Tracy McGrady, who is looking for a new start in Detroit, says he's jealous of what LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have in Miami.

"I am envious (of Miami's Big Three). I'm jealous as s--t,'' McGrady said Tuesday.

"I look at all the teams I've been on, and I never had a Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the same team. I'm jealous, but I'm happy for them. I hope they win 10 damn championships."

McGrady was nearly part of a similar Big Three back in 2000 when he signed with the Magic to pair with Grant Hill and Tim Duncan was being courted as well.

"Ten years ago, we could have done it (put a Big Three together) but without all the hype," McGrady said.

"But that's just wishful thinking now. It's what could have happened. It's only teasing me (to talk about it). So many nights I remember just wishing that Grant was healthy. I would have loved for Duncan to have been there, too, but a healthy Grant Hill would have been good enough (for me)."
