Tracy McGrady Says J.R. Smith Sounds ‘Dumb As Hell’ For His Championship vs. Hall of Fame Argument (VIDEO)
Two months ago, former NBA player Tracy McGrady, who was soon to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, made some comments regarding players who didn’t win any championships going into the hall that raised a few eyebrows.
“Social media can give a lot of people voices these days, and the first thing they say is ‘No rings, no rings,’” McGrady said, according to Mass Live’s Tom Westerholm. “You have to have a great team and some luck to get a ring, right? Unfortunately, I wasn’t blessed with that. But I go back at them with this: Anybody can win a championship. Everybody can’t get in the Hall of Fame.”
Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith wasn’t feeling that quote by McGrady at all, so he took to Twitter to see if anyone else felt like what he said was ‘dumb as hell.’ Smith also agreed with another person who stated everybody pretty much makes the hall of fame nowadays.
Months later and McGrady was finally asked about those comments from Smith. He returned fire by stating he is the one that is ‘dumb as hell.’
