In a re-assurance to Laker Nation, McGee proposes that “all memes aren’t bad.”
Man I wish they could all be like @JaValeMcGee. Here's my @ESPN Mag Q&A w/ @Lakers new big man (+his daughter Gigi – at circus school!) on playing with LeBron, their remodeled "Meme Team" & being the “only NBA player with one rat-tail & two rings." https://t.co/u3c42NHfpX

The big fella promises the L.A. faithful a show this season.
Pop quiz: What happens when you put Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley and JaVale on a roster?
McGee: “The Meme Team.”
I’d binge-watch a reality show of that locker room.
McGee: “I would too. It’s definitely gonna be hilarious. But all memes aren’t bad. There are some positive memes out there.”
This roster was designed in part as an answer to Golden State. They wanted guys who can create around LeBron [James] and get under players’ skin. You know the Dubs. Will that help?
McGee: “Definitely. If you look at all the guys we signed, they don’t care about anything other than getting wins. It’s definitely gonna be a show, but these guys are workers, grinders, and there’s gonna be some real fire lit under our asses out there.”
