Desperate Clippers considering desperate T-Mac
The Clippers will bring in Tracy McGrady for a workout next week, Neil Olshey confirmed. The market for McGrady has yet to materialize after he had a mixed performance for the Knicks.
The Clippers – after striking out on every major free agent, which was as predictable as full time party girl and part time actress Lindsay Lohan ending up in the slammer – are desperate.
They’ve reached out to a desperate, past-his prime veteran. They’ve invited Tracy McGrady for a tryout.
Let’s be real. He’s not that McGrady. He’s not an All-Star. He’s not dominating on offense. And he’s not the guy we once compared to Kobe Bryant.
He hasn’t been for years. So wipe those romanticized memories of T-Mac from your mind.
Face reality: he’s injury prone, especially after coming off micro-fracture surgery; he wasn’t good enough for the Rockets or lowly Knicks; he’s become irrelevant, surviving off his name.
McGrady makes little sense for the Clippers. They must build around their youngsters. Not flirt with a superstar who is hanging on and, if he made the team, would demand first option status.
Of course, these shenanigans are par for the course with the Clippers. And it’s why they’ll always be second fiddle in their city, and a league laughingstock.
