  2. Stephen Jackson says disagreement with Popovich over how good a player S-Jax is

    Apr 19, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    You’ve seen the Spurs play and you know how it works — everyone fits in their role on the team. Even Tim Duncan and Tony Parker — they have a bigger role with more touches but it is still a role, a cog in the machine. Stephen Jackson was not fitting that role so he…

  3. The T-Mac In Winter

    SAN ANTONIO — Tracy McGrady is a shockingly young man. He will not turn 34 until May. He’s younger than, among others, Adrian Beltre, Tom Brady, Bradley Cooper and Kate Hudson. He’s too young to be President (not that this seems an especially viable career option) and he’s younger than all but one of the…

  4. Ginobili will play for Spurs Wednesday, McGrady will not

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    For a few minutes in the final game of the season, the Spurs are going to roll out most of their A-List team and get them a little run. Manu Ginobili will return to play some limited run for the Spurs Wednesday night when they take on Minnesota in an otherwise meaningless game (the Spurs…

  5. Tracy McGrady bids goodbye to NBA fans on FaceBook

    Oct 14, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    T-Mac has left the league he excited, dominated, disappointed, and called home for over a decade. He’s headed to China, and in that decision comes a departure from the NBA which he has been a part of the tapestry of his entire career. McGrady took to FaceBook recently to thank some people and some fans.…

  6. Report: McGrady officially signs deal to play in China

    Oct 9, 2012, 11:54 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    We told you it was coming and it didn’t take long to get the deal done. Tracy McGrady, wildly popular in China from his days playing next to Yao Ming, has signed a deal to play with Qingdao in the Chinese league this season, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. This is a one-year contract.…

  7. Report: Iverson not likely to sign, play season in China

    Oct 9, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    We showed you the highlight of Allen Iverson crossing over a guy in China that looked just like the old days (then missing the shot, which looked like the new days). But that one play is not the reality. The play was part of Iverson playing in an exhibition in China against Stephon Marbury’s Beijing…

  8. Report: Tracy McGrady finalizing deal to play in China

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Tracy McGrady was looking for another year in the NBA, a 16th NBA season. But not finding a guaranteed deal, he is taking his talents to the port city of Qingdao, China, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. McGrady, 33, will likely complete the deal within the next couple days and leave for China within…

  9. Report: Tracy McGrady considering playing in China

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:15 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Reality is sinking in for Tracy McGrady — training camps are open and underway, teams basically have their rosters set, Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played in the NBA in two seasons but he’s got a contract, yet McGrady can’t find a team to give him a shot. Well, not on this continent anyway. And without other…

  10. J.R. Smith thinks McGrady could help Knicks. That’s’ great.

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:43 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    You know who some of the worst judges of talent and team building skills are? No, stop it with the Bobcats jokes. It’s other players. They often see players for what they were not are, or have inflated (or undersized) understanding of a player based on what they have seen in person in a game…

  11. Tracy McGrady worked out for Spurs, Knicks up next

    Sep 13, 2012, 12:47 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady is auditioning for jobs. Like a lot of veterans he is finding the financial realities of the new CBA are keeping teams from guaranteeing contracts for veterans, so he is out there working it trying to find a team that will sign him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Still searching for an…

  12. It’s come to this: McGrady “might” work out for Bobcats

    Sep 4, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    There was a time when Tracy McGrady was one of those players you stopped flipping channels to watch, he was that special, that entertaining. Injuries robbed us (and the Rockets) of that McGrady. He’s still a serviceable guard just trying to find a spot in the league. Any spot, apparently. There is this tweet from…

  13. Shane Battier reminds us that Yao Ming was very good

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Miami Heat forward Shane Battier was taking questions from fans on twitter Thursday night and one answer was interesting (hat tip to Sheridan Hoops):  Yao Ming RT @LeonD17: @ShaneBattier Best player you played with other than lebron and dwade When you look at Battier’s other teammates over the years it makes sense. Tracy McGrady was…

  14. Possessions and You: The Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    From time to time, we’ll take a look at what teams looked like on offense last year using some basic but nifty charts. Today the Atlanta Hawks.   I’ve done these before with overlays of production, but it’s difficult to get a real indication relative to usage. Points per minute? Still impacted by too many…

  15. Jeff Van Gundy questions if Magic fans should stay loyal

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Is it really worth it? Every fan of a team has asked themselves that at some point. Is the emotional commitment worth the payoff? Are there better things I could be doing with my time and money? Usually we come back around to yes on that question, because the ties to the team are not…

  16. Good news Bulls fans: At least you’re not getting McGrady

    Aug 8, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    After finally signing Marquis Teague, the Bulls have enough money left under the hard-cap apron to sign one more player — a rookie on a minimum deal. Not a second year player, their minimum is too high. Rookie minimum only. You want some good news, Bulls fans? That means you can’t sign Tracy McGrady. You…

  17. Who is left in free agency? Here’s a list of the key names.

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We have made it through the bulk of free agency. Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few…

  18. Wednesday And-1 links: Bulls interested in Tracy McGrady? Really?

    Aug 1, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Eminem likes facebook. • The Bulls are done adding to the roster… except…

  19. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: – The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. – The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

  20. One way or another, it will be summer of change for Hawks

    May 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Few teams are going to have a more interesting off-season than the Atlanta Hawks. From the general manager whose contract is up to the coach with an option hanging out there — not to mention the Josh Smith trade request — there are nothing but questions in Atlanta this summer. In theory they could look…

  21. Celtics could cripple Hawks with another win to end the weekend

    May 6, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-Atlanta Hawks at Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics haven’t played exceptional basketball during their NBA Playoffs series against the Atlanta Hawks, but they’ve got the job done well enough to take a 2-1 lead heading into Sunday evening’s game at the Garden. Atlanta’s going to have to come up with some road magic of their own to end the weekend,…

  22. Josh Smith says he’ll play in Sunday’s Game 4 vs. Celtics

    May 5, 2012, 1:53 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Atlanta fared surprisingly well in Game 3 without Josh Smith, losing a closer-than-expected contest to a Celtics team that saw both Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen return to the lineup. The Hawks won’t have to go without him again in Game 4, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com: Josh Smith acknowledges the left knee sprain…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Rajon Rondo’s triple-double helps Celtics to overtime victory over Hawks

    May 4, 2012, 10:43 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    The Boston Celtics looked anything but exceptional in the first half of Friday night’s Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks, but Rajon Rondo was able to find his rhythm in the second half as the hosting Celtics needed overtime to pick up a win in their first game at home in the Garden this postseason.…

  24. Tracy McGrady had impressive first half for Hawks before spraining his ankle

    May 4, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks

    The Atlanta Hawks were definitely expected to struggle on Friday night when they found out that Josh Smith would be missing in action for Game 3 against the Boston Celtics. They didn’t really feel his absence in the first half, however, thanks to Tracy McGrady turning back the hands of time once he was summoned…

  25. With Josh Smith out due to injury, Hawks need someone to step up in Game 3 against Celtics

    May 4, 2012, 4:09 PM EDT

    Ivan Johnson and Paul Pierce

    The Boston Celtics picked up a solid victory without Rajon Rondo in the lineup earlier this week in Atlanta, evening their series against the Hawks at one game apiece. One has to wonder, then, what might happen on Friday night now that momentum is in the favor of the Celtics, the game will be in…
