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.
