Via Larry Brown Sports:
JaVale McGee tried to do an extremely nice gesture for some of his fans, but in typical McGee fashion, he screwed it up.
McGee, who is lauded for his talents but often derided for his screwball ways, sent a tweet on Monday to spontaneously offer Chipotle to 10 of his Twitter followers. He’s deleted the tweets, but they were snagged by Black Sports Online:
You mean to tell me that McGee gave his fans a five-minute warning to claim a meal and he hardly got a response?
There’s a shocker.
One dude did eventually show, and McGee treated him to lunch. McGee shared a photo of the two together at the restaurant, and the lucky fan later thanked McGee via Twitter.
After Monday’s free lunch didn’t work out too well, McGee figured he’d give it another go on Tuesday. This time he gave fans an hour’s notice, and he had a much more positive response, buying lunch for 10 followers.
You may be wondering what inspired McGee’s nice gesture. It is believed that this was a response to the “groupie tale” gone wrong posted by Black Sports Online over the weekend. According to BSO’s uncorroborated story, a woman who flew out to spend time with McGee complained about his mistreatment of her, specifically noting that he didn’t buy her some Chipotle. Way to turn a negative into a positive, JaVale!
