Post#1 TMac says he never went to Germany with Kobe
Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:14 am by anish23

McGrady heard about Bryant's version of the story and responded on Twitter.

"LOL Hell no! That's far from the truth. No one in the NBA is playing 1 on 1. Me and KB never went to Germany together either.."

So... this is getting interesting.

Who is lying?..

I would say TMac is probably lying, cuz why on earth would Bryant make up such a story.

Even though im a Tmac fan and I hate Kobe as much as I hate Bush.
Hmm......

I believe their both lying and trying to cover up their sexual experience in Germany so nobody ever finds out the truth what went down behind closed doors.

Tmac is lying more. Kobe just forgot what country he went to.

Kobe is actually talking about the 1998 or 1999 adidas tour he had with Tmac in China and Manilla. I think if you google that articles and videos come up.

Why should McGrady participate in such an event at that time, when he signed his contract with Adidas in 2002?

Tmac signed.his.lifetime deal in 2002.... But signed with them out of HS in 97. Just.like D Rose signed a rookie.deal with adidas in 08 and got a lifetime deal in 2012

Ok, didn't know that. He signed a 6yr contract back in the summer of 1997. But I tried to find any arcticles about a Adidas tour from 1998 or 1999 with McGrady participating. The Google archive can't find anything from 1/1/1998 to 12/31/1999. So, while you are sure about that, you may want to give a proof.

LOL at Tmac trying to save face. I don't see why Kobe would have just made up a detailed story like that. If he wanted to lie he could have just said "Oh yeah, I beat Tmac a couple times back in the day" or something vague.

Tracy is lying. I have an old XXL magazine (European basketball mag) somewhere from 1999 where there's an Adidas article about those two being in Germany.

TMac was more physically gifted; Kobe was more mentally gifted. Look how its turned out for them both. They mental and emotional evaluations prior to the draft should be more in depth, IMO.

Would you mind scanning part of the article in order to provide evidence?

I have no idea where it is now. Probably in the basement somewhere. I remember it vividly, because that magazine was all I had that was NBA-related for about six months when I was 13 years old. Must have read it like 50 times. Antoine Walker was there, too.

Maybe a Streetball event? Walker was a bigger name at that time, but I couldn't find articles about him being in Germany either. I have some blurred memory of someone telling me he once met Walker at an Streetball competition back in the late 90's in Germany, but I can't remember who it was, he might have mentioned Bryant as well, but I really don't know whether McGrady's name came up in that conversation.

It's really hard to see who is teling the truth. Why would Kobe make that up? It would be a stupid thing to do, but I would not be surprised due to his ego.
Why would T-Mac deny it? Well, to save face. At the same time he did thank Kobe on his farewell so I don't see why he would lie either.

I think Kobe created a TMac hoax to play against in Germany to add to his legend.

Kobe is a fraud.

Kobe provided way too many details for him to have made it up. He remembered the number of games they played, the score of one, Tracy having back pain, the reason they were in Germany. C'mon guys....I know this site largely dislikes Kobe but the guy isn't Lance Armstrong.

As for Tmac....dude just lost some of my respect. He's old, but not that old. He remembers this. Lying is bad enough, but even more so when it's over something of so little importance. To save face over some 1-on-1 games played more than a decade ago...smh.

Tmac is just a victim of another one of Kobe's elaborate hoaxs.
"Jordan Crawford kind of scares me. Like that kid in highschool who you let copy your homework once and then he wants to sit next to you everytime theres a test. Im not sure how that translates to the basketball court but dont let him get goin."
