The only thing Denver Nuggets star JaVale McGee likes more than a goofy outfit ... IS A GREAT RIDDLE ... and last night, he challenged TMZ to a quality brainteaser right on the street!

Here's the deal ... McGee was leaving Crustacean in L.A. last night when one of our photogs hit up the 7-footer with a bunch of random, weird questions ... like, "How much would your $44 million contract weigh in gold bars?"

McGee didn't like the fact he didn't know the answer ... so he totally turned the tables -- and asked a riddle of his own!

The whole exchange is pretty funny ... our photog's a goofball, JaVale's a goofball -- turned out to be a pretty hilarious encounter.

Here is a riddle: WTF would ANYONE be paid $44 million to put a ball in a hoop?? Please tell him to budget a little for some barber grooming. His beard looks hard enough to scrub a grill.

Lasted 40 seconds... McGee and interviewer were equally uninteresting. I guess any dipsh*t can carry a camera around outside upside West Hollywood eateries and do stupid things with it.

Ha ha! Photographer's dipst•tness noted elsewhere on Web:
"What kind of dweeb finds himself in the presence of one of the most entertaining and personable players in the NBA, and then proceeds to waste everyone's time by bombarding that player with a series of idiotic questions and riddles? The kind of dweeb who works for TMZ."

The contract itself would not require a gold coin, because it is only 5-20 pages worth of paper. I don't have a calculator but since gold is about $1500 per ounce and 16 ozs. in a pound than it would be $24,000 per pound of gold . Which would be 1833 lbs. Depending on how much a gold bar weighs is left up to those producing them. Elementary Watson.
