    Question What does seven time or seven-time mean?

    Hey guys!

    You see, I love this community, and I'm not just learning programming, but English as well.

    I'm concentrating on NBA now, but I can't understand what "seven time" means? I can't find it in my dictionary. I think that maybe I can get some help here.

    "the Houston Rockets made a second-half surge without injured seven-time All-Star Tracy McGrady to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-89 on Monday night."

    thanks in advance!

    That he/she has become All Star 7 times. You could say "seven-time World Champion", meaning that the person has won the world championship 7 times.
