T-Mac

Tracy McGrady is hoping to turn the Houston Rockets into the next powerhouse in the NBA's tough Western Conference.Kidzworld checks out the newest member of the Houston Rockets, whose shot blocking, slamming and trash talking make him one of the league's most dangerous players.

T-Mac's Mission

Tracy McGrady's goal has always been to make it to the pros and win a championship. He was good enough to play in the NBA right after high school so he never played basketball in college. He was drafted ninth overall by the Toronto Raptors in 1997. "I decided to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA early. I felt it was the best decision for my family and myself. I considered college, but my dream was to make it to the top, and I had a chance to do that earlier," says T-Mac on his official Web site. Tracy left the Toronto Raptors after three seasons so he could be a starter with the Orlando Magic. In 2004, Mcgrady was traded to the Houston Rockets in a blockbuster trade involving superstar, Steve Francis

The T-Mac Attack

Tracy McGrady is one of the best all-around players in the game. He rebounds, blocks shots, takes it to the rack and scores from the outside. In 2002-2003, he led the NBA in scoring and became the youngest player in nearly 30 years to average more than 30 points per game. The combination of McGrady and Yao Ming could make the Houston Rockets the next Western Conference powerhouse.

T-Mac Trash

Tracy McGrady is known as one of the best trash-talkers on the court. He called Glen "Big Dog" Robinson of the Milwaukee Bucks a "Puppy Dog" during the 2001 playoffs. Unfortunately, the trash back fired as the Bucks defeated the Magic in the series.

T-Mac Meal

Tracy McGrady is a big guy who needs to eat a lot of food so he can unleash the T-Mac Attack on other teams. He has his own chef to prepare meals for him on most days - but his favorite meal is his mother's special spaghetti and meatballs.

T-Mac's Music
He's never made a rap album like Allen Iverson but Tracy McGrady loves rap, R&B and hip-hop music. He usually has his stereo cranked to R. Kelly or Jay-Z.
