Yes, the rumors are true. Retired National Basketball Association star Tracy McGrady is hoping to become a big league pitcher one day. ESPN commentator Jeff Van Gundy let it slip Friday, during a telecast of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Brooklyn Nets game, that the former Orlando Magic and Houston Rockets star has plans for a new career. No, seriously. During the telecast Van Gundy said,
I think (McGrady’s) going to play independent league baseball as a pitcher this year. I’m being serious. I’ve heard from sources in Houston, seriously, that he’s throwing over 90 miles per hour.
