    Tracy McGrady - Not Even Close Kobe was toughest to guard

    one NBA star is willing to say it — Kobe Bryant is a much tougher opponent than his airness, Michael Jordan was … at least according to Tracy McGrady. (Pause for lightning bolts) McGrady was responding to Kobe’s recent comment that T-Mac was the hardest player he ever had to guard — so, we expected him to throw a little praise back at Kobe.

    But watch his comments at LAX — McGrady wasn’t just being nice … and actually went out of his way to say it’s “not even close” who his toughest assignment was on the court.

    Remember, McGrady checked Jordan during MJ’s final title run in Chicago … when he was still making players look foolish.

    So, Kobe over MJ? Tracy said it … not us.

    Lol the title could be better.

    And T-Mac never guarded MJ in his prime or LeBron so of course for him, out of the players he's ever been asked to guard Kobe was the toughest one.

    One should also remember that McGrady wasn't really a good defender by any means.

    Plus it could just be his way of saying thank you to Kobe for Kobe saying that T-Mac was the hardest to guard for him.

    Kiirrrbbyy Briiaannn!!!

    In T-Mac's prime there wasn't a ton of competition at the 2/3. Wade? Ray Ray? That's about it. What would the other answer be besides Kobe?

    He did catch Jordan at the end of his career. Jordan was such the lesser player at that time that T-Mac actually outplayed MJ in their head-to-head matchups.

    And once again, if you think Kobe is better than Jordan you're delusional.

    This hits the nail on the head. Just a little man crush going back and forth between the 2. Lakers fans constantly finding the need to talk up Kobe on this forum.

    Tmac was a great defender at one point

    Offensively Kobe is just as good, but who in their right mind would say Kobe is better than Jordan
