What people may not realize about Tracy McGrady is that, after being selected with the ninth-overall pick in the 1997 NBA Draft (1997!), the former scoring champion eventually made his way to China just to play the game he loves.
Well, apparently, the folks way out East are still paying attention. Merely a shell of his former seven-time All-Star self, McGrady finally made his first Finals appearance near the end of the bench for the San Antonio Spurs.
We’re not hating, however. In fact, T-Mac has become a favorite of ours here at Gamedayr and definitely a fan fav in the Alamo Dome.
Just check out the rousing ovation he gets when he enters the Spurs’ Game 3 blowout over the Heat — and then listen to his highlights in Chinese, because they are just plain fantastic.
