T-Mac used to be one of my favorite players and I'm excited to see his debut with the Knicks tonight. Reports are that he'll start. He says he's close to being 100% and he's much more explosive than he was the last couple of years with the Rockets.
Let's play a little over or under for T-Mac's performance during tonight's game.
He'll play 30 minutes...
He'll score 15 points...
He'll grab 7 rebounds...
He'll pass for 5 assists...
He'll have 3 turnovers...
He'll have 2 steals...
He'll block 2 shots...
He'll play 30 minutes... Under
He'll score 15 points... Even
He'll grab 7 rebounds...Under
He'll pass for 5 assists...Under
He'll have 3 turnovers...Under
He'll have 2 steals...Under
He'll block 2 shots...Under
30 Minutes, I want to say over
15 points, Over 16 points
7 rebounds, under 4-5 rebounds
5 assists, under 3 or 4 assists
3 turnovers, under 2 turnovers
2 steals, even
2 blocks, under 0.
i hope as a fan of basketball that tmac can return to what he was doing a few years ago. A prime TMac would be right in the discussion with Kobe, lebron wade and melo.
He'll attempt 15 FG's...
He'll attempt 4 three-pointers...
He'll attempt 5 free-throws...
He'll make 45% of his FG's...
He'll make 50% of his three-pointers...
i agree perez. ill be rooting for him
Yup, I think people forget how good McGrady really was..if he never got injured he would've been a top 5 player right now
But for these last 29 games, I wouldnt set the expectation bar too high, but who knows...he can pull a Jamison and go 0-12 or he can explode for 30.....you dont really know how ready he really is...just gotta wait & see
well said. im actually suprised more knicks fans arent saying how good he is gonna be
It sounded good hearing his name announced in the starting lineup lol. I know it's not likely, but I hope he busts out his first game lol.
I don't think a Knicks game has got this much notice in the History of NBAdraft.net message boards, lol
One thing is clear... T-Mac can still pass the rock.
Count it and the Foul.
5 pts, 2 ast before hitting the bench...not bad
House can shoooooot
Eddie House doing it the right way!
lol..youre right about that knicksfan. people are probably switching between uk vs vandy and the knicks game
Mac with the attack? Man, as NY fan...I'm really hype
T-Mac is starting to look comfortable on the court.
You can see he still has the skill, ball handling and passing ability. Once he gets his legs under him and his endurance up to par, he should be pretty good.
McGrady is balling right now lol.
Count it and the Foul.
hes looking reeeeeeeeeeeeeeal good
looks like rockets did him grimey because he said he was 100% its sad if its tru
10 Points in one quarter..
Did yall see the and one Lay-up he did?
then the pass to al harrington?
He lookin good
When do they play the Rockets?
I think March 21st, but the game is in NY. They already played @Houston.
Random Irrelevant Thoughts:
Tracy McGrady looks just like Will Smith in Hitch
Daniel Orton looks like an obese Russel Westbrook
Oh & Yeah, T-Mac is definetly ballin, lol
Ha ha... So true though. That's crazy.
Man, As a Knick fan...they're playing defense, there scoring efficiently...man I'm really hyped for these last 30 games
Also, if McGrady plays like this for the next 30...he might be in NY next season.
He said he'd take a pay cut to remain with the Knicks next season too
The Knicks sucked the first 53 games, but I am excited for the final 29 games no matter what they outcomes. This is a breath of fresh air.
Knicks must lose!!!!!!
Yea, but how much of a pay-cut.
He's slick by saying that because a pay-cut is what? 10 mil a season? The man makes 21 million now...
I would love T-mac for like 5yrs/35mil
T-Mac is by no means worth $7 million a year for what he does in 29 games. 29 games is not worth a 5 year deal either. I would give him 2 years guaranteed with a 3rd year as a team option for $12milion.
Only if we knew how to box-out...
T-Mac knows he can't ask for $10 million at this stage of his career...
T-Mac is going to work! Is it just me or does he look taller than 6' 8"?
19 points and 3 assists in the first half!
T-Mac 7-12 from the field in the 1sr half is alot more than I expected from him! I like what he said at the healf about how they need to get back in transition, cause OKC killed them in the transition game.
That sounds about right... A three year deal for about $7-10 million with a team option on the third year.
A 3 year deal for 10 million? That's about...3.2 mil a season my man. McGrady won't resign.
I would love NY to keep McGrady nevertheless
We need another rebounder, I do see we need that.
yeah 3 year 10million makes zero sense.. it would be a slap in the face. he wont get 10 million but he will get a nice amount of money. someone was right when they say people forgot tmac was good before the injury. hell while he was injuried and playing he was good and if he shows he is healthy he will get paid. and he's only 30 years old
I wonder what he will look like when he actually get his feel for the game back. He looks a little stiff even though he's playing well.
"I'm a guy who has made a lot of money in my career," Tracy McGrady said. "I could retire right now. . . . Money is not an issue. [If] these guys want to bring in a LeBron [James] and D-Wade [Dwyane Wade], along with a Chris Bosh, or an Amar'e Stoudemire, I would be a damn fool to not want to stay here. "Don't get me wrong, if I come back healthy and playing well, we're going to do some negotiating," he added. "What I'm saying is, if LeBron comes, D-Wade comes and you pair [one of them] up with Stoudemire or Chris Bosh, I know I'm not going to get the big bucks. "But save a little for me, is all I'm saying."
McGrady has already said he does not care about money and that he has enough money to retire right now so I doubt we'll have a Latrell Sprewell situation, he also said if they got a big name free agent he'd be a damn fool not accept a paycut so...
Don't get me wrong, if I come back healthy and playing well, we're going to do some negotiating
He's playing well....looks like he might negotiate.
i think hes worth about 5 to 7 mill a year
Didn't see the post right above me I think I need my glasses
I looked at the standings....The Knicks are not super far off for that 8th seed! lol
yeah i dont see a latrell sprewell situation but im sure he will want a realistic about and not a leauge min for a 10 year vet or something..lol man if i would take the time and post how many players have said one thing then changed there mind at the end of the season i could fill 5 pages
On an ordinary team, I don't think he'd take that kind of paycut... However, playing with two max deal free-agents won't be a regular team lol. I believe he'd take that paycut to play with two other superstars and play in MSG... And he understands that.
Also, Knicks fans...I'm glad your here
We might be able to get something for D-Lee and still get 2 max FA's!
i will go on record and say he will not take that big of a pay cut. who ever said 5-7 thats very realistic
Count It And Foulx3
Wilson Chandler is one of those really underrated players in the NBA.
