Shame! A fit tmac would be a good fit in chiggy! Rose running the ball, and tmac finishing. Still think there is a role on a good team for this guy. He may not be able to do it every game, but he can still easily drop 30 points in a game, without breaking sweat!

I thought this was already established, that CHI is not interested in McLazy. Why another thread??
Besides, at this point, even Starbury could be more useful than Mclazy.

DId you see him with the knicks? he was garbage...after swearing he was ready to play and this was the best he has felt in years...and he looked broke down....the bulls should pass on him..he is still a diva

Respectfully speaking......this is not 2002. He ain't dropping 30, he's been a jumpshooter for the last 5 years and is allergic to defense.Could he get you 20 one night? Yes....but then you get game off, 4 pts, game off, 6 pts, etcYou put him in the game and he messed up the gameplan, I just don't see how its worth it.......now maybe in December, someone gets hurt and you need a replacement, When you are more desperate. ...you give him a shot.He will not be happy sitting on the bench and will be a locker room distraction. Not worth it

mcgrady still believes he is a real player so your right he would be a distraction. there is a reason the rockets sent him home until they traded him.....he was causing to much drama on a team that was actually winning..........

I was just talking about the C's missing a backup for PP and maybe TMac would be a perfect fit... Doc can manage him...

He doesnt play defense we will pass and he is often injured.....nope.......the cavs need him to sell some tickets

if he would take the vet min and be able to except a role as a bench player he would be ok..but he thinks he is still this superstar so no one should touch him if they are a decent team

Yes.....and a rookie HC that has to 'bench' a former significant star is an incredibly hard thing to do......the risk vs reward in his particular case is not good......since if tmac was PERFECTLY healthy he's what, a 12 pt per game guy off the bench? Big f'n deal

i think coach T with the bulls would do ok with him..but if he cant except that he is no longer the star then keep him away from the bulls
