The Houston Chronicle Seems To Dislike Tracy McGrady
His latest irritating move is that he recently visited the one and only Dr. James Andrews to get an opinion on his ailing knee. Andrews recommended one week off for T-Mac and a slow return to the court with restricted minutes. McGrady, however, has instead chosen to just shut himself down until Christmas. And that decision has not gone over well with some people, nor Houston's largest newspaper.
Yep, the Houston Chronicle is officially fed up with T-Mac's crap and has decided to go directly for the throat. Right on the Chronicle's Rockets team homepage, mid-way down, they've got a Tracy McGrady Injury Ticker that alerts all the citizens of the city to exactly how much money the lazy bum is making while he rides the pine of his own free volition during these difficult economic times. Here's a screen shot of the ticker as it currently stands. (Update: the paper has since taken down the "pay for no play" portion of the ticker. Losers.)
Not only do they throw his own quote out there about why he shut himself down, but they make it loud and clear what his "Pay for no play" total is. Which through 4 games is about 25 times what the average person in Houston makes during an entire year.
Damn that's some harsh treatment by the Chronicle. Although at this point, it may actually be warranted.
By the way, something tells me T-Mac may stop giving interviews to the paper from this point on. Just a hunch.
