I was watching this game live when it happened, and my first instincts were to blame Tracy McGrady. After seeing it again, I am even more disgusted by the behavior of Tracy McGrady.
Throwing the ball at Jackson's head was inexcusable. Then, as Jackson was heading over to him, he put his arms up as if to say "You want a piece of me?" Then, BJax shoved him, which is exactly what I would have done. All Bobby was doing was walking over to see what was up, like "TMac, why'd you throw the ball at my HEAD?" Then McGrady has the nerve to provoke a fight instead of saying to Bobby, "Sorry man, my bad." That's all he had to do, instead he acted like the punk that he is.


The first game this season, Miami-Orlando, TMac got into it with Bruce Bowen, one of my favorite players in the Eastern Conference. I let that go, figuring it was an abberation. But now, I have no doubts that McGrady is a punk.

After the game, when Craig Sager was interviewing him, he STILL didn't apologize, saying that Jackson hit him in the air and that's why he threw the ball at his head. Everyone saw the tape, McGrady is lying and only making himself look worse.

I just caught the end of NBA2Night and they showed Bobby Jackson in the back of the arena being escorted out by several security guards and then all of a sudden ripping his arms away from them and running away. I think he was probably going back to try and find McGrady. They cut the tape off there so I'm not sure what else happened.

Yeah I don't reallt like T-Mac. He has skills and all but he should have been loyal to Toronto. Bailing on a team that pulled you out of high school at the 7th pick is wrong.

Actually Jackson wasn't going after McGrady when he was being escorted off the court. Some fans had thrown ice at him (which hit him) while he was walking towards the lockerrooms, and that's what pissed him off.

I think you nailed it Hales..T-Mac started the mess when he tossed the ball at Jackson for no real reason. I saw the post-game interviews on TBS too..what a punk [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/img]
