Houston Rockets star Tracy McGrady guarantees he will return to the Rockets for the 2009-2010 season and that he will be a major factor.

McGrady had microfracture surgery five months ago on his left knee and there is speculation he would miss most of, if not all of the upcoming season, and that his career could be in jeopardy.

McGrady spoke with FOX 26 Sports from Chicago where he is working out.

"It's really no comparison to how I feel now and I how felt trying to play all of last season," McGrady said. "My knee is feeling extremely strong. The most important thing is I'm confident in it. You guys just stay tuned. I'm out here grinding in Chicago, trying to get back right, but yes I will be playing for the Rockets in the '09-10 season.

"I will be in uniform for the Rockets this upcoming season, I guarantee you that, and I will be a lot better than I was last year. I will be back to the player that I once was.

"I will guarantee you that."

"I feel that if I go out there right now I could get somebody 30 (points)."

McGrady truly believes that because of the surgery, combined with his workout regimen, he can be better than ever.


To reach those goals McGrady has hired trainer Tim Grover of Chicago-based Attack Athletics. Grover, who is affiliated with many athletes, also works with the Lakers Kobe Bryant. He has also worked extensively with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

"Tim has done a great job motivating me," McGrady said. "Keeping me in the gym and getting my knee stronger, doing all the right things and taking all the right steps forward to get me back to where I need to be."

Grover is thrilled at McGrady's progress.

"He has all the components to come back from this type of injury and to be extremely successful, not just partially successful," Grover said. "Our goal isn't just to get him back wearing a Rockets' uniform. Our goal is for him to be again one of the elite players in the league."

McGrady has heard the speculation he could be traded and could care less.

"It's just been rumors," McGrady said. "I've been contacting (Rockets General Manager) Daryl (Morey) and those guys over at the Rockets organization. When things are bad everybody wants to speculate and throw rumors out there.

He needs to improve his shot selection as he ages & his athleticism decreases. He takes so many poor shots that he sued to compensate with his athleticism, but that isn't going to work anymore. If he can play smart he can still be an impact player.

I think "Elite" status is a stretch for the 2009 campaign. He is a phenomenal talent and I hope he just comes back healthy. It's a shame that he's missed much of his prime years nursing one ailment or another, whether it's his knee or back or whatever.

Sadly, even if he is great again this year I think that could tarnish his reputation more for me.

I used to be a huge fan, but he's looked so lackadaisical that past few years. And finally recovering to play well during a contract year on a bad team when for years they could've been contenders will only make it worse.

you can not blame him for everything thats went wrong with the rockets during their short playoff runs. His stats for the last 2 years of the playoffs are great(obviously excluding this years playoffs)

'07 playoffs- 25.3 ppg 7.3 apg 5.9 rpg
'08 playoffs- 27.0 ppg 6.8 apg 8.2 rpg

If thats lackadaisical i wish the bulls were filled with lackadaisical players.:eyebrow:

For as good as this guy was, it's hard to believe he never won a playoff series. With him being in a contract year and Yao out, he won't ever do it in Houston either. Rockets need to move on...

I agree with you both. I'm not trying to trash him, he's my favorite player ever.

But, I dont think it should've taken until now for him to finally be putting in the work to get over the injury. If after struggling through injuries the past 5 years he suddenly becomes ok again when his team is garbage and he's about to earn a new pay check, I'd be suspicious.

He wasn't lackadaisical in the playoffs, but in the regular season and in his conditioning he definitely was. He took games off a lot of the time (many of them while on the court).

If there was a surgery or rehab program he could do to return to his former greatness, he should've been doing it every summer the past few years. I find it hard to believe anythings changed this time.

My guess is he'll still have injury problems, but if he does fully recover I think its due to, in part, his contract and reputation status, when it should've been due to his own pride or the potential for team success the past few years.

Great comment! Yea I think he will be back, and it is extremely refreshing to hear that he expects to be elite again. I see no reason he cant be a top ten player again...last year he was clearly injured and it was his worst year...but every year before that his numbers were GREAT in reg season and playoffs...and he was playing injured...and he was STILL considered a top 10 player in the league. I think he can do it, and as an NBA fan, Im excited to see this passionate TMAC again.:clap:

TMac is done, he is over the hill....I am sorry to say this but he is basically a Vince carter minus the whining and moping, TMac was a great player but he is too injury prone and is apparently afraid to dunk these days because of fear he might injure his legs or something. I'm going to have to agree with Charles Barkley and that he is no longer an all-star, at most maybe a role player but no leader, the team plays better without TMac

Spurred1
07-31-2009, 11:27 PM
Best of luck to him, but I don't see how it is possible. Too many miles, years, and injuries are likely to keep affecting him. He'd be a great role player if healthy at this point.

I never said Carter was done, only that the cousins are comparable, except Tmac is "over the hill" and well is more injury prone and his numbers dropped big time. Carter has bad ankles and is a whiner, no one can deny that but him going to Orlando is going to make him want to work harder since he is now on a team closest to ever winning him a championship.

And numbers alone don't make a player great, Carter was on a rebuilding team where he and Devin were the scoring options. If Carter did not taint his reputation when he was with the Raptors and kept driving to the rim then he would have been one of the most dominating players presently playing, but instead he rather take the jump shots and mope on the sidelines when his team is losing.

I hate how people say he quit on his team. he was injured...

They're gonna need him this year. they have no clear leader. Brooks did great in the playoffs but i have a hard time seeing him do that for an entire season. not to mention the whole yao fiasco

Players who jack up 20+ shots a game with nothing to show for it are a dime a dozen in this league,been that way for years.They come and go.Players like TMac who don't rebound and play ZERO defense aren't elite.Sorry to burst your bubble TMac fan,that's just the truth.No matter how you slice it.

He was a great overall talent in his prime, scoring was just his greatest trait...dont get it twisted.

22.3 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 4.7 apg, 1.3 spg, 1 bpg, 44FG%, 34%3pt.... for his career.

oh but he sucked in the playoffs right!!??? he really just never stepped it up in the playoffs...

Tracy McGradys career Playoff numbers...

28.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 6.1 apg, 1.3 spg, 1.1 bpg, 44FG%, 35% 3pt

he was GREAT in his prime.

he certainly isnt what he once was, but calling him a "dime a dozen" player just makes u look ignorant. plain and simple.

He will give you 25 and 6 for all 8 games he plays in a season.... What a waste. And how can you have faith in a player that can't even get out of round 1? TMAC is done and has been for years now.

If TMac's stats will go up its only because he will have more touches now that Yao Ming is injured and Ron Artest is gone, he is now their only scoring option, i cannot see Brooks, Battier or Scola taking over as the first scoring options, they are good team players but not leaders which is what Houston needs.

Ya ok he avg the 3rd highest ppg in the playoffs but has he ever led a team past the first round? Houston did it last year in a long time without him.

And i know this may not be much of a big deal but it sort've is in most sports...when you are TMac and you are 6'8-6-9, im pretty sure you are going to have a advantage of getting more rebounds than Kobe who is at 6'6-6'7. Another thing you have to consider when comparing rebouds is that who's role is it to get the rebouds, it should be everybody but typically people point out that it is the bigs role to grab the boards. And i would like to see TMac's stats over the past 3 years for rebounds, not when he was a raptor and or a Magic playing SF and was young with tons of hops, whats important is to reconize that their is a negative correlation between the boards he is getting and the past couple of years

McGrady is all talk. Hes lucky if he can come back and just be a 16ppg scorer. I think he'll be effective when he gets back, but he wont be the star he used to be. He's been through too many injuries and is 30 now.

You dont know what you are talking about. You know how I know? Because when you said he plays ZERO Defense....yea mayb e last year when he was hurt, but if you have ANY basketball knowlege that goes further than the last 3 years you would know something: Youd know that on Toronto, he was KNOW as the Defebsive stopper for the team. In Orlando ALL HE DID WAS MAKE THE ALL DEFENSIVE TEAM EVERY YEAR AND WIN TWO SCORING TITLES AND SINGLE HANDEDLY TAKE HIS TEAM TO THE PLAYOSS 3 of 4 years...thats all... he plays defense man, maybe not the last two injury filled years, but who does play D when injured?

He doesnt rebound? His stats say differently for a perimeter player LOL. Again, you fail.

He is a VERY VERY GOOD passer, which is something you cant argue with. That is well known.

Jacking up 20 + shots every game? He played until feb 9th last year and only had TWO GAMES where he has more than 20 shots. So really, where you get your information form?

Even if he was jacking up shots like you say, which I already proved to you that he wasnt....TMAC is a career 44% FG% while Kobe's is 45.5% Not the biggest difference you would have thought. Thats good.

He is a SUPERSTAR...for all of the above reasons and many more I cant be bothered to feed someone. And you dont know the definition of SUPERSTAR..people know him and either hate him or love him. The fact that his NBA Jersey is #6 selling Jersey in the past 12 years should tell you something...you dont SUCK if people are buying your jerseys and coming to your games LOL... CHeck it out on Yahoo Sports if u dont believe me.

The only bubble that got bursted here was yours.

Wow, for a guy who basically "quit" on his team they were better without him than with him. To turn a corner, buy him out while you can and move on. Brooks and company are a much better team without him.

I'm not calling him a quitter but if I remember correctly, after they played Boston (in Boston) last year his team mates wouldn't even say his name thinking he gave up on some plays. It doesn't matter what we think, but what about his team? I'm not going to deny the guys talent but conditioning plays a huge part in avoiding most injuries. An earlier post does raise a valid question, why this year? :eyebrow: Good luck to T-Mac and the Rocket fans who have been injury bitten for years. Hopefully, this year will be different.

Lmao "Defensive stopper"...sorry but the bum who sells Laker championship shirts on the corner of Crenshaw Blvd. isn't. Marc Jacobs...selling jerseys doesn't make you an elite player,your game does.Hilarious that you would use jersey sells to determine status.Yao Ming must be a legend in your eyes then.Look Broseph the second a player has to be debated on his status automatically makes it a lost cause.There's no debating elite players.

:confused:

He needs to improve his shot selection as he ages & his athleticism decreases. He takes so many poor shots that he sued to compensate with his athleticism, but that isn't going to work anymore. If he can play smart he can still be an impact player.

said that for years...when he was younger and with the magic he would never drive to the hope and draw a foul when we needed a few points instead he would just jack some shot up
