    We used to talk about what a veteran friendly GM Dumars is. Maybe this is a peace-time dividend.

    I take it all back. I'm pumped!

    TMac was a good gamble by Joe. If it doesn't work out, oh well, only 1 year.

    He seems like a mature guy who has been humbled. 31 isn't that old if the injury really has healed.

    Stuckey/ Bynum
    Hamilton/ Gordon/ White
    Prince/ McGrady/ Daye/ Summers
    Jerebko/ Maxiell/ Charlie V
    Wallace/ Monroe/ Kwame/ Wilcox


    We have too many dudes don't we?


    Have Summers and White signed yet?


    Maybe we'll be trading n to get back n-1.

    I believe we have 15 guys signed. Kwame is a free agent.

    Did Weezie sign his option or what? I must have missed that.

    I don't like him wearing that number, at all!

    But at least we have another sleepy eyed dude wearing it! :stirthepot:

    Anyway, these are huge "what if's", but what if the knee is fine now? What if he can be the old T-mac for us? What if he bounces back so well that we HAS to start?

    Who cares 'bout some rookie, err, second year player getting their minutes cut if SleepyMac can resurrect his career?

    What if TMac resurrects his career and has a great season? Does Joe sign him or Stuckey next summer? Does he just let Prince walk so he can sign both TMac and Stuckey? Hmmm....:stirthepot:

    TMac only heals for 3-4 mo. at a time.

    If T-Mac is healthy, he will play. Whether that is fair or not, good or not, long term or short term, doesn't matter.

    He will play. I do not think Joe brought him in to ride the pine.

    I think folks forget the important roles vets played during our championship run up. Uncle Cliffy and Big Nasty in particular.

    Soon we'll be looking back on what an important role veterans played in our low lottery run!

    I have absolutely no expectations for Tracy McGrady.
    Anything that he can give us (production, trade value) will be a total bonus in my book.

    I just hope that Q has the testicular fortitude to pull the plug if T-Mac stinks up the joint.

    I think we're about due for a success story, maybe T-Mac is it.

    I'm kinda hoping that Greg Monroe is it.
    It would also be pretty cool to see T-White come outta nowhere and be really really good.

    Perhaps T-White should play with Fort Wayne for a couple of months to see some action.
