    Report: Tracy McGrady refuses to play game in China due to arena being too cold

    In a cold gymnasium (reportedly 5 degrees above zero) in Binzhou, Shandong province, former NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady of the Qingdao Eagles refused to play after being on court for only 98 seconds of an exhibition game on Tuesday.

    Fans, who paid a lot to watch T-Mac, were disappointed and threw bottles onto the court to complain about McGrady's stance. Referees ended the match prematurely in a chaotic fourth quarter.

    "The fans' support was warm but the gym was too cold. Letting him play might get him hurt. We were worried," Qingdao General Manager Sheng Xishun said.

    Wow.


    In a video of the game also posted on Sina.com, most of the 5,000 fans in the arena are seen shouting in unison for McGrady to play.

    Photos showed objects raining down on the court as security personnel escorted McGrady into the locker room.

    I thought this was going to be McGrady going all diva in China, but 5 degrees is extremely cold. He would need a hat and gloves to play in that.

    He needs to play in China to prepare himself for the NBA season because he had pre-training camp workouts where he wasn't in shape.

    Once their season ends in February he'll be ready to join the Nets in their quest for a NBA Championship.

    That's still really cold for wearing a basketball jersey and shorts. What the hell are they thinking in China?

    Thats ****ed, but thats what you sign up for in China. Your not getting catered flights and 5 star hotels. You getting business class and the Ramada Inn.
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē

    Chronz will defend T-Mac's decision to not play by coming up with supportive statistical data of the average temperatures in that gym.
