Certainly, they're 2 of the most talented guys to ever come around.
Tmac was not as physically gifted as Lebron but he was more overall skilled than he was. Specifically with his smooth jump shot.
Tmac was probably just as quick and fast as Lebron was, maybe even quicker and faster, but the strength is the biggest difference between the two and that is where Lebron has a huge physical edge over McGrady.
