“It does go by fast,” Van Gundy said, speaking of McGrady’s coming and going from the basketball’s biggest stage. “You look back on it, McGrady leaves, and it’s like, ‘Did Vince Carter really get traded for Alonzo Mourning with a bad kidney?’ You’re sitting there saying, really? You look at Toronto and it’s a great, great basketball town. ... They could have had some championship teams up there if they’d stayed together.” Toronto Star

Leaving open the door to play overseas, seven-time All-Star Tracy McGrady retired from the NBA on Monday. "It's been 16 years playing the game I love. I've had a great run but it's time for it to come to an end," McGrady said on ESPN's "First Take." ESPN.com

At least one NBA star is willing to say it -- Kobe Bryant is a much tougher opponent than his airness, Michael Jordan was ... at least according to Tracy McGrady. (Pause for lightning bolts) McGrady was responding to Kobe's recent comment that T-Mac was the hardest player he ever had to guard -- so, we expected him to throw a little praise back at Kobe. But watch his comments at LAX -- McGrady wasn't just being nice ... and actually went out of his way to say it's "not even close" who his toughest assignment was on the court. Remember, McGrady checked Jordan during MJ's final title run in Chicago ... when he was still making players look foolish. TMZ.com

I remember being in a scrum with Trady McGrady at the NBA Finals talking about his experiences in China and him telling us he found some restaurant in every city in the league that served “American” food and that he seldom went out so there are those who don’t assimilate at all. But I also remember talking to Matt Bonner on several occasions where he explained how much fun he had, and how much history he soaked up, during his time in Italy so there are extremes and it really depends on the willingness of the person to grow as men.
