McGrady unsure whether Rockets want him

Quote:
After months of growing discord and mistrust between the Houston Rockets and their once-franchise player, Tracy McGrady and coach Rick Adelman engaged in an emotional and sometimes loud closed-door confrontation about the star’s uncertain status on Wednesday night, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The argument was precipitated when McGrady arrived at the Target Center in Minneapolis so determined to have a substantive discussion with his coach that he dressed in his game uniform and undertook his pregame routine as though he hadn’t been activated after missing 41 straight games with microfracture surgery on his left knee.

As McGrady walked back to the locker room after shooting with his teammates on the court, he passed Adelman in a corridor and his appearance in uniform appeared to surprise his coach. The fact McGrady had asked the equipment manager to bring out his uniform – especially on the Nov. 18 date that he had recently told Yahoo! Sports was his target for a return – clearly had his coach’s attention.

McGrady understood he wouldn’t be activated on Wednesday night, but sources say T-Mac was willing to go to great lengths to push his coach closer to blessing McGrady’s return to the team.

Eventually, Adelman returned to the locker room and retreated with McGrady into an adjacent coach’s office. McGrady slammed the door behind him, a witness said, and that marked the start of a tense, sometimes loud exchange that could be heard in the locker room, sources said.

um, memo to Tmac... the rockets are paying you $25 million dollars to sit around all day and "rehab". are you seriously confused that they dont want you?
would you 'want' you?

i am a little confused as to why they dont want him to play though.... why would they hold him back?

I'd like to see him clear doctors and finally get off the inactive list. Then when he is suited up I'd like coach just use him for garbage time for like the rest of the season.

I'd pay to see that

The Rockets winning percentage is better without McGrady in the lineup the last four years than with him in the lineup.

While I would love you to support that statement with a source, this year is different given that Yao is out and Ron Artest is gone.

well imagine a healthy t-mac in t.o
and we could try to get iverson too because i think he can relay help this as a start he is well respected by reefs and the league as that what Toronto lack respect...... and he can still score 30 point a night

line up

starters back ups

iverson Jose Calderon
Hedo Marco Belinelli
Tracy Andrea Bargnani
Bosh DeMar DeRozan
Reggie Evans Amir Johnson

and still we have jack Antoine Wright Sonny Weems pops

think what can happen thes player are power house

championship with this line

iverson and t-mac are a good fit even if iverson is a bad guy that what t.o need a bad guy too much nice people if you know what i mean

A 7'0" 250LBS man at small forward? Reggie Evans starting at center? I just threw up a little in my mouth.
