McGrady must prove himself to Bulls

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

If Tracy McGrady truly wants to join the Bulls, he has a lot of convincing to do when he works out at the Berto Center on Monday.

Besides showing that he's physically healthy enough to be a productive NBA player again after microfracture surgery a year and a half ago, McGrady must convince the Bulls' brass that he is mentally willing to accept a lesser role after being a star for most of his career.

With a young roster of developing players and a rookie head coach, the last thing the Bulls want is a prima donna veteran making waves. Even though signing McGrady would be a low risk financially, a source said the Bulls will only do it if they are confident it won't create a problem.

Through his many posting on Twitter on the subject, McGrady, 31, has indicated he is willing to accept a lesser role. Now he just has to convince the Bulls.
