JaVale McGee vents about reporters

Evidently, JaVale McGee read some articles he didn't like after being cut from Team USA yesterday.  I know this because he said so in a series of Tweets yesterday.

Reporters who never played the game of basketball or never succeeded in it... Shouldn't b able to report on it #FACTless than a minute ago via Twitterrific

(On a somewhat unrelated note, JaVale also tweeted this last night).

Who knows exactly which articles made him upset, but I actually don't think JaVale's opinion is a particularly unique one among NBA athletes.  Hell, I'm sure you'd be frustrated if someone who never performed your job was questioning your ability to do so.  That said, this is sports, and sports is different.  Criticism happens, and you kind of just need to have a thick skin in this business.
