Remember when Tracy McGrady was one of the best players in the NBA? We know, it's been a while!
But the superstar-turned-benchwarmer once again found his name in the headlines when he made a little splash with some comments he made!
T-Mac was recently spotted at the airport, and reporters were dying to know who he thought was the toughest player he ever had to guard, and he said Kobe Bryant!
Now normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but once upon a time, Tracy also had to guard another fairly famous shooting guard by the name of Michael Jordan. Ever heard of him?
Well not only does T-Mac think Kobe is better, he says it's not even close:
"It's Kobe. All day… Ain't nobody even close!"
That's a bold statement!!
In all fairness, T-Mac was actually returning the favor considering Kobe recently said Tracy was the toughest player he ever played against, which seems even MORE crazy when you consider he's matched up against the likes of Allen Iverson, LeBron James, and even Michael Jordan early in his career!
There's no question that Kobe will go down as one of the all time greats, and is currently the undisputed King of El Lay, but is he really better than Air Jordan???
We're not so sure about that!!
