Favorite player of all time. One of the smoothest perimeter players I've ever seen, especially in his prime. Similar to Durant right now, in a way, but T-Mac had phenomenal court vision for a guy his size.

Favourite player my a mile. His smooth and almost effortless looking game appealed to me. I didn't start watching the NBA religiously like I do until about 2003, but as soon as I started watching T-Mac, I knew he was going to be my favourite.

Amazing player to watch from 2001-2005. Great ball-handler, excellent passer, very long and athletic, good mid-range and long range shooter who could catch fire from anywhere at any time, nice moves and footwork and capable of doing anything he wanted on the court. He was grabbing 8 rebounds when he was younger, and could be a lockdown defender and guard multiple positions when he put his mind to it. He made it look as easy as any prolific offensive player you'll see. 2003 was really when we saw what he could do. He was hot and put it together pretty much that entire season. Only modern shooting guards you could say have played better than 2003 T-Mac aside from Jordan are Kobe and Wade, and T-Mac's peak was comparable to Wade's, imo.

I agree to some extent with the Durant comparison as far as how easy he made it look. Both can/could shoot a 27 footer over someone and you pretty much expect it to go in. Though T-Mac was the better ball-handler and more athletic while Durant is longer and the better shooter.

So F'ing smooth.....

- He reminded me of Pippen so much.....as far as Body type and most of his skillset.

- T MAC was obviously a more talented Shooter....at his peak he was much watch televison...


except when Joe Millionaire was on.

I'm not one for namecalling but if tha'ts all you remember TMac for then you're a f*ckin idiot and it's your own loss for blocking one of the most exciting and electrifying players in history out of your memory.
