Video: JaVale McGee’s Epic Struggle for a Triple Double

This isn’t quite as gloriously terrible as teammate Andray Blatche’s desperate attempt for a triple dip, but it comes pretty damn close:

    It’s really too bad he has no one to look-up to on the Wiz. If he had an older veteran center as a mentor, it’d really help. Hopefully he gets traded to a team with some vet leadership so he can really blossom. It’d be a shame for him to get stuck in D.C. his whole career. Real talented kid and tremendously gifted athlete.

    Kevin Mchale isnt as bad as i thought he might be, but i still miss GP on Fan Night. That 1 year run was glorious. “Grim-y”

    when you get 12 blocks, you’re entitled to go fort it.

    that said, somebody should’ve called a few more lobs and a few less isos.

    Wow 12 blocks. When was the last time someone got double digits in blocks?

    I enjoyed watching dude last night.
    With the exception of Dwight Howard, I’ve never seen another center make Derrick Rose think twice about going into the paint.
    But by the third quarter, Rose was still getting in the paint but you could tell by his body language he was really picking and choosing his spot instead of running in full force like he usually does.

    How can u lose that bad when ur center gets 12 blocks?

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    is it me or was there not even ONE block on the highlight?

    @MAX IMO blocks can be an overrated stat… often shots blocked go out of bounds so possession doesn’t change, whereas every steal implies a change of possession. Bill Russell, from what I’ve read, tried to control blocks and either come up with the ball or tap it to a teammate.

    Should McGee change the name on his jersey from McGee to EPIC FAIL? sort of how Pistol Pete rocked the “Pistol” jersey…

  • KC

    Turrible! (in barkley voice)

  • Demigod

    12 Blocks! Jevale gonna be a BEAST. What’s the most blocks C Webb or McHale had ? GTFO

  • underdog

    The Andray Blatche video kills.

  • Krisjanis

    How can you hate if dude gets 12 blocks? Those white guys in the studio who were laughing bout it didn’t collect that many in their careers though. but a great stat-line for JaVale, too damn shame they lost

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    Krisjans, Go Google “Kevin Mchale” and then slap yourself in the face.

    Javale McGee’s career blocks – 326
    Kevin McHale’s career blocks – 1,690
    528 by his third season, when he was at the same point in his career as McGee.
    Yeah, silly McHale.
    What was he thinking?
