Out of everyone, TMac says in best in regards to the Miami situation:

Quote:
Tracy McGrady says LeBron James would have been better off signing with the Bulls, according to a report in The New York Daily News.

"[Chicago] was a better decision, a better place for him," McGrady told the Daily News. "You can't just go somewhere and have that type of chemistry he had in Cleveland."

McGrady's Pistons played the Knicks in a double-overtime battle on Sunday afternoon.

He said one of the reasons the Heat are off to a disappointing 9-8 start is the chemistry of James and Wade on the court.

"When they're on the court together, they're terrible," McGrady said. "Him and D-Wade don't complement each other. They're somewhat the same type of players, 'Bron and D-Wade. ... Both of those guys need the ball, and they don't shoot the ball like Ray Allen. That's why they're having trouble scoring in the halfcourt, because they can't get a rhythm, because one of them is dominating the ball. That guy might be getting off, but the other guy [isn't].

"That's why when they're on the court together, they're terrible. They're rhythm players that need the ball. I'm like that. I can't stand out there and catch and shoot. I've never been a guy that sits out there waiting for the ball to come to me."

Time to hang them up Twac. Just silly calling your peers terrible. To much time on his hands as a current player, he should be keeping that opinion to himself until he becomes a broadcaster. Their is a certain level of respect you're supposed to have for your opponents and teammates as a fellow player, and TMac has simply never been smart enough to keep his mouth closed when asked to compromise that respect.

"You can't just go somewhere and have that type of chemistry he had in Cleveland."

And yet he could of had that chemistry in Chicago? DRose could of been the "Ray Allen". It would of been no problem for him?

TWAC.

I agree that Lebron isn't going to get the same kind of chemistry, AFTER ONE MONTH. I mean I thought they would still be likely to win a ton of early games. But instead they played a lot of top teams and came up just short. It's not like it would take a whole different worldview to bring success in any of those games. It's not like they are going to have to look at giving electric shock therapy to one or all of the big three in order to have them mesh enough and stop working against each other. If they just clean up a few things, like Wade not even assuming a proper defensive stance too often, or Lebron embracing a new role a bit more, or Bosh getting a little more hungry getting after some of those misses, then they are laughing. But none of that is going to happen in an instant. They are still going to have to try to get by on sheer talent until they click a little more, and get a better idea of what a complete game looks like. And then it will be about playing their game and repeating a proven formula.

That's something T-Mac has never figured out. He's never gone beyond seeing where talent alone can get him, even though time and again it hasn't gotten him far at all. If these three guys in Miami end up being as absurdly dense as this one guy that has bounced all over the league, from failure to failure, to failure, then they deserve enormous heaps of ire - yes ire. But the last I checked, there are a few pages to be flipped on the old calendar before we get to April and May.

Twac is playing for a bad team scoring 4 points in 16 minutes. What are you thinking TWac? If Miami is terrible..what does TWac think of his own team? What does he think of himself? Does he go into games thinking his team is going to lose....Oh wait, it's Twac..of course he does.

Do your teammates a favour, hang them up, and disappear.

T-Mac and VC complimented each other nicely back in the day....

Too bad that didn't stop T-Mac from bolting so he could be "da man".

If Duncan is only going to avg 29 min/gm for the regular season teams should be VERY worried come playoff time.

Breakout year from the former Buckeye. I was surprise he really struggle early on but he has finally found his spot in Memphis and I love it. Now only if Oden can do the same next year in the NBA somewhere.

I'm just tuning in, I hope he saved something special for the final minutes.

And cue Tony Parker, sitting on the bench looking glum.
