Watching the Rockets tonight was so intense. Yao had an off night due to killer D from the wolves, but he can get away with that because he's
been doing well all season. TMAC, I don't understand why he keeps jacking up shots when he's off. There was several plays where he had the lane
open to make a drive or he's about to make a drive, then suddenly, just stop and shoot a jumper. I don't understand why he see that YAO is having
difficulty scoring due to double team and triple team, but he won't step up to the plate. I know they will bounce back on Friday, but man, TMAC is
Why can't he at the very least drive the lane and get fouled like Wade always does for the heat?
Umm...no. Yao doesn't get a pass nor does McGrady for this game.
The two captains sank the boat tonight, stop trying to deflect blame because you like one player over the other.
Wade gets splattered all over the floor every game. Tracy is afraid to do that because he doesn't want to injure himself...
It's not that i'm favoring one player over another...it just fustrating because TMAC is not the same guy no more. He settles for jumpers too much, even when he's off.
It just my opinion, and if you think i'm favoring one guy over another, then that's your opinion, but obviously you don't get it.
I don't have a problem with T-Mac taking lots of shots. But when more than 90% of his shots are outside 15 feet, there's something wrong.
In the 3rd quarter and early in the 4th, he should've realized that going hard to the basket is what he needs to do since his shot is not falling.
Referees are beginning to realize he's a jump shooter as well, so he earns less respect from them now too.
The only guy who can penetrate to the basket on our team is T-Mac, followed by Spanoulis a distant 2nd, and no one evern worth mentioning at 3rd.
Shooting is something we do well - Battier and Head are excellent shooters, while Padgett and Alston do a pretty good job too.
T-Mac has to realize that right now, he's doing nothing. He's going to get hot once in a while, like the GS game, but that's not enough. If he's not going to be a top PLAYER,
then he needs to put up something other than 6 assists with 3 TO's to make up for it. Play better D. Get more steals, more blocks. PENETRATE. PASS BETTER. Rebound more.
He's too content right now. He's happy with not carrying the load. He's happy not going to the basket, and taking his chances with his jumper.
What do we really need from T-Mac? Same passing, rebounding and defense as previous seasons. What we really need from him？
a high % shot for himself, or high % shots for his team.
Even when he was pouring in 32ppg for Orlando, he was dishing out 5 assists. Who says he has to sacrifice scoring for passing? You know what he needs to sacrifice? Poor shot selection.
That's it. But it would be the best team in the league if T-Mac was more aggresive in getting better shots. I really can't see anyone beating us
You remember the game we played against Cleveland?
Lebron was missing jump shots one after another, and he still didn't want to make a drive. That's just like what Tmac doing tonight.
It is not just Tmac's problem. Cleveland fans must be upset with Lebron's performance too.
I mean, what's going on with these "superstar" players?
