SAN ANTONIO Pardon Tracy McGrady if he sometimes forgets to use we when talking about the San Antonio Spurs.Give San Antonio some credit of defending (LeBron James), McGrady said Wednesday as if he were talking about some team in the league other than his own.But McGrady actually is a member of the Spurs. The 16-year veteran signed with them as a free agent April 16 and now sits at the end of the bench as he tries to cap his NBA career with first championship ring.McGrady has played just 15 mop-up minutes in the first three games of the NBA Finals, but he can offer a unique perspective on how the Spurs are defending James. McGrady once was a high-scoring small forward himself who was frustrated at times by San Antonios defense.OK, McGrady did have the legendary 2004-05 game against the Spurs when he scored 13 points in the final 35 seconds in a dramatic 81-80 win while with Houston. But he also had outings against them such as in 2003-04, when he won his second of two NBA scoring t...
