"He's way, way ahead of schedule," Morey said. "He's already playing. I don't think anyone could have predicted he would be playing now. He still has a long way to go. There is a lot of rust to shake off."

Good to hear. Would love to see T-Mac on a mission and trying to get back to his form.

Hopefully for the Rockets, he bounces back. It's a contract year, so he could be a pleasant surprise for them this season.

He'll be ready and than he'll get hurt again. It won't matter how ready he is, he'll still get hurt.

I think hell play atleest 70 games this year, and will put up great numbers, as the only option :P

I've numerous times that I believe he'll make a comeback, so I'll stand by my statement. Great news.

He's just saying that so teams would be more interested in T-Mac.

^^ Yeah. The whole T-mac saga has been a huge disappointment.

Maybe he lasts to the playoffs, but it doesn't matter, he'd still be a first round virgin!

If Tmac comes back to anything close to what he was it's gonna be a hell of a pick up at the deadline!

Looking forward to a great season from T-Mac

A T-Mac on a mission is just scary

Prove the haters wrong big homey!

Exactly!

I cant see him ever getting more than the MLE after all the time he's missed due to injuries and never leading a team out of rd 1. Actually the MLE will be a stretch!

if he has a good year, and the rockets can keep him for the MLE they should. IMO

I feel bad for him. his body cant take the rigors of the game. hope he finally is healthy this time

i think hell rush it and reinjure it. he should rather take his time and come back when everything really is fine.

I dont think he can handle an entire NBA season. He's bound to get hurt. His minutes need to be monitored at least for the first two months.

I remember the days of hoping your oft injured player would finally make a go of it. Sam Bowie was our big hope in the 80's, McGrady's and Bowie's will never stay healthy, Rockets fans your best bet is to take old TMac to the nearest vet and ask him to put him down!

It's best for us all!

His body will break down again regardless of how he is rehabbing now. He is not getting any younger.

Contract year, I'm sure he will play through as much pain for his last contract.

Hope he can make a strong comeback!

Yet he's still better then a healthy Greg Oden even when hurt.

No matter how great he feels he will always hurt something else..it doesnt matter if he is a year a head of schdule..him and Yao have got to have the rockets insurance rates sky high

Actually our best bet is to hope that he plays great up until the trade deadline, and then get something good for him. Then if he get's injured again which he will, it won't be the Rockets problem anymore.

He may be ahead of schedule, but he will get injured again during the season. I feel bad for Rocket fans

Oh yeah Houston will be in good shape any way it goes. McGrady is a tough guy to guard but he's always hurt, if he was able to play injury free then the Rockets would be in business but if something goes south with TMac then the Rockets can trade him or just let him expire.

Isnt it ironic how TMAC and Grant Hill were suppose to be the heart of the Magic franchise back when and both went down the same road with injuries yr in yr out and both got 100 million dollar contracts. Thats alot of money for healthy players let alone injuried ones.

T-Mac "way, way ahead of schedule"

What, does that mean he's already out for the season?

:rimshot:



In all seriousness, I hope he'll get well and recover. NBA injuries are something I never like to see, even for players I don't like too much. Good luck to him.

that response alone says you know im right. So since you cant think of a credible response you just take the easy way out and attack my team.

You got owned deal with it and just move on.

Your the one attacking my team "TMac is better hurt than a healthy Oden".

Why are you trying to start an arguement anyway, got nothing better to do!
If you think TMac is better than Oden when he's healthy or hurt that's your opinion and I could careless.

TMac is better than 90% of the NBA if he's healthy. Trash talking is fine by me but you should really consider waiting til your team is out of the lottery to do it.

And the response I gave was credible so maybe you should deal with it and move on. Before you take a shot at another teams players you should find some room in your little pea brain and expect some jabs back your way!

It's hard to imagine money still being a motivating factor for Tmac.

Good luck to the Rockets who were stuck with a $20 mil paper weight.

I hear what you're saying, but from a Heat fans POV I have to think T-Mac is trying to come back strong because that is exactly what JO is doing for us right now. Yea he's getting paid a stupid amount of money to suck, but he has a contract season coming up so he is hitting the weights hard and is going to play as hard as he can this year. I have no reason to believe T-Mac's mindset would be any different.

Besides, these players spend their millions like they're billions. They always need money. Look at Iverson. He's strictly playing for money now though he's amassed a fortune throughout his career. He was going to potentially end his career in Europe :pity:

lol what.. he never wants even considering playing in europe.
secondly, AI wants to win. he got all the other accolades but a ring. money is not a factor. winning is.
