like the Lakers. A team like the Celtics. Not Orlando."
There is that scenario, that McGrady makes a stand that $1.35 million
isn't enough, remains unsigned as camps open and waits for an injury
that nudges an anxious team to dip into the mid-level exception. He's
still barely 31. Maybe he can make a dent for somebody in the regular
season and win a game or two in the playoffs.
Even when healthy, I've never been a big McGrady fan. He reminds me of Vince Carter, a guy with great stats unable to carry a team.
But… IF he's healthy and IF he's willing to take a million dollar contract, then why not take a flyer?
