Tracy McGrady to Headline 2017 Basketball Hall of Fame


Tracy McGrady is headed to the Hall of Fame. The two-time scoring champion is set to headline the 2017 Class which also features coaching legend Bill Self and Rebecca Lobo. One of the most dominant forces in NBA history, T-Mac had the ability to take over games similar to the way Mike, Kobe, AI, LeBron and KD do/did. Through 15 seasons in the league, McGrady was selected to seven All-NBA and All-Star teams. Even with the injuries that led to down years statistically, the explosive forward finished his career with averages of 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.

His best season came in 2002-03, in which he averaged a league-leading 32.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game for the Orlando Magic. McGrady followed that season up with another scoring title, averaging 28 points, 6 rebounds and just under 6 assists per game.

Two-time NBA scoring champion Tracy McGrady, Kansas coach Bill Self, former Chicago Bulls executive Jerry Krause and former UConn star Rebecca Lobo are part of this year’s Basketball Hall of Fame class.

The Hall of Fame announced the 11-person class Saturday.

McGrady – who went straight to the NBA from high school – was a seven-time All-Star who played 15 years in the league. He had his best years with the Orlando Magic and Houston Rockets before injuries limited his effectiveness.

He led the league in scoring while playing for the Magic in both the 2002-03 and `03-04 seasons. At 37, McGrady is the youngest in this year’s class.
