Russell suggested in a tweet nearly two weeks ago that Tracy McGrady is the greatest player of all time. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and his legions of fans expressed their disapproval over Russell’s since-deleted tweet, though Russell said Bryant “was cool” about the incident. “There’s a lot of spoiled Lakers fans. I wasn’t downgrading Kobe at all,” Russell said Saturday in an interview with the Los Angeles News Group. “I was just watching a highlight tape of Tracy McGrady and I got excited. I tweeted and the whole state of California went crazy.”

Tracy McGrady is very popular in China — he was still a relatively high-flying star with the Houston Rockets when Yao Ming was a dominant NBA center. You know, back when everyone in China was watching and rooting for the Rockets. Then, after McGrady played 16 NBA seasons, he suited up for one more in the Chinese Basketball Association to cash in on that popularity. His star has not yet faded over there. He’s so big in China he got his jersey retired — somewhere, we’re not exactly sure where — after his 2015 summer tour of the country. There is video proof.

McGrady, nicknamed T-Mac, is in Shanghai for the last stop of the T-Mac All-Star Series. His American all-star team will play against local side Shanghai Sharks at Pudong’s Yuanshen Stadium on Friday. The tour, which began on July 5, is probably McGrady’s last China tour as a professional. It has already visited 14 cities before coming to Yao’s hometown. “Shanghai is a beautiful city. Having been a teammate with Yao for six years, it’s meaningful to spend some time with Yao on the last stop of the tour,” he said.
