Found March 12, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
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 take a bow. While wasn’t too ridiculous, he still managed to throw in his “JaVale-ness” and make us all laugh. If he would stick to subtle things like this instead of making an absolute fool out of himself, he’d probably be starting instead of coming off the bench.
