Good Move by the Spurs!
Despite all the fans who have given up on T-Mac’s abilities years ago, I still believe he has a ton of game left in the tank. This appears to be a strategic move by the San Antonio Spurs after waiving Small Forward Stephen Jackson. I would take McGrady over Jackson any day of the week. The only concern I have for Tracy McGrady is his defense – he isn’t known for having great defensive skill but he is a player that can create his own shot.
According to T-mac.com, Tracy McGrady spent most of the 2012-13 season playing for Qingdao of the Chinese Basketball League. In 29 games he averaged 25.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.55 steals in 31.6 minutes.
Tracy McGrady’s NBA career began as a Toronto Raptor but he experienced most of his success as a member of the Houston Rocket where he was a 7-time NBA All-Star and a NBA scoring champ during both the 2003 and 2004 NBA seasons.
McGrady was also a member of the Orlando Magic, Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks and the Detroit Pistons; unfortunately he has never been a part of a NBA team that could advance past the first round of the playoffs. The Spurs will face the Houston Rockets during the first round of the NBA Playoffs and I expect T-Mac to get some payback from the team that traded him in 2010.
