Tracy McGrady Laughs As Coach John Kuester Is Ejected

I don't want to take anything away from Pistons head coach John Kuester, who seemed to be doing a pretty good job of alienating his team via the Richard Hamilton situation. But the biggest news out of the Detroit fallout last night from a Houston perspective was simply Tracy McGrady

McGrady's ambivalence when he's not motivated is nothing new. Behind the jump is a fun clip (via Clutchfans) from a game against the Toronto Raptors that might help you see that.

So it wasn't really much of a surprise when McGrady was one of five players to walkout on practice yesterday for the Pistons. You would really think that a player of McGrady's now-limited skills would be more grateful to the organization that gave him a chance. Apparently, one of the only organizations that would, as demonstrated by his one-year veteran's minimum contract. Hamilton's benching gave McGrady a chance to start, and he's been a decent player in the way that the elder Scottie Pippen was for the Trail Blazers. Perhaps there should be a little more respect given to a coach who was willing to put someone in McGrady's precarious position this offseason into the lineup on a regular basis.

Or perhaps not.
