Tracy McGrady blocks Shaquille O'Neal

In June did a small piece on a dunk by Vince Carter from a TOR vs LAL game early in the 1999-00 season.

Whilst this game is best remembered for that very dunk, the Toronto squad included a maturing Tracy McGrady whose highlight reel plays rivaled that of his much heralded cousin - and we're not just talking offensive aerial artistry.

Through the first eight games of the 1999-00 season, T-Mac was averaging 2.8 blocks a game. Against the Lakers, he would only have one. But it was a good one.

Ack that it was clearly a goal tend, but with no call on the play we're more than happy to run with it.

A big thanks to YouTube channel Hastings 66ers (aka The Beverley Turner Channel) for providing this game in full. You may want to check out McGrady punching one on Brian Shaw as well.
