“Long overdue for a win”

Those were the first words spoken by T-Mac in the post game press conference after his team’s first win of the season.    Unlike many of the previous losses, Tmac did not put up a near triple double or 35-40 points.   He put up a modest 19 points on 7-13 shooting but the key was his teammates finally stepped up. One of them, Ex Laker Chris Daniels, actually lead the team in scoring with 27.  Tao Li also chipped in with a double double of 19 and 10.

The Qingdao Double Star Eagles are now 1-12 and still at the bottom of the CBA standings but hopefully, like Steve Nash’s return in LA, this win will help turn things around and bring back some optimism to fans in China that thought the arrival of T-Mac would make them a contender.  The first win also happen to come on the franchises 10th anniversary.

Maybe it was the Beat headphones he gave all of his teammates for Christmas.
