Default Re: Is Tracy McGrady a Hall of Famer at this point?

As far as Mitch Richmond goes, he got out of the first round, but he also had better teammates(when healthy anyway). When with Golden State, the question was, would Chris Mullin stay healthy? He was injury prone for much of his career. In 1988-89, Mullin played in all 82 games, the Warriors get in as the 7th seed and swept the #2 Jazz. In 1989-90, Mullin stayed healthy(78 games), but Winston Garland played in only 51. They went 37-45 and missed the playoffs. In 1990-91, Mullin played in all 82 games, and the Warrios upset the #2 Spurs. Mullin was healthy for the most part when Mitch Richmond was there.


The Kings were a horrible team, and Richmond only made the playoffs once with them, and that was as an 8th seed with a 39-43 record.


The Wizards were even worse, and never won more than 29 games with Richmond there. His stats were very similar to T-mac, only with a bit less rebounds and assists. Richmond was a much better shooter from the outside, but the point is some guys are unfortunately, on teams that are horrible, have injury prone players, or both. Both men deserve to be in.

so, before retirement, T-Mac will find a team to latch onto -- like pete -- et out of the first...and then, he'll be HOFG material. Makes sense.

Yep, that's probably what will happen. I just think that T-Mac can't carry a team, even a good team, to the second round. He's obviously a fantastically talented scorer, and if that's enough for the HoF, fine.

He is famous as hell and won't be forgotten so why not? 13 in 35 makes him a legend. I think he'll get in.
