League Notes: Chinese Basketball Establishes New Rule Following Tracy McGrady Incident
The Chinese Basketball Association issued a new regulation Wednesday, "banning impolite or provocative acts like waving finger in its professional matches." The new rule follows an incident during Sunday's sold-out match between the Beijing Ducks and Qingdao Eagles when former NBAer Tracy McGrady became "irritated by an opponent's waving finger" and retaliated by elbowing him in the chest. The CBA said that the players "must respect the audience, the opponents and the referees" (XINHUA, 12/12). ... The All India Football Federation will be conducting "a major reshuffle" during its upcoming Annual General Meeting, which will see the "induction of three new VPs, as well as members from the five zones" (PTI, 12/12).
