    Well, he's not? He just left Toronto to go back to play in his hometown. What's so wrong with that?

    well. he can't develop near VC. It's that simple. After just a couple of years, he became better player than Vince, so it was right move. No controversy

    For example, Mayo can't develop with Gay in his team. Grizzlies would trade him and he'll become better player then Rudy. And would be a Memphis fault, not OJ's

    Tracy says a lot of dumb things, but there's not really anything controversial here.

    What I thought was more interesting was when asked about the booing he answered, "I love it. It fuels me. Keep booing me." If you remember, he said pretty much the exact same thing when he went back to Orlando the first time as a Rocket.

    But when asked about the booing when he came back to Houston for the first time a couple weeks ago, it was different. He didn't answer so defiantly, it was more or long the lines of, "It is what it is," and his body language also gave of the impression that the booing kinda hurt him.

    I think deep down he does have love for Houston and regrets the way things went down, though he's too proud to ever admit it.

    He's right, he's not Chris Bosh

    I dont know any other player that gets booed by the fans of three former teams.

    TMac has that unique distinction...

    I think the only person that may have an issue with that would be Bosh, but it's true.

    You need to consider when he was interviewed...was it during half time when he still had his adrenaline pumping from the game? or was it at the end of the game in the locker room when he had time to settle down.

    Strange, the article says Dec. 23, but I could swear this has been posted and discussed before.

    Metallica also sold out their fans by cutting their hair short.

    Forget that napster debacle, their hair was what made them metal kings!

    Pshhh.....give me Vince. At least he gets out of the first round. Hell, he led the Raptors past the Knicks.

    Yeah, he didn't sell out Toronto, just Houston and Orlando. Give the man a break.
