Why Has LeBron James Blocked JaVale McGee For The Last 2 Years On Instagram?
There are plenty of reasons to not like JaVale McGee, no more so than his entertaining-bordering-on-annoying social media presence. Perhaps that's why LeBron James -- ostensibly one of the nicest, most mature players in the league -- has blocked him from viewing his massively popular Instagram account for the last two years. Maybe the second greatest player of all time simply doesn't want anything to do with a guy who calls himself "Pierre" when he's communicating to the world in obscure emojis. We wouldn't blame him.
That being said, LeBron has over 16 million followers who actively leave creepy comments on his posts, so it's not like having one extra weirdo in the group would have any tangible impact on his day. Plus, the fact that someone follows you doesn't inherently mean that you have to see their annoying activity -- that's not how Instagram works -- so it's not like blocking McGee changes very much.
Could this be a case of the notoriously power hungry LeBron asserting his dominance over someone he deems an unworthy member of the NBA community? Is there be beef? Why doesn't he like JaVale McGee?

Let's run down the possible reasons as to why it's been two years since LeBron let the Dallas Mavericks center see all those cool pictures he post of his northern European fashion sense.
5) LeBron is a firm believer that anyone who photoshops literally everything they post to Instagram should be shunned by the online community until they stop.
4) LeBron is jealous of JaVale McGee's two-time "Shaqtin' A Fool" MVP honors.
3) LeBron can't get past the fact that McGee may have unintentionally ended the career of NBA icon Yao Ming.
1) Trying to posterize LeBron's teammate from the foul line was as insulting as it was painful when McGee sent his knee into the midsection of James Jones.
