Thanks assclown. My point still stands. He'll be remembered the same way as DR.J. Once in a while, his name will pop up in discussions.

still counting the ABA

I think Dr. J is a top fifteen all time player, TMac is a top fifteen player now

big difference

A guy who can shoot over your face anyday and a guy who had a combination of every skillset today. Most underrated situation from t-mac was that 13 in 35 game. Most memorable game, ever.

well, he SHOULD be, but casual fans won't.

Pierce has had least had a ECF run, and he plays with more heart. He coulda quit on the Celtics the last two years like Tmac did in Orlando.

Numbers are similar, individual accomplishments are similar, sure Tmac is a better individual talent, but Pierce has had some playoff runs, Tmac doesn't.

he will be remembered more as an NBA video game character than an actual NBA player cause he failed to realy make anything but 2nd place and never broke the ice with a good team.

Modern day Dominique Wilkins.

Great player, exciting to watch, lots of individual recognition without team success.

He'll be remembered as Grant Hill-esque. All the talent, injury problems, desire and toughness questions...

A dominant scorer who is far from a one-dimensional player. 13 in 30 seconds would probably be the most memorable play in years.

The early 2000's Orlando Magic was a good team? :

I don't think you can question Hill's desire or toughness. Hill could have easily thrown in the towel, but he's still fighting. Also, Hill was better in his prime than T-Mac has ever been.

You sure? Grant Hill was unquestionably talented back then, but you can't compare Grant Hill's prime to Tracy's Orlando days. So, you got to omit Hill.

I have the utmost respect for Tracey McGrady. That is really too bad about not getting out of the first round. He has come tantalizingly close a couple of times. This past season his assist and rebound numbers were especially great. He is just such a great talent. He is a great all around player and I will forever think of him as that, regardless.

Another question, will he be labeled as a loser or as someone who didn't have enough help?

If he never makes it past the first round he will be remembered as the player that had so many accomplishment in terms of numbers but just could win in the playoffs.

If he does end his career without making the second round I will be very disappointed.
