JaVale McGee’s now-famous cat has its own Instagram account (pics)

JaVale McGee is one of the quirkier personalities currently playing in the NBA and an odd tidbit provided about him during Thursday’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals showcased as much.

McGee was profiled via a bio graphic during ABC’s coverage of the Game 1 showdown between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. Evidently short on information on the Warriors big man, the graphic mentioned McGee “owns a sphynx cat.”

Interesting? Yes. The most informative nugget? Not so much.

Anyway, not only is McGee the proud owner of such a cat, he actually set up an Instagram account for the feline.

Me and the homie….

“rajathesphynx” was born on Dec. 2, 2015 and its life and times have been documented since then on said page, including how the cat … once received a massage.

Magic fingers, indeed. Evidently.

McGee also documented how he enjoys sharing his meals with his beloved cat.

McGee, like many animal lovers, also enjoys dressing up his pet in outfits, including a 4th of July-themed getup and a cat-sized version of his Warriors jersey.

HAPPY 4th y’all!
