McGRADY GIVEN HALL OF FAME NOD

One of the greatest talents to ever play the game finally got some recognition today, as it was announced that Tracy McGrady had made the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

McGrady was a stud for the Houston Rockets, but injuries plagued his career. McGrady was largely seen as one of the most talented players in the NBA, and when healthy was held in the same regard as Kobe Bryant.

McGrady posted career averages of nearly 20 points per game, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists.

McGrady was a 7 times All-Star and All-NBA selection, and was best known for his epic performance against the Spurs with less than a minute to go.

McGrady’s career is regarded as one of the biggest “what-ifs” in league history, as his injury history left him out of the postseason in most of his seasons.
