Tracy McGrady Wants A Two-Year College Requirement For NBA Draft Prospects

Tracy McGrady has been full of great soundbites during the NBA Finals.  Here’s what the former league scoring champ had to say about the current requirement that NBA prospects spend a year playing in college (or overseas) before they’re eligible to enter the NBA Draft (courtesy of USAToday.com via SlamOnline.com): “I actually think they should implement having these guys...

Tracy McGrady’s Rationale Off Base on Why NBA Players Should Go to College for Two Years

The 1990s is arguably the ultimate era of “What ifs?” in NBA history, with the ’70s as the only other decade really in the discussion. Yet while the ’70s were marred by drug use and a talent pool thinned by expansion and the rise of the ABA, the ’90s simply fell victim to too many teams being willing to give too many unproven players big money too early in their lives....

T-Mac discusses trip to Finals with Alex Kennedy

I have probably spent too much time already this postseason living vicariously through Tracy McGrady. The whole NBA world is happy for McGrady finally playing out of the first round for the first time in his career. McGrady entered the NBA Finals for the first time Sunday night in San Antonio's blowout loss to Miami. He did not score in playing eight minutes and missing his...

Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard Making Spurs, Long One of NBA’s Least-Likable Teams, Almost Worth Rooting For

You never liked the San Antonio Spurs that much. At least, you never really liked them if you had a soul. As a decent and honorable human being, you cringed whenever Bruce Bowen not-so-subtly snuck his foot into the landing area of an opposing jump shooter, and you winced when Manu Ginobili barreled into the lane, long hair flapping behind him, just knowing he was going to flop his...

Heat's Lewis says Spurs were option last year. Discusses Green, Leonard's growth

AT&T Center – Almost a year ago in early July, Miami Heat forward Rashard Lewis was a free agent and searching for a championship contender to sign with. Before signing with the Heat, Lewis was rumored to be in talks with the Los Angeles Lakers, Heat, Atlanta Hawks, and the team he’s down 2-1 against in the NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs. On Wednesday at the Heat media...

This Really Happened: Gary Neal, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Mike Miller Outshine Everyone

Between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, there are anywhere from six to eight future Hall of Famers stepping on the court each night. LeBron James is the best player in the world. Tony Parker is the best playoff point guard since I’m not even sure who. Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward [...]The post This Really Happened: Gary Neal, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Mike...

Five Things We’ve Learned From The Spurs-Heat Series So Far

1.    The Spurs can blow out an opponent, shocker. Because of the Heat’s athleticism and explosiveness, the perception was that only Miami could blow out the Spurs and not the other way around. Well, the Spurs can do it too and even pointing it out seems rather dumb. But the Spurs had the fourth-best margin of victory (+6.4) in the NBA during the regular season and have the...

Spurs annihilate Heat 113-77; lead NBA Finals 2-1

Whoa. I think most people expected this to be a long series, but for those who expected Miami to breeze to a 2nd straight title — consider yourself warned. The Spurs walloped the Heat 113-77 behind monster performances from Gary Neal (24 points) and Danny Green (27 points, 7-9 3 PT FG). Yes you read that correctly. However, while those two were the offensive stars, they may...
