CLIP REEL: T-MAC'S STRUGGLES


"The only thing worse than this is the fact that the Houston rap scene's national relevance is skeptical, at best."
We're not mean people at all; we just like to point out facts. Tracy McGrady is the truth at some level: remember when he scored 13 points in 35 seconds against the Spurs no less? How about when he dropped 62 on the Wizards? However, he's got the ol' Kevin Garnett pre-2004 problem: he can't get out of the first round. It doesn't look much better this year; he's down 2-0 and going back to Utah. If you click through, a detailed rundown of T-Mac's problemas.

FIRST UP Check out this "Where Amazing Happens" spoof video about T-Mac over the years.

THE 2000 PLAYOFFS In the 2000 playoffs, T-Mac's Raptors lost to the Knicks 3-0.

THE 2001 PLAYOFFS In 2001, T-Mac's Magic went down to the Bucks, 3-1.

THE 2002 PLAYOFFS In 2002, the Charlotte Hornets bounced T-Mac, 3-1.

THE 2003 PLAYOFFS In Game One of their 1 vs. 8 series against the Pistons, T-Mac went for 42 points. Then, he went and predicted the Magic would win with a 3-1 lead, and uh, they lost.

THE 2005 PLAYOFFS In 2005, T-Mac's Rockets drew the Mavs. In Game 2, he hit the game winner! He also dunked hard on Shawn Bradley. And pretty hard on Erick Dampier, too. In Game 7, the Mavericks won by 40 points.

THE 2007 PLAYOFFS So he tells Stephen A. Smith "It's On Me!" Then they lose in 7, at home. And the tears flow.
