"It feels good to get in the second round", he said.

In 2003, the Nets were on their way to a second consecutive NBA Finals appearance, but on this night they had no answer for McGrady. In most National Basketball Association games, that would've been the end of things, but McGrady took just 5 seconds to make another 3-pointer, then - after a Spurs timeout - forced Brown into a turnover and followed it up by draining his fourth and final 3-pointer of the sequence with 1.7 seconds left.

"I'm grateful for Title IX and the opportunities that it's given to women like me, who dreamed of a future where we could do the same job as a man, where playing a game could lead to a 40-year career", she said.

Tracy McGrady spun a powerful mixture of joy, pride and spitefulness during his Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement speech Friday night, lighting up a former coach who didn't believe in him, thanking a number of figures who did, and explaining he needed time to accept he belonged among the sport's legends.

What's indisputable is McGrady's vast individual ability. At 6-foot-8 with long arms, ridiculous athleticism and smooth movements, there was virtually nothing McGrady couldn't do when it came to scoring.

From the moment Tracy McGrady first appeared on The Jump, ESPN's Rachel Nichols has always introduced the seven-time All-Star as "Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady".

There have been 41 players in the history of the league that have made at least seven all-NBA or ABA teams. I apologize. So if I didn't break his nose, he wouldn't be in the Hall of Fame.

Still, even in that rarified air, that lack of postseason success stands out. Sure, plenty of guys among those 41 haven't won a championship. (The one who notably hasn't, Paul, still at least has made it out of the first round on four occasions). "It's way too easy to focus on what you don't have and what you didn't accomplish". When he left the Toronto Raptors in 2000 to join the Magic, he was expecting to play alongside Grant Hill - who, at the time, was among the league's top five or 10 players. McGrady hit four 3-pointers, including one four-point play and a game-winning triple with a second left in the game to cap off an awesome win.

To me, it's an inspired hire, Jen's done pretty much everything - beat grunt, boss, newshound, ran communications for the Canadian High Commission in London (the real one, not the one down the 401) - and will handle this with aplomb.

McGrady had earlier told reporters his celebration was being tempered by the impact of Hurricane Harvey on his family and neighbors in Texas. But despite being nearly a foot shorter, McGrady lept over and threw down one of the biggest dunks of the 2004-05 season over the Dallas Mavericks center.
