Mom's Got Game: Five things we want to learn from JaVale McGee's new reality show

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker isn't the only local sports star taking a stab at a reality show. (Click to see our post on Eric & Jessie: Game On). Beginning Saturday, Nuggets center JaVale McGee will co-star in Mom's Got Game on Oprah's cable network.

It's no surprise reality TV would take notice of JaVale's eccentricities, shared on social media and sports blogs. But the show will actually focus on his mother, Pamela McGee, who was a boisterous presence on the Nuggets sidelines during the team's 2012 playoff run.
