The Time JaVale McGee Had The Perfect Comeback For A Hater

I'll be honest, the NBA season kind of snuck up on me this year—I mean, would it be so wrong for basketball to just chill for a minute until the World Series is over?—but I officially got excited for the season while reading Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson's AMA on Reddit yesterday, because he reminded me that JaVale… » 10/28/14 11:16am 10/28/14 11:16am

JaVale McGee Just Created Two Of The Best NBA Highlights Of The Season

Our old buddy Pierre just posted both of the clips below to his Instagram account, and I cannot stop laughing at them for reasons I can't completely explain. Maybe it's the music, maybe it's the slo-mo, or maybe it's just because I'm desperate for things to laugh at now that I've been robbed of JaVale's on-court… » 1/07/14 6:05pm 1/07/14 6:05pm

JaVale McGee Blocks Shot, Pretends To Sign Ball

Here's JaVale McGee's latest addition to his growing repertoire of awesome celebrations. We've seen the fingerstache and the finger-lickin'-good three-point celebration, and now we have this. After blocking a Matt Barnes layup attempt in the third quarter of last night's Clippers-Nuggets game, McGee quickly retrieved… » 3/08/13 9:40am 3/08/13 9:40am

JaVale McGee Spikes A Shot Into The Crowd, Preens, Throws Down Alley-Oop

Some advice for Anthony Tolliver: Next time, just forgo the pump fake and shoot the ball over Wilson Chandler. Chandler may have gotten a hand in your face and disrupted your shot, but he probably wouldn't have infantilized you with a vicious volleyball-spike, mean mugged at the crowd until he got the ball back, and… » 3/05/13 10:25am 3/05/13 10:25am

When JaVale McGee Was 18, He Wore A Grill Made Of Aluminum Foil

First off, JaVale looks about 13 here. But he was 18, according to J-Mac himself when he posted the photo to his Instagram yesterday (throwback Thursday!). He was either about to start college, or was already Nevada's starting center. A little too old (and recent—just seven years ago) to be living the thug life by… » 2/22/13 1:45pm 2/22/13 1:45pm

JaVale McGee Throws Himself An Alley-Oop, Dons A Celebratory…

JaVale McGee continues to be a delight. A normal basketball player, after fooling Omer Asik with a savvy pump fake, would have finished this play with a simple step-through move and a gentle layup. But JaVale McGee is not a normal basketball player, and so the fact that he decided to throw himself an alley-oop off… » 1/24/13 10:05am 1/24/13 10:05am

JaVale McGee Goes Up And Over Two Of His Own Teammates For A Putback…

See, this is why we love JaVale McGee: he'll forego the smart play for the spectacular play. Late in the first half of yesterday's win over the Lakers, a missed Kosta Koufos layup bounced right in the middle of three Nuggets. Rather than yell "same team" or beg off to avoid deflecting the ball, McGee just went right… » 1/07/13 9:40am 1/07/13 9:40am

JaVale McGee Hits Buzzer-Beating Three, Unveils Wonderful Celebration

In recent years, the NBA has showcased a variety of creative three-point celebrations. We've seen the championship belt, the three goggles, and the three-to-the-head, among others. But none of those moves are quite like what JaVale McGee dropped on us last night after hitting a buzzer-beating three (his first of the… » 1/02/13 9:40am 1/02/13 9:40am
