Default How will people remember T-Mac when his career is over?

Tracy McGrady, is one of the top players in this current generation.





Lets just say he never gets out of the first round when his time is up, how will people look at his career.


His first two seasons in Toronto, he was stuck on the bench and didn't really get playing time until his third season there. By that time time he was a top bench performer, a good defender and was a major part of the offense with cousin Vince Carter. He was also looking to go elsewhere and packed up to head home doen to Florida to be part of an Orlando Magic duo hat included superstar Grant Hill.


Well we'll never know what that duo would have accomplished in Diseny Land. But there, Tracy turned into one of the best all-around players in the leauge. He became a 4 time All-Star, mutlipe All-NBA teams and a two time scoring champ. But the one thing he was knocked and critized on was his lack of playoff success.


So one duo was ending as another was beggining. He joind up and coming big man Yoa Ming to form (what critics said) was the new coming of Shaq & Kobe. The first season in Houston, the Rockets win 51 games and faced Dallas in round one and were beat in 7. The next season was probally T-Mac'[s worst since he became a superstar. Injured for much of the season (along with Yao) they missed the post season.


This season lost of folks were on to the new generation of stars as they predicted McGrady's back wouldn't hold up, he proved them wrong to lead the Rockets to a 52-20 record. But once again they were gone in 7.


So if Tracy's carrer continues to go the way it has been (I hope not) what will be the talk on Tracy after his playing days are finished?

i will remember him as a great scorer who got injured and was never able to win anything.. unless ofcourse he gets out of the first round sometime in the near future.

As a second round virgin. Just kidding. Probably about the same way people remember DR.J. A guy who had all the talent in the world but couldn't win a ring. They were both at times considered the best player in the league but weren't fortunate enough to win a championship. Yes, I'm well aware that Mcgrady still has the oppurtunity to win a ring.

and are you aware that Dr. J DID win a ring?

And there is still a big middle ground in between "not getting a ring" and "not getting out of the first round". If Iverson never wins a ring he shouldn't be grouped with Tmac cause at least he's willed his team to some playoff series wins and has gone further.

If I remember correct Dr. J won a ring with the Sixers in 1982 (was it 1982?), and I think he won several ABA championships. T-Mac isn't on Dr. J's level of talent though.

EDIT - Damn you Kizzle, and everyone else who posted that before me.
