SOURCE: Tracy McGrady doubtful for rest of Finals with “extreme fatigue”


Tracy McGrady fulfilled a lifelong dream on Sunday: playing in the NBA Finals. Sure his team was getting crushed and the game was already decided before the Spurs put him in, but that’s not the point. The point is TRACY MCGRADY was PLAYING in an NBA FINALS game. Did you ever think you’d see that? No one did. Even his parents. Tracy’s mom, “I love my boy, but even I couldn’t watch him in the playoffs with the Rockets. That was brutal. He sucked more than my vacuum does. I didn’t think he’d ever be signed.” Ouch!

Well, turns out Tracy has a special skill no one realized: garbage man. No, not collecting trash (although he might contribute more to the team that way), but playing during garbage time. And that’s exactly what he got to do in Game 2. He played 8 whole minutes. EIGHT. That’s like a whole century in garbage time. Not surprisingly, it completely wore him out. Sources say he’s now doubtful for the rest of the finals with “extreme fatigue.” Imagine running around for 8 minutes when you only run a minute or so every 2 weeks. You’d be tired too.

Tracy spoke about his Game 2 performance on Monday, “It was fun. I actually took a shot at the basket, I wasn’t sure I’d remember how to do that. Plus I got 2 rebounds AND 2 assists. That’s a double one fifth double. In the FINALS. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that. But man my arms are so sore now. I’m exhausted. I feel like I ran like 5 marathons in a row. I’m not sure I’ll be able to play. I’m not even sure I’ll have the energy to give the team my amazing high fives and fist bumps. We’ll see.”

If the Spurs are without Tracy McGrady for the rest of the Finals, it could be a major loss for them. Tiago Splitter’s already afraid to show his face in public after what LeBron did to him, they can’t afford to lose another key garbage time player. Plus McGrady had a triple double in Game 1: 12 high fives, 11 fist bumps, 10 water cups filled. Who else can put up numbers like that? Matt Bonner? He’s too busy actually playing and explaining to Chris Bosh that the word “bone” is not in the pronunciation of his last name.

If he’s going to lose Tracy McGrady for the series, Gregg Popovich could always call Derrick Rose to fill in. Derrick would be perfect to throw on a suit, sit on the bench, and do some serious cheerleading. If he’s “mentally ready” for it, anyway.
