Tracy McGrady on the Pistons: `My game will do all the talking`

“My game this season will do all the talking I need to do now,” McGrady told FanHouse Friday when reached on his cell phone. "There’s no need for me to say anything else at this point.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Having a chip on your shoulder is never a bad thing, but Tracy McGrady must channel his emotions.

If McGrady treats the Detroit Pistons’ system like an all-you-can-shoot-buffet, if he believes the season is all about his redemption, if he demands a set amount of minutes, touches, and field goal attempts, then this chip is a negative.

However, if McGrady facilitates for others, if he uses his length, size, and athleticism to defend, if he stuffs the stat-sheet like when he was with the Toronto Raptors, then this chip is a positive.

Bottom line: McGrady may never find his past form. He must accept this. He must move on. He must play a role for Detroit.

If he can do this successfully, a contender may consider him as a sixth-man, game-changer for 2012.

Then his career will have been salvaged. And then the chip on his shoulder will have been a positive.
