JaVale McGee Never Fails To Impress

by Zettler Clay

JaVale McGee. Never a meh moment. Never provoking ennui.

I’m not sure what was more noteworthy. The coaches’ hysteria? The look of mischievous stoicism on his face as he trots back down court? The apathetic resignation from his teammates? The fact that the ball went 2,332 rows in the stands?

Of course this isn’t the first time McGee’s been sent to the bench for the outlandish. On one hand, the inner Naismith wants to come out and ream the underachieving talent for the (purposeful?) bouts of ineptitude. On the other, you can’t help but be amused by the “innocent Dennis the Menace, doesn’t know any better” charm.

As fellow producer Micah Hart stated earlier, my man just makes it too easy.

  6. Seriously? says:

    Is this really the first time you all have seen someone spike a ball out of bounds when they knew it would be a goaltending call??

  7. Haleybird says:

    He’s on a terrible team, so he’s going through the paces and seems resigned to the fact…they suck! Come’on he’s not stupid…just not engaged.

      if you can’t put real effort into the game, even whilste on a losing team, you don’t deserve to be there, and you don’t deserve your pay check.

      in the mean time, i am still pretty damn amused by this guys antics hahaha.

  8. Come on!!! says:

    Ahh, just leave this kid alone…this probably will make it on the Shaqin the fool segment and rightfully so but we all know he is obviously immature from his appearance on past segments. He is really talented and athletic (especially for his size) but the guy is on Wizards!!! Need I say more??

  9. Jumbo Robinson says:

    This kid has to be the stupidest player in the N.B.A. Of course his mother sees it otherwise… Pffft… Let’s hope their bloodline ends here. I can’t imagine any self respecting woman whose heart isn’t filled with avarice, contemplating marrying this kid and bearing his child. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    This guy has a great future in voleyball! The spike was perfect! Ahhw wait…this is basketball….

    When Ben Wallace did this versus the Lakers’ Shaq O’Neal during the 04 Finals series, it was a message. Detroit had been up by a considerable margin and he basically did this to say “You score when I allow you to.” Javale McGee must be wenting frustrations or something. It’s immature, because it is counterproductive. He’s playing a solid season this year (minus the FT percentage) but those plays just do not help the team in any way. Not even himself.
