He speaks with CNN sports anchor Ric Burns about his incredible night in London, his incredible footwork, the Olympic Games and the London marathon.
McGrady is an American basketball star who won two NBA titles in two separate stints with the Golden State Warriors. He currently plays for the Houston Rockets.
He is currently in the middle of one of the best seasons of his career.
Having played with the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, McGrady says he believes Stephen Curry and Co. can dominate the NBA all the way to next June’s NBA Finals.
“I always said (Chris) Paul’s getting the credit and that’s not fair. The great player in the league is Steph Curry. He’s better than Paul. He’s one of the most skilled players in the league. He has the kind of court vision Paul doesn’t have. He’s great at pick and roll.
“But Paul can do a lot more than that. We have (Derrick) Rose, Russell Westbrook and maybe we have Carmelo (Anthony). We’re going to be very, very good.
“But, to me, it’s going to be a hell of a run. I’m just here to win.”
