Watching a Lakers pre-season game, Tracy McGrady tweets that he feels sorry for Kobe Bryant when he returns.
Kobe and McGrady have both praised each other recently, saying how difficult the other was to guard as they were the two elite wing players in the early 2000s. Now that T-Mac is retired he has time to do things like watch NBA pre-season action. Last night he took in the Lakers, and did not like the product he saw on the court.
Showing his sympathy for Bryant, who McGrady hilariously refers to as "Jellybean," he said, "Sitting here watching the Lakers, and I feel sorry for my boy Jellybean when he comes back!"

The Lakers were picked to finish 12th in the West, and no one knows how Mamba will look when he returns, or when he'll be back in actual game shape. Can't tell if this was genuine concern from the former scoring champ, or if he's just trolling.
