Tracy McGrady: Exploring the Legacy of A Fallen Star

November 13th, 2009 by Courtzide Seatz Leave a reply »

There was a time when Tracy McGrady was one of the most relevant players on the face of the planet. He was a bona fide star in the early part of this decade, during a period when the NBA was desperately seeking an identity.


Critics were claiming that the demise of the league was imminent, and television ratings were plummeting faster than George W. Bush’s popularity. Fans were quickly becoming disenfranchised with the style of play that dominated the league, epitomized by teams such as the San Antonio Spurs who appeared in the two lowest rated NBA Finals in league history.


It was during this time that McGrady stood apart as one of the few players who could restore a suffering league back to respectability, and usher in a new era of excitement and globalization.
