JaVale McGee Is Now The Patron Saint Of Shunning Hockey

So, even when JaVale — or Pierre, as he goes by on Twitter for some inexplicable reason — makes a controversial statement, you have to think about it. Have to give it its due, so to speak. Like that thing he said about his mom:

Is hockey, in fact, BOOORING? Have I been misunderstanding it this whole time? Were all those state championships I watched my high school win just a side-effect of a dreamlike fugue state? Is my life actually a David Lynch film?

I'm going to have to pull rank here, JaVale — hockey is many things, but it isn't boring.
