T-Mac Has Motivated the Cavs

Way to go, Tracy: “It’s not LeBron’s strength and speed or Cleveland’s interior defense that’s pushing the Cavaliers over the Pistons in the first-round series. Pistons fans can blame injured Rockets guard Tracy McGrady for the 0-2 hole. ‘I read the quote T-Mac had in the paper,’ Cavs guard Mo Williams said in an ESPN.com article. ‘Saying the Lakers are going to win it, saying we’re good but we’re not great. That don’t do nothing but fuel us. It fuels us to get better than we are. We don’t get the respect we deserve. We know that.’”

    …marking the first time in his career that T-Mac will have an influence beyond the first round of the playoffs.

    tmac should just crawl in a hole and die… to bad he doesnt do anything right… he’d prolly just hurt himself.

    Ryan, nah… he’s helped a few teams reach the second round in the past. Opposite teams, but still.

    tmac is talking a lot for someone who’s never gotten past the first round.

    as long as tmac wins a championship next season he can talk all he wants to bad the chances of him coming back are close to impossible

    he’s been interviewed too much lately, clearly the work of an agent trying to keep his client fresh in everyone’s minds. now he’s suddenly motivated to prove he’s still good. i actually hope it works so we can get decent trade value for him.

    These weren’t new T-Mac quotes. but continue the raggin on and on and on en. Wrote that yeah, only the Cavs would need to feel offended and thus get motivated in the big OG T-mac interview write up.
