T-Mac started his NBA career in 1997 with the Toronto Raptors when he was drafted out of high school. He went on to play for the Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, Atlanta Hawks, San Antonio Spurs and the Qingdao Eagles in China during the most recent NBA lockout. McGrady was an All-Star seven times and won the scoring title two years in a row, in 2002-03 and 2003-04.
Despite his immaculate NBA career as one of the most prolific scorers of all time, McGrady has never been on a championship team. The only time he appeared beyond the second round of the playoffs was as a benchwarmer with this year’s Spurs, falling to the Miami heat in seven games in the NBA Finals.
The next step for T-Mac is determining whether or not he belongs in the Hall of Fame. McGrady’s 2002-03 season with the Magic is measured by a player efficiency calculator as the 16th-best season in NBA history. He scored 40 or more points 10 times that season, but failed to get the Magic through to the second round of the playoffs.
Throughout his NBA career, T-Mac averaged 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. His tenure in the NBA may be over, but he has said that playing in China is still a possibility.
