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. See, McGee assumed the Raps secured the rebound but little did he know, his team grabbed the board but already was running towards the opposite end of the court.
Check out the hilarity and especially keep an eye on McGee as he is giving his all to head down the court while John Wall looks so confused. Also, seeing JaVale come back to join his team is just as hilarious.
BEST OF MAXIM
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. That left McGee looking pretty silly once he turned around to play defense and realized...
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.
God bless you, JaVale McGee...
We've seen some pretty strange clips so far this 2012 NBA season but this play featuring Wizards center JaVale McGee might be one of the funniest.The Wizards played the Raptors last night and McGee in the second quarter misses a simple hook shot.Washington was able to retain possession but JaVale didn't realize that and ran down court:
JaVale McGee attracted attention for the wrong reasons this week, with his mad dash to get back on defense against Toronto — while the Wizards still had the ball — becoming an unfortunate Internet sensation.

Throughout the community of Wizards fans, there is not a more polarizing player then JaVale McGee. There are supporters who believe McGee is a potential all-star and think Washington should do what they can to keep him, and then there are those who believe he has no basketball IQ and should be on the next flight out of DC. No one player elicits such a broad range of opinion when...
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...
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!
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.
