JaVale McGee is apparently a big fan of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. It’s fun to imagine McGee sitting down on his couch, turning on USA at noon on a Sunday, and spending the next eight hours getting lost in a marathon of the popular show about the dedicated detectives who investigate vicious felonies in New York City.
We know this because McGee sent out a tweet about his desire to appear on an episode of SVU. I cannot stress enough how much I endorse this idea.
Apparently, the Warriors’ big man decided that he does not want to play a murder victim. We know this because McGee took his SVU dream an extra step and explain that he really wants to be interrogated by Ice-T, who plays one of the unit’s longest tenured members, detective Odafin “Fin” Tutuola.
Sure, we have no idea how good McGee is at acting, and really his only television work outside of his NBA career has come via his feud with Shaquille O’Neal. But the thought of McGee involved in an episode of SVU would be fantastic. Really, let’s do an episode where every member of the Warriors is involved in some capacity. McGee can be the high-profile defendant with an even higher-profile lawyer in Steve Kerr, Kevin Durant can join the district attorney’s office, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson can join the special victims’ unit as a pair of rough cops who don’t play by the rules, etc.
Please make this happen, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit executive producer Dick Wolf. I have never wanted anything as badly as much as I want everyone on the Warriors to be on an episode of your show.
