Looks like Arby's isn't just "Slicing up Freshness" these days.
The restaurant chain is now picking on Tracy McGrady, the seven-time, NBA All-Star who is currently riding the bench for the San Antonio Spurs in the Finals.
@DragonflyJonez mused that the Spurs had picked T-Mac up from an Arby's when the team decided to sign him. The Arby's Twitter account responded with this zinger:
@DragonflyJonez Actually, we had to release him. He kept making too many turnovers. ;-)
-- Arby's (@Arbys) June 19, 2013 C'mon, Arby's! T-Mac has taken enough abuse throughout his career, as he never advanced past the first round of the NBA playoffs until this season. Sure, he has only averaged five minutes per game throughout San Antonio's postseason run, but can't we just let him have a good time on his first truly great team? You'd think that the 34-year-old veteran could get a break from America's favorite purveyor of roast beef sandwiches.
Regardless of what haters like the social media people at Arby's are saying, McGrady is one win away from an NBA championship. If the Spurs win it all, do you think T-Mac has a tweet prepared to send at Arby's? Perhaps it will be something along the lines of: "I'M GOING TO QUIZNOS!"

These days, it seems like everybody’s got jokes on Twitter and last night, one Twitter user by the name of @DragonflyJonez decided to clown on Spurs reserve Tracy McGrady.
Jonez decided to joke that San Antonio might have gotten T-Mac from an Arby’s and well, the Arby’s Twitter feed decided to join him in the clowning:
@DragonflyJonez Actually, we had to release him. He kept...
Athletic Sports + Outdoors already has a storage room full of San Antonio championship gear ready should Game 6 finish in the Spurs' favor.
Deep in the heart of Texas people tend to overlook the San Antonio Spurs. This might not be happening right now since they are playing in the NBA Finals, but more often than not fans forget about how great the Spurs have been in the past two decades.
David Robinson came to the team in 1989 and that draft pick proved to be a catalyst that started the Spurs winning ways. The team...
Gregg Popovich is prejudiced against bad rappers and people who heckle him.
That is the claim by Freezy, manager for rap artist Flo Rida, in a radio interview prior to Game 6 on Tuesday. Freezy and his Miami-based client have been banned from the last two games of the NBA Finals, the manager said, in what he declared was “an act of discrimination.”
“This is an act of discrimination...
With the San Antonio Spurs ahead 3-2 in the NBA Finals over the Miami Heat, it’s safe to begin looking at who a potential Finals MVP for the series could be if the Spurs win the title in six or seven games, or the Heat force a seventh game and win the championship.
The numbers provided below come from NBA.com/stats are only taken from the averages through the five NBA Finals...
One more defensive rebound, and the Spurs would have been spraying champagne.
One more board, one measly Heat miss corralled by the Spurs in the final 23 seconds of regulation, and the NBA Finals are over. Forget a Game 7, forget LeBron James’ headband, forget Manu Ginobili laying a gigantic egg for the umpteenth time in the series. It should be over. Tim Duncan should be passionlessly...
MIAMI (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs are hoping the road to recovery from an incredible collapse in Game 6 goes through their stomachs., http://juicedsportsblog.com/sports-news/news/spurs-break-bread-try-to-move-on-from-collapse-yahoo-sports
How will the Spurs bounce back?
That is the question that will linger during the winner-take-all Game 7 vs. the Heat on Thursday. Less than 48 hours after suffering a heartbreaking overtime loss, San Antonio must regroup -- and quickly.
The Spurs are still probably replaying this moment in their heads.
But from the looking at this footage, it appears this loss didn't sit well...
Let’s play the “What If?” game.
What if Tony Parker‘s last-second shot at the end of regulation in Game 6 found its way inside the net? Well, the Spurs would have won their fifth NBA title in the Tim Duncan era, Parker likely would’ve won his second Finals MVP and ESPN would feature nothing but “LeBron’s Tarnished Legacy” headlines until Tim Tebow is named the starting...
(Eds: Changes photo links. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist The sly smile on Erik Spoelstra's lips said it all. If only this once, the Miami coach couldn't wait to field questions.
This was just minutes after a magical Game 6, when the memories of how his Heat defied the longest of odds to steal a win in overtime were still fresh: Down five points with just...
Distant history tells us that the Spurs won’t recover from their Game Six loss.
June 7, 1978.
35 years and 13 days separate the Spurs from the last team to win Game Seven on the road. The 1978 Washington Bullets overcame the Seattle Supersonics in a strange anticlimax to a great series. It wasn’t a game decided by the stars, as both teams’ leading scorers fouled out and watched...
What kind of game can we expect from two all-time greats? (Photo credit)
Ok, we got the emotional stuff out of the way yesterday. Now, we’re going straight into the basketball of it all. Did you know this is only the fifth Finals to get a Game 7 since the Pistons and Lakers in ’88? No really, Houston beat the Knicks in ’94, the Spurs beat the Pistons in ’05, the Lakers beat...
Gregg Popovich is one of the grumpiest coaches in the NBA. The guy gives reporters a difficult time, hardly shows positive emotion, and he definitely is never happy. But that all changed after Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Thursday. Even though his San Antonio Spurs fell to the Miami Heat 95-88, Pop had [...]
