Tracy McGrady Thinks He`ll Be an All-Star Again

T-Mac is a dude with a lot of wishes (and some say, delusions) these days. The NY Times has the latest: “Whether he will take the next step in New York or elsewhere is unclear, but he is certain of this much: He is not ready to fade into obscurity. ‘There’s no question I will be an All-Star,’ McGrady said. ‘Not right now, but next year when I come into the season, I will be an All-Star-caliber player, there’s no question.’ He added, for emphasis, ‘I will be myself next year.”’

    First. My man MAc

    How many years is he gonna say this before he realizes its over?

  • Brickshooting J

    Perhaps he meant that he hopes to be invited to the Legends Game in the next All Star Weekend. There is a Lengends (as in old, retired, former players) Game, isn’t it?

    Stop putting a mic in front of this man! He’s starting to scare me. Got love for the Mac but come on son!

  • Fat Lever

    Peter, exactly. He said the same thing about how his knee was completely healed a few weeks before the trade to the Knicks, and then like 3 games into his Knicks tenure, he said something to the effect of bear with him because his knee isn’t 100%.

    He won’t be an All-Star if he leaves Yao Ming for Orlando.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he did come out and play at an all-star level next season. IF his body holds up (and that’s a big IF), he’ll be a nice addition somewhere.

    If he wanted, he could lead the league in scoring every season.

    I wish he was right.

    If G.Hill could make a comeback and started in ASG a few years ago, then why not Mac? But perhaps he should go to the Suns and let their trainers work their magic first….

  • max

    T-Mac has Marbury Mode on.

  • Tommy Patron

    I like how he back-tracked within the space of two sentences, from All-Star to All-Star caliber. He must be counting on retaining all of his Chinese fans.

    Someone needs a drug test STAT!

    Sometimes players just need to let the ego go. There’s no shame in saying, “Yeah, I’m older and my body doesn’t hold up like it used to. I hope to come back healthy and ready next year to contribute to a winning franchise and hopefully win a championship. I’ve got a few years left in the tank still.”

    TMAC IS BACK ! ! ! !

    What are yall talking about he not Mac from 03 but he was damn near a all star this year playing in like 3 games. As long as fans can vote he can be all star.

    Piggy backing on Thomas’ comment, TMac needs to go the Phoenix and let the trainers there revitalize his career. I think he can come back and be an important part of a contending team as long as his minutes are monitored and he doesn’t have to carry the team.

    Join the Nets. They have a Chinese player on the team which should just about do it.

    he’s delusional.

  • Yesse

    I’m sure he will get voted in again.

  • J

    @thomas: Hill made it back to the ASG when he was in orlando.

  • youngmuggsy

    @J: I’m pretty sure he’s aware of that, it’s just that the sun’s trainers have a pretty good track record of fixing up injured players.

  • http://www.springbored.net letsmotor

    i’d say there’s about a 50/50 chance of this happening. he’s had some very good games with the knicks. but there are always those injuries…

  • Teddy-The-Bear

    @doyouwantmore hahahaha VERY TRUE!

  • Jose

    Big words…..Hope he backs em up.

  • http://www.twitter.com/JoshElam JE

    seriously, he was almost voted a starter this year. you’re delusional if you think he won’t be an all-star again.

    11:53 am was the imposter. I’m apparently sharing a commenter’s name right now.
