As if there haven't been enough basketball personalities coming through town - the Harlem Globetrotters, LeBron James, the Laker Girls. Now comes word that Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming's teammate on the Houston Rockets and the NBA's leading scorer in 2003-04, will be dropping into town on August 31. Why are we to be blessed by this bling-bling millionaire? To sell shoes, of course.
