NBA Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady is a seven-time NBA All-Star (2001-07), a two time NBA scoring champion (2003,2004) and was also selected as the Most Improved Player (in 2001).

McGrady joined the Rockets and Yao Ming in 2004 and turned the team into a strong contender for the title. He led the team to a 22 game win streak in the 2007-08 season but could not get past the first round (playoff), despite giving his best.

During his time with the Rockets, he played 303 games and averaged 22.7 points, 5.6 assists, 5.5 rebounds per game.

McGrady performed well in big games and is often considered as one of the greatest basketball players of all-time. Jeff Van Gundy (his coach at the Houston Rockets) said:

"He's a Hall of Fame player, a great, great player. Unfortunately injuries robbed him of that greatness prematurely, when you have injuries and take prime years off the career, it's hard to rectify what you could have done with those years."
