Tracy McGrady says he will be back next season with a vengeance: ‘It’s really no comparison to how I feel now and I how felt trying to play all of last season,’ McGrady said. ‘My knee is feeling extremely strong. The most important thing is I’m confident in it. You guys just stay tuned. I’m out here grinding in Chicago, trying to get back right, but yes I will be playing for the Rockets in the ’09-10 season. I will be in uniform for the Rockets this upcoming season, I guarantee you that, and I will be a lot better than I was last year. I will be back to the player that I once was. I will guarantee you that.”‘
