QINGDAO, East China, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- Ex-NBA star Tracy McGrady sent everyone in his CBA team a Beats Audio headset, transported from the United States, as Christmas presents on Tuesday, thanking for their care and support since he joined the team.
"Today is a special day. It's a day of giving and receiving," McGrady said. "In the last two months, I am far from my family and my teammates are like the family. You brought me joy and happiness."
"Thanks for what you have done for me and I hope we will get the first win in Wednesday's match." McGrady said.
Sheng Xishun, McGrady's boss in the CBA league, sent wallets, belts and routers to his Amrican players and employees, as Christmas presents from the club.
"I wish the American players do their best in games and have their wallets stuffed with cash when they go home," Sheng said.
Although with McGrady, the two-time NBA scoring champ, in the team, Qingdao Doublestars has suffered a 12-straight-loss in the new season.
Since Wednesday is the 10th anniversary of the club, Sheng hoped the team will beat Jiangsu to gain the first victory as a celebration to the club's anniversary.
"I hope we will have a new start tomorrow," Sheng said.
