One of the funniest story lines of the NBA playoffs has been the resurrection of onetime star/ballhog Tracy McGrady as a scrub on the San Antonio Spurs, who are now playing the Heat in the NBA Finals.
Once a perennial All-Star, McGrady is now filling out the end of the Spurs’ bench. A lot of good teams will bring in past-their-prime vets to fill out a roster, the idea being that these guys have been around the block and know how to show up on time, stay ready, and keep quiet in a way a younger, more headstrong player might not.
Basically, teams are hoping that these players will not create bizarre distractions like the one T-Mac created today when a reporter asked him if he’s prepared to play major minutes should the Spurs need him to.
His response was perfectly absurd.
