John Hollinger: Tracy McGrady is ‘clearly’ the best passer on the team

Just to follow up on the ongoing discussion of whether Tracy McGrady should supplant Rodney Stuckey as the team’s starting point guard, John Hollinger weighed in on the topic in his ESPN chat today (Hat tip: Steve Kays):

I’m not sure he (McGrady) has the legs to start every night — he looked like he needed a nap in the Charlotte game — but he’s very clearly the best (only?) passer on the team and it’s a marked difference from watching Stuckey and Bynum pound it for 23 seconds.

Also, for what it’s worth, McGrady told SLAM’s Eric Woodyard that the Boston game was the best he’s felt on a court since 2008.

    Joe Dumars has completely and purposely screwed this team up in my opinion.  If he wants to coach then do it, but quit hiring these patsies who’ll do his bidding making everyone involved look like they need a clue.  You want new blood hire someone outside the loop and get out of the way, like Reggie Theus maybe.  He’d make a great coach and has proven results at New Mexico and doing a better job with the Kings than the current coach and with less talent no less.

    @Tony:
    Thunder Cats was one of my favorite shows as a kid.  I think it was really awesome how they combined something really cool, thunder, with something playful, cats.  It was the best of both worlds in the worst of times.  It is indicative of who we are as humans, and who they were as cats.
    My comment has as much to do with your comment as your comment has to do with this post.  Thereby, we both win.  And by “we” I mean “I”.

    couldn’t agree more. Hollinger is on point. Watching Will Bynum pound the ball for 23 seconds makes me want to smash the TV – get him out of the rotation.

    trade Prince & Wilcox or Max to Memphis for Zach (Memphis is definitely going to trade Zach at the deadline)

    trade Bynum & Rip to Washington for Blatche & Hinrich (Blatche is a questionable character guy but i like his upside. Hinrich is a combo guard who can run an offense & a good defensive player. He & Stuckey would cause lots of problems for other teams bench players)

    What would be the incentive for either of those teams to make those deals? If Memphis wants only expiring contracts, why not just let Randolph expire? The Pistons would definitely have to give up at minimum one of their young prospects (Daye/Jerebko/Monroe) or a first round pick to get him.

    And as for Washington, even if they are really shopping Blatche, they can certainly come up with a better deal for him. He’s productive and signed to a reasonable long-term deal, yet they are going to take an aging, locked up shooting guard in return, when they just got rid of their aging, locked up shooting guard in Gil?

    I’m all for a trade. But come on. People have to be realistic about both what little value most Pistons players have right now and what the needs of the other team are.
