Pamela McGee's presence, usually two rows behind the basket, hung over every minute that her son, JaVale, spent during three-and-a-half seasons with the Washington Wizards.
Television executives have noticed, and the two will star in a reality TV series on the Oprah Winfrey Network called "Millionaire Mama's Boy."
JaVale McGee, of course, has spent the last year putting his at times amazing, at times frustrating and often hilarious on-court antics on display with the Denver Nuggets. He signed a four-year, $44 million deal in the offseason, one that also kept his "alter ego," Pierre, and a variety of interests and hobbies off the court in the Mile High City.
Pamela, a former WNBA star herself, staunchly defended her boy in Washington as his puzzling plays overshadowed his freakish talent. She was there for every play during last year's playoffs, too. But now we'll finally get to know what she thinks when he puts his finger with the curly mustache tattooed on it across his top lip.
