That series broke my heart, and I was ready to give up as a fan... so I have no idea how T-Mac took it after being the main focal point and outplaying the other team's superstar by a good margin. I am probably even mentally weaker than he is, and I doubt I would have wanted to pick up a basketball in the offseason after that.
2004-05 should have been the start of something great with T-Mac and Yao.
