Saw that fans were going nuts about this topic over at SpursReport.Com because some Houston fan proposed the following:

"Lets be honest. The rockets will never be champ with T Mac in the team and his jumpshots in the four quarter.
He has to play for the team, not for him.
I will, trade him for Manu in a second."

Spurs-sheriff - I'm sure you’d trade Manu Ginobili in a heartbeat for Tracy McGrady but I’m not sure the San Antonio Spurs would approve of your move, after all why would they want to trade their go to guy when the game is on the line? Ginobili is a true team player who has never complained about his role with the team (coming off the bench. etc., etc.), plus he’s clearly demonstrated to us all that he can certainly be a starter on any other team in the league. Warriors such as Ginobili are hard to come by, besides one has to look at the bigger picture and realize that there’s more to Ginobili’s game than just scoring, he has the nature leadership abilities and skills that have enabled him to take over games and be affective when he needs to be. The dynamic abilities that Ginobili possesses are not taught, besides I don’t believe McGrady would fit in with the Spurs, so to answer your question, would I trade Ginobili? I’d have to be crazy……..Go Spurs Go!!

The real question is, would you trade T-Mac for Manu. LMAO... T-Mac is better scorer, defender, passer, EVERYTHING over Manu. Manu is OVERRATED. If I was the Spurs, hahahahahah I would definitely get T-Mac if they wanted Manu, it would be like Getting Pau for Kwame, obviously not to that extreme. But T-Mac is far the superior to Manu, its a joke to compare them.

Hey thehumanhighlightreel...how many titles has TMac won now? How many teams has he been sent off to? Manu is FAR from overrated...what happened to the spurs last year when he started to wear down at the end of the playoffs? They got their butts handed to them by the Lakers. Manu is a GREAT player and is a team guy. He comes in as the 6th man in most games even though he would probably be a 25+ point guy for most teams. If anyone is overrated, its TMac, sure he's exciting but he's a me-first player that has yet to do ANYTHING in the playoffs.

I hope SPURS keep Manu - he wants to retire here and he is an awesome player. Just when Pop gets
a "solid" team, he trades them off. PLEASE POP-
keep the team you have and let him retire here
like he wants to do...

None of these people know anything about basketball....tmac for manu??? Never in a million years, Houston would have to give up way more than that bag of bones for Manu. Tmac will be lucky to break a double double for 30 percent of the games he DOES play next season if any at all...get out of here with that weak ass garbage yo...
