JaVale McGee is one of the best athletes in the NBA, though he is better known for his poor decisions that lead to infamous YouTube clips. Fans of McGee’s antics will soon get the chance to see the Nuggets center away from the hardwood, as the Oprah Winfrey Network announced that McGee and his mother will star in their own reality show. The network announced the addition of Millionaire Mama’s Boy along with several other shows Thursday morning. The show will follow the relationship of the 25-year-old pro and his mother, Pamela McGee, who played in the WNBA for two seasons and is currently his business manager. “They may be crazy, loud and a little wild, but family’s what it’s all about for the McGees and their friends,” the network said in a statement. “Ultimately, it’s a show about family, love and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son; all seven feet of him.” While McGee has been criticized for his questionable in-game decisions, especially as a member of the Washington Wizards, his mother has been there to speak up for him, as JP Finlay of Comcast SportsNet points out. The most notable instance occurred when McGee’s mother responded to a column referring to McGee and the rest of the Wizards as “knuckleheads.” The network has yet to determine when the show will air.
