Where do you guys think Tracy Mcgrady ranks among the best in the league today??? He was a top 5 player about 2 years back but now I see him as a top 10 player...

My favorite player is Tmac and I rank him between 10-15. And i'm not biased, I just quickly checked all the players I would put infront of him and there it is. Maybe even 6-10.

10-15 range IMO.

After last year he fell out of the top 10, now hes in the top 15-20 range but Im hoping for a bounce back year from him similar to other superstars once they hit their later years (Pierce, Iverson)

he's a 10-15 player he does have an all around game scoring 30 points a game isnt everything. but when tmac is in that zone where hes averaging 25 7 and 6 he's an mvp candidate like last year. with yao coming back and artest in houston scoring will be much easier for him so i expect him to have a career year not scoring wise but he'll have the total package.

Well my top-10 would be:

1. Kobe
2. Lebron
3. Duncan
4. CP3
5. Wade
6. KG
7. Dirk
8. Yao
9. Howard
10. T-Mac

I think he's still top 10....maybe 11 or 15....Deron Williams and Steve Nash rival him....

rhino17
08-30-2008, 07:17 PM

2) Lebron

5. Garnett

7. D Howard
8. Dirk
9. Amare
10. Yao
11. Bosh ( I have always thought he was underrated up there in Canada)
12. TMac
13. Deron Williams
14. Carmelo Anthony
15. Al Jefferson (yes he plays on a bad team. Look at his efficiency, and #3 in double doubles)

This is only my opinion

now with artest...even less of the scoring will be put on his shoulders so his body shouldn't be as tired hence more games played/less injuries

MELO 15
08-30-2008, 09:21 PM
kobe, lebron, melo, wade, TD, Iverson, cp3, chris bosh, D WILLIAM, D12, KG, then Tmac

Lol just be blunt sucka....tell him why his list is bad....I wouln't in my wildest dreams but Nash over Paul at this point....nor would I say Melo is better than T-Mac....T-Mac is actually an above average defender....not great.....but above average....and can rebound and pass better than Melo....and T-Mac is better than Baron Davis and AI at this point....he does everything on the court better....

tmac will be 5-10 this season duly because the rockets are extremely improved this season..they got scolandry/artest and barry...

who would people prefer t-mac or melo? i think players such as melo and t-mac and a.i are all very close and very debatable as to who is better

08-31-2008, 09:10 AM
i love how some ppl have him and Yao both in top 10 and say they are and they dont get outta the 1st round still.

Here some ppl i rank higher then him

Kobe,Lebron,Wade,Cp3,Deron,Yao,Bosh,TD,KG,Dwight,A mare

Here some on same level

Boozer,Brand(higher group if healthy),Dirk,Nash

LakerzDQ
08-31-2008, 09:28 AM

well tmac is much better defensivly then melo and thier the same offensivly... the only knock on tmac is his health... but if you take health into consideration brand and wade should be lower on everyones list too... i'd say he can easily be 5-10 its a question of how healthy he is...

after those clear cut superstars..

you got.. Pierce, dirk, amare, dwight, williams,nash,melo,t-mac,yao and a few others that u can put in many diffrent orders into the 7-15 range

val_modus
08-31-2008, 11:44 AM
when healthy a top 10 player i mean comeon you guys, the man took a Yaoless team to the 4th seed in the packed West, and a 22 game winning streak, 10 of those games without Yao, sure he cant fill up 40 points a game for a span and simply take over every game with his scoring but look at everything else he does to make his team win, the passing, the rebounding, and yes at times the defense, i remember he had a game saving block against the Warriors a year ago to send the game into OT and they end up winning, IMO you guys are starting to UNDERRATE him, after this season is over he will retake his status as Allstar and depending on what they do in the playoffs SUPERSTAR

richardle9
08-31-2008, 12:16 PM
a lil off topic but is it true that tmac cant play for team usa cause he got into a fight with that puerto rican guy? or he just doesnt get invited anymore?

prash
08-31-2008, 12:34 PM
McGrady is a top 10 player. Who cares if his stats were poor last season.

He did his part to power the Rockets to a 22 game win streak, which is far more significant than averaging 28+ ppg.

ShaunRiching9
08-31-2008, 12:37 PM
Lebron
Kobe
Duncan
Garnett
Pierce
Wade
Amare
Nash
Paul
Dwight

they are all better then him now and theres more i didnt mention but he is still an all star no question

Frank Costanza
08-31-2008, 02:38 PM
T-Mac is one of the few players in this generation in the SF/SG era in that one man can take over a game in any moment . Now consistency is one thing and injuries are a whole other. People will judge him poorly his playoff performances, but what he does bring which is hard to find is that abillity to be "Unstoppable" when he gets that look in his eyes that he cannt be beat. Fans of his wish it could be that way every game but when things begin to click the Rockets will be the best team in the wsst with Mcgrady as an MVP candidate then he can be a top 5 , for now i voted top 10

alexander_37
08-31-2008, 04:33 PM
tmac was 6th in the MVP race if i remember correctly and was as high as 3-4 at some points

he is one of the best still is a future HOFER and will be one of the better players in history

and IMO dirk is overrated and shouldnt be able to look at the top 15 let alone 10

he shouldnt even know any number from 1-15

BRADfromOZ
08-31-2008, 04:48 PM
I see him as 11th or 12th best player right now. He's just outside the top 10. This is only due to his injuries though. Give him a full season and i'll gladly make him top 5.

lalakobe24
08-31-2008, 04:54 PM

1kobe

6tmac

hes in the top 10

king2218
08-31-2008, 04:57 PM
When "NOT" injured, he is a top 10 player in the league....remember what he did in the playoffs this last year, he dropped 40+ against utah, while playing with a bad shoulder and a bad knee which he had surgeries on...

I think this year he's going to have the year that kobe had last year...He's got a better team, should be healthier....He should be a top 3 MVP candidate, averaging about 25, 5, 5...

fins08
08-31-2008, 04:57 PM

Your wrong about T mac being a better rebounder, look up the stats, and Melo has a better fg percentage. and they ar not the same offensively. Melo can do it in the block, wich is something T mac can't. Melo is the purest scorer in the game today, T mac isn't. the one thing he does have and not by much is defense. Melo is the better player

bball1217
09-01-2008, 12:09 AM
My top 10:
1. Kobe Bryant
2. Lebron James
3. Chris Paul
4. Dwayne Wade
5. Dwight Howard
6. Carmelo Anthony
7. Kevin Garnett
8. Steve Nash
9. Yao Ming
10. Tracy McGrady

I'm a Rockets fan and I think (of course when/if healthy) McGrady/Yao are top 10 players at 8-12 range.

But then again that is the problem, staying healthy...

he was the heart and soul of the historical 22 game winning streak without his fellow superstar yao ming. Tmac may be aging but he's still got alot left in the tank.

We already got people predicting the rockets are going to be the 08-09 champions

tmac will be 5-10 this season duly because the rockets are extremely improved this season..they got scolandry/artest and barry...

then by that logic, Ray Allen is a top 2 shooting guard. C'mon dude, team success is only 1 tiny part of picking
