McGrady, 33, played this season for the Qingdao Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association. He spent 15 seasons in the NBA, playing for the Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks. T-Mac was a seven-time All-Star and remains one of the most popular players in the world.
Williams, 37, spent 13 years in the NBA, winning the 2006 NBA championship with the Miami Heat. He became one of the league’s most recognizable player for his street ball style, pairing jaw-dropping dribble moves with breathtaking no-look passes.
