Carmelo Anthony, Paul Pierce

Kobe Bryant is perhaps the best individual scorer basketball has ever seen. No player in league history boasts the combination of size, athleticism, scoring ability, and playmaking talent of LeBron James. And Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady are the best reasonable facsimiles of Bryant and James that have appeared over the past two decades. But no member of that esteemed quartet is the star who Paul Pierce deems his toughest defensive assignment. In a new post for The Players’ Tribune, the Washington Wizards forward and Boston Celtics legend says no player is harder to guard than Carmelo Anthony. Read More »

In a conversation with the San Antonio Express-News‘ Dan McCarney, Bowen says Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter both “settled,” but could have been all-time greats like Kobe Bryant. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Tracy McGrady On His NBA Legacy, Minor League Baseball, & More

Tracy McGrady

The top amateur talent from all over the globe was in attendance this past weekend in Garden Grove, CA for adidas Nations.

Once a top amateur talent himself, the future Hall-of-Famer took the court at Next Level Sports Complex on Sunday afternoon, matching up with Arizona Freshman Stanley Johnson, giving him a few pointers during the afternoon college counselor games in the process.

I had the chance to catch up with T-Mac after he cooled off from playing to talk about his first strikeout as a minor league pitcher, playing with the young guys at Nations, dunking on Shawn Bradley and life after basketball. Read More »
