Must Be the Star

From the annals of silly sports punditry, I just heard Doug Collins explain that the Rockets are doing better because the team added "high-energy players" who've "revitalized Tracy McGrady." T-Mac's clearly an excellent player, but if you look at the numbers there's just no denying that he's performing below the peak he established during his first three seasons in Orlando. Houston didn't add players who revitalized McGrady; they've got a bunch of role players who are playing well so the team's winning more games than it did at the beginning of the season. McGrady, however, is playing just the same.
