Tracy McGrady Sucks

Sorry for the strong language in the title, everyone, but after watching last night's first round game between the Jazz and the Rockets, I just felt it needed to be said in no uncertain terms. Tracy McGrady is awful.

It's no secret that I don't particularly enjoy Mr. McGrady. I guess I just hate those guys that are too big for their britches. Plus, I hate that we have to put up with the "Tracy McGrady hasn't made it out of the first round of the playoffs ever- Will he do it this year?" storyline. It's like the Ben Olson/UCLA story: It's getting old.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the Jazz will be the ones to dash his hopes again this year, but it still bugs me how McGrady gets all the press.

Last night's game, though, revealed so much more about McGrady to hate. Tracy McGrady had 20 points last night, with zero coming in the fourth quarter. ZERO.

He also grabbed bench with about 2 minutes left to play in the game, giving up on his team all together.

Talk about a guy with no heart. If I was a Rockets fan I'd be ticked off. What happened to the superstar? Why did he disappear when his team needed him most? The answer is because these prima donna superstar guys are all the same. If they don't get whatever they want whenever they want it, they pout, they whine and they go home. The league is full of them, but Tracy McGrady is hands down the number one poster child for whiny, spoiled little babies in the NBA.

Fortunately for us Jazz fans, workhorses like Matt Harpring, Ronnie Brewer, Paul Millsap, Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer don't bring a lot of headcase baggage with them when they report to camp each fall. It feels good to be a Jazz fan.

By the way: Jazz in 5.

Like I said, McGrady is the dollar store version of Kobe Bryant. He looks like the real thing but he breaks right after you take him out of the packaging. There are a few stars worth their meddle in the NBA like Tim Duncan, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant (as much as I hate to say it), and in my opinion, you could almost throw Darron Williams in this mix.

The fake stars include Nowitski, Jason Kidd, and Vince Carter. This latter group all pay homage to Yao and McGrady. McGrady practically created the genre.

AK brings a lot of headcase baggage. Good article, though. The painting was great.

'Mello Anthony is along the same lines as T Mac, I think.

I'm back on the bandwagon and ready for a crazy hay ride. Lets get together and watch some games. What do you say?

I agree with Ross, Melo and T-mac are identical. Both score 25 points, and choke at the end of games. Neither team will get out of the first round. I had the Jazz in a sweep, but I guess they were being kind.

you guys are fucking retards...tracy mcgrady has dealt with a lot of nagging injuries..any other player in the league would be affected by back spasms...his only default is the fact that he doesnt lift weights sufficiently in order to avoid his injuries...pricks.
