Slamadaday: Tracy McGrady on Tyrus Thomas

No. 1 yanks it on T2.

No, this is definitely not vintage TMac. But the stare down afterward is. Fans will probably never see another vitriol-fueled, two-hander like the days of old, but that attitude was still there.

    The stare down was awesome!

    It’s okay, but definitely not enough to negate the fact that T-Mac has simply become a joke since his Camp Chen-a-wanda trip. That stare down ain’t fooling nobody.

    Mr. McGrady is mean spirited.

    Tyrus will not forget this. He’ll crush any next attempt so badly that T-Mac blows out all 33 vertebrae, both knees and breaks his heart all the way down to the depths of his soul.

    ^not saying that T2 is a good player or anything. Just that he is very capable of making superstars look silly with some of his blocks and dunks

  • riggs

    there was no need for the stare. unless he was trying to hide his grimace from landing on his injured leg…

    nice. That is how you look when you posterize. No howling, no twitching, no chestpound, no fist-headbumping, shimmy or motorcycle revving. Stare.down. Badass.

    Is anyone going to notify Quinton Hosley that Tyrus Thomas stole his nickname?

  • kracka

    It wouldn’t matter if Tmac dunked on Shaq people would still hate on him.

    2 things about this dunk, one, it came after Scola had a layup attempt sent into the second row, which is why Tmac stared him down. Two, while it’s a nice dunk, he still only gets going trying to respond to someone else..

    He was actually staring at the crowd, the lazy eyes fool you

    I almost expected the Rockets to stop the game, bring out a podium and Tracy to retire right there on the spot just so he could go out on a high note.

  • Tommy Vercetti

    This is the T-Mac I’m used to.

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    Tyrus Thomas wouldn’t give a sh(t that he got dunked on…Dude seems so nonchalant he probably didn’t know what city he’s playin in..@overtime,he yanked one on the pistons in the first round in 03 (?), right up there with the Bradley one!
