Is Tracy Mcgrady the Greatest Shooting Guard Ever?



Tracy Mcgrady (T-Mac) is one of the greatest ring less players ever and a top tier Shooting Guard of all time.

Tracy Mcgrady was drafted ninth overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 1997 draft coming straight out of high school to begin his career. He paired with his cousin Vince Carter for two NBA seasons with the Toronto Raptors. He let the Raptors for the Orlando Magic where he entered one of his primes by becoming one of the league most prolific scorers and a candidate for the MVP and over his long 15 season career  he was included in the All NBA team, Nba most improved player and Mr. Basketball USA. And was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017

During his time with the Houston Rockets Tracy Mcgardy became arguably one of the greatest players at the time averaging 22.7 points a game and had one of the best highlights in NBA history on December 9th 2004 where Tracy dropped 13 points in 33 seconds against the Spurs which was a historical performance still talked about today. Tracy Mcgrady is often described as the hardest player to guard from players like Paul Pierce and even Kobe Bean Bryant. 


Although often criticized for never making it past the first round of the playoffs and never winning a ring during his 15 season career, Tracy Mcgrady is arguably one of the greatest shooting guards of all time because of his basketball IQ length, play making, and shooting abilities that would make him extremely effective in modern era of the NBA was number 55 in the Nba top 75. Arguably in my opinion Tracy Mcgrady is a better overall shooting guard than players such as Dwayne Wade, George Gavin, Jerry West,  Clyde Drexler and honestly Micheal Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
