Reality TV at its best…
The new OWN series “Mom’s Got Game” explores the dynamic relationship between former WNBA basketball star and Hall of Famer Pamela McGee and her 25-year-old son, Denver Nuggets center, JaVale McGee.
Pamela’s famous for being domineering on and off the court. And these days she’s not only JaVale’s mom, she’s also his business manager, working to build an empire while trying to keep a tight rein on the glitz and girls that come with the life of an NBA star.
JaVale’s a young, independent and strong-willed multi-millionaire. He’s always been close to his mother, but now wants to spend more time with friends his own age. Pam doesn’t like the distance that comes with living in separate cities, but JaVale’s happy he can enjoy a more laidback and luxurious lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Pamela’s managing her own life, which consists of her equally fabulous single girlfriends who also have sons trying to make it to the NBA. When Pamela needs someone to laugh with or a shoulder to cry on, she turns to her girls. Like Pamela, they are single mothers raising their sons while dating and chasing their own ambitions.
Like any good mother, Pamela is a force to be reckoned with, and no one is going to stop Mama McGee from taking care of her own. After all, she is basketball royalty herself. They may be crazy, loud and a little wild, but family’s what it’s all about for the McGees and all of their friends. Ultimately, it’s a show about family, love and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son; all seven feet of him.
Tune in Saturdays, starting January 18, 2014 at 10 p.m. to get a behind-the-scenes look at this dynamic, larger than life, family.
