09:00 AM ET 02.19 | Hawks forward Tracy McGrady's private frustrations over his playing time finally boiled over after he played just 4:39 during the 97-77 loss to the Blazers late Saturday. "I'm tired of this [bleep]," McGrady said. "You can put that in the paper, I don't give a [bleep]." McGrady didn't play after halftime against the Blazers. He didn't dress for Atlanta???s 101-99 victory at Phoenix Thursday but said it was his decision to rest for the second game of a back-to-back. Against the Blazers, McGrady never returned after Marvin Williams replaced him with 7:21 left in the first half. McGrady has played in 26 of 32 games this season for an average of 18 minutes before Saturday's game. Last season with Detroit McGrady averaged 23 minutes in 72 games. McGrady said Hawks coach Larry Drew hasn't offered him an explanation when he doesn't play him many minutes.

McGrady has always been a cancer and a moron. Very few players in the history of the league have done less with the ammount of talent McGrady once possessed.

He's still dumb enough to think he has talent to make a difference on a team... the difference he makes has been negative for years now.
He's garbage and for the most part sucking the life out of another team.
