This is the fifth season Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming have played together in Houston, so you'd think by now that everyone would be comfortable with their roles. Apparently not. McGrady has been privately complaining to friends in recent days about Yao taking too many shots and not being tough enough. Like McGrady has never been accused of either.

Yao not being tough enough? Lay off the pipe Tracy. You're made out of glass yourself.

Man, T-Mac is not helping his case whatsoever. 1st round curse, quitter, complainer, he should just retire or come with us for cheap.

The oft-injuried 1st round virgin will probably get traded.

Oh, the irony.

He is the last human on earth who should be talking about toughness and chucking...

T-mac = 13.3 FGA = 38.8%
Yao = 13.1 FGA = 52.8%

Shut up.

And people called me stupid for not putting Houston in the top 5 of the West this year.

That team's dynamic is just flat out wrong.

On paper, they're brilliant, but Artest alone isn't going to suddenly cure the internal and physical problems that team has had for years now.

I'll guarantee another first round exit for them this year - and the end of McGrady's tenure as a Rocket.

Just on cue, he's out for 2 weeks

"Tracy McGrady's up and down season took a downturn on Monday when the Houston Rockets decided to shut him down for two weeks.

The team announced on Monday that the guard will concentrate on physical conditioning after last spring's knee surgery has limited his ability to practice and play in games".

Got to admit I'd thought they would be much better...

But this story is great. :lol:

Sorry, but Yao is much more valuable than T-Mac. I would much rather have Yao not play and T-Mac play, rather than the other way around. Looking at their team though, they are extremely deep.

Kobe quit on his team

T-Mac quit on the sport of basketball

Huge difference
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Kobe never quit. He would've quit if he didn't show up. He still was a professional about it, showed up, did his thing and kept on trying to win despite his unhappiness.

He quit in that Suns series, and made the whiny hiss fit to leave. That's quitting. He still would have played, but we would have eventually had to trade him if we couldn't get a good move.

T-Mac just flat out got fat and sucks now.
