Tracy McGrady is retiring from the NBA, and he went to twitter to thank his fans from the three cities that were the biggest parts of his career — Toronto, Orlando and Houston — with specially made posters.
He also thanked the person behind the posters.
Well done, Tracy. That was classy.
If there one game that defined Tracy McGrady the unstoppable scoring machine, it was this one.
Most of the time down 12 with under a minute the losing team folds, the winning team dribbles it out and we all go home. But McGrady didn’t let up and hit four three pointers (one that was a four-point play) and did it with hands in his face, with the Spurs knowing he was going to get the rock. Didn’t matter.
Then there was the steal and the game winner, just vintage.
McGrady has announced he is retiring from the NBA.
We broke down the case for Tracy McGrady making the Hall of Fame, and we believe he gets in, although it may take him a couple of tries.
McGrady joined CSN Houston and argued that his numbers should help him qualify, but overall he seems content with the career that he had, and is staying humble about his chances.
“I think my numbers match up with some of the guys that are in the Hall of Fame,” McGrady said. “Whether or not I get in or not, it really doesn’t matter to me. I’m a guy from Auburndale, Florida (with) a population of 10,000 people, grew up in a pretty bad neighborhood, so to me, I’m Hall of Fame just by making it through my career. That’s Hall of Fame to me.”
