Tracy McGrady not exactly impressed with Miami’s 22-game winning streak

mcgrady-hawksEx-NBA player Tracy McGrady is not exactly impressed with the current winning streak of NBA’s Miami Heat.

Sure, those Miami Heat have won 22 straight games, but they have it easy.

That’s pretty much the sentiment from Tracy McGrady, a former NBA player who recently took his talents over to the Chinese Basketball Association.

McGrady spent 15 years in the NBA, winning NBA’s scoring titles in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 seasons, averaging 32.1 ppg and 28.o ppg respectively.

In his NBA career, McGrady appeared in 938 games (703 started), averaging 19.6 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.4 apg and 0.9 bpg.

The 33-year-old offered his opinion on the Heat’s latest winning streak to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.

It makes sense because McGrady was part of the 2007-08 Houston Rockets team that won 22 straight games.

“I’m enjoying watching because of the unknown. But the way we did it was a lot harder. Having Yao [Ming] go out [due to injury] around the 12th game and Dikembe [Mutombo] filling his role was huge for our team. And we didn’t have three guys making $100 million.”

As Broussard reminds, that particular Rockets team wasn’t exactly star-studded.

The Rockets won 12 straight games before losing Yao Ming to a broken left foot.

At that time, a 41-year-old Dikembe Mutombo stepped up and helped the team win 10 more games.
