JaVale McGee benched after throwing alley-oop to himself (video)

Wizards big man JaVale McGee was benched Monday for throwing himself an alley-oop in the third quarter of his team’s loss to the Rockets. I’m not sure why it’s so hard for McGee to understand that showboating on a 1-12 team is a bad idea, but he doesn’t seem to get it. “Apparently, if you get a fastbreak & throw it off backboard in the 3rdQ & you’re 1...

Video: Chandler Parsons posterizes JaVale McGee

Chandler Parsons not only dunked on top of JaVale McGee, but he finished the dunk by literally sitting on McGee’s shoulders. This is not the first poster today, but by far one of the nastiest. JaVale McGee is usually the one doing the dunking, but Chandler made sure that JaVale won’t forget what it felt like to have the shoe on the other foot anytime soon. Click here...

Here’s a flashy dunk that got JaVale McGee benched (Video)

  The Washington Bullets Wizards scored 106 points in their loss Monday to the Rockets, but coach Flip Saunders did not like how his team got two of those points. In the third quarter, JaVale McGee was all alone with the ball on a breakaway, so he did what isn’t too surprising from a former runner-up in the slam dunk contest: threw himself the ball off the glass and jammed it...

No, JaVale McGee, You're Not Supposed to Throw Yourself Alley-Oops When Your Team Is 1-11

For what it's worth, I thought this play was pretty sweet at the time, squinting at the court from my seat a thousand rows above. Still, JaVale McGee made an oops when he threw himself an alley-oop off the backboard during yesterday's Wizards-Rockets game. McGee's play was definitely out of line, but the reprimand he's receiving for this is largely...

Video: JaVale McGee’s Self-oop against Houston

When you are about to be 1-12, not much will get the fans out of the seats. But this dunk by JaVale McGee was a good attempt. You can just hear the roar of the crowd? No, not really. Apparently the the Wizards as a team did not appreciate the dunk. But McGee’s coach, Flip Saunders, believes some plays are best saved for those type of competitions, not an actual, competitive NBA...

Coach, McGee self ally-oop disagreement sums up Wizards

As you can see above, in the third quarter of the Wizards latest loss Monday, JaVale McGee decided to showboat a little with the self ally-oop. It pretty much summed up the Wizards — impressive but unnecessarily showy and self-serving, all while the team was losing. Actually, what would have made it the perfect Wizards…

Rockets' Chandler Parsons Dunks On Wizards' JaVale McGee (Video)

In the first quarter of Monday's NBA game in Washington, Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons ran from the three-point line, grabbed an offensive rebound in mid-air and dunked all over Wizards center JaVale McGee. To top things off, after Parsons hung onto the rim to gain his balance, he landed on McGee's shoulders, leaving McGee with a face full of Parsons' crotch...

Video: JaVale McGee with the ally-oop to himself

Make no mistake, the Wizards are terrible, but they still have a couple guys who can make the losing entertaining (at least for a while). One is the guy who should have won the dunk contest last year, JaVale McGee, who had the monster slam you can see above. John Wall also put on a…

JaVale Being JaVale Not Funny at 1-11

We admit that when it comes to encouraging JaVale McGee's “look at me” habits, we’re just as guilty as anyone. But when the Wizards are 1-11, those habits are incredibly ill-advised. During Monday’s 114-106 loss to Houston, JaVale found himself with a wide-open court. Instead of a simple dunk, JaVale tossed the ball off the backboard to himself and then followed it...

Post Sports Live: The NFL Playoffs, Joe Paterno’s interview and the clueless Wizards

Dan Steinberg , LaVar Arrington and Jason Reid joined Jonathan Forsythe on this week’s webcast to preview the NFL conference title games, react to the Joe Paterno’s interview with Sally Jenkins and muse over the lack of awareness from the 1-12 Washington Wizards. Read full article >>

Blake Griffin Posterizes Kris Humphries : JaVale McGee gets dunked on

Last night as the Los Angeles Clippers played host to New Jersey Nets; Kris Humphries rough couple of months just got worst. Humphries has Blake Griffin to thank. In the second quarter, Clippers guard Randy Foye drives the lane and when he gets cut off; he decides to pass the ball to Griffin who is coming down the lane. Griffin receives the pass and dunks with his left...

John Wall, Flip Saunders Unhappy With JaVale McGee’s Dunk

With their record at 1-11 (by far the worst in the League), and trailing the Houston Rockets by six points yesterday, JaVale McGee (naturally) thought it would be a great time to throw down an unecessary showtime dunk. This did not sit well with teammate John Wall and head coach Flip Saunders, who addressed the silly play following the Wizards’ 12th loss of the season. From SB...
