This is why everyone loves JaVale McGee’: Lakers star surprises housekeeper with brilliant birthday celebration

Published

Lakers center JaVale McGee surprised his household help Maritza with a birthday celebration, much to the lady’s delight and disbelief.

They say one should judge people not by how they treat those better off, but those worse off than themselves.

Going by this adage, JaVale McGee is definitely one of the good people in the world. Judging from how he treats his longtime housekeeper, it is a lovely experience to work with the 7″ center without a doubt.

McGee is one of those NBA players who document their daily lives as part of vlogs. As of 11th November, the center has over 676,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. He started vlogging during his time with the 2016-17 Warriors, with a series called Parking Lot Chronicles gaining a lot of internet popularity.

JaVale McGee’s birthday surprise for houskeeper

Maritza, who turned 35 yesterday, was given a pleasant birthday treatment by her employer. JaVale went to the supermarket, bought a custom cake and threw in some tequilla for good measure for his housekeeper.

When he got back home, the 3-time NBA champion made Maritza close her eyes. He led her to the kitchen where he had the cake and tequila laid out. Maritza couldn’t stop screaming in happiness over the McGee’s sweet gesture.

McGee is currently on a veteran’s minimum contract, with a player option worth $4 million for the 2020-21 season. He still has a ton to offer the Lakers in terms of a rotation big man to give Anthony Davis the rest he needs.

Whether or not he features in the Lakers’ future plans is a matter for another day. But McGee definitely won over a lot of detractors to his side after this gesture of sorts for his employee.

Dennis Schroder is reportedly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Danny Green and the 28th pick in the NBA Draft.

With perhaps the first official trade of this NBA offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to bolster their backcourt. This is also the first trade since the trade deadline ended back in February.

With reports indicating Rajon Rondo’s potential departure from the Lakeshow, the Lakers made sure they had a decent point guard to lead them into the 2020-21 NBA season.

However, in doing so, the Lakers have lost their marksman from beyond the arc.

Dennis Schroder to the Lakers; Danny Green to the Thunder

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed in principle to trade Danny Green and their 28th pick in this year’s NBA draft to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will be sending Dennis Schroder to the Lakers, officially, when the trade moratorium is lifted.

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was a valuable piece in OKC’s run to the 5th seed in the Western Conference. He averaged 18.9 points and 4 assists in 30 minutes of action. He also shot 38.5% from 3 point land.

LeBron James ‘tampers’ with Dennis Schroder during last season

A video of LeBron James hugging Dennis Schroder during a matchup between the Lakers and OKC last season resurfaced online.

NBA Twitter was seen freaking out over this video as they hilariously claim this is LeBron tampering whilst the season was in play.

LeBron James has a reputation for luring stars to his team throughout the entirety of a season to bolster his squad for the next season. It is also being reported the Lakers are already in the hunt for a replacement for Danny Green.
