To celebrate Tracy McGrady being named an inductee in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the NBA looks back on the basketball great's career, with a clip full of highlights. It's always a cool ceremony, and this year was no exception, with McGrady headlining the class and giving one heck of a speech. He spent 15 years in the National Basketball Association, playing for six different teams. McGrady played for a total of six teams in his 16-season NBA career, earning seven All-Star Game appearances and being a seven-time All-NBA selection as well.

Still, it took McGrady a while to admit to himself he belonged in the Hall of Fame.
