Default Switch T-Mac with Rashard Lewis...What happens??

Do the Rockets get better??, do the MAgic get better??

imo I think the Rockets get better because the offense would run through Yao. Watching the Rockets over the years they seem to be just fine when T-MAc is hurt, Yao seems to actually be better...

And do the Magic get any better with T-Mac???

Orlando loses in the first round of the playoffs. That's what happens.

T-Mac needs to go back to his mindset from back in the day when he was a defensive minded player in Toronto.

Rockets record without McGrady, 13-40 ... is that just fine? Now if the Rockets added Rashard, they'd be better but not replacing him with T-Mac. Who will set up the offense.

The Rockets wouldn't get any better because Rashard can't create his own shots or demand the best defender on the other team like T-Mac does. Also, Adelman is a perimeter players coach. His offense isn't designed for Yao to play inside the box, its for Yao to be out 15-18 feet setting screens and hitting 12-15 foot shots. The Rockets do so well when T-Mac is out because Bonzi Wells steps in and is able to play without any limitations, which leads to some good and some terrible games for the Rockets.

you obviously haven't watched any rocket games without tmac. why make a thread about something u know little about??

problem is if tmac is making shots he gets doubled and adelman doesn't make adjustments.

Some people are so caught up in hating players that they forget to think. He forgot that you can almost count on one hand the players that can give you 25, 6 and 5 or close to it(Kobe, Lebron, T-Mac, VC, KG and Wade).

First of all did I say he was? All I said was he averages around 25, 6 and 5 most years like last year 25.2 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 4.8 apg. I consider him in the same class as T-Mac but not Kobe, Wade, KG and Lebron.
