    I don't take the word from a person who wasn't willing to play defense even though he was elite once and could when he cared enough.

    Dude could have been Kobe or better, but he didn’t have the right mentality.

    Have no idea why he hates so much, but I don’t care either.

    He forgot that we torched the Lakers with small ball in LA.

    Tmac is the antithesis to the Mamba mentality. Him and Kobe should never be in the same discussion.

    I probably won’t click.

    Can someone summarize Zach Lowe’s take?

    No clue why this guy has an audience when he tries to speak about what it takes to win in the playoffs. Give me a break.

    Whatever.

    Daryl Morey did everything to try and get McGrady to adapt his game to the changing league. He brought graphs and pie charts and hard numerical evidence to show that McGrady was becoming inefficient and that he would be a better player, with less effort but playing smart and McGrady didn't want to believe it or adapt. He even picked the Lakers over his own team when he was hurt in the playoffs.

    He is mentally slow and is mentally weak.

    Everything is going to Morey's plan. We are doing what we have always done except without a center. We will see in the playoff how it works when we are not catching anyone off guard in a 7 game series.

    Conveniently Forgot because he is one of the main ones talking against it. Look at big Perks energy compared to T-mac

    Basically said he didn’t get why people were so take aback at the Rockets playing this way. He said it’s the same way they’ve always played but now with an extra shooter and no center.
    Both of them said it’s very good now but how effective will it be in a 7 game series?

    To me, that’s a fair take. Can the rockets adapt when coaches and teams have time to game plan and focus strictly on the Rockets.

    Mental midget of a player with small time mentality.

    Why he kept failing over and over again just to get out of the first round.

    Bingo.

    This guy was so full of himself (still is) that he wouldn't take anyone's advice. You would think a guy with a losing record as his (playoff failures after failures) would take heed.

    Nope. Always liked to stoke his own ego instead of correcting his ways.

    Rick Adelman was trying to make the game easier for him but the chump just wanted his way.

    He deserved all his failures.

    Now he is just burning up and hating on Harden and his success.

    What a LOSER.

    Do y’all think Harden’s carpet matches his drapes yes?

    I always laughed when he tried to compare himself to Kobe.

    Kobe had a killer instinct.

    Mcgrady had a roadkill instinct.

    I hate that in 2020, T-Mac is ESPN's definition of a good analyst.

    It's pathetic to listen and watch this channel brainwash casual fans.
