JaVale McGee remains the NBA worldwide leader in magnificent blunders. During the third quarter of the Denver Nuggets’ game against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, McGee grabbed a loose ball, dribbled behind his back, and attempted to lead a fast break. The only problem is he began losing control of the rock around midcourt and, as he was falling, he chucked the ball over the basket. I literally could not stop laughing after seeing that play. Just think about what’s going in that dude’s head. When most sane people are thinking about passing the ball to a teammate in an emergency moment, McGee aims for 10 feet over the basket.
“Oh I’m falling, better heave the ball up!”
Like Deadspin says, that’s so JaVale.
The funny thing about JaVale is that this is just part of who he is. He was actually 9-9 for 20 points and 8 rebounds in Denver’s road win and was one of the team’s top players. As our friend Matt Moore points out, he even had a highlight in the first quarter where he went court-...

In the last couple of years, Nuggets forward JaVale McGee has provided us with many laughs and during Friday night's Nuggets/Pacers game, he provided us with another JaVale moment.After Mr. McGee collects the rebound, a behind-the-back move turned into a terrible fast break which caused JaVale to throw the pass into the third row.To top it all off, he took another Nuggets player...
JaVale McGee is the source of a ton of frustration coupled with endless giggles with some of the moves he makes on the court. For an example, check out two plays from Nuggets vs. Pacers on Friday night. In one play we watch JaVale attempt to dish a behind the back pass. But during [...]
This is really painful to watch. You knew as soon as he went behind-the-back and the ball got a little too far ahead of him that something was going to horribly wrong. He tries to corral it but he gets off-balance and tries to throw a pass to his Denver Nuggets teammate Kenneth Faried. Needless to say, Faried had zero chance at catching that pass. Hopefully next time McGee...

Looking for the dunk of Friday night in the NBA?Then you need to check out this amazing one-handed stuff that Nuggets forward JaVale McGee decided to throw down on Pacers back-up center Ian Mahinmi:
Denver's Andre Miller brought back a blast from the past Friday night.
The 36-year-old backup guard scored eight of his 15 points during a 10-0 run in the final three minutes, leading the Nuggets past the Indiana Pacers 92-89.
Miller had a hand in all of the points, also getting an assist on JaVale McGee's dunk during the decisive spurt.
McGee dominated the first half...
Well, I had an awfully tough decision to make today. Between Andre Iguodala and Caron Butler, it was almost a tossup. What ultimately swung my vote in favor of Iguodala is the last replay angle in the video below. As you watch, notice how far Iggy has to reach in order to dunk the ball as he’s falling to the floor. We’re talking about a real degree of difficulty here...
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Denver Nuggets were struggling, looking to get a jump-start somehow against an Indiana Pacers team that had all the momentum in its favor. No need to worry, veteran Andre Miller was there to bail them out. Miller scored six points during an 8-0 Nuggets run late in the fourth quarter to help them beat the Pacers 92-89 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday. ...

Justin is back from assignment this week with Peter for some NBA and Denver Nuggets talk. This week they talk about the Nuggets 2-1 week and whether or not this is a playoff team, Peter’s first perfect prediction week and Kobe Bryant reached a historic milestone this week and his legacy among the all-time-greats is discussed.
The Indiana Pacers appeared to have momentum heading into their showdown with the Denver Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it's disappointing to see them crumple down the stretch and hand the Nuggets a 92-89 victory.
I had hoped for JaVale McGee to score some baskets for the Pacers but instead he dominated Roy Hibbert, who was kept to 10 and 9 on 3-10 shooting (though...
