He is usually the butt of a lot of NBA jokes and goofed on by Shaquille O'Neal a lot, but there is no doubting Nuggets' JaVale McGee can tear down the rim and is uber-athletic.
Take Denver's recent game versus Phoenix.
McGee threw down a sweet one-handed alley-oop and crushed it on Hamed Haddadi which led to him taking a bow. I mean this is McGee so are we really surprised at these antics from him?
Check out McGee sick dunk and funny follow up. It is not at Shawn Kemp post-dunk awesomeness levels but at least JaVale is trying to mix it up.

JaVale McGee is one of those players who constantly shows flashes of greatness, but then always finds a to do something that you can’t help but laugh at.
During Monday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns, McGee threw down a powerful one-handed alley-oop from teammate Corey Brewer over Hamed Haddadi. After the dunk, JaVale decided to face Haddadi and...
One of the more entertaining teams to watch in the NBA has to be the Denver Nuggets and during Monday night's affair against the Phoenix Suns, star guard Ty Lawson decided to find an alley-oop connection with teammate, Kenneth Faired.Watch as Ty throws the half-court alley-oop in the second quarter of play to a soaring Kenneth:
Kosta Koufos scored a career high 22 points on 10-of-11 shooting, mostly from point-blank range, and the Denver Nuggets ran their winning streak to nine games with a 108-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

The Denver Nuggets are rounding into form just in time for the playoffs. After last season’s first-round-seven-game series loss against the Lakers, the Nuggets reshuffled in the off season picking up Andre Igudola. But a nice connection is developing between point guard Ty Lawson and forward Kenneth Faried.

Carmelo Anthony does not have many people in his corner in Denver anymore.
The franchise has moved on with a younger and cheaper roster that is still winning games at a playoff-caliber pace. Every player except Ty Lawson has moved on since Anthony’s departure in 2011. Fans have clearly moved on as well. The former Nuggets superstar is expected to be booed vehemently when he makes...
Ty Lawson and the Denver Nuggets will host former teammate Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks for the first time since the blockbuster deal in 2011. Lawson, who is the only current Nugget on the roster who played with Melo, couldn’t contain his excitement for the “huge” matchup, adding it “may be the most exciting game of the year.”

With a dominant 100-73 lead over the New York Knicks early in the fourth quarter, the Denver Nuggets fans, who booed Carmelo Anthony every time he touched the ball, began a ‘Where is Melo?’ chant for their former star who was in the locker room receiving treatment on a sore knee.

Carmelo Anthony's return to the Pepsi Center was a flop Wednesday night when Wilson Chandler scored 24 points and the Denver Nuggets blew out the ailing New York Knicks 117-94.
The Nuggets led by as many as 34 points on the way to winning their 10th straight game and 14th straight at home.
This one was such a laugher that their starters didn't play the fourth quarter.
Carmelo Anthony, now in his third season with the New York Knicks, is finally making the trip back to Denver to face the team who drafted him. Melo was dealt to the Knicks in 2011 for Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton and other pieces. Since the trade that shaped both teams for what seems to be the better, Carmelo has still to play a game in Denver against the Nuggets...
