Tracy McGrady on him in Today's Game:
"I'll average easily 35-40 points a game. Easily. I mean I averaged 32
without even shooting that many 3s... And you can't impeded my progress when
I'm running... I'm like come on man."

I don't know about 40, but he could
definitely average 35. T-Mac was a beast in his prime.
[–]WeRightHere 204 指標 5小時前
I can see 35.

Ok, so I think yes, he could have because
prime T-Mac was an offensive beast. He averaged 32 a game in 02/03 on 39% from
But on the other hand, I'm not sure I buy
his logic. He shot 34% from three for his career. Maybe if he played now he
would have improved that more, but besides a few outlier seasons he was pretty
Also, and this is the big kicker -- during
his 32 per game 02/03 season he got to the line 9.7 times per game. For
context, Harden got to the line 10.1 times per game last season. I don't really
see T-Mac getting many more free throws than he already did during his best
Could of have really hit 35? Probably if he
wanted to, he was fucking legit. But also, not super clear that his "more
3's and more FTs" story actually lines up. He might have not actually
gotten to the line more, and he might not have been a good enough 3PT shooter
for more threes to matter much.

A few things different tho: - The heavier
enphasize on 3 point shots would change his shot selection and development.
McGrady would work on his 3 and pick higher value shots. If Blake Griffin can
go from free throw scrub to a reliable 3pt shooter. Then Mcgrady can become a
good 3pt shooter. - Pace is much higher today and that alone would add more ppg
Not to mention his assists would go up. -
With Tmac's dribble drive ability, passing, and finishing, I could see him draw
as many fouls as Harden. He has the talent and the higher pace would help.
Tmac is a generational talent and probably
ranks toward the top if there was a master list of generational talents I can
easily 35ppg in his prime scoring year.

TMac has a point.

No he has 35-40 points, didn't you read the
[–]WigginsMVP 66 指標 5小時前
Offensive systems are a lot different now,
he wouldn't be getting as high a % of the shots he was getting in his prime if
he played in a more modern system
[–]Pistonsqedsquah 117 指標 4小時前
You do realize that’s good for him right?
He wouldn’t be shooting long twos, more threes, no more two big men in the
paint so he could finish at a higher percentage at the rim and most importantly
His shot selection gets better and so his
fg% and ppg rises.
[–]WigginsMVP 37 指標 4小時前
He wouldn't be getting 24 shot attempts per
game is what I mean
[–]Wizardsireddit270 84 指標 4小時前
Why not? Westbrook takes 22-24 shots per
game .. put prime TMac on a bad team and he could do that too .
40ppg a little ridiculous but peak McGrady
could average 35ppg for sure if he had no other stars on his team. He could
score from all three levels and was a monster in transition. And he's taller
than people think (close to 6'10) , there was no realistic way to stop him from
getting his shots off in any given game.

If only you didn’t land so hard on one leg
on every shot my guy ?? them
injuries wouldn’t take u out early
[–][TOR] Tracy McGradyRapidRaptors 131 指標 5小時前
Wdym? He was born with scoliosis, he was
bound to get injured. He played to the fullest and I say he made it pretty good
considering he was supposed to retire 3 years into his career.

He isn't getting 40 a game. 30-34 is
doable, but not 40

How would Tmac average 35-40 points a game
when even prime KD didn't? What does Tmac do better than KD as far as scoring?
[–]babbagack[S] 132 指標 5小時前
KD could average 35 today as well, its just
he joined a loaded team so that ain't gonna happen at least now, isn't
necessary. wouldn't be surprised if he eventually did had he not joined GS.
[–]Lakersso-cal_kid 57 指標 5小時前
He's not wrong. He was arguably the best
player in the league at his peak.
[–]SupersonicsScizzurp 134 指標 5小時前*
No, he wasn't. He also wouldn't average 40.
He would probably average 35 but he is going to take 25+ shots.. McGrady also
took 6-7 3's a game in his peak.
[–]Lakerslakerswiz 33 指標 5小時前
He wasn't. Maybe offensively, but Kobe's
defense was All-NBA level and he was a lockdown defender. T Mac never had that
level of defense.
[–]SupersonicsScizzurp 31 指標 5小時前*
lol forget Kobe, KG/Duncan were better.
Shaq... Kobe was also as good or better than Tmac because of defense. McGrady
wasn't a defender after he left Raps even though he had a better year in 03.
