Tracy McGrady Endorses Wheelchairs

posted by Free Press Houston @ 8:24 AM

I fully understand that most of you are still currently under the spell of the man I will forever refer to as Tradey McGrady. And I'm fine with that, for the sole reason of emerging as a genius in the end. But my opinions are not here nor there when it comes to my avid support of Darrell Morey and his Jedi-management of our beloved Houston Rockets.
Tradey is clearly, whether you want to admit it or not, riddled with injury. He's beyond the industry term- "injury prone." But that doesn't mean he's a bad player. That doesn't mean that he's incapable of playing stellar defense. It doesn't mean that we need to trade him for futures in oil; although I think the Saudi's would definitely make the trade.

It means that the coaches need to assess the situation for what it is. If the team needs to preserve Tradey's rickety old body for the post-season, then he should not start and come off the bench instead. How deep would our roster be then? Marianna's Trench deep, my friends.
Tradey would still face all the same players during the game but he would spend the majority of his time dismantling the the opposition's second team. And due to Mr. Morey's wizardry, the Rockets would not go wanting for starters.

Yao Ming, Ron Artest, Shane Battier, Luis Scola, and Rafer Alston: sounds like a pretty damn good starting lineup to me. Not to mention, I still haven't figured out how teams would score on us. Thankfully, that's not my job. My job is to present a problem and offer a solution, which I've done.

For those of you who remain adamant that Tradey should be a starter for reasons of wage rate, I have this to say: There was a time when the Houston Rockets paid Tradey McGrady large sums of money because he was an elite player; but now he's not an elite player, so they pay him lots of money to do whatever the hell it is they want him to do. If being the highest paid bench player in the NBA is what they want from him, then he should swallow that cancerous hero-complex of his and just do it.
The Houston Rockets are a team, not several players supporting one player. That's the Lakers and the Mavericks.
Predictions for the Game, anyone?
