If you even read this i want you to know that I still believe in you. I'm not one of those bandwagon jumpers who are wanting to trade you because you've been injured the past few years. You cant help that you're injured. I don't understand how people can say you're washed up after just a year ago you averaged 27 points grabbing 8 rebounds a game and averaging almost 7 assists while shooting 42 percent from the field. Not only did you compile those stats but you got them while suffering from an injury in your shoulder and your knee.
Nobody remembers how much you carried us through the playoffs last year even though we lost the series. I still remember the game were you scored 13 points in 35 seconds ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfurCV1FDpM)...i was one of the people who stayed at the game to watch the miracle happen. You spent your first few years in Toronto under the shadows under your cousin Vince but everyone knew you had the ability to be a star in the game. Then you were traded to the Magic where you and Grant Hill were supposed to be a duel threat. However Hill was sidelined with injury and you had to carry the team on your back. I mean how can people expect you to get out of the first round carrying a team by yourself and being an 8th seed. The Magic years were your most dominant when you were awarded nba scoring leader for 2 years and getting put in the all star game for the first time.
Then you were traded to the Rockets. The same year you scored 13 points in 35 seconds Although you had the yao in the playoffs with you you still lost to a better mavericks team. The next season you started to suffer from severe back spasms which cost you some of your explosiveness. Yao went down before the playoffs started and so did the houston rockets. The next year you lose yao again and lose to the jazz for a 2nd year in a row. Its no one's fault that we haven't been able to get out of the first round. You weren't given the fire power to compete with the teams in the playoffs
However this is your year for return. All the pieces are in place. With Aaron Brooks and Lowry at the point guard position, Wafer(maybe James White) backing you up at the SG position, Battier backing Artest(if he returns up at SF, Landry backing up Scola at PF and the 2nd best center in the league the Rockets are poised to be the only threat in the West that can stop the NBA champions. I believe you can come in and still play with a high intensity. You dont have to put up 20 points a game because that's not what we need. We need ball movement hustle and somebody who can score by creating their own shots( which is you). During the 2nd round of the playoffs where we lost to LA by blowout victories we needed you to create your own shot and put up points when we couldn't score. I dont believe all the bull about the Rockets being better without you and Yao thats just retard opinion. But anyways take your time during your rehab process don't rush back like you did last year we can manage a few games without you but we will definately need you down the stretch and in the playoffs. This goes for Yao too. Good luck Mr. Mcgrady
A Forever Mcgrady Fan
P.S. If you really want to get the Rockets fans back on your side on the first game against the lakers you will have to completely make Kobe look like Shawn Bradley after you dunked on him ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKOCy9R-h2A)...Embarass him, Anger him, intimidate him, light kobe's ass up!!(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRWhfH4qkcA)
