As noted at Xinhua News Agency that day, Tracy McGrady was on his seventh appearance at the CBA playing for the Qingdao Doublestar Eagles against the Beijing Ducks. He was seen being taunted by Ji Zhe, who waved his finger at him after making a successful three-point shot, with the Ducks leading by 19 points, 89-70.
According to the report, Mcgrady made 16 points in the first 12 minutes of the first quarter, which led his team to have a four-point lead, 33-29. He did not play for the entire second quarter but went on fire when he returned in the third quarter. It was at the start of the fourth quarter when McGrady was taunted by Zhe.
“Mcgrady didn’t control his temper, and we need to give him some guidance in the future,” Qingdao Eagles manager Zhang Shizhang was quoted in the report. McGrady was immediately given a technical foul for his unprofessional act. He finished the game with season-high 37 points.
McGrady, 33, who is a two-time NBA Scoring Champion and a seven-time NBA All-Star team member, signed a one-year contract for Qingdao Doublestar last October 9. He previously played for the Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, and Atlanta Hawks.
