JaVale McGee has enjoyed a great spell in the league over the last few seasons. The 32-year-old has won 3 NBA titles in his career, his most recent one with the LA Lakers last season. However, the Lakers traded him to Cleveland in the 2020 offseason.
In his first few games as a Cavalier, he is playing good averaging 10.5 points along 7.7 rebounds per game. But it all went down the drain, when McGee airballed a close shot against the Hawks.
Following the miss, NBA fans trolled McGee, which is something quite common on social media sites. While McGee usually takes things light-heartedly, this time around, he had a message for people trolling him.
“The thing about social media is its not real! You have to remember that when reading. You airball a shot it will get a million rts… but u make an amazing offensive move and win the game… NOT SO MUCH… remember your worth and never let social media determine how you c urself!”
As McGee mentioned, sometimes fans go a little overboard while trolling players. In that process, they forget to appreciate players for their good games. Hopefully, this message from JaVale McGee will act as a wake up call for everyone. NBA players are human as well, and they deserve to be treated with respect.
What’s next for JaVale McGee and the Cleveland Cavaliers?
With him joining Andre Drummond and the Cavaliers, the team has one of the best frontcourt pairs in the league. Furthermore, they have had a blazing start to the 2020-21 NBA season, winning 4 out of their 6 games.
The young pair of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland are developing into a lethal combo for the Cavs. However, as far as the expectations from them, they are definitely a few years away from becoming a legitimate title contenders.
For now, if they can make the playoffs in a tough Eastern Conference this year, it will be considered a good season for the team. But what are your thoughts on the Cavaliers? Let us know your views in the comments section down below.
