    "Tracy McGrady is playing like Michael Jordan, Jerry West, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem all wrapped into one.......[I can say] with a straight face that this guy has a chance to be the greatest player of all time"-Bill Walton on McGrady when he was with the Magic

    "Much of the game was so easy [for him]...He should be a Hall of Fame player. His talent was other-worldly. He was given a great leg up in the race against other players. He’s as close as I’ve ever seen to someone with a perfect body and a good mind.”-Jeff Van Gundy, McGrady's coach in Houston

    "What scares me is that Tracy's probable for about 40 (points).
    Questionable for 50. Probable for 40."
    —Jeff Bzdelik

    Conclusion: I am sure you all know what my opinion of T-Mac is (he's my favorite player ever LOL), but even if I'm being unbiased I think he has a strong case to be a hall of famer. His career did not go as some would have hoped, due to injuries and perhaps a below average work ethic, but his peak is one of the greatest seasons ever for a perimeter player. That, coupled with his excellent prime, for me, should be enough to push him into the HOF (not first ballot, but eventually). I realize he did not have playoff success, but you cannot really blame him for the majority of those years if you look at how well he did and how awful his teammates were (in Orlando). In Houston, he and Yao were rarely healthy together, which is a damn shame. Anyways, your thoughts?

    Injuries robbed him of what would've been a great career.. There are some players in the HOF that aren't half as good as T-Mac was..

    He'll get in with his current numbers but it will take a while BUT if the NBA does come back and he can generate 2 -3 more "SOLID" seasons and we all know the definition of a solid season he'll get in faster.......one of my favorite players all time......underrated defender as well. Excellent mid range shooter incredible on the drive and finish.
