Zidane is a reluctant talker at the best of times, and it's understandble that Materazzi would not tell. So football fans may never be sure what Materazzi said to provoked Zidane into an act of retaliatory violence......
这里的at the best of times是“在多数情况下”的意思吗?

我的理解是:在心情最好的时候都是一个不爱说话的人

或:就算在他(齐丹)讲话最多的时候都还是不善言词。
那么对此事件则更不愿意多说

borrowed from the famous quotes: TALE OF TWO CITIES 双城记--- 书的开卷语,“那是最美好的时代,那是最糟糕的时代”(It was the best of times. It was the worst of times)已经成为文学史中的经典名句

at the best of times:即使在最好的情况下...

在不同的语境会做相应的改变,在此处比较同意2#的翻译。

at many times 在多数情况下

佩服!
另:
狄更斯的着句话说的太对了,例如:现在是信息时代,人类在这些年取得得成就发展超过了以往任何时期,可以说是at the best of times, 但另一方面,例如:terrorism, pollution, etc 却是 at the worst of times.
