why is everyone making such a big deal out of this? when was the last time tmac was relevant? he wasnt even considered one of the best players in the chinese league...
It's a big deal because once upon a time he showed the potential to be an all-time great, and he gained a ton of fans along the way. In the early 2000s he was viewed by many as a taller, more gifted version of Kobe.
I'm just hoping for the highly unlikely event in which TMac suddenly re-visits peak mode, averages 25ppg and leads to Spurs to the finals, only to lose to the Heat in 7.
yet this is coming from the same guy who thinks Dallas beating an even younger, less experienced, and lower seeded OKC team in 2011 was some sort of miracle.
Anyways, I'm indifferent on the T-Mac signing. It entirely depends on him, what kind of role he's looking to take and how much he has "left in the tank". I do wonder what the Spurs see in him.
You should not be indifferent as a Spurs fan. It is a big deal because T-Mac is going to wreak havoc on the Spurs when he isn't given a starting role and major create drama and chemistry issues. One thing is for sure, T-Mac is going to want his minutes. He wants to prove that he can still match up against Kobe. The Lakers chances of beating the Spurs just went up.
