George Karl once said that he thinks JaVale McGee “plays a little bit like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but he’s a defensive Kareem more than an offensive Kareem”. At just 25 years old, McGee still has a lot of basketball left to play in his career despite what gaffes you see him make on Shaqtin’ a Fool, and maybe Karl is crazy like a fox for making that kinda comparison. On the outside chance the current reigning Coach of the Year is right. Artist Chris Edser put together this piece of “Pierre” in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Hey, don’t look so skeptical. It could happen people.
Things have been very physical between Andrew Bogut and the frontcourt duo of Kenneth Faried and JaVale McGee throughout the Warriors versus Nuggets series. For the first couple games, Faried and McGee were winning the bruising battle. However in Game 4, the tide changed and Bogut struck back with a pair of vicious revenge dunks. I love the playoffs!
If anybody in the league besides JaVale McGee signed an invisible autograph for a referee during a game after a block it would be weird.
Andre Miller throws an alley-oop from waaaaay out that only JaVale McGee could convert on. Ridiculous.
So far 2013 JaVale McGee is pretty darn entertaining.
A few days ago McGee hit his first three that was accompanied by a strange culinary celebration. Now a few more days into the new year, Pierre displayed his game shoes that has the tagline from Quentin Tarantino‘s latest movie Django Unchained. I guess he really liked the film.
On his left shoe it says “My name is Django” and on his right shoe it says “The D is silent“. Please keep it rolling Pierre. The Internet needs more.
You can now love JaVale McGee for his three point accuracy and imaginary cooking.
As the Nuggets went to work on ending the Clippers monster 17 game win streak in Denver, they had some fun along the way. Case in point, Pierre stepping out past the three point line for the last shot of the third quarter and nailing the first ever trey of his career. To add a cherry on top of that fun, McGee celebrated with a little dance which involved him making a delicious pot of imaginary nothing and pretending to eat it. When asked about his odd celebration McGee replied.
“stirring the pot, then tasting it. I just wanted to show everybody that I have the most creative 3-point celebrations in the league.”
If this isn’t another reason to rejoice about the Mayans being wrong. I don’t know what is my friend.
