Former NBA champion Metta World Peace (currently Metta Sandiford-Artest) had the opportunity to play with two of the most talented players in the game in Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady. Both of them were nearly impossible to stop on the offensive end and were true killers on the court.
When asked whether he would choose Kobe or T-Mac to take the last shot, World Peace opted for the five-time NBA champion. “I mean you always gonna go with Kobe because Kobe had five rings and you’re just going by the numbers. Now, in their prime it’s hard, they was really good,” he said on the newest episode of 1-ON-1 with Basketball Network.
Former Defensive Player of the Year also talked about McGrady’s true potential how he was unable to reach it. “Tracy got hurt, so with Tracy you know his back and his knees were so bad it just gave out early so you didn’t really get a chance to see how great Tracy was, but obviously he’s a Hall-of-Famer.
Obviously he played very well but it was just hard because he was so injured he couldn’t move towards the end of his career, so that really hurt him a lot.”
