Video: JaVale McGee Dunks, Blocks, Planks in the Philippines

In that order.

Not many players have the guts to plank in the middle of a game (yeah, it was just an exhibition, but still), but apparently JaVale McGee does. See above for evidence.

    I think, most of the fans in the Phillippines think Javale is a superstar!

  • What?

    very proud of the players for showing fans some love around the globe. Maybe you guys can come to Ottawa. alot closer than asia. this lockout isn’t so bad after all. till nov approaches that is. let’s hope we don’t get there

    This whole planking thing is stupid but gotta admit planking in the middle of a game made me laugh. JaVale is a big kid.

    @Max nah we know who Javale is… but that’s how appreciative Filipino audience/fans are… we know how to make people feel good & have a good time! you should come out here and experience it yourself… and big ups really to Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Derek Fisher, James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Javale Mcgee, and Derrick Williams for putting up a show and givin’ us a taste of NBA basketball… God Bless!

    you should come out of your shell then more often and find out who the Filipinos are really when it comes to basketball. I think most of us are better than your scouts even if we just watch on TV most of the time.

    it was awesome cp3,rose,durant and to some extent Kobe. Coz he seems every bit a true person as he is and now I’m begginning to understand his liking to Pacquiao with relation to his competitiveness.

  • jflash

    In the Philippines, everyone, and I mean everyone (even those who can’t afford TV’s) watches basketball.
