While you have been focused on the Knicks hot start, Tracy McGrady has been plying his trade in China as a member of the Qingdao Eagles. In his first game he dropped 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists…
Oh, and he threw down that dunk.
Nice to see the man still has some hops.
McGrady has been a big star in China, in part because he was Yao Ming’s running made in Houston for many years.
The Wizards have a full roster of 15 players. They don’t qualify for a hardship exemption, which a team gets if four players have missed three straight games and will continue to be out. Only Webster and Alan Anderson definitely fit that bill. Gooden, who has missed five straight, might. But it’s unclear both how many of those absences were due to injury and when he’ll return.
Hollins is more center than power forward and doesn’t appear to fit well with Marcin Gortat. But at this point, Washington just needs big bodies. Hollins – a nine-year veteran who plays decent interior defense, lacks offensive skill and rebounds poorly for his 7-foot frame – is at least that.
