Fans nowadays have the confidence to talk trash right in front of both current and former NBA stars. In the latest episode of fans gone wild, a fan called Tracy McGrady washed, and the Hall of Famer responded in the most epic way.

In what looks like a clip from One's Basketball League (OBL), McGrady’s one-on-one basketball league, a fan approached the 43-year-old and called him washed up. It would be interesting to know what triggered the fan to provoke McGrady. But whatever his reason is, talking smack to one of the greatest is uncalled for.

"I think you lost it, brother. He ain't T-Mac no more. He's Tracy," the fan said.

Of course, the fan should've thought twice before uttering a word. McGrady spent a good amount of years in the NBA with grown men who have a trash can for a mouth. In his NBA tenure, not only did McGrady hone his basketball talent but also his trash-talking antics. He responded in a great way and followed it up with a death stare.

"I don't play no more but I ain't lost it. I never lose it. I am [Tracy]. But Tracy would still whoop your ass, though," McGrady retorted.

They will never understand

Perhaps it’s an excellent time to remind ourselves how talented NBA players are, whether they are still playing or several years retired. Let’s look at the basic numbers. There are only around 450 players per season. Historical statistics reveal that there have been only 4,500 to 5,000 athletes who have graced the NBA courts.

Compare those numbers to the thousands of young guns trying out for the NBA every year, whether through the draft or other methods. Only a few of them get picked. And getting selected through the draft is just the first step. It’s not a guarantee that you’ll be heralded as one of the greats.

Former NBA player and one-time NBA champion Brian Scalabrine said it best: “I'm closer to LeBron than you are to me.” People like to poke fun at him because he averaged just 3.1 points per game in his 11-year NBA career. He calls himself a champion (which he is) despite not playing a single minute in the 2008 NBA Playoffs. Fans should slap a couple of times before they start talking smack to an NBA player — be it a role player, a scrub, or a star.
