There’s no shortage of interesting players on this Warriors team, but if you aren’t following Javale McGee on instagram you are missing out. While he continues to work (in spite of Andre Iguodala’s input) on his three point shot during this offseason, everyone deserves a break from time to time.

Traffic can be hell though; And just like I learned yesterday, I’m not the only one who though it would be a good idea to go to the beach. Sure, it took an hour-and-a-half to get to Half Moon Bay yesterday, but it’s all worth it as soon as you are frolicking in the waves with your family and friends. And seriously, consider the beach this weekend. Yeah, it is indeed crowded, but the record-breaking area heat wave and an unusually warm Ocean temperature means that you don’t need a wetsuit if you want to swim in the Ocean.

But back to McGee and traffic - did you know that last year’s Labor Day set a record for travel on that date? Well, it turns out this year’s roadways should be even slightly more crowded.

More people will get away this Memorial Day weekend than have in the past 12 years, with 39.3 million U.S. travelers expected to take to the road, skies, rails and water, according to a forecast released Wednesday from auto club AAA.

Ok, so none of this is new, or heck, even noteworthy. I just bring the numbers into the conversation to provide a bit of context. It’s hot. And very trafficy. But Javale McGee is out here on Instagram reminding us that every car is different.

Here’s a snapshot of the struggle that McGee is going through. I used to think there was nothing cute about road rage, but this little clip has changed my mind.

As usual with McGee’s Instagram posts, you absolutely must turn your sound on for this video:

La traffic be like.....
