I was going through some old boxes last night and I found my T-mac (Tracy McGrady) wrist band he gave me during a game against the Jazz.
I had totally forgotten I had it. I was in the 2000 season with his 1st year with the Magic. My buddy had courtside seats and invited me and another friend. I was in high school and used to talking trash so me and my buddies were chirping at him all game. He smiled and laughed a few times but never looked at us.
During halftime after the teams were back out of the locker room and warming up, I'm talking to my buddy when all of a sudden he goes, "Whoa, look who's coming." I turn just in time to see T-Mac making a line right over to us and he's looking at me. He leans over about a foot from my face and goes, "I see you're wearing Bryon Russell's jersey tonight. He sucks! I'm gonna cook him this half." He winked at us and walked away. Several times after he scored that half he would turn and look at us and wink.
After the game he ran straight over to me and gave me his wrist band. I've always loved McGrady ever since.
