JaVale McGee, a 25-year-old Denver Nuggets centre and social media extraordinaire, took player-fan interaction to a new level Thursday night.

Apparently Jonesing for some pastry goodness, McGee posted this on Twitter: “CRAVING: ANYBODY WANT A DOZEN KRISPY KREMES IN DENVER… IM BOUT TO HEAD UP THERE AND GET MY OWN DOZEN! I GOT U !”

Some of his more than 120,000 followers were intrigued by the offer, immediately replying to McGee’s invitation.

From there, McGee, who has since deleted his tweets relating to the Krispy Kreme excursion, posted the address of the donut shop he would be at, adding he’d be arriving there in a half-hour.


Shortly after, it appeared McGee was getting antsy and perhaps having second thoughts about the whole inviting-the-world-to-a-donut-party thing.

In trademark fashion, he tweeted in all caps: ”IM TOO SPONTANEOUS… IF I DONT DO IT RIGHT AWAY I WONT WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE…”

With the hashtag #FREEDONUTS in tow, McGee posted a we did it! tweet once the deed was complete: “DONE SHOUT OUT TO THE COUPLE THAT CAME UP TO GET THEY DOZEN DONUTS.”

So, there was a happy ending to this emotionally-charged pastry meet-up.

Well, at least for that happy couple (see below)…

“AYE IF U SHOWED UP LATE SOWWY TO HEAR IT…” McGee’s last donut-related tweet read.
