Knicks vs Thunder at 7:30

T-Mac used to be one of my favorite players and I'm excited to see his debut with the Knicks tonight. Reports are that he'll start. He says he's close to being 100% and he's much more explosive than he was the last couple of years with the Rockets.

Let's play a little over or under for T-Mac's performance during tonight's game.

He'll play 30 minutes...
He'll score 15 points...
He'll grab 7 rebounds...
He'll pass for 5 assists...
He'll have 3 turnovers...
He'll have 2 steals...
He'll block 2 shots...

i hope as a fan of

i hope as a fan of basketball that tmac can return to what he was doing a few years ago. A prime TMac would be right in the discussion with Kobe, lebron wade and melo.

Yup, I think people forget

Yup, I think people forget how good McGrady really was..if he never got injured he would've been a top 5 player right now

But for these last 29 games, I wouldnt set the expectation bar too high, but who knows...he can pull a Jamison and go 0-12 or he can explode for 30.....you dont really know how ready he really is...just gotta wait & see

You can see he still has the

You can see he still has the skill, ball handling and passing ability. Once he gets his legs under him and his endurance up to par, he should be pretty good.

McGrady is balling right now lol.

Random Irrelevant

Random Irrelevant Thoughts:

Tracy McGrady looks just like Will Smith in Hitch

Daniel Orton looks like an obese Russel Westbrook

Oh & Yeah, T-Mac is definetly ballin, lol

Man, As a Knick

Man, As a Knick fan...they're playing defense, there scoring efficiently...man I'm really hyped for these last 30 games

Also, if McGrady plays like this for the next 30...he might be in NY next season.

The Knicks sucked the first

The Knicks sucked the first 53 games, but I am excited for the final 29 games no matter what they outcomes. This is a breath of fresh air.

Yea, but how much of a pay-cut.

He's slick by saying that because a pay-cut is what? 10 mil a season? The man makes 21 million now...

I would love T-mac for like 5yrs/35mil

T-Mac is by no means worth

T-Mac is by no means worth $7 million a year for what he does in 29 games. 29 games is not worth a 5 year deal either. I would give him 2 years guaranteed with a 3rd year as a team option for $12milion.

T-Mac knows he can't ask for

T-Mac knows he can't ask for $10 million at this stage of his career...

T-Mac is going to work! Is it just me or does he look taller than 6' 8"?

19 points and 3 assists in the first half!

I like what hes doing

T-Mac 7-12 from the field in the 1sr half is alot more than I expected from him! I like what he said at the healf about how they need to get back in transition, cause OKC killed them in the transition game.

That sounds about right... A

That sounds about right... A three year deal for about $7-10 million with a team option on the third year.

A 3 year deal for 10

A 3 year deal for 10 million? That's about...3.2 mil a season my man. McGrady won't resign.

I would love NY to keep McGrady nevertheless

We need another rebounder, I do see we need that.

yeah 3 year 10million makes

yeah 3 year 10million makes zero sense.. it would be a slap in the face. he wont get 10 million but he will get a nice amount of money. someone was right when they say people forgot tmac was good before the injury. hell while he was injuried and playing he was good and if he shows he is healthy he will get paid. and he's only 30 years old

I wonder what he will look

I wonder what he will look like when he actually get his feel for the game back. He looks a little stiff even though he's playing well.

T-Mac quote in the NY Post

"I'm a guy who has made a lot of money in my career," Tracy McGrady said. "I could retire right now. . . . Money is not an issue. [If] these guys want to bring in a LeBron [James] and D-Wade [Dwyane Wade], along with a Chris Bosh, or an Amar'e Stoudemire, I would be a damn fool to not want to stay here. "Don't get me wrong, if I come back healthy and playing well, we're going to do some negotiating," he added. "What I'm saying is, if LeBron comes, D-Wade comes and you pair [one of them] up with Stoudemire or Chris Bosh, I know I'm not going to get the big bucks. "But save a little for me, is all I'm saying."

McGrady has already said he

McGrady has already said he does not care about money and that he has enough money to retire right now so I doubt we'll have a Latrell Sprewell situation, he also said if they got a big name free agent he'd be a damn fool not accept a paycut so...

On an ordinary team, I don't

On an ordinary team, I don't think he'd take that kind of paycut... However, playing with two max deal free-agents won't be a regular team lol. I believe he'd take that paycut to play with two other superstars and play in MSG... And he understands that.
