ハット: Or is the plural "Stephs Curry"?

男: They didn't all copy the original Steph, though. One player got the rights to his name, then the next player got it from them, and so on.
男: This process is known as "currying".

ポニーテール: ...I hate you so much.

Alt-text: Their signature play is the three-point combinator, a recursive offense which is guaranteed not to halt and continues accumulating points until the buzzer.
