The only time that T-Mac made it past the first round was when he didn't play . How cant you make it past the first round with a top 3 centre for a couple years?? (while healthy)

I'll go with VC, still got a bit of respect for Vince even after sh*tting on Toronto because he came back in the playoffs and proved himself by sh*tting on us again

I personally liked Vince Carter more but Tmac was a better all around scorer and go to guy in his prime. Neither of them really did damage in the playoffs but Vince Carter will have a bigger legacy because of his endless highlight reel.

T-Mac had an all around game. Played D, and then on offense he will k!ll you with that effortless jumpshot, post up, or drive it to the rack, also a great passer.

Vince, was way more exciting to watch though. A bit above average d, not great court vision. But he could score the basketball though with the jumper or once he was on his way driving to the rack, you know its a basket. VC became a better/ more willing passer though once he was in NJ.

I loved watching both growing up, two of my favorites. But as far as who's better, goes to McGrady. I felt like I watched almost every game of their careers in their Raptor & Magic/ Net days.

If anyone remembers, my man Vince in his prime had what Griffin is going through now, everybody coming and wanting to watch him play, and then he had the hype of LeBron.

To my good ole VC fans or if anyone just wants to watch a good game,

His best game I think. There's some other ones that are as good or better though.

This is a good one though if you want to see him just messing around having fun. I love how he messes with the crowd and just lays it up on the fastbreak and then starts getting booed. But you know VC ill make it up with a dunk later on

VC had a better J. It it only got better over his career. T-Mac had to slash to get his points and to free up his shot. On offense alone at least VC is better just for that reason. Cuz VC of course could get to the rim. I havent looked at the FG% for both of them but I think Carter's was higher during his prime then T-Mac. Plus the Raptors had deep playoff runs. T-Mac could NEVER get his team out the 1st round 4 sh*t! AI mad sure VC's playoff run wasnt any deeper then it was the year the Sixers went to the Finals. And VC aint have a decent team round him till he wen to NJ. T-Mac had talent round him in Orlando and Houston in still 1st rd bye bye! VC got him beat there! Now the ? is who would win 1 on 1 when both was in they prime?!?!

I remember going to Nuggets vs Orlando game when Tmac dropped 50pts and they still lost. I remember he droped 45+ pts the previous game and they still lost...he had no help on Orlando. And on Houston Yao was merely developing his NBA game along with his American English

Vince win this one.
tmac was a crazy scorer with waaaaaaaaaaay more help than vince and didn't go nowhere in the playoff.

At the end of the day vince would be in the hall of fame with all the greats.

This is a tough one for me

And I disagree with the people saying T mac and its not even close, it's close imo.

I say T mac, but I wouldn't go anymore than t mac>>Vc. It's closer than most of u think.

Some you guys are just plain hating. The only argument that yall have against McGrady is that he never got out of the first round. You're acting like he was putting up LeBron finals numbers (career 28.5 ppg in post season). Who was the 2nd best player in Orlando? Darrell Armstrong? They were a bunch of bums. He had a decent team in Houston but him & Yao couldn't even stay on the court together (injuries). They also had to play some tough teams in the west. You have to be a complete hater to deny that it was him & Kobe at one point. VC is my dude but healthy T-Mac >>> VC.

Ok...

I'm not sure how long you guys have followed the NBA... but there was a point where T-Mac was being compared to Kobe and people were debating if T-Mac was the better player. T-Mac was considered a top 5 or even top 3 player in the league at one point in his career.

VC has never been compared or been regarded as the best SG/SF in the league... or even top 5... and never was compared to Kobe.


T-Mac was so much better than VC in his prime it's not close... getting out the 1st round isn't even a legit argument lol...
