CBS LEGENDS: TRACY McGRADY

Tracy McGrady is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining and dynamic players ever to grace a basketball court.

The No.9 pick by the Toronto Raptors in the 1997 NBA Draft (which featured Tim Duncan at No.1 and Chauncey Billups at No.3, the only other players from that class to reach All-Star status), McGrady became a seven-time All-Star selection during a 16-year career with the Raptors, Magic, Rockets, Knicks, Pistons, Hawks and Spurs.

The Florida product was the NBA scoring champion in the 2003 and ’04 seasons while with Orlando, and holds the Magic’s franchise record for most points in a game (62, v Wizards in 2004) and a playoff game (46, v Pistons in 2003).

And who will ever forget his iconic 13 point in just 35 seconds to steal one of the great Houdini victories for the Houston Rockets against Duncan’s Spurs?

After just six seasons in the NBA, he was named at #75 in SLAM magazine’s Top 75 Players of All-Time.

T-Mac came in at #22 in the NBA’s 2015 list of the greatest dunkers of all time – and it’s not hard to see why when you take in this bombastic highlights package.
