From “Shaqtin’ a Fool” to the Olympics. It is quite luminous.
There is no doubt that if the US basketball team wins a gold medal this year, then JaVale McGee, who was selected for the 2022 US Olympic basketball roster on Friday, will not be a “fool” gold medal.
that’s right – that JaVale McGee. This JaVale McGee.And now that is Olympian JaVale McGee. No substitutes are accepted.

The veteran center known for angering Shaquille O’Neal, usually an unfair meme player in the association, was appointed to the US team as one of Bradley Beal and Kevin Love’s substitute . Bill was placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocol, and Love retired due to a calf injury.
Another substitute: Spurs forward Kelden Johnson, was also a surprising choice that attracted some people’s attention. Both McGee and Johnson will participate in the Olympics for the first time as a member of the US team.
Some people questioned the choice of McGee and Johnson instead of Zion Williamson of the Pelicans or Tre Young of Atlanta.
In his second season with the Nuggets, McGee played 46 games for the Cavaliers and Denver in the 2020-21 season, and left his third championship team with the Lakers in 2020.
Of course, McGee is one of the most frequently chosen targets of NBA fans. Fans questioned head coach Gregg Popovich on Twitter – and made some dunks on McGee’s choice (Editor’s note: some NSFW languages in the following tweets):
Pope watched the US team and said that we need players like Javale McGee.He is cooked

I like this(????). He doesn’t care about touching the ball. Only used for board and edge protection. There is no 3 seconds. Once the ball hits the basket, there is no target. JaVale will make full use of the skills of Shaqtin A Fool https://t.co/5N5Qeh5rbE

It is expected that Shaq will pay attention to this news soon.
