For Pam and JaVale McGee, basketball is a family business. Pam McGee is the first WBNA star to have a son play in the NBA, and now, she and JaVale are appearing in a new show called "Mom's Got Game," airing this month on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
"The Kennedys do politics. The McGees, we do basketball," Pam says.
A former WNBA Hall of Famer, Pam is known for being domineering both on and off the court. JaVale, a center for the Denver Nuggets, has a reputation for being a colorful and eccentric character -- and also one with incredible athleticism and skill. "Mom's Got Game" will explore the dynamic relationship between these two larger-than-life basketball superstars.
However, Pam isn't just 25-year-old JaVale's mother; she's also his business manager. As Pam works to keep her own busy life on track, she's also determined to keep a tight rein on the glitz and girls that come with the life of an NBA star.
