    On ill feelings toward unnamed franchises over his last few NBA seasons: “I didn’t enjoy it because a lot was taken away from me. I felt like the ability I could display, I wasn’t allowed to do that. I felt I was lied to. I don’t want to say no names. I was lied to. Things wasn’t happening the way it was told to me.

    Both. Loved Yao and loved T-Mac. Glad Yao's number is getting retired and I'm hoping McGrady can get himself a ring.

    This.

    Yao is a legendary human and a fine basketball player, but I don't fully endorse retiring his jersey.

    Tmac on the Spurs... whatever. His career was over 5 years ago until further notice. I wish that he had found success on the Rockets.

    I voted for Tracy. This championship? "It's on me."

    5 games played, 4:54 mpg, 0.0 ppg, 0/5, 1.2 reb, 0.8 ast, 0.6 blk

    You can't win blowout games without this kind of performance.

    Yao. My favorite player of all time.

    I can't be the only one hoping that, as the clock ticks down in Houston of the 2014 NBA Finals, Yao Ming suits up and walks onto the court to the cheers of Red Nation...

    ;.;7 miss you big fella

    >>>Yao. Yao? Yao.<<< He would've carried us to the playoffs many times, class act, bball ambassador, well deserved.

    Dude you must cringe every time Tmac gets subbed in and San Antonio fans start chanting his name, lol. I'm actually happy for him, he seems pretty humbled at this age, and I hope gets to contribute a lil so he doesn't feel guilty if the Spurs win him a ring.
