We already loved Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee for his ability to climb the invisible ladder and dunk from half-court without jumping forward, but this could catapult him to legendary status.
As the headline suggests, McGee and teammate Evan Fournier uploaded a video of themselves making Mario Kart noises. I don’t know why it exists or why they’re doing it (besides the fact that Mario Kart is awesome, especially Double Dash) (bring back Double Dash), but now the Nuggets should have the ability to nuke any first place team with a blue shell.
First NBA player to make Chocobo noises wins my heart forever. I will also accept a well-done “Snake? SNAKE? SNAAAAAKEEEEEE!”
BEST OF MAXIM
JaVale McGee, the second highest-paid player on the Denver Nuggets roster, will get his chance to start in 2013-14. When former-Nugget starter Kosta Koufos got traded to the Memphis Grizziles during the 2013 NBA Draft, the Nuggets made it clear that McGee is their plan for the future.
Last season, McGee averaged 9.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 79 games for the Nuggets...
The NBA season is almost upon us so that means that JaVale McGee is here to entertain us whether on or off the court. McGee has quickly bonded with his Denver Nuggets teammate Evan Fournier, over their similar passion for Mario Kart. The racing duo love the game so much that they made an Instagram video of their Mario Kart voices.
The fine folks at For The Win wanted to see just...
Here’s we go.
JaVale McGee, who sets new marks for weirdness (in a good way) off the court, is still mastering the ins and outs of the NBA game. In at least one other game, though, he has nothing left to prove.
McGee and Nuggets teammate Evan Fournier showed off their extensive catalog of Mario Kart noises, from “Okie dokie!” to “Let’s a-go!” Check it out in the Instagram...
If you have played Nintendo’s Mario Kart, then you’ll know that these sounds by Denver Nuggets goofballs JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier.
If you have never played Nintendo’s Mario Kart, then you will have to accept my word that these sounds by Denver Nuggets goofballs JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier sound exactly like the game.

On the court Ty Lawson's gifts are easy to see — the speed the quickness the ball handling that help make him an elite point guard in the NBA. On a computer screen full of numbers his game looks something like this: PIE (11.8 percent) TS% (54.9) TmTOV% (14.6) ASTRatio (28.2) and NetRtg (4.4). Confused? You're not alone. But the people who study it invented parts of it...
LA Clippers All-Star Chris Paul torched the Denver Nuggets (2-3) for 40 points in a 118-111 overtime win Saturday. Evan Fournier and Anthony Randolph each tallied 16 pts for the Nuggets off the bench at The Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
The Nuggets had a chance to win at the end of the fourth quarter.
Down 104-102 with 22.5 seconds left , Paul drove to the basket...
The Denver Nuggets' JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier dominate voice impressions of the Mario Kart video game characters.
Every so often, Brian Shaw watches the Denver Nuggets revert back to their old fast-paced tendencies.
The first-year coach doesn't particularly mind or get all that miffed, realizing that all of those years of pushing the tempo under George Karl can't be changed in one training camp.
By the time January rolls around - maybe the All-Star break, at the latest - Shaw envisions...
The days became months and years and Anthony Randolph was beginning to square himself with the fact that a legitimate chance to play significant minutes might never come again.
So forgive him if he was a little skeptical when new Nuggets coach Brian Shaw arrived in town preaching competition all over the court.
But a funny thing happened: Shaw wasn't playing. The competition...

There are plenty of negative things you could find to say about newly signed Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson. You could criticize his shot-selection, his attitude at times, and his defensive abilities. You can never say that he doesn’t believe in himself, though.
Robinson is certainly one of the most confident players in the league...
Someone tell Denver's Nate Robinson it is just the preseason and for the most part, they are meaningless games. Then again, we are talking about Robinson who seems to have a perpetual chip on his shoulder and "short-guy" complex.
The feisty Nuggets' guard was fined $10,000 by the NBA for shoving Thunder's rookie Steven Adam in the back and hitting him on the...
According to Zach Lowe of Grantland, the Denver Nuggets have recently gauged Kenneth Faried’s trade value around the league. The 23-year-old forward, who has two years left on his rookie deal, averaged 11.5 points and 9.2 rebounds in 28 minutes per game last season.
Multiple sources around the league have reported in the last month that Denver has put out targeted feelers on Faried...
Despite standing a diminutive 5-foot-9, there isn't a lot Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson fears in life. In fact, Robinson is probably one of the most fearless players in the NBA, if not all sports, and arguably one of the most confident, too.
During a recent interview with Believe the Hype, Robinson said he believed he could be one of the best cornerbacks in NFL history...
