When JaVale McGee was on the Washington Wizards, he provided us with almost weekly entertainment in the form of some sort of outrageously awful play, a boneheaded decision or some off-the-court drama. When he joined the Denver Nuggets, he cleaned up his act a bit and proved that he could actually contribute to an NBA team.
He is more successful in Denver, but you can tell there is still something a bit off about him.
And what do we do with athletes that have a quirky side? That’s right, we give them their own reality show.
JaVale and his mom, former WNBA player Pamela McGee, will be featured on a new show on Oprah Winfrey’s network called “Millionaire Mama’s Boy.”
If I can find the OWN network, I may have to check this one out. Judging by the title, I’m guessing we will see a lot of conversations like this:
Pam: “JaVale, eat your peas or you can’t play against the Thunder tonight.”
JaVale: “MOOOOM, none of the other guys on the team have to eat their peas!”
