It's not like being strong and dominant matters for much anymore in the league anyway, they just happened to verse a team in the first round that was clearly better then them.
Why did you quote me?? I never said he was bad I said he was soft.... I gave Yao props in my last post, I think he is a good player.

I swear some of you all have trouble comprehending stuff. lolo

Really, who backs Kobe at shooting gaurd at the all star game? Mcgrady.

I would say McGrady is the second best at his position. You know nothing about basketball, it's really sad coming onto a board and saying something so stupid as Tmac isn't a top 10 at SG.

Wrong on both count

Yao is TOP 1 in his position. Name another center in the league currently better then Yao? There is none at all.

McGrady isn't top 10? Serious? Enlighten everyone, name 10 SG's better then McGrady?

You have no appreciation for the type of skill it takes to do what T Mac does night in and night out.
Dude loses in the first round every year....he is used to losing..hahaha

seriously though.... There is no comparison between Kobe and Mcgrady you are just out of your mind. Kobe has 3 rings

Oh yeah tell you what....If Kobe had Yao on his team he wouldn't be losing in the first round that is for sure.

Are you being sarcastic about Yao being number 1 at his position? Duncan plays center, he is not a PF. So that means Duncan>Yao.

Your out of your mind. How many teams don't even make it to the playoffs. Every year all but 1 team can be called losers. That's just a stupid thing to talk about McGrady not making it out of the first round. He hasn't been healthy and has ran into teams that were better. Carlos Boozer was owning Yao, and Deron Williams was killing. Kobe can't seem to make it past the first round either with out Shaq. Yao is no Shaq either.

Mcgrady doesn't play primarily SG... he plays SF also...

Iverson
Kobe
Rip
Arenas
Davis
Kidd
Redd
Nash

I know people say that, but he is compared to players like Shaq and Wilt. The only reason he is playing PF is because he can shoot. I think of players like Rasheed and KG as PF's, not Duncan. Duncan alway plays D of the opposing teams centers, but it's retarded he gets to be called a PF.

First of all...No, he is a SG..Period. I don't know where you got the idea that they are all grouped into one but that's wrong. You your self said he wasn't a top 10 SG, not gaurd. Let me just compare him to your list though.


Iverson Hellllllllll noooooo!!!!!!!
Kobe He's better than Tmac
Rip Hell No
Arenas Hell No
Davis Hell No
Kidd Hell No
Redd Hell No
Nash Hell No
K-Mart Hell No
J. Johnson Hell No
Parker Hell No
AI#2 Hell No


The only 2 players that are in T Macs league are Kobe and Pierce.

He is a loser you play this game to win...bottom line. If he ever wins then great but until he does is will be labeled a loser. This game is all about winning...do you not understand that?? Why must you try to make excuses for him? I can name a lot of players that have had similar carer stats as him but you probably wouldn't of ever heard of any of them...know why? because people don't remember who come in 2nd.

I'm starting to think your opinions are purposely so off base to get a reaction. Your list of players better than Tmac is as bad as it gets. If only more people to were come into this thread and look at it your going to get a lot of these: and

What? Both Rasheed and KG have great inside games. He might not be your prototypical Power Forward, but dude, HE IS a FORWARD.

Dude you're an idiot.

3/4 of these guys are PGs. I asked for SGs. SG is a position. I don't care about 'these days' either. SG is a SG not just a guard.
