    I wanted to trade him. And for the right player(s)...I still would. So, do I eat like half a crow? Maybe a wing? :)

    unless you give me a kobe/lebron, no group of players will help us win a ring even when yao is healthy. and you're not going to get those guys.

    No one is under the impression that he is the best player in the league but I can't see a single reasonable trade for both teams involving tmac, regardless of salaries.

    If the Lakers got Gasol for what they gave up, pretty much anything is possible whether you/I/we can see it or not.

    And to be clear, I never rooted against Tracy or anything, and I never wanted to give him up for a bag of peanuts. In fact I've made more than one tribute video for the guy in the past couple of years. I want very badly for him to succeed here, but I've had issues with him at times for sure.

    Actually, at the last game I went to, I turned to my dad after Tracy hit an off balance jumper and I said "You know...I've never liked his shot selection, but I finally realize that I'm just going to have to live with it. He is who he is."

    And right now, he's amazing.

    I wanted to trade Rafer Alston for Kobe Bryant. But Morey wanted a first round draft pick too. Damn you Morey!!!

    Oh wait... this thread is about Tracy.... my bad :D

    Respect to TMac.

    He dominates when necessary. He sets up his teammates. He goes to the rack. He nails cold blooded threes. He chooses his moments.

    And he now has the intensity all around him that balances out his cool demeanor.

    TMac, you are so unbelievable every night, that we think you can do everything whenever you want - and we are dissapointed when you are only uberamazing, instead of unbelievably uberamazing.

    Forgive the fickle fans who do not know.

    He's a high salaried star, with a bad back, not an expiring contract...

    But look at it this way. Who would be better for the rockets and why would their team ever trade them for tmac?

    I do think sometimes that tmac knows he is taking a bad shot but does it to keep the defense honest when teams are sagging off of our shooters. I rarely see him take a bad shot in the final possession, he is much more likely to find an open teammate or get the best look available than many of the other superstars in this league.

    No it's not. So many fans wanted to trade T-Mac. If we traded T-Mac, there would be no 21 straight wins.

    The crows are not fully cooked, look like still raw. Also the pies are way too small....

    I'll take a slice. I said this was probably his last good season, but his play style is such that he can play a several more at a high level. Is it Adelman's coaching or Morey's personnel? Who cares - TMac doesn't, and he's winning.

    Not many people can admit they are wrong. They just make up other excuses that they will hope come true in the future.

    Only a handful of members that I can remeber defending Tmac. Rockza, Bbjai, Buccman22, and leeizbeig (probably spelt some wrong) when the whole board wanted to trade him for some scrubs or role players.

    At this point the only player I'd trade T-Mac for is Lebron, and that's taking the future into account too.
