Tracy McGrady Wants to Play in Orlando Again

T-Mac tells the NY Post that he wouldn’t mind going back home to Florida again this summer:  “Of course because it’s home, that’s home,’ McGrady said yesterday before the Knicks’ 118-90 loss to the Blazers at Rose Garden. ‘I hated it that I left. I hated I left because I established myself there and made a name for myself. It was a situation where the GM [John Weisbrod] that was there made a huge mistake.’ Weisbrod, whose has since been fired, traded McGrady in 2004 in a deal for Steve Francis. ‘They got him out of there because he was out of his mind,’ McGrady said of Weisbrod … ‘I think it’s possible they’ll get back to The Finals,’ McGrady said. ‘And if you add me to the mix, I like Orlando. We’ll see.”‘

    I would love to see this…if only to see a player get booed by the home team every time he touches the ball.

  • Michael Scorn

    Orlando would rather get past the first round.

    @Michael Scorn ftw!

    Michael Scorn has shut down this comments session.

    I would appreciate it if nobody else would even try to top that comment. Thanks and goodnight!

  • Rico

    I can top that comment no doubt……..Orlando only wants players that have boy names! Burn!

    I 100 percent agree blue is tmac goofy enough to disrespect one of the only teams that wanted his bum ass

    lmaO! classic comment, must I put an @?

    I know playing for NY is depressing, but does it make you delusional now? Hey T-Mac, you’re barely relevant right now, and you have to prove yourself all over again. The last thing you should be doing is daydreaming about playing in ideal situations next year, unless you’re willing to make like $3M next year. The first thing you should be doing is re-establishing yourself as someone who can help a contender get over the hump. Dont know how that’s possible given his track record. He’s like the championship kryptonite to Dwight’s Superman.

    so..he wants to be on the same team as his cuz again?

  • Yesse

    Maybe he wants to play with his cousin.

    Oh my God, this would be epic! They could have the nickname the Gruesome Twosome… both settling for 25 foot jumpers, and each missing 25-40 games in the season. Orlando needs to make this happen.

    McGrady plays like he’s 45 years old now, and it’d be classic to see Stan Van Gundy’s face as they shoot a combined 7-25. And maybe get to the line 2 times each.

  • matt

    i think the best place for t-mac is phoenix, i mean now he looks like 45, but steve nash is 36 and looks like 26 and grant hill also. there they know how to keep the players on the court.

  • Isaac

    VC & TMAC would be sick.. family playing together

  • ryandeahn

    Yo Tracy that was SIX years ago! Bitter much?

    headline: mcgrady wants to play where ever he can get a contract

  • The Philosopher

    McGrady still hasn’t gotten over himself at all.

    Shout out to Dave Corzine.

    Tmac should join forces with Starbury and Franchise.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    I thought he burnt a lot of bridges on his way out?? Thats like Marbury saying he wouldnt mind playing for the knicks again..

  • Double J

    lmao @ seven duece!

    Don’t wish that McGrady bum on the Suns. Don’t you wish that evil on me Ricky Bobby.

  • Shem

    Rico’s not funny, why is he saying this DURING the season? Like is he f**kin stupid? On the offseason, alright but he’s gonna be playing tomorrow getting booed by absolutely everyone. This guys an idiot.. that’s why they traded him. And when Tmac said I established myself in Orlando.. umm you never won a playoff series and just got a couple scoring titles.

  • rainman10

    Hey when was the last time Vince Carter missed more than 25 games in a season?? Oh ya he has only missed that many games ONE TIME IN HIS WHOLE CAREER. 7 years ago with Toronto…why do people think he is injury prone???

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Mac is wack.

  • robb

    Orlando is not big enough for VC and TMac
