MIAMI -  Tracy McGrady’s glory days are well behind him. He might not even play a second in this NBA final, yet, he sure still talks a world-class game.

Supremely confident, honest, and unafraid to speak his mind, it was no surprise that McGrady was surrounded by media on Friday afternoon throughout a half hour availability session.

Few were willing to leave the scrum with the two-time NBA scoring champion dropping constant gems.

McGrady said comparisons between LeBron James and Michael Jordan were off because: “(in the 1990s) there were grown men out there. There’s a lot of boys in our league right now.”

He said Tony Parker is the game’s premier point guard and broke down why he agreed to join San Antonio.

McGrady said he was shocked when Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called him out of the blue in April asking if he wanted to provide the team with some insurance in the wake of the release of Stephen Jackson.
