    I'm not sure anything like that will ever happen again. Watching on TNT. T-MAC with one of the greatest moments in basketball history on national television.

    Just saw on ESPN where McGrady is saying he's better than half of the players in the NBA right now.

    This dude needs to PLEASE SHUT HIS FREAKIN PIEHOLE!!!

    I was at BW3s on a first "date-ish" with my now wife. I had just met her the other night, coincidentally, at a Rockets game, and said the night of this game, "Hey, want to watch the game at BW3s?"

    We watched in amazement, as it happened. I even made a wager with her that I never intended to pay since a comeback just seemed too impossible. But I kept my word and married her, haaa, kiddin'.

    I didn't know it was 10 years ago, until last night my wife tells me, "10 years ago, 13 in 35 happened, happy first date anniversary."

    Well, think about it. On each team, how many good players do you have out of a 13 man roster? On average, let's say 2-3 good starters and a good 6th man. Or go as far to say every team has 5 good starters and a good 6th man which is stretching it. Let's say McGrady is not as good as any of those people. It's not a stretch to think he MIGHT be better than the rest which make up more than half the league.

    That is some poor reasoning toward reducing down a highlight and in justifying bitterness

    96% of highlights and moments lead to "just one" win. Or a highlight is one SINGLE PLAY within a game. Itd mean that only 5 total highlights a YEAR are even relevant enough for commending, cuz its "whatd it lead to anyway". Which means nothing within a sub .500 season would even mean anything so why even watch

    13 in 35 is an AMAZING exceedingly RARE occurence that we might not see happen again in some of our lifetimes. Dont have to be a fan to appreciate the uniqueness of it

    two things

    1) the closing line up of reece gaines, andre barrett, yao, tmac and scott Padgett. ( I know sura fouled out) but 2 super stars and scrubs

    2) that was a great play that probably wont be repeated for a while but (a) he never got out of the first round and (b) HE QUIT ON THE TEAM.

    Showed more heart in 35 seconds than Harden has in his whole career.

    Harden is no where the player T-Mac was.

    Offensively they are comparable, but T-Mac was elite on defense. I remember he was guarding prime Dirk in playoffs and almost shut him down.

    Meanwhile, Harden AWOLs on defense not only on every night but on every possession.
