You and the Rockets Found Out About T-Mac’s Operation Shutdown the Same Way

By reading about it through the media: “I found out like everybody else did,” Adelman said. “I think there should be a protocol there. There should be a procedure where we have a chance to sit down and talk about a situation and not (have it) announced in the press. I don’t know why that happened, why he did that. It certainly is not the way it should be handled. I saw what he said in the paper. With everything that’s gone on this year, it certainly is not the way it should have gone down. Certainly, we deserve a little bit better than having it announced in the press and not knowing exactly what went down.”

    I think i’m going to leave work for the day and then call my supervisor and advise him of this around noon. In honor of Tracy, of course.

    TMac did have the last laugh!

    There’s a very interesting article on the NBA website about how it’s difficult to ever take anything T-Mac says at face value. Well worth reading. The situation mentioned above is so ridiculous it’s funny.

    TMac is having a crisis. He can’t handle everyone calling hin out for his obvious decline, so now he decided that he’s hurt.

    apparently the VC for tmac deal was nearly done and NJ backed down after Tmac’s announcement, so there’s reason to believe tmac announced it ahead of time to block the deal.

    but why would tmac block that deal if he wasn’t gonna play anyway?
    and TAD, you’d have to announce your leave through facebook or twitter to truly honor how T-Mac does it.

    Albie, because tmac was suppose to keep getting opinions for the rest of the week, even the rockets’ owner held a press conference, the same night of tmac’s announcement, and said they’d have an update on Tmac within the next few days. The doctors are pretty much saying “you can continue to rehab, or there’s always surgery”, so surgery isn’t the only option right now. Tmac probably was leaning towards it and decided to jump the gun on the announcement to block the deal. NJ may have taken him if tmac hadn’t made up his mind by today.

    Mac just didn’t want to move and he doesn’t like cold weather.

    That’s about as unprofessional as an NBA player can get.

    please, you call New Jersey cold? You obviously don’t know what Canada’s like.
