Your First T-Mac Update From China (17/8/6 + Vintage Dunk)
 
It was only an exhibition game, but T-Mac's Chinese career is off to a pretty good start...


Quote:

Tracy McGrady, who signed a one-year deal with the CBA’s Qingdao Golden Eagles this offseason, made his exhibition debut today against a team comprised of players from the NBL (National Basketball League, Australia) and the NCAA. McGrady scored 17 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and dished 6 assists in 29 minutes, according to Sina Sports. Qingdao won the game 93-83, and McGrady highlighted his performance with a baseline drive and one-handed slam…

After the game, McGrady said something to this affect (imperfect translation from the aforementioned Chinese site Sina Sports):

“[I'm jumping] very good, [and] such a slam dunk proves the results of my efforts to train, and also to respond to a lot of people [who] questioned me before, so [to dunk], the feeling is very good! … there will be more dunks!”

Like I said, imperfect translation… but it certainly seems as though McGrady intends to dunk his critics to death. I must say, that’s my kind of method!

Impressive dunk, but it shows a lack of awareness and understanding on his part if he intends to just "dunk his critics to death".

He's at the age where his game shouldn't be so athleticism-based anymore. It's nice to show flashes once in a while, but he's risking further injury and deterioration if keeps trying to play like his younger self.

Time to focus on those other skills and his basketball IQ which has been underrated all of his career.

There were other quotes where he talked about techinical aspects of the game, but I just pulled that one and came up with that line about dunking his critics to death because it fit with the video and went along with what he said about the dunk. I wasn't being 100% serious with that one. :lol

It doesn't seem like Iverson could ever accept not being an elite player. I respect that but it meant he couldn't be an old player.

Well if he had got himsef to that level earlier in the offseason he would have been on someones roster now instead of blowing by a bunch amature Z league scrubs.
