    those are editorial pieces. this was a "news" piece.

    if you think there is no tension b/t tmac and adelman/morey, you're crazy.

    i think the only person who can resolve all this is les. i think the only person left tmac does trust in this organization is les.

    You don't think journalists can manipulate quotes to fit their own agenda? What's more interesting, a closed-door conversation between the coach and his player or a shouting match between the two? He even mentions that t-mac 'slammed the door' as he went in. There probably is tension, I'm sure, but for it to have escalated to this? I don't think so. The media is all about hyperbole and I would be willing to bet that the situation is nowhere near as volatile as Woj is reporting.

    All I got to say is that the media is so much BS...

    Im going to believe Chron because they actually interviewed RA and Tmac about the situation while Yahoo! just speculated about the situation from past situations. I dont get why they said Tmac and RA got into a heated argument at practice last week also...why wouldnt they have reported the situation then? I cant wait till Monday till hopefully all the BS blows over. But until then lets kill the Hawks!

    One thing that I have not seen anyone point out yet:

    What drama is he referring to? Yes, he was in and out of the lineup because of injuries and that was a distraction...but...drama? Any stories we missed last year? :confused:

    The whole announcing his season ending surgery to the media before the organization may be the drama he's talking about. Adleman was really pissed that TMAC did that. Also, I remember the players seemed to really dislike McGrady last year, especially Artest because of his antics and not playing hard when he was on the court.

    I believe Yahoo because they were the first one to say Yao Ming was out for the season this past summer. It wasn't Chronicle who broke the story about Yao, so I believe Yahoo has someone on the inside working for them. I believe it happened and knowing McGrady's history of trying to be the man. TMac did get Doc Rivers fired from the Magic, the same coach for the current Celtics. Whatever the case might be, they should just try to work things out, play TMac and trade him.

    My guess is it happened just as yahoo reported and now the Rockets are trying to cover it up like they always do with regards to Grady.

    yes, and if he missed 41 consecutive games, rox also can receive insurance money for his each additional missed game, 80% of his per-game salary.

    This thread deserves bumping up with the Yahoo thread.

    I sure do hope T-Mac is chomping at the bit. Maybe he's actually motivated in this, a contract season.

    Lol just because one source broke one story out of ten does not make it accurate on every article.

    They did not lie about it. They just increased the drama there.

    We want the soap opera to continue. Thats why we cant stop talking about it on these threads. We take simple conversations and blow them up just like the media does. Love hurts and we all love and need T-Mac wether we admit it or not. :grin:
