    Im pretty sure thats wrong. I read somewhere its either 4.6 or 4.5, most likely 4.5. He is just too tall to run a 4.3 and if you have seen someone run a 4.3 it is just ridiculous. For example REGGIE BUSH runs a 4.33, calvin johnson runs a 4.35, DEVIN HESTER a 4.3. T mac is nowhere in that speed range lol.

    Speed could not mean everything. Suns has speed, it is the wonderful team to see the game, just for crowd.

    no i read an article where he ran a 4.3. yes t-mac is tall but he is also very long so he has long strides when he runs. he was a hell of an athlete early in his career.

    One day Tracy clocked 4.29 in the 40. Just to make sure, Hall told him to run it again, then again, and both times Tracy ran in the low 4.3s. Another day Tracy tossed a baseball around the park, which is also the home of the Braves’ Gulf Coast Rookie League team. After watching the righthanded McGrady throw in the mid-80s, the Braves offered him a contract.

    Yao only needs to take 4 steps to finish a 40 yard dash.

    Anyways, I don't think speed is the problem. Too many turn overs is the problem.

    speed might actually be an issue.

    yao is not quick. scola isn't too quick and athletic either. battier, in his role as a perimeter defender, is often out-quicked by his opponent. francis always was athletic but not so quick laterally. mutombo is the definition of slow. bonzi wells looked very slow last year and as a sg it probably will still be an issue.

    but i doubt this will have anything to do with how far we'll get into the playoffs.
