When I mean "primary ball handler", I'm not talking in the sense of like a point guard. As you mentioned, he was the one making the only person making the plays on his teams which in terms means that most of the plays that were drawn up were for him.

BUT my problem with McGrady has been his play off the ball. During his prime, he was only able to make plays when he had the ball in his hand. Rarely did I see him make plays off the ball. Even with the talent he had to play with, it was still possible for him to make plays off the ball.

If you're speaking of in ORL.. it was Doc's give it to him and move out of the way offense that never called for that..except when they had a short stint with Darrell Armstrong

In HOU they had 3 plays.. PnR, pass it into Yao and drive and kick

I would like to see how he plays off the ball as well in a system where there are some pretty good players that can knock down shots because as it was, there were always guys who either couldn't knock down shots or couldn't really make plays for themselves or others sadly.

Would be indeed interesting, but too bad his prime is gone, or even his best year may be gone.

This would be interesting

@KDTrey5 Hey @ShaneBattier, just wanted to see how you were doing and what size jersey you wear and also do u still want no.31?

@ShaneBattier @KDTrey5 yes #31 is preferable and it's true that I enjoy OKC steakhouses. And @nickcollison4 is my boy. Hmmmm......big selling points.

That would be an interesting move and would also give them two very good defenders in Battier and Thabo.

I don't think battier would do much for that team. It wouldn't be a bad addition, but I think they'd be better off spending their money else where

In the end, OKC doesn't need to spend money, anywhere. Battier would definitely be a great pickup, but he isn't the answer.

For as "great" as a coach Scott Brooks is made out to be, that offense is pretty dinky. I imagine the only thing we will see in OKC that makes a difference this year is...

- Brooks adding a few wrinkles into their offensive game plan
- Brooks utilizing Harden more often and effectively
- Westbrook continuing to develop his decision making.

Without those three things, OKC faces a similar fate.
