    Oprah Winfrey is coming for BET and any other Black network that wants to be relevant. Her OWN network has already signed another Tyler Perry series based on the upcoming movie Single Mom’s Club and now she’s got a reality show sure to please fans of Basketball Wives and The Game. Former WNBA player Pamela McGhee and her son JaVale McGhee, who plays for the Denver Nuggets, are the subject of the new OWN reality show Mom’s Got Game, which premieres on Saturday, January 18th.

    “It’s real TV. He is actually my son and he actually plays in the NBA,” McGhee told The Tom Joyner Morning Show. “I’m not his momager, I’m his business manager. I’ve been in the game, played the game, won so many championships, been a professional athlete so I have insight and relationships most mothers don’t have.”

    McGhee, a native of Flint, Michigan, who played overseas and with the Los Angeles Sparks and the Sacramento Monarchs in the WNBA as well as winning a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics, says she and her son have been dubbed the real life version of Tasha Mack and Malik on The Game. McGhee says she handles her son’s business affairs, but that’s where it stops.

    “I don’t manage his relationships although he would like to manage mine,” laughs McGhee. “We really get into that in the show. I just celebrated my 50th birthday. I’m a WNBA Hall of Famer, and we’re the first WNBA mom to have a son in the NBA. So we’re exploring all those options mothers go through. He’s a grown man now and I’ve got to learn to let him go.”

    McGhee’s daughter Imani is also a ballplayer – she’s on a basketball scholarship at Tennessee. But the focus of the show is on McGhee’s relationships with her girlfriends, who have also been professional athletes or in one case, married to an athlete.

    1. This show is the best. I too was a single mom going to college and raising a child so i feel you but “iz married now”. Pam is portrayed in a respectable fashion. She inspires me to speak up for what i want and reach for the stars. Pam keep up the great work as you have raised a man, something to be proud of, & I commend you on that . Although, I hope to see your daughter on the show too one day. This is me and my husband’s #1 Saturday night show. Keep up the good work as we will continue to watch.
      Your Philly fans!

    2. I watched your show and was pleasantly surprised and proud that you portrayed a positive example of a single Black mother. I, too, am a single Black mother raising my 20 year son. He’s not a baller, but an excellent musician, and that can also create the same experiences as yourself. I applaud your tenacity and fortitude and look to more episodes !!!

    4. Just another GHETTO show about GHETTO black people!!!!! Why can’t you feature black people as well spoken,well educated viable people of the world???? There are many,many,many black people that have a lot of respect for themselves!!!! why not show it?

      • As a WNBA fan since its inception I can tell say “You don’t know what you’re talking about!” I think you are making asumptions based on “your perception” of sports. Pam has a college degree, is very intelligent and a woman of the world.
