WNBA Athlete Pam McGhee Tells Denver Nuggets NBA Son: “Wrap It Up”
From The Grio
The Oprah Winfrey Network’s new series Mom’s Got Game, explores the relationship between former WNBA star Pam McGee, and her 25-year-old son, Denver Nuggets center, JaVale McGee.
Pam is not only JaVale’s mother, but also his business manager, overseeing his four-year, $44 million dollar NBA contract.
Meanwhile Pam is managing her own life, attempting to get back into the dating game.
In an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Pam recalled her son recently lavishing her with the surprise gift of new Porsche.
“He’s just a generous good soul and a good spirit, and he wants to surprise his mother because he’s so thankful for the sacrifices that I’ve made, but most the times he buys me gifts and I take them back.”
“I’m basically his balance,” Pam said. “Because when your twenty five, you don’t know what you don’t know until you know. It’s no way that a 20-year-old can know what to do with millions of dollars. I let him know, ‘you a signed a contract for $44 million but don’t you forget my mother cleaned toilets for $1.25 an hour, so let’s not get it twisted.’”
