NBA legend Tracy McGrady was forced to defend his name on Sunday night after both Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith and Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier decided to give their opinions on who would win in a McGrady-Kevin Durant matchup.

While Tracy McGrady let Smith slide, Evan Fournier wasn’t so lucky. When the French guard agreed with Smith, T-Mac mercilessly clapped back:
“Say bruh, break one of my records in that uniform then you can comment!!”
The Hall of Famer was clearly not pleased that a Magic player had the nerve to disrespect his legacy while donning an Orlando jersey.
Tracy McGrady famously played four excellent seasons for the Magic from 2000-2004. He had his best numbers with the team, averaging 28.1 points, seven rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.5 steals, and one block a game, filling up the box score on a nightly basis.
While he never won a championship, McGrady is known as one of the best players of his era. Perhaps his best-known accomplishment is scoring 13 points in 35 seconds, capped by a game-winning, buzzer-beating three-pointer.
Even though Durant would certainly give him a run for his money in a game of one on one, Tracy McGrady was no slouch. He was a prolific scorer who had what seemed like hundreds of ways to score the ball. Whether he was behind the three-point line, fading away on the baseline, or posterizing some poor center, McGrady will always hold a place in NBA fans’ hearts.
