Well, I won't go that extreme to say T-Mac is a loser.

He was doing okay in his first season with the Rockets. Slowly but surely he is mashing together with Yao Ming. He was outstanding and contributive in a lot of the games. Sometimes, however we could have wished he could be wiser in his selection of shots, but then we have to understand he had improved a lot as a playmaker than he was in Orlando Magic already.

But it was just that we may have set too high an expectation for the Rockets. They are just not yet there. The supporting cast for the Yao Magic Duo is not strong enough to carry them thru deeper into the playoff.

T-mac's 1st year was basicly as good as Hakeem, Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley and Moses Malone's 1st year as a Rocket.

He was better than Rudy T, Calvin Murphy 1st year as a Rocket.

So to call T-mac's first year as okay is doing an injustice to all those Hall of Famers.

Of course he has to be as good as those Hall of Famers in their 1st year as a Rockets. :shock:

Hakeem Olajuwon and Moses Malone were almost like rookies in their first season with the Rockets.

Both Clyde Drexler and Charles Barkley were established NBA veterans and stars when they joined the Rockets,
but obviously already over their prime. Clyde Drexler was with Portland Trailblazers for 11 seasons before joining the Rockets, and Charles Barkley was with Philidelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns for 12 seasons before joining the Rockets.

Tracy McGrady.....a 8-year NBA veteran, still has to reach his prime has to be better than the 1-year or 2-year rookie of Hakeem Olajuwon and Moses Malone, and better than those aging > 10-years veterans Charles Barkley and Clyde Drexler, who were going downslope when joining the Rockets

Therefore I don't think I am dissing T-Mac by saying he is doing okay but not great or I am doing injustice to all those Hall of Famers. :roll: :oops: :wink:

moses was in his 3rd year. And barkley was averaging 13.5 rebounds a game.. if u wantta call that over his prime then go ahead. Look up the averages before u say random crap like Clyde and Barkley were over their prime when they joined Rockets. Barkley coulda gotten a championship if freaking jazz didn't ****** it up.

Tracy Mcgrady is not a loser. He showed to be a top 5 player in the league this season by carrying the team with Yao's inconsistent play. The Rockets just lack talent and youth. Hopefully both will be adressed this offseason.
