Default McGrady Quit On His Team Last Night

Or so that was the impression that was made last night versus the Raptors. Must be in the blood.

If McGrady wants to rehab his sore left knee or run off to a retreat and get his chakras back in balance, let him. If he wants to return to the club somewhere down the road in a few weeks or few months and contribute a few - or a few dozen - big buckets in a playoff game, well, they'll be appreciated. But they won't be expected.

Because with 1:16 left in the third quarter on a Friday night in Toronto, Jamario Moon's red-carpet-escort dunk slammed home a point that some of the Rockets had begun to suspect. They can never truly count on T-Mac again. Ever.

Quitting is the stain that won't wash out.

Hmmmm.... VC and T-Mac? Cousins? Maybe it runs in the family.

I'm no T-mac fan, but as a basketball fan that was pretty disheartening to see.

Looking at Yoa last night, i'm guessing he's also lied about his age?

He looked 40+

He'd be looking pretty frigging good for a 40 year old if you ask me.

Hell yea he did. he just kept on shooting and he pretty much just shot Houston out of the game. Yoa should be the guy the Rockets should build around. If they can trade T-Mac for a point gaurd they will be a good team

It's true, Jack was all over him on the telecast as well, T-Mac used to be a wicked defender, he's a pylon now.

How many times has Jamario blown by guys for a dunk this year? i think that was the first i'd seen. maybe t-mac's bored and he needs something new to do. i hear future shop is hiring.

Sadly he was my 1st fav raptors, and i'll always have a soft spot for him, i felt ashamed watching him play last night, and more ashamed at this post game interview, where's the fire McGreatness?? Where is the heart, get outta the facking 1st round, stop pointing at teammates, especially when you have one of the hardest working, most dominating bigs in the league on your team.

I've actually never even seen him in a Raptors uniform. So um.. Except for the 13 in 35 seconds (or somewhere along the lines of that) I don't remember him for anything else other than like an Iverson. Allstar never won anything.

Chauncy!

So where are all the people that were dripping for vince and tmac to lead our team to a championship at? This is why most of us don't like either of them... it's not lack of talent, it's lack of heart.

Didn't Mcgrady say something about how he gave up on Orlando?
When he was down there during that horrible season?

Practice? we talkin' about practice? We sittin' in here, we're supposed to be talkin' about McGrady, and we in here talkin' about practice...


Seriously though, it kinda takes away from our win knowing that the other team didn't really try

But that won't completely stop me from enjoying it.
