        Tracy McGrady's is not a hall of famer. He should not have been inducted into the hall of fame. He had some great seasons. He did notting in the playoffs. Had to of injuries .

            I Love T-Mac. From his showing at the 1996 ABCD camp to being drafted as a HS player to being a 2 time scoring champion to scoring 13 points in 35 seconds as a Rocket to his induction into the HoF. I am so proud of him.

              does a player with offensive super talent alone, deserve the Hall of Fame ? I don't believe so. He never showed he could win, and if you tell me he didn't have the help Lebron took the scrub Cavaliers to the Finals when he was a kid, Tmac never made it out of the first round ...so if he's that far behind young Lebron then he's clearly not HoF, and he did have Yao Ming for a time anyways.

                0:57 Sickest head-fake I've ever seen (MJ/Hakeem were before my time). I remember watching TMac live on TNT/ESPN, & all the commentators in the know praised TMac's head & shoulder fakes. Kerr, Hubie, Doug Collins, JVG, etc

                  T-Mac vs Kobe one on one matchups were just crazy, the best offensive and defensive battle I have ever seen 80s 90 and last 19 years

                              Lol, ok where are the maverick fans? You guys should be protesting this, because tmac made a highlight reel for the ages every single game he played against Dallas. Ijs....its okay to protest against this videos. Lol

                                    Iverson's team made it to the finals with his bum team. Not hating on Tmac but he is another of many that shouldn't be in the HOF...

                                      T-Mac was my generation's Kevin Durant. Guy was unguardable and a walking bucket.

                                              A lot of people may have had a better career then T Mac, but as a player in a prime, he can score on anyone of all time.

                                                Why Tracy McGrady is in the HOF? Because winning doesn't matter.

                                                  That 13 points in 35 seconds, is the most impressive feat in an NBA game ever and it will be hard to top... The most ridiculous part of that is, that Spurs didn't really fail at the end either. They hit their free throws and there were no stupid turn overs or no obvious missed foul calls... It was just TMac scoring 13 on 4 shots in a ridiculously short time... It is perfection.

For every sportsman and specially basketball players, a back injury is a bad thing. The guy was tremendous. Not a great defender overall for lack of motivation. But when he was on, he was pretty good on defense with his lenght. Offensively, he was unbelievable. He was taylor made for the modern NBA with his pull up three point shot. Great ballhandler. Deadly driver and finisher with all his dunks and finger rolls. And he was unselfish also. Great passer. He had everything. It ´s just that like Grant Hill, injuries got the better of him.

                                                                                        T-Mac in the HOF is an amazing accomplishment and a true testament to how skilled he was. T-Mac is one of my all time favorite players during that era of basketball so naturally my opinion on him being in the HOF is that it is well deserved. That's my outlook on this topic whether or not you agree or disagree is your perspective. T-Mac was an incredibly talented and skilled player on the offensive end of the game and in his prime from 2000-2007 averaged over 26 points a game and nearly 30 in the playoffs during that span as well. One of the youngest players to win back to back scoring titles and was an MVP candidate in 2004. Pretty impressive for a guy that came straight out of high school. I know what some of you will say... his FG percentage wasn't that good, he wasn't a great defender, he never took his teams past the first round of the playoffs, etc. One could argue that he never had a supporting cast while in Orlando and Houston other than an injured Grant Hill and Yao Ming. Sure maybe he should have stayed with Toronto and things might have been better. He himself admitted that he should have stayed in Toronto. Some would argue that he was always injured and didn't take care of his body properly. I feel he never reached his true potential and could have been more successful during his 16 seasons. Unfortunately we will never know what "could have been" but during T-Mac's prime years he was arguably a top 20 player in the league out of 450+ players. Say what you want about T-Mac, you're entitled to your own opinions. Respect the fact that he was able to make a living doing what he loved and provided entertainment and inspiration for people all over the world.
