Tracy McGrady was on the playoff roster of the San Antonio Spurs as they made their run to the NBA Finals but understandably he wasn’t able to contribute all that much.
McGrady’s skill set has diminished far below the electric level it once reached and he’s no longer capable of registering meaningful minutes against the game’s best players.
But McGrady can still play and...
