NBA star Tracy McGrady, of the Houston Rockets, arrived in town yesterday as part of a promotional tour that also included stops in Beijing and Shanghai. Arriving over an hour late, McGrady was greeted by about 20 fans at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, where he is staying. McGrady also played some 3-on-3 basketball with youngsters last night at the Convention Centre as part of the launch for his new shoes.
