Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Nuggets big man JaVale McGee is quirky. From his alter ego of Pierre- which he doesn’t bring out to play anymore but I wouldn’t mind a come back – to his habit of RT himself on Twitter, it’s easy to see that McGee is “different.” How does “different” manifest itself on the court? Well McGee has been a frequent contributor to Shaq’s “Inside the NBA” segment, “Shaqtin a fool” with plays like passing to no one, in-bounding the ball while still, in bounds and more but it turns out there might just be an explanation for all the random behavior. JaVale has ADD, not referred to as ADHD. And, he likes it.
“I have extreme ADD. They tried to put me on Ritalin, but I wouldn’t do it. I just didn’t want to take it. I was young (when it was diagnosed); it was a long time ago. But, yeah, it’s definitely fun having ADD. It’s extremely fun. I’m not boring.”
JaVale continues to grow as a player and absolutely shows bright spots in his game while still managing to entertain with his antics. Most recently he autographed the ball after blocking a shot. I’m sure he’ll live up to that 4-year $44 million contract the Nuggets gave him last summer.
BEST OF MAXIM
JaVale McGee said he has been diagnosed with ADD but chooses not to take medication because having ADD is "extremely fun."

For a team with the NBAs fourth-best record, the Nuggets sure do fly under the radar.But leave it to point guard Ty Lawson to let it be known how good they are.Lawson vows the Nuggets (50-24) can get to the...
The Denver Nuggets have quietly been playing some of the best basketball in the league this season. I say quietly only because the Miami Heat and their winning streak along with other story lines like the trouble the Lakers have been dealing with, the San Antonio Spus shaping up for another championship push, and a few other story lines have really dominated the media.
Andre Iguodala is due $15.9 million next season, but the Nuggets forward is likely to opt out of his contract with Denver after the season. Though it’s unlikely he’ll get that kind of money elsewhere next year, the eight-year-veteran is looking for long-term security, which he can get if he becomes a free agent and signs a multi-year deal.
According to Chris Tomasson, Fox Sports...

The Denver Nuggets recently had an impressive 15 game winning streak of their own, and if not for the Miami Heat’s amazing 27 game winning streak, they probably would have been the darlings of the NBA for a few weeks.
