NBA legend Tracy McGrady advises LeBron James and Stephen Curry in the OBL-NBA tournament while discussing their iconic career.

For basketball fans in the UK, US, and indeed around the world, Tracy McGrady doesn't need to be introduced.

McGrady, known as the T-Mac in the NBA Circle, is as easy to rim through defense as it can be out of balance at crunch time and hit a fiercely contested three-point. It was an explosive player who could drive. His fellowHall of FamePaul Pierce described McGrady as one of the most difficult players the Boston Celtics icon had to protect. This is certainly a high rating.

As explained, McGrady is moving forward in his post-basketball life in the Ones Basketball League, just as he was on the court with the Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, the Houston Rockets and more. Analysts across the pond often stated that his size, playmaking, and shooting were that thethree-point shootwas probably the best sport in the modern era.

T-Mac has no dispute that he was a pre-era modern star.

"This is another game," McGrady toldMirrorSportexclusively. "Basketball games are constantly evolving over the years. But I wish I had been playing in this era. Absolutely. I think I've been playing for over 15 years. There are so many in today's games. There is a gap and a barrage of three pointers. The rules have made the game softer. There are fewer consecutive games. All-star breaks are longer. For example, "

Mac. Grady paused, like a vicious stride stop to kick out the defender, in order not to offend anyone. He said with a smile, "Listen to them in today's game. Implementing a lot of things really helps these guys extend their NBA career. I say that. ”

Career statistics are 19.6 points, 5.6 It's easy to imagine that when you've achieved seven All-Star appearances and two All-NBA Firsts per game with rebounds and 4.4 assists, you'll be disappointed that you were born too early. Team selection. When asked if his game would be translated today, T-Mac was characteristically pointed out.

"Andrew, I think it's pretty good," McGrady declared shrugging. "Looking back, some of the scores are 85 to 88 and players can have 40 of them. In today's game, you get 130 points and shoot 30 to 40 threes every night. Come to the guy. I think it will work. "

In fact, Tracy McGrady (T-Mac himself) is undoubtedly saying "it works" in today's NBA, with seven All-Star / two-time NBA scoring champions unhappy. As in the 2000s, today's fans are amazed and foretold, as his 6-foot-8-inch frame put together a border threat that could overtake the sport's best defenders at first glance. It is no exaggeration to say that it is frankly idolized.

There are many stages in McGrady's storybook career at the NBA. The opening chapter in Toronto with his cousin Vince Carter set the stage, which not only made McGrady emerge as one of the NBA's major stars, but also his potential and what he belonged to best. It was his time in Orlando to realize the fact that he staged with Grant Hill, who McGrady called "one of the best people to accomplish it."

"Magic signed this kid who wasn't a Toronto starter and handed him a bag with Grant Hill," McGrady added. "I had to grow really fast. I think the season was really verified and confirmed to me, you know, I was able to do this.

"I was able to be one of the best players in the NBA. I cut off my butt to get there, but I reached that level."

His spell at Orlando Magic saw McGrady probably rise to the peak of his power. While in Florida, T-Mac led the NBA's score twice. This includes his career's highest 32.1 points per game. He himself admitted that part of his career was at its best.

"Man, Orlando T-Mac was a bad boy," McGrady said with a laugh, shining his eyes, reliveing ​​his memories of the past. "I had the spirit of Rocket T-Mac in that version, because I was a cerebral basketball player in Houston with a diminished athletic ability.

" I'm about the game I was more knowledgeable, but in Houston I used my athletic ability because I could go where I needed it. ”

McGrady is right when looking back on his career. He was the top scorer twice in the NBA, but at the moment of his play I had to ask. Victory from the jaw of defeat over the dynasty San Antonio Spurs.

"Looking back at those moments, we have to acknowledge the work we put into the off-season," McGrady recalled how the Spurs hit each free throw. Later, the incredible comeback is even more memorable. "That moment was the reason why we worked tirelessly, innumerable times, tons of shots, and in the best possible shape.

"Opportunities finally appeared and I was ready to take advantage of that moment."

McGrady's thinking And style threatened the NBA defenders and made them one of the most difficult players to face in a one-on-one situation. Anyway, T-Mac claims he didn't consider his strengths when he formed the Ones Basketball League.

Instead, the 43-year-old kid was inspired by the simple fact that someone gave him a chance. That is the purpose of OBL. It's a typical T-Mac: bet on yourself and your skills to find great success.

"I would like to provide someone who really doesn't know about the platform to show off their talents. Some of these players are told they aren't enough and the doors are closed. I know there are people, "McGrady proudly said.

"This is a platform that doesn't require a coach. You don't have to teach anyone what they can and can't do. They go out and do it themselves, sit down, look and get excited. Prove to the world that you have a great skill set worth doing-and these guys have already proved right to my theory. "

McGrady He pointed out elite fitness, mental resilience, and shooting ability as important attributes needed to succeed in OBL. He wants it to be a women's league before adopting a global format that includes London and England.

The Rockets icon laughed when he and OBL pointed to an instigated enthusiasm on British social media after following many journalists and content creators. And his vision is clear. McGrady confidently states:

Not surprisingly, this raised the question of who believes McGrady will be at the top of the OBL special tournament across the NBA league. He talked interestingly about boxing-like height classes and UFC weight classes, leveling the stadium (or court) to some extent. T-Mac has listed some of the names that seem to excel in the collaboration between the NBA and OBL.

"If you're talking about 6 feet 3 inches or less, Kylie [Irving] and Stephen [Curry] will face each other in the championship game," McGrady considers a moment later. did. His option. "If you're looking at 6 feet 6 inches or more, LeBron [James], Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George. Listen. There are talented one-on-one skills in the game. Now it's exciting. It's time. ”

It's certainly fascinating to follow the NBA in the era. Time. Statistics and championship rings educate many opinions, good or bad. Since the 1997 NBA Draft, when the Raptors graduated from high school and was drafted to 9th overall, McGrady was named the fastest-growing player in 2001 and won one of three All-NBA teams seven times. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017, consolidating his position in basketball history and immortalizing his legacy.

T-Mac has never claimed an elusive NBA title through his illustrious career, but has received a unique type of appreciation that players rarely receive, and is probably more successful. The star is longing for it. He has become a cult hero thanks to the joy he has shown to fans around the world thanks to his charming and carefree style-and the wise older McGrady has the brightest love and gratitude he has received in his life than any championship ring. I admit that it is shining.

"Everyone wants to win the right to the championship. Whether it's management or the right part, it requires a lot of moving parts, due to lack of trial. It wasn't a thing, but it happens, "McGrady concludes. "My dream as a kid was to play in the NBA. I wanted to be an NBA player.

" People thanked me for what I brought to the basketball game and It shows that love and support. It's a fulfillment for me in itself. I'm always grateful. "

At the OBL Final, the winner (the ruler of the court) is July 15th. I'll bring back $ 250,000 from Las Vegas on the 17th. For more information,here
