76ers G K.J. McDaniels' mother wants her son to get the ball

Monday December 22nd, 2014

Second-round draft pick K.J. McDaniels has been a pleasant surprise for the Philadelphia 76ers this season, but it turns out sitting next to the rookie's mother at a basketball game is anything but pleasant.

ESPNU's Jordan Eichenblatt happened to be sitting near McDaniels' vocal mother as the 76ers took on the Magic in Orlando on Sunday, and captured her hilarious calls for her son to get the ball, including booing his teammates.

K.J. did manage to put up nine points and grab five rebounds in 20 minutes during the win, although it seems his mother would have preferred him to have scored all 96 of the team's points.
