DIME SMACK: T-Mac does good

Dime #2 cover boy T-Mac did the right thing. The 13-year-old boy who was shot by that deranged sniper in suburban D.C. mentioned to his doctors that he was a huge McGrady fan. Tracy responded by sending the kid a videotaped get-well message and an autographed jersey. Good looks on that and T-Mac's definitely the man, but wouldn't you expect a boy from Washington to idolize a certain other Eastern Conference shooting guard? Seems like Shard's wild roller-coaster ride that he calls his left shoulder will not need surgery after all. It just has a tendency to pop out of its socket from time to time. He should be ready to ball by Monday. Good thing, too. Last time we checked, $70 million is a lot of money to throw away. Just ask the New York . Up in Minnesota, Wally World is expected to be out for at least two weeks after dislocating his left pinkie toe after tangling with on Tuesday. Wally is reportedly not that upset because he plans to use the time away from the court to brush his hair and look in the mirror a lot. ... Speaking of Mr. Kukoc, MJ's favorite European punching bag apparently doesn't think the young foreign ballers respect trailblazers like himself. Says Toni: "It would be nice if guys would say, 'If not for you and a couple of other guys, there is no way we would be treated as we are now.'" You know what else would be nice? Three championship rings, millions of dollars, and a country where you're treated like a deity. Count your blessings, Anthony. Congratulations ! You're the latest winner of Who Wants to Get Cut by an NBA Team? The Blazers cut the former lottery pick loose after they realized that on a team with so many talented players, Owens would somehow see negative playing time this season. Wang ZhiZhi just got Spreewelled by China. The Chinese Basketball Association has had enough with the 7-foot-1 center/forward who is currently balling somewhere between L.A. and Dallas. They kicked Wang, who spent the summer training in Cali instead of balling for China, off the team (which he obviously has no interest in playing for) and told him to come back only if he "admits his wrongdoing." Other than maybe throwing up a couple bricks in Venice Beach, we see no real "wrongdoing" in this situation. As if his rep wasn't tarnished enough, Spree reportedly almost got into a fight with P. Diddy at the New York club Suede. A mix-up over seating almost led to some fisticuffs between their respective posses. If there are two millionaires in this world who need to stay out of trouble, it's these two. To make matters worse the altercation was caught on tape by an MTV camera crew following Poofy on his club crawl. A few quick notes on the preseason games. ... Although Lord Byron was reportedly upset with his conditioning, led the with 18 in just 27 minutes in their victory over Cleveland. D-Miles led the Cavs with 19 in what is sure to be the first of a long long line of losses. ... continued to impress in Memphis with 13 points and 16 boards in the Grizz's win over the . Fellow ROY candidate dropped 15 in the losing effort. ... Isaiah Thomas's new-fangled "quick motion" offense had its first victory as Indiana took it to New Orleans. B-Mill was impressive for the Pace Show with 21 and 11. , who has returned from his Spring excursion to the Gates of Hell, led N'Awlins with 17. Jay-Z's got big things in store for the Fall. Jigga is set to drop The Blueprint 2: The Gift and the Curse on November 5. This massive 2-disc set, the first ever by a Def Jam artist, will feature living legends Dre and Rakim as well as The Neptunes and new Roc-A-Fella signee M.O.P.. The new single has Beyonce lusciously crooning the hook and will be played at every club in NYC for the next two months straight. He will not lose. Ever. We're out like Shard's surgeon.
