NBA legend Tracy McGrady says he wants another shot in the league.
Is T-Mac Back?
T-Mac retired in 2013 and had a failed stint in minor league baseball this year, but the 35-year old claims he's good to go.
And the former seven-time NBA All-Star has revealed that he would like to make that comeback with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
“The thing is, I can still go, man,” T-Mac says. He is driving from lunch to his daughter Layla’s junior high school volleyball game, but the workout is still on his mind.
“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,” he says. “I want to be involved, that’s not saying 10 to 15 shots, I want to be involved. I don’t want to stand in the corner and shoot threes. That’s not me.”

The ideal team, T-Mac says, would be the Lakers. The Lakers are inexperienced. The Lakers need players. He could be the second star the Lakers must have to go with Bryant.
“This Kobe,” he says. “I could play with him.”
