“I thought we gave in a little bit tonight.'' - Johnny Davis
Hell, I would hate to see a lot.
"It's the last day of the trip, and everybody pretty much wants to go home and get the show over with.” - Tracy McGrady
No shit, but that does not give you the right to not play basketball. And, yes it a show. A show that 17,317 paid to see you play in - not to mention the hundreds of thousands of others who pay for cable to see you play. The Orlando Magic is the ONLY reason that I have cable TV. Oh, and can we consider all of us who pay hundreds of dollars a year in merchandise to make your pockets fat. It is a show - one that I expect performers to perform.
My dad moved down here a little less than a year ago. I convinced him to go watch the Magic and that he would be amazed at how awesome McGrady is. It only took a few games and he was hooked. So much so, that we got season tickets this year. I can remember a day when I could brag about something McGrady would do in every game. This year, I am struggling to come up with 2.
This is your team McGrady - it starts and ends with you. You have got to light a fire under this group.
