BREAKING: JaVale McGee is turning Filipino
Move over, Nate Robinson. Step aside, DeMarcus Cousins. Take a knee, Tim Tebow. JaVale McGee is joining the family.
Antipolo City representative Robbie Puno has filed House Bill 6169, which would naturalize JaVale McGee, making him a Filipino citizen, and eligible to play for the SMART-Gilas Pilipinas national team
Puno, in his bill’s cover letter, cited McGee’s “remarkable track record in the United States’ professional basketball scene” as consideration for his inclusion in the SMART-Gilas program.
“Remarkable” is certainly one way to describe his “track record.”
Let me be the first to say, “Welcome, JaVale! We’re glad to have you, your dunks, and your antics, and we’re proud to soon call you an honorary Filipino.” #KUYA
WAIT WHAT. Forget about JaVale McGee being an honorary Filipino (wtf). Certainly “JaVale” and “SMART” do not belong in the same sentence!!!! jkjkjkjkjkjkjk
