T-Mac’s Zenith: When the Basketball Court Was His Oyster

_______

Seriously. Some of these shots by Tracy McGrady are flat-out absurd. Note the reverse layup.

Good players were far and few between for McGrady.

Good memories, if only there had been some good players around him.

Ball hoggish?

No. McGrady was keeping the Orlando Magic in the game almost all by himself even though they ultimately lost Game 2. McGrady did the same thing in Game 1 against the Pistons, and the Magic won.

T-Mac was mean indeed. However, it seems almost appropriate that most of the plays showed were uniquely ball hoggish and the Magic appeared to have lost the game.

I didn't. I clearly stated I was judging McGrady on his time spent with the Magic, not with the Rockets. Nevertheless, thanks for the kind words.

@capitalBOSS

Agreed.

Note the box score, this game underscores the reason why LeBron did the best thing by leaving Cleveland for Miami...look at Tracy today, a great player when he was healthy and alone, he still remains RINGLESS.

Eddy, great write-up, and I agree that McGrady's prime was unfairly wasted. Everything you wrote applies to the Orlando era. But if you meant that final sentence to cover his whole career? From a Houston fan's perspective, it's tough to do such a thing. Too many pain-in-the-ass moments to forget.

More like T-Mac day, but close enough!

@Ryan

Yeah, McGrady carried the team until his body literally gave out on him.

T-mac was amazing with the Magic. I always liked Penny Hardaway but our roster's so bad and T-mac carried to the team with every limb.

I'm digging T-Mac week. He might be my favorite player to watch in my lifetime. When he was on.... it was something to see.
