Comeback or not, it's fun to take a look back at Tracy McGrady's career.

Word circulated earlier this week that Tracy McGrady was interested in an NBA comeback, at least according to Bleacher Report. In a lengthy feature by Les Carpenter, the seven-time All-Star said, "The thing is, I can still go, man. My body is still in shape. I can go. It’s about opportunity, though. … I want no limits on who I am and what I can do, not stand in the corner and shoot jump shots. I want to be involved." McGrady backed off those comments later in the week, saying he's "happily retired" but there appears to still be a flicker of doubt. I took this opportunity to collect some of McGrady's best photos, from his days as a high school prospect at Mt. Zion Christian Academy in North Carolina through the 2013 NBA Finals while a reserve on the Spurs.
