Details On JaVale McGee’s Parents
McGee was born on January 19, 1988, in an athlete-filled family to Pamela McGee and George Montgomery.
His father George is a former basketball player who was selected in the second round of the 1985 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers but never stepped in the NBA.

JaVale’s mother, Pamela McGee, won an Olympic gold medal in basketball and played professionally in the WNBA.
As reported, Pamela opted to raise JaVale as a single mother when she had him in her twenties.
As a result of Pamela’s fame and prowess as a basketball player, JaVale was exposed to the sport growing up.

McGee’s ability for basketball and his commitment to pursuing a basketball career is ingrained in him.
Currently, Javale McGee is in a relationship with his longtime girlfriend Giselle Ramirez. She is a former model & currently works as a real estate agent for Rodeo Realty Inc.
