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-to-court for a layup: God bless JaVale McGee. Along with Andrew Bynum, he is just a gift from the NBA gods.
