Tracy McGrady's 13 points in 33 seconds deserves a deep rewind

  • Published: 27 April 2019
  • It’s December 9th, 2004, in Houston, Texas. Less than a third of the way through the regular season, the surging 16-4 Spurs are taking on the middling 8-11 Rockets. San Antonio is inbounding the ball up 2 points with 11.2 seconds left. But just a half-minute ago the Spurs were in full control up eight points.

    We’re used to this Spurs team. Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan continue to show why this team is a favorite to win their second championship in three years. Their opponents on the other hand verge on unrecognizable. A new arena, new jerseys, and a new look roster haven’t hidden the blemishes of this Rockets team. But with Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, if nothing else, they’ve been very exciting and are looking to add themselves to the list of threats in the conference.

    So how did we get to this point so quickly: a team known for their stingy defense squandered an overwhelming lead? We’re about to reach the peak of a moment that’s regarded as one of the greatest individual comebacks in NBA History, but to get there and the moments leading up to the climb let’s rewind.

                                                    These videos might be getting too negative for the sake of negativity. I understand that you're attempting to be funny by calling these guys scrubs and bums, and I understand that you don't truly mean that in every case. But tell a "joke" enough times, and you can start to believe it.

                                                    These dudes put in work to get to, and stay in, the NBA. I'm not going to attempt to knock you down a peg or contrast your effort with theirs, but just remember that they practiced, pushed, and often persevered, so we should all respect them for stepping into the arena and getting their bodies bruised and bloodied for our enjoyment.

                                                    Don't be a stereotypical critic.
