JaVale McGee's new tattoo: 'Couldn't of got it without my brothers!'

JaVale McGee got some new ink this summer.

How do we know?

Because he posted a picture of the tattoo on Instagram:

Remember the story Steve Kerr revealed on The Lowe Post podcast two days after the Warriors beat the Cavs in Game 5?

When asked if there was a specific moment from the celebration that stood out the most, Kerr said:

"The party was great but what I'm gonna remember -- the thing that's gonna jump out -- is my exchange with JaVale McGee as the stage was being set on the court, literally minutes after the buzzer sounded. JaVale came up to me -- he was hugging his daugther, his daugther is about six months old I think -- and he was bawling. He was bawling.

"He just came over to me and gave me a huge hug and he just told me how happy he was and how much he loved the team and the season he just had and how meaningful it was. And that's what will jump out."

After the Warriors drafted Jordan Bell, re-signed Zaza Pachulia and gave the full taxpayer mid-level exception to Nick Young, it appeared McGee wouldn't be back with Golden State for a second season.

He was reportedly unhappy with the Warriors and was seeking a salary more than the veteran minimum.

Although that never materialized, McGee had a great experience in the Bay Area and decided to return.

If the Warriors win the title again in 2018, perhaps McGee will get the same tattoo on the other forearm?

Steph Curry's net pay after taxes, escrow, agent fees

In July, Steph Curry signed a 5-year deal worth $201,158,790.

- 2017-18 = $34,682,500
- 2018-19 = $37,457,153
- 2019-20 = $40,231,758
- 2020-21 = 43,006,362
- 2021-22 = $45,780,966

On Tuesday, ESPN's Darren Rovell and Bobby Marks examined Curry's salary for this season.

When you factor in everything, the two-time MVP's net pay is...

$15,263,905.

Here's how Rovell and Marks arrived at that number:

- 2017-18 escrow (10 percent) = -$3,468,255
- Federal taxes = -$11,655,683
- City/state taxes = -$4,105,453
- Agent fees (3 percent) = -$954,597
- 401K (max allowed) = -$18,000
- 2016-17 escrow = +$605,618
- Shortfall = +$177,725 

Steph Curry pays a lot of money in taxes. 

Steph Curry makes a lot of money.

When it comes to net pay, LeBron James ($16,737,751) is No. 1 and Paul Millsap ($15,563,401) is No. 2.

Former Warriors guard insults Durant, then deletes tweet

On Tuesday afternoon, Jordan Crawford was on Twitter.

[RELATED: Kevin Durant addresses his deleted tweets: 'Childish, idiotic']

When he saw the following tweet...

... Crawford quote tweeted it by saying:

"A 7ft 12 year old."

Within a matter of seconds, Crawford deleted the tweet.

This is funny, of course, because Durant recently deleted two tweets in which he said some not-so-nice things about the OKC franchise, Thunder players and head coach Billy Donovan.

Crawford appeared in 42 regular season games for the Warriors during the 2013-14 season, averaging 8.4 points per contest.

He scored 41 points in the season finale against the Nuggets.

After two years out of the league, Crawford averaged 14.1 points and 3.0 assists over 19 games with the Pelicans last season.
