The Heat Have Failed to Impress Tracy McGrady

by November 29, 2010

The New York press cornered T-Mac in Detroit yesterday, and got his entertaining thoughts on the Miami Heat. From Newsday and the Daily News: “You can’t just go somewhere and have that type of chemistry [LeBron James] had in Cleveland,’ said McGrady, who added that the former Cavalier would have been better off playing in Chicago with point guard Derrick Rose. ‘Him, D-Wade [ Dwyane Wade ] and [Chris] Bosh, they don’t complement each other. They’re somewhat the same type of players, ‘Bron and D-Wade … Both of those guys need the ball and they don’t shoot the ball like Ray Allen. That’s why they’re having trouble scoring at halfcourt because they can’t get a rhythm because one of them’s dominating the ball. That guy might be getting off, but the other guy [isn’t]. That’s why when they’re on the court together, they’re terrible.’ … McGrady feels that if James had made up his mind to leave Cleveland he would have been better off in Chicago with Derrick Rose as his running mate. ‘It was a better decision, a better place for him,’ said McGrady, who scored a season-high 13 points off the bench for the Pistons Sunday but was 0-for-3 after intermission.”
