Well thats the confidence we like to hear McGrady… Per ESPN and My San Antonio, Tracy McGrady let them know via text Tuesday morning that the deal was official… He’s a new member of the San Antonio Spurs. The question isn’t whether Tracy can still play, he’s averaged 25 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 29 games while playing in China, the real question is does HE believe he can still be a dominating force in the NBA. When asked how much he can contribute to the Spurs, Mcgrady replied: “I guess that’s the unknown,” he said. “This is unbelievable, It’s a championship organization, something I haven’t really been part of my entire career. I’m very excited. I’m humbled for the opportunity. I’m not sure when I’ll play or if I’ll play. That’s not the place for me (to complain). I just know when my number is called, I’ll be ready.” When Popovich was asked for his comment, he replied: “We don’t have any expectation,” head coach Gregg Popovich said. “He may not play at all and he may play a bunch. It just depends on situations as we move along. He’s a quality player and a good person and he’ll fit in well with everybody. We’re glad to have him.” Unlike other critics, Im happy to see McGrady back in the NBA. He was an explosive player and a joy to watch. Hopefully he’ll finally get to shine in the NBA playoffs.
