This absolutely sums up the Washington Wizards season so far. Do yourself a favor and keep your eyes on the Wizard’s JaVale McGee who had a minor lapse in paying attention during Washington’s 111-108 overtime win over the Toronto Raptors. This diagram explains it quite well as JaVale takes off for the other end of the basketball court, while the play was happening behind him. You have to give him extra points for his hustle though.

HE'S THE WIZ
During last night’s Wizards-Raptors game, Washington’s JaVale McGee put up a running hook shot then ran back on defense, even though his team came up with the rebound.
John Wall’s reaction is the best part of the whole sequence.
Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee had an embarrassing moment during the third quarter of Monday night's NBA game in D.C. against the Toronto Raptors. McGee missed a shot and hustled down the court to play defense, but didn't notice that one of his teammates got the offensive rebound.

Dribbling between your legs in the middle of the lane? Check. Throwing up a clumsy hook shot that’s off the mark? Check. Hustling down the court for defense while your team still has the ball? Check. Ending the sequence by falling to the ground on a failed alley-oop? Check. Being the most entertaining player in the NBA for all the wrong reasons? Check.

In case you don't know, the Washington Wizards are a mess. From Flip Saunders getting fired, to JaVale McGee showboating and subsequently getting benched, this team needs a complete overhaul.
Oh and speaking of McGee, he pulled another idiotic, yet hilarious, move on the court.
In a recent game against the Toronto Raptors, McGee got a wee bit confused after he missed a shot...
This is why Javale McGee is who he is. After missing a short runner, McGee hustles back on defense, lowering his head in frustration. Only one problem—the Wizards got the offensive rebound and were ready to re-start the offense. Too bad McGee had already run out of the picture. John Wall’s reaction is utterly priceless. Ahh, the Wizards!

Check out the video: Best part of the video is John Wall’s reaction. The Wizards went on to win the overtime game [...]
So the Wizards had an 18-point third-quarter lead against a last-place team without its leading scorer on Monday night. They won in overtime. Whatever. A win is a win right now.
“A win is a win right now,” interim coach Randy Wittman agreed. “And we are happy,” Wittman said.

Do people compare Javale McGee to DeAndre Jordan? I don’t, but Clippers’ commentators Ralph Lawler and Mike Smith inferred that this was the reason why Jordan felt the need to unleash the fury of hell on McGee and the Wizards. DeAndre finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds in the 107-81 victory, and he accumulated those numbers in absolutely devastating fashion. Watch as...
