JaVale McGee threw a Chipotle party this week. He invited all of his fans from Twitter, and was prepared to buy burritos for everybody. Then one person total showed up and awkwardness ensued.
That one person also later admitted that McGee is only one of his favorite Nuggets. Not the favorite, after he just bought dude lunch, one of his favorites.
The following from Deadspin:
JaVale McGee invited 10 Twitter followers to a free lunch with him at Chipotle yesterday. And in typically JaVale fashion, the invitation was well-intentioned, but poorly thought out, producing a hilarious result. Given just five minutes notice, only one fan made it to Chipotle: Andy Mathisen, who doesn't even list the Nuggets among his fan allegiances in his Twitter bio.
Mathisen took to Twitter to thank McGee, "one of his favorite Nuggets," for the free lunch. Maybe had McGee had just given him the other nine burritos, Mathisen would have called McGee his favorite Nugget.
Lessoned learned here is that not everybody is sitting around waiting for an NBA player to invite them to Chipotle. People need more than five minutes notice, and had McGee given them about an hour, this story would've read differently. But he didn't, and it's funny. Hopefully more people show up next time.
