    from what I understand Players always have the team trainers/physicians at their disposal when rehabbing...they can not have organized team practcices but players are allowed to rehab at the facility and seek treatment...

    The difference is that T-Mac is hurt, while Artest is healthy and he just needs some time off. I don't believe T-Mac deserves to be bashed more for this, but he should still be working. I don't care if T-Mac isn't working to come back, because I don't want him to come back this year. Rockets need to trade him ASAP though.

    Tmac apologists: Geez, the guy is allowed to have fun, leave him alone.

    Why put a guy before the team when he could care less.

    I pray I never have to see McGrady in a Rockets uniform again. But that probably will not happen.

    I was just telling you what I was told. I was at the clippers facility last Friday and it was a ghost house there and they have plenty of injury issues themselves for players not to be in there rehabbing. players can rehab but on their own.

    i think that was part of the reason why anthony falsone had to be let go by the rockets and hired personally by Yao to help him train overseas and over the all-star break a few years back.

    he didn't do a sh$t before, why get mad at him now?

    look at his body, is he 50?

    don't mention his name until he is gone.

    hope the drama season ends sooner than ours.

    So I guess you're saying that Chuck Hayes has no heart, too?

    So what? We will still kick out Artest for someone who can play with Tmac like VC or M Miller. Nothing gonna change for the plan.

    Learn to pray and be pround of Tmac since he will play for Rockets for two more years.

    could you imagine Yao or Battier for example partying in vegas if their knee was messed up?....i bet not...they would be working their A$$ off to get back on the court....

    why do some of you hold TMAC to a different set of rules....he shouldn't get a pass just because he has that "i don't give a sh%^ personality....

    Partying is just part of the rehab process. I hope he's using this time to lose some weight because he looked a little chubby in that ESPN ad.

    1. You are right, what he does on his own time is his own business. A man can relax if it's his wish.

    2. What is the latest on his knee? Last I heard/read was that his MRI showed that his knee has shown no improvement from when he had the surgery. This would contradict what the doctors told him about playing on it would make it stronger/better.

    2a. If his knee is jacked, I don't want him trying to rehab it and possibly hurting it even worse than it might already be.

    2b. If his knee is just injured and requires rehab, then yeah, he should be doing that. Again, this depends on what the deal really is with it, which as far as I know, we don't know one way or another at this point.

    I know many people are frustrated with him, and rightfully so. However, I think this is not very news worthy. I mean if they found him at Chucky Cheese with his kids, would that be a big deal since he wasn't rehabbing? No right? I don't know. Maybe it's just because I like to go to Las Vegas too, haha.

    Who is T-mac? Is he a Rockets? It would be shame if he is.

    wayne hall always goes everywhere with tracy and i'm sure he puts in the workouts in the morning.

    unless you know of clubs that get poppin' at 8-9AM in the morning :rolleyes:

    they just reported he was there over the weekend and those parties are usually AT NIGHT. unless you have the expectations that tracy should rehab 24/7, then sure be disappointed.

    i'm sure those guys who made it to the all-star team "appear" to have fun over the weekend, but for 45min-1hr in the morning, i'm sure they put in a workout. geez.
