12:12 PM ET 06.08 | Spurs veteran Tracy McGrady is finally in the NBA Finals, even though there's little chance that he plays unless there's a blowout. McGrady is grateful for the opportunity to even have a spot on the Spurs' roster, especially after how the last few years have played out. Knee injuries have derailed McGrady's career, but he also feels like he wasn't given a fair shot by several teams. ???I didn???t enjoy it because a lot was taken away from me. I felt like the ability I could display, I wasn???t allowed to do that. I felt I was lied to. I don???t want to say no names. I was lied to. Things wasn???t happening the way it was told to me. I don???t have any respect for that. I know a lot of things have been said about me as an individual and as a player. But I just speak my mind. When something is told to me and it didn???t happen that way, I???m going to speak my mind. That???s just who I am. I???ve never going to shy away from that.???

"Tracy McGrady feels like he was 'lied to' in recent years"...

What was he told? That he was worth all those millions he banked for being sidelined ergo 'worthless' for that money? I can't think of anything else worth him mentioning...

McGrady has spent so much time on the bench in a suit and tie, I thought he had gone into coaching. He's collected millions, and in 14 years, has never played a complete season. Now he's positioned himself for a ring. Any lies he's been told were justified.
