China Basketball Association (CBA) superstar Tracy McGrady, or "T-Mac," who plays for the Qingdao Eagles has criticized a CBA rules test for players and coaches as "nonsense," Newspaper.lndaily.com.cn reported Tuesday.

Bai Xilin, an official from Chinese Basketball Association said on Monday, the CBA League Rules Test for Players and Coaches is designed to test their knowledge of the league's rules. It consists of 25 questions that are true or false, and A or B, options.

McGrady said there is no need for the test as the content is so basic and every CBA player knows how to deal with the questions both on and off the court.

An anonymous CBA player who has taken the test also said most players can pass the test easily and players with little CBA experience also have no problems with it.

In response to McGrady, Bai said the CBA has some rules that are different than the National Basketball Association and the International Basketball Federation. He said McGrady should set an example for other players to learn the rules well and it would be helpful for him to play better in the CBA.
