T-Mac to Miami?


08:12 AM ET 09.20 | A return to the Sunshine State could happen for Tracy McGrady. [McGrady] made it clear that he had hoped to join the Heat last season. He wanted, and likely still wants, to be here. And, truth be told, he not only had his moments last season in Detroit but appeared, for the most part, accepting of a complementary role. The case against: The risk with such players is they revert to their old ways, start taking plays away from the team's core players. Even in Detroit there were moments of uncertainty as to whether McGrady truly was with the program. We say: A year ago, we shrugged the possibility off. But there is versatility there, and the price should be right.

QUOTE(#1): he playing center?

Nope, he will strickly sub in the 4th quarters, score a bunch of shots including game winning clutch ones too.. and Lebron will finally get his breathers.

Lebron MVP 1st - 3rd quarters, T-Mac 4th quarter hero!

Tracy was nasty in toronto, and in Orlando, before the injuries......I mean, he was the same type of offensive weapon as kobe, and even played a little D, back in those days

Tracy put up unreal offensive numbers in Orlando, but kinda had to. There was no one else on that team, except for Grant Hill, and we all know how well Hill's stay in Orlando went.

McGrady was pretty damn good at his apex, but was never going to amount to anything other than a no-defense ball-hog.

Good morning, FN...the Curator is IN.

The Plow, D, Brooklyn Kid, Out on Bail, Cleveland Guy, Jgb, Guam, Drunk Eli, H2O...what up?

As for this thread...the Heat acquiring T-Mac, while looking great on paper, is tantamount to the Celtics acquiring Shaq and Jermaine O'Neal. Old, tired, best years waaayyy behind them, injury prone, and still not convinced that they are no longer "THE MAN" on their respective teams. I don't know WHAT T-Mac could offer the Heat; they need a legitimate center, not another trigger happy shooting guard/small forward.

You sure he's even worth a penny now?

T Mac bum **** career was well on its way prior to NYC, he was a shoot all bum in Toronto where he could not get along with his first cousin Vinsantity (VC), then his bum **** went to bush league Orlando, then Houston all of where he was still a bum **** chucker. The Knicks felt sorry for his bum **** and tried to give' em some play, so we let his **** chuck in our arena (MSG) because we had chuckers on the Knicks who could'nt chuck with accuracy, so pundits don't get it twisted, T Mac was a bum well before he came to the Knicks and I know this fact just kills you pundits.

No, I have to disagree. T-Mac was a legitimate threat in Toronto and Houston, and in Orlando before the myriads of injuries took over. If he had been able to stay healthy, he would've been one of the great offensive weapons in the league. He was a scorer; not a pure shot because even in his heyday he had an inconsistent jumper. He was a scorer; he somehow managed to put the ball in the hoop. It was ugly sometimes, and unorthodox, but it got the job done. And when he was teamed up with Yao, for when those rare occasions that they were healthy together, they were a tough team to beat.
