Remember when Michael Jordan used to call Kwame Brown "You mother****ing flaming ****** ***** ass piece of ****"?

Great moment in NBA history.

Remember Kwame's scouting report that said he can shoot threes and handle the ball like a guard

It was I that used to coin the phrase, "Me-mac" and "McGreedy"

Well what is the point of this thread? The leopard has changed his spots. I can call Dwight Howard a terrible free throw shooter today, that doesn't mean I am calling him a terrible free throw shooter in 2 years time.

TMac used to be the greediest piece of attention whoring shiiit in the NBA
-he left Toronto to be the man
-got his wish in Orlando and then threw his team under the bus

I used to hate him more than anyone else

he seems grown up, and the Jazz seem flat, looks like it is time to love TMac now that he will win a series.

That's why I gave him the name "McGreedy". He seems to understand team basketball now.

I hate that he left Toronto, they could have been so good. TMac and Vince! I loved the Pippen-Jordan similarties, and they had Oak.

Normally, I agree with everything you say, Jizzo, but I think I should come to McGrady defense here.

1) He left Toronto, mainly because he wanted to live closer to his family in Florida. Heck, I'd take the sunshine over snowstorms any day.

2) He took Orlando as far as he could take them. The plan was a duo with Grant Hill, which never materialized due to all those ankle surgeries. TMac didnt ask to be the man...he wanted somebody like Grant to shoulder the load. Management refused to provide him any help. They traded his only running mate, Mike Miller, for Drew Gooden. Lue, Garrity, Doleac, fat Kemp, Armstrong. These are the pieces of trash McGrady was expect to win with. It wasnt until he left Orlando that they drafted Dwight and had Hill healthy.

----------

Anyways, I hope that clears up some stuff. TMac's got a good team now. There are no more excuses if he cant get past round one.

Oakley was a gutter ball by then and Tracy/Carter never would of worked because they both need the ball to be effective. So good

That Orlando team was horrible but I remember when they traded for Gooden and Giricek and they both averaged some great numbers. Gooden was looking he'd become a great player and Giricek was scoring like 14 ppg.
They called them double G or something.

But idiots never developed, now it looks like Jerry West won the trade because Miller has become better than both.

****in Giricek. He was looking good in his rookie season.

In all of history, only Iverson scored more than him in his first game in the NBA .

Garbage. Why didnt he want to stay there then? Why demand a trade?

The Magic owner was talking trash about McGrady, publicly through the media, as you may recall. The team was losing, TMac wasnt getting any help, no trades in the works, no useful draft prospects, and of course, his back started acting up. What do you do, Ced? Do you stay and get your nuts stomped on, or do you move on and team up with the greatest center in the league?

Yeah. All that. Plus the sunshine.

BTW, it depends on the player. Ask KG what to do in such situations and you'll hear a different answer. It may be attributed to him preferring snow though.

I stay with my team, I'm not a quitter. I keep playing m yarse off no matter what, I may try alienate a few teammates though and/ or play devil's advocate by convincing them they are underappreciated/ underpaid and suggesting they ask for a trade.
