Lue spent two seasons with Jordan at the Washington Wizards between 2001 and 2003.

He had been traded from the Los Angeles Lakers where he’d won two NBA titles playing alongside Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal.

And the guard found himself rubbing shoulders with basketball royalty in Washington as he linked up with the newly unretired Jordan.

Speaking to The Players’ Tribune Knuckleheads podcast, Lue said: “I don’t care what anyone say, everyone idolized Michael Jordan.

“He took me under his wing and showed me a lot of stuff.”

During the interview, with Missouri native opened up on why he believed McGrady – who was later his teammate at the Orlando Magic – was so special.

He continued: “He was the same talent [as MJ and Kobe Bryant].

“Right shoulder, left shoulder, shoot threes, pass. He scored so easy, just no effort.

“The thing he doesn’t get credit for, he was hell of a passer. He could make all the plays.

“He was like a point guard. A 6-foot-9 point guard. He don’t get no credit, man.”

Jordan won six NBA titles during his illustrious career and is widely regarded as among the greatest players of all time.

McGrady was a seven-time All-Star in the NBA but never bagged an elusive championship.

He was twice named as NBA scoring champion and scored 18,381 points during his career, almost an average of 20 per game.

Since retiring, McGrady has worked for ESPN as an analyst and even had a short-lived career in baseball’s Atlantic League.
