HOHHOT Uomo Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Blu Bianche Scontate , Inner Mongolia, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Tracy McGrady will lead a team of former NBA stars to play friendly games on a 3-week tour in 11 cities across China, organizers said here on Tuesday.
The US team, which also includes former NBA stars Ater Majok and Brandon Robinson, will play CBA teams from Liaoning Uomo Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Army Verde Scontate , Fujian, Zhejiang and other provinces or regions in October.
Their first match will be played on October 6 in South China's Liuzhou and the last on October 28 in southwestern Kunming.
The versatile McGrady had made his professional baseball debut in May.
He started as the pitcher for the Sugar Land Skeeters, allowing two runs in 1 23 innings during the 5-3 loss to the Somerset Patriots.
McGrady was a seven-time All-Star player in NBA. He had won two scoring titles as an NBA player.
The first two rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament came and went last week with the usual flurry of buzzer-beating upsets, tearful losses and busted brackets.
One item that basically flew under the radar was guarantee made by Eastern Washington coach Jim Hayford, who Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Uomo Rosse Scontate , before his team's first-round game vs. Georgetown, told CBS Sports' Jim Rome, "We're going to win …"
Apparently, Georgetown didn't get the memo, beating Eastern Washington 84-74. After the game Uomo Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Obsidian Bianche Scontate , Georgetown coach John Thompson III made a point of referring to several sports guarantees from the late 20th century, when such things were socially significant.
During the 1960s, Muhammad Ali often guaranteed not only victories, but also specific rounds in which they would occur. Ali's verbal braggadocio polarizing Americans whose country was also roiling with racial and political conflict.
In 1969, quarterback Joe Namath guaranteed a gaggle of poolside reporters that his New York Jets would defeat the heavily favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. The Jets' subsequent win paved the way for the AFL-NFL merger Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Bianche Scontate , and 45 years later, the league sits unchallenged atop the American sports landscape.
Even NBA legend Larry Bird's locker-room guarantee that he was going to win the 1988 three-point shooting contest was important in its own way. Bird's bravado played a huge role in his rivalry with Magic Johnson, a rivalry that helped jolt the league out of a decade-long malaise and into prime time.
In today's media-saturated society, athletes' words carry less weight than Ali's, Namath's or Bird's. Virtually anyone can have a Twitter account Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Nere Uomo Scontate , where offensive or controversial tweets generally enjoy 15 seconds of fame before being shoved out of the public's increasingly short attention span by another "shocking" comment.
None of this is meant to blame Hayford. He's not the first coach to guarantee victory in an attempt to instill confidence in his team, and he won't be the last. Tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year Uomo Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 Tutte Nere Scontate , another coach or athlete will come out and make the same kind of boastful statement.

A government-backed think tank is predicting first quarter gross domestic product growth to fall to 6.85 percent, as a vice-finance minister said this year could be the "most challenging" economic environment since the global financial crisis in 2008.
A report by the National Academy of Economic Strategy, under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said GDP growth will slip from the fourth quarter's 7.3 percent and the key inflation gauge, the consumer price index Nike Shox Avenue Scontate , will rise 1.2 percent year-on-year in the first quarter.
If its prediction proves right, it would be the second-worst quarterly performance since the first quarter of 2009, when growth plunged to 6.1 percent in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
Using a set of monthly data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, Bloomberg has calculated that monthly GDP growth in January slowed to 6.85 percent and 6.28 percent in February.
Wang Hongju, a CASS researcher Nike Shox OZ D Scontate , said, however, that China has "ample ammunition" to deal with downward economic pressure in the second quarter, including reserve requirement ratio cuts, loan-deposit ratio adjustments and infrastructure spending.
The new CASS figures came as vice-minister of finance Zhu Guangyao said over the weekend that he considered the current international economic environment as the most challenging since the global financial crisis.
He told the China Development Forum that under current conditions the country should adopt a "proactive fiscal policy" while maintaining a prudent monetary policy that is "neither too loose nor too tight".
The government has expressed its willingness to allow its biggest ever budget deficit in 2015 since 2008 to support spending. The Ministry of Finance has also announced that local governments will be able to swap 1 trillion yuan ($161.2 billion) of maturing Nike Shox R4 Scontate , high-interest local debt for new official municipal or provincial bonds, to help ease their repayment burden.
Zhu said the swap arrangements would allow China to rein in possible risks from short-term local government bonds.
