Tracy McGrady Says He Wouldn’t Have Clashed With Shaq Like Kobe Did

by September 05, 2013

Recently retired Tracy McGrady continues to make his media rounds. When asked about how he stacked up against Kobe Bryant during his prime, T-Mac says he fared quite well. McGrady also added that had he gotten a chance to play alongside Shaquille O’Neal, their relationship would have been a lot better. Per Fox Sports (via Larry Brown Sports): “Numbers don’t lie. I was in the conversation of being one of the best in the league,’ McGrady said on Wednesday. ‘Whether I was better than Kobe, or he was better than me … I was in the conversation and it didn’t matter at the time. I was playing at a high level and was very confident when I was on the court.’ […] ‘We would have had a great run,’ he said when asked about Shaq. ‘I don’t know how many (championships we would’ve won) but, I know it would have never ended like it did with he and Kobe. I have a great relationship with Shaq. We would have never clashed heads like that. Two Alpha dogs going at there will always be (something going on).'”
