Tracy McGrady Receiving A Rousing Welcome In China Is The Most Strangely Inspiring Video Of The Day
It's easy to forget how good Tracy McGrady used to be at his peak - the guy once averaged 32.1 points per game for an entire season. But even though he's not even that old now - only 33 - he's been a shell of his old self for a long time. He hasn't averaged double figures in points since 2008-09. And now, for the time being, he's out of the NBA, off to play in China for the Qingdao Eagles.
But that need not be seen as a symbol of some grand fall from grace. Stephon Marbury finding redemption as a championship-winner in China is well-documented. Will McGrady experience a similar resurgence abroad? The fans sure hope so. When McGrady touched down in China, the scene was a reminder of all this guy's accomplished in basketball. And that was pretty cool. McGrady won two straight scoring titles back in the day. He's earned a moment where people are still this excited by his presence:
May your time in China go as well as Starbury's, T-Mac. And, uh, hopefully without a story like this finding its way in there.
