Tracy McGrady May Play in China This Season

Tracy McGrady spent the 2013 Playoffs posted up on the Spurs’ bench, and while it was presumed that that was likely to be the end of his NBA career, T-Mac recently told china.org.cn that he could return to China for another run there: “In a pre-game press conference in Nanning, McGrady said he might come back to China Basketball Association (CBA) league despite its under par competitive environment. ‘For those who have played years in NBA and still want to prolong their career like me, CBA is a great alternative,’ said McGrady who played a whole CBA season before he joined the Spurs, clutched 25 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game, and his all-star performance help him sustain his highly respectable status in China. McGrady still enjoys great support from Chinese fans. According to media, in the Yao Foundation Charity Game he attended, spectators made several attempts to invite him on the court, yelling ‘T-Mac’, ‘T-Mac’ throughout the last quarter of the game. ‘China is a huge market. Last season when I played for Tsingtao Doublestar, the fans were incredible. I had a great time there,’ said McGrady.”

    A guy from the Air Force windmill dunked in fatigues and combat boots at the USA scrimmage, but SLAM won’t show it. Instead they show TMZ-related stuff a lot of times.

    I like the fact that Dominique went to greece when his nba career was over. Seems like back then they were looking for competition and just not money

  • RR

    One of my favorite players ever back in his prime.. With that said he needs to hang it up..

    Actually, he did come back and averaged 18.2 a game for the Spurs in 96-97 when The Admiral was down. Somewhat surprisingly, after that season, he wasn’t really given a fair shot in the League.

    Agreed fully. A great alternative to years of NBA competition should be keeping playing on a high level when the NBA-doors are not open any more but I suppose money, even if it means playing on a level of competition as low as the CBA, is just too tempting. Signing with a EuroLeague team and weighing in at that level of competition would mean so much more. It´s not the NBA but it is the next best thing the basketball world has.

    I wish he had gotten more consistent minutes for the Spurs last year. I know TMac isn’t done! I’m glad he’ll take his services somewhere they can be used; I just wish I could watch CBA games.

  • Basketball Coach

    well he does made a name in CBA so going back there is somewhat not surprising, after all it’s not like the NBA which is more physical.
