Video: Frustrated Tracy McGrady with cheap elbow in China

Dec 9, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

Tracy McGrady was welcomed almost like a conquering hero when he landed to play in China — this is the guy who stared next to Yao Ming. When they could stay healthy. Now he had come to play in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Now his Qingdao Eagles are 0-7. At the bottom of the standings. And when Beijing’s Ji Zhe drained a three over him to put Beijing up by 22, then gave McGrady a finger wag, it was too much. McGrady answered with the cheap elbow. And it all got caught on television. Apparently McGrady was not ejected.

Hat tip to for the video (and names of the players)

    … and yes, this is the guy who started next to DIkembe Mutombo. When Yao couldn’t stay healthy.

    He used to dunk amongst the greatest players in the NBA.
    Now just this…
    The irony of life.

    I’ve found that certain types of people seem to engage in this type of behavior when they’re being outperformed on the court…
