There was once a time when Tracy McGrady, 32, was one of the best in the league. Today, many NBA fans may not even know what team he plays for (Atlanta Hawks). T-Mac, who has battled injuries and personal problems for much of his career, has slipped mightily over the past few years, but the once prolific scorer still considers himself a hall of famer.

"I look back on it and still consider myself a 20-point average person," McGrady said. "If we're going by the numbers, I think they're Hall of Fame numbers. You total two scoring titles up along with my points, my playoff average (28.5 in 38 games), so yeah I think I have the credentials."
But durability is also a test of greatness. Kobe has been doing what he's doing for over a decade-and-a-half, and is still producing at a star level night in and night out.
What do you think? Is T-Mac worthy of Hall of Fame status? Let us know in the comment section below.
