If I was T-Mac's agent, I would just suggest to him that he not speak at all. Because whenever he opens that big mouth, he only says something that he will regret or make him look stupid. The most recent case of this is...after the Bulls loss he says it wasn't his fault they lost 19 in a row, and the other guys are being selfish.

This has to be one of the funniest things of all time. He...T-Mac...is calling other players selfish, take a look at your own stats T-Mac. He shoots the most and doesn't get many assists. And maybe, just maybe if he could step it up enough and turn his came on (because he says he can turn it on at any time) and score some more, and do some other things...like pass, and get others involved, then the other guys wouldn't have to play "selfish ball".

Yahoo Sports: McGrady scored 26 points, only eight in the second half and none in the final quarter. He had only three shots in the final period.

"Two of them I forced it because I was frustrated. I didn't get any shots because guys were selfish,'' McGrady said.

"The team forgot about team ball,'' McGrady said.

"You get frustrated because you are not making shots because somebody is selfish and it carries over to the defensive end. And it tears your team apart. ... It is a problem, why do you think we lost 19 in a row?

if i was orlando, i would trade T-mac, his numbers are WAY DOWN from last year, his fg% is down, his 3 pt fg% is down, his assists are down, his POINTs are down by like 7 pts, his turnovers have gone up from last year, his fouls per game have gone up, tha only thing that has gone up are his rebounds(not much of a diff, 6.5 to 6.7)...

this guy is terrible, hes barely shooting 40% on a team that has no offense...look in tah f*ckin mirror T-MAC!

T-Mac and his "selfish teammates" come away with a big win over the Pacers. 94-90.

Strickland really stepped it up, since Lue isn't playing due to a injured hip. Rod played 36 minutes, scored 13 points (his season high), got 8 assists, and 5 rebounds. And he gave them a basket in the final seconds, ensuring them the victory.
Bogans had a big game too, getting 15 points & 12 rebounds.
Gooden-pitched in 18 points & 10 rebounds
Howard-scored 19 points
And T-Mac-scored 21 points and passed to his selfish teammates enough to get 11 assists

Now that Magic team could make the playoffs, the problem is they won't see that type of performance from the team for another long while

Rumor has it that Howard may be on his way out the door. The Cavs, as well as the Sonics, have shown interest in him.

The Magic want to give Gooden the majority of the minutes, and they don't think Howard will be too happy with a smaller role. Plus, they could get someone they can play along with Gooden and T-mac, instead of having someone come off the bench.

if a trade happens, and depending on what they could get in return, Giricek may be included in the deal; because him and T-Mac have not been getting along at all and have been fighting for some time now

T-mac and tha magic are starting to come together...and they got their first winning streak of tha year...they are now 2nd to last in tha east, and tha HAWKS are now tha worst team in tha league with a 7-22 record...

The magic shouldnt make any trades at this point cuz howard and gooden are playin good and t-mac's numbers are improving....

Finally soem light is shown to tha magic...they've won 6 of their past 8 games after that 1-19 start...

The Magic might as well send out a memo, making it official that they are the worst team in the league. I don't care what kind of winning streak you go on, when you lose to the shorthanded Sixers by 22 points; who are without AI, Coleman, and Jackson, and you let Robinson shoot 20 shots on you & let him score 22 points (a season high)...then you are a sorry excuse for a team.

T-Mac can't pin this loss on anyone. If he points one finger at someone, blaming them for this loss (like he tends to do), instead of taking blame for any negative thing that happens to the team...then he should be fined by the team or league...because I am sick of his excuses. He just needs to shutup, especially after only making 1 of his first 10 shots tonight.

Here are some of the tonight's stats from the worst team in the league:
    T-Mac-5 turnover, 20 points on 6-19 shooting, Robinson got more shots and points than T-Mac (kind of funny I thought)
    Lue-12 points, 6 rebounds, & 4 turnovers
    Howard-10 points


Final Score:
Sixers 95
Magic 73

haha YES my sixers prevail once again! without iverson, jackson, coleman, green, williams, etc etc

and FINALLY robinson steps up for tha sixers, man i was gettin frustrated with tha way hes been performing for this team, after goin jus 2 for 10 against boston, and then my main man KYLE KORVER, tha next STOJAKOVIC in tha league, steppin up once again with 16 pts(jus 6-17 shooting tho), and MCKIE AND SNOW are definetly tha ironmen of tha sixers, both had big games....

Man i was surprised we beat tha magic by 22 pts, after bein swept by tha magic in last year's regular season(4-0)....even more surprised that we did this without iverson...and u knwo whats funny? t-mac and robinson HATE each other, if u guys remember 2 or 3 yrs back when tha magic and bucks faced eachother in tha 1st round, t-mac said somethin to BIG dog glenn robinson and called him a puppy or somethin, and big dog barked back with "well who's winning?" and bucks went on to win that series...robinson prolly took this game personally and attacked t-mac...hopefully Robinson can get back on tha right track after all tha hype of him bein that 20+ scorer that tha sixers really needed...i mean VAN HORN was avg more than robinson is right now!(15.9 to 13.3)

well the past 2 Magic games have been interesting. They got a win against Lebron and the Cavs, even though it went into overtime, they still got the win (113-101). And then the next night they lose big to the Spurs, not being able to contain Timmy or Parker.

stats against the Cavs:
T-Mac: 41 points, 11 assists, 8 boards
Howard: 19 points (8 in overtime)
Gooden: 12 points & 10 rebounds
Strickland & Lue: each with 11 points

They seem to really like Strickland, because they are now splitting the time at point between him and Lue.

against the Spurs:
T-Mac: 24 points on 8-21 shooting, and 8 rebounds (they seem to do better when T-Mac passes a lot, against the Spurs he only got 4 assists)
Howard: 13 points
Giricek: 10 points

good news for the Magic

Orlando Sentinel: The league has awarded them a $1.4 million exception for forward Pat Garrity, who likely will miss the rest of the season after knee surgery. The club can use the exception for Garrity to sign a player or include it in a trade.

The Magic may try to get Kurt Thomas. I don't know how they would give everyone time, if they got him. They already have a hard enough time working in Howard and Gooden. I guess Thomas could play center, and Gooden and Howard could continue to share time at the PF.

Orlando Sentinel: A league source said that if forward Kurt Thomas becomes available, the Magic would be interested in making a trade. Kurt Thomas makes $5.5 million and has just two years left on his contract.

i think that would be tha first GOOD thing thsi franchise has done all season...maybe trade Howard for Thomas? Or trade a couple of players for Thomas...possibly Hunter and Giricek? Knicks shouldnt worry about who they get...they already have mcdyess sweetney waetherspoon lampe and harrington for tha 4 spot...so they should look to fill up tha 2 and 3 spot...and giricek can give them that....

The Knicks are KILLING the Magic tonight late in the 4th. Right now it's:

Knicks 112
Magic 84


0:39 4th Quarter

Did McGrady get injured or something? He played 11 minutes on 0-2 shooting. He could have gotten into foul trouble...?

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

T-Mac update:
Tracy McGrady underwent an MRI Tuesday on his strained right hip.

The results of the MRI were negative and McGrady is listed as day-to-day.

Orlando will play its next game on Jan. 2 against Miami and McGrady's status will be based on how he reacts to treatment in the next few days.
