Tracy McGrady too stiff to play fourth quarter

Tracy McGrady had played at least 19 minutes in nine of the Piston’s 10 previous games coming into Monday night’s game in Charlotte, the second night of a back-to-back.

McGrady played 10 minutes in the first half (scoring two points) but none in the second half, and the Detroit Free Press explains why.

He said (Pistons coach John) Kuester asked him to start the fourth quarter, but said he was stiff from missing the entire third quarter.

Interesting. On some level it comes back to trusting McGrady. How much the coach and teammates can trust him when it counts. Does this impact that?

    see T Mac, thats why the Bulls didn’t pick you up, the writing was on the wall, besides they didn’t need a disgruntled old guy funking up the locker room. rub some dirt on it and get ur ass back in the game!
