According to Tracy McGrady the Bulls were trying to trade Scottie Pippen for him the night he was drafted. But Michael Jordan called the GM and stopped the trade.
Can you imagine if that trade would have gone through? Pippen would have been exiled to Toronto and McGrady woulf have been Jordan's right hand man.
This trade almost happening was as close as McGrady got to getting a ring. So close yet so far away.
MJ knew he was a loser.
