Kevin Garnett : 31 (turning 32 next month)
Steve Nash : 34
Nowitzki : 29
Iverson: 33
Duncan: 32
Kobe : already 29 (older than tmac, but since it is same yr... you can call them the saem age)


You tell me from the names i mentioned above, that any one of these players are diminishing because of their age??

KG has more heart than ever!!! even when he was in Minnesota, HE gave it his best....
Duncan.... steps up everytime!!
Nowitzki..... without him dallas is crap (even though he does not step up at all when time comes, I would sometimes compare him to TMAC, cuz he does not show up in the 4th, when the game is down the line)
Iverson: this guy is old and you know without a doubt, he will play his heart out every night. Yes, I believe at this point, he has more heart then Tmac.
Steve Nash: I dont need to say more... if you want an explanation, then you dont understand his value
Kobe: same age as TMAC.... you think he is fading???


prime yrs are around 27-31.... now dont argue that tmac joined the nba early and that his prime yrs are gone!!!

because once again you can look at Kobe and others, they are performing night in and night out.

TMAC has just given up.......... and thats the sad part.... if he never had it, I would not mind what he does, because we all would know he is not capable of it. But what hurts is that we know he is capable of more than what he brings to the court...... look at him in the first 3 quarters of game 2.... what he just starting driving to the basket out of nowhere? or did the Jazz just give him the lane to drive in the 2nd game versus the 1st? You tell me....

Its all a mind game..... if you didnt notice, when tmac kicked butt in that 3rd quarter last game..... ALL of his teammates stepped up, because they all fed off his explosive personality. so its not just about 9 assists or getting closer to a triple double... in the playoffs, its a lot more about your attitude!! there are some invisible things that can motivate your team... but as a star of the team, you need to find that and bring it to the court (that is your homework)
Let me tell you something, you don't know basketball, don't watch games obviously and you're spamming and boring with nonsense posts.
This playoffs series aren't on T-MAC PEOPLE, NEVER BEEN, THEY'RE ON HOUSTON ROCKETS, THESE ARE HOUSTON ROCKETS NOT MINGOS MCGRADYOS.

We were in the game to the very end. The notion that T-Mac quit and then his teammates did too is ridiculous. Sorry. Why would he try so hard and play a great 3 quarters and give up when we are still in the game? That doesn't make sense.

ssp0929 was wrong to argue about T-Mac's health compared to other superstars and that as a factor of his play. He is definitely not an ironman like Kobe or Iverson. But to say he quit when there's no real reason is wrong as well.

Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming are top 15 NBA players. Why? They made the All-NBA Third Team.

It has yet to be seen if the "Adelman Offense" works or not. Last season doesn't count.

I think T-Mac just needs to hire Shane Battier as his PR consultant.

It is not about him quitting..... It is about him stepping up! and there is a difference.

You quit when you have been performing better to begin with.

I know where you are coming from and I understand. But let me ask you one question...... Do you honestly think Tmac gave his best effort and that there was no way he could have done more?

Don't get me wrong, I am not a Tmac hater. I don't post much, but I am on clutchfans reading like its my religion.
I have backed up Tmac many many times, in front of many ppl.

For some reason, I believe that Tmac is better than what he shows. I am not going to be one of those fans that will just settle for what we have. I know he has more..... it annoys me that he does not want to bring it to the court.

we all know, and I am sure he knows, that he is freakin unstoppable when he wants to be.

Tmac driving to the Rim in the 3rd quarter ladt game and dunking has nothing to do with his teammates getting better, it has all to do with him making them better.

you tell me, you dont think that tmac is scared of driving in, especially because of utah and their physical defense?
Dude, its been so bad with him not driving in, that he doesnt even get the respect anymore from the refs. So the few times he does drive, he will get fouled and the refs dont call it.
I hate how refs call fouls for Wade..... if the wind moves his jersey, they blame it on the defender... do you think Wade pays the refs off? Once again, its a mind game... especially in the playoffs

whoever brings more attitude to the court, more passion, gets the respect.

this is what I do expect a star to do..... if the others are knocking you around like a bunch of punching bags..... you as a star, tell your team to do the same.. you go out there and push them back!!

i liked it how tmac used harprings physical defense as his motivation... THATS GREATTT, but ...... dont lose it in the middle... keep on coming with it and rub it off to your teammates!!

dont let someone else come to your House and push you around.... THIS is your HOME.... you should think like that and never back down. if they foul you hard.... get up fast instead of looking hurt on the floor... walk up to them, get in their face. It doesnt matter if you get a foul or a technical
you have 6 fouls and 2 techs. Use them wisely, but use them.

I bet you anything, if tmac does that.... his team will too. and when they do, i can guarantee you ppl like boozer and williams and scrubs like price would think twice before messing with you or taking it in.

dont let them get into your head, get in their head. especially when you are at home man!!

I dont care if tmac takes 40 shots.... seriously 40 shots and we lose!! but if he is showing the aggressiveness, then thats all a fan can ask

he can be a facilitator, but when the game in on the line... do NOT expect scola, jackson, brooks, landry, battier to take over

I will say it again..... I have no complaints on Tmac for what he did in the first 3 quarters of the last game. its the 4th where he washed it all away.
1 point combined for both 4th quarters is ridiculous!!
any team with a 20 point deficit can have a chance to come back and win if your star does that.

If you noticed, we lack offense right now... bad!! If you had to have someone shoot 30+ shots, who would you pick?
because your team is not going to have a balanced shooting night with rookies and veterans on the team. you know battier will never take 30+ shots...

I just wish Tmac gets that animal instinct back. I dont care if we lose.... i want to lose trying our best. And frankly we havent given our best yet.

Hope we win tonight!!

I wish he had draft Heinekens in Toyota Center.

LeBron clearly isn't as imaginative as Tracy. Cartoons, grocery and milk? What?

Heineken. Budweiser. That's classic.

"I am serious," he said. "It's my fault. Everything is my fault. It's my fault. It's blunto's fault.

"Everybody's blaming me. SunsRocketsFan. I mean, everybody. That's what it seems like. It's my fault. I'm out there by myself."

"It's a tough situation to be in. Story of my season or my posting career."

"That's another one of my faults, that Kyle got hurt and Kevin got hurt," blunto said. "It's my fault. I'm sorry."

"Even some of the guys can't even believe it. I was talking to one of the guys and he was like, "I would hate to be you. I really can't believe what some of the people say about you, especially after reviving that old thread the other night.' They can't believe it."
