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 game. So, he was understandably disappointed on Monday, when McGee was alone on a fast break and decided to provide a dunk that will surely make the top 10 list of most highlight shows. Saunders called it “unacceptable.”
Reminds me of a time when Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp did a crazy off the backboard attempt at a dunk and even though it was maybe the greatest missed dunk ever, George Karl benched them both. I think it was a wicked dunk but so over the top for the situation. His days are numbered in D.C. if he does not shape up. But then again, where would he go? Maybe the Globetrotters? addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fcuzoogle.com%2F2012%2F01%2F18%2Fvideo-javale-mcgees-self-oop-against-houston%2F'; addthis_title = 'Video%3A+JaVale+McGee%26%238217%3Bs+Self-oop+against+Houston'; addthis_pub = '';
