PLAYERS: Tracy McGrady
TEAMS: Atlanta Hawks
It's good to know T-Mac is having fun over there in China. Helping the Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles to warm-up game wins and putting up big numbers in China isn't exactly starting in the NBA All-Star Game, at least it appears that McGrady is enjoying his time overseas. This is a classic move to endear yourself to a fan-base and McGrady was clearly paying attention to how this was done in the states. I may be mistaken, but I believe Rafer "Skip to my Lou" Alston invented this move to great success. After that kiss he became household name when it came to light-hearted NBA moments. We'll have to keep an eye on McGrady over there in Asia to see if he pulls out any more of these moves. If you're in another country you might as well be liked, right?
