I'll never forgot McGrady basically playing 1v5 against us in the 2001 playoffs. Such incredible ability before his body gave out.

Even Blake Griffin disproves of that flop. That dude is going to get lit up next time round.

Glad T-Mac made dude put on some community theatre.

On a related note, I've been digitally urging Joe Alexander to go home and play in China for many years now. It's finally happened.

The title of this thread should have been: T-Mac demands respect.

I miss Orlando T-Mac.

T-Mac in his prime was like some sort of crazy mix of Durant and LeBron. Third favorite player to watch ever behind rookie TJ Ford and Tim Duncan.

T-Mac was probably my favorite player to watch, ever. Under-rated passer. He spent all those years with Hill and Yao injured, and had to do all the scoring himself.

That guy was ridiculously long, coordinated, smooth, and athletic. But his court vision was insane too, and he handled better than most pg's. Ridiculous instincts. JVG used to comment on how T-Mac really didn't even have to practice very much to be great.

That brings up the downside, though. He didn't practice enough to live up to his potential, and was notoriously neglectful of the rehab he was supposed to be doing for his back and knees. Just like his cousin VC, he had so much raw talent that he didn't have to work to become one of the greatest players alive, and he wasn't intrinsically motivated to become one of the greatest ever. Had he been, he could have been as good as MJ in my opinion.
When you're spinning your wheels in mud, sometimes you have to put the car in reverse. If you refuse to do so on principle, you're an idiot.
