Video: JaVale McGee Preparing for the Dunk Contest

CSN Washington brings us footage of JaVale practicing a few of his dunks for the big event, including one where he grabs a piece of paper with his teeth prior to dunking. Hmmm:

    i have no faith at all in him

    Utter garbage

  • Brown14

    He’s too long to make anything look impressive. He barely has to leave the floor to dunk. However if he can pull off a variety of free thow dunk line dunks he may be ok. Not that he’ll win tho, cause its a fan vote and there’s no way Blake is losing that…

    I don’t know if I should feel bad or relieved that the video isn’t working for me.

    eboy, the footage actually isnt bad. nothing eye-popping, but still good

  • Mr McOvaChicken

    I like this guy. He ‘s still a pup but gots a great attitude , nice dunks & works hard + HE’s got a Scottish sounding name so you know he got warrior in him. :-) Hope JaV gets second place. He’l be a force in the near future. One !!

    at least dude is trying. couldn’t say the same for shannon brown.

  • toinefan88

    nothing unexpected there. brown is right about the ft line dunks. he’s gonna need to pull atleast one off to have a chance at competing.


    y isn’t this video working?

  • fruizm

    i like this guy….i think hes really trying….but hes gonna faiiiiil!

  • Cizzo

    I like the paper-biting dunk but he has to do something a little more flashy to go with it.

  • youngmuggsy

    I know it’s Unrelated to McGee but why is Griffins dunk coach Kenny Smith and Jennings is Darryl Dawkins? What does dunk coach even mean?

    I hope he’s just giving peak at his abilities and not the actual dunks he’ll be attempting. I like JaVale and think he’ll be a good runner-up to Blake.

    crazy athletic, that cuff off vertical was sick…was good with all the hate??

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Free throw line dunk plz.

  • RinaldsNR6

    It will be quiet surprising to see Mcgee make the FT dunk, but i think he will be in finals with the Griffin and make the FT dunk!

  • Ansonpanson

    i hate that he can 360 so effortlessly…

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    Larry Nance dunks.

  • http://slamonline.com kobehater

    mcgee sucks…. at everything. KOBE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My favorite part about dunk contest preparation videos is the players in the background actually working on their game and getting shots up.

    link not working

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    Co-sign Philosopher. This is rubbish.

  • robb

    The dude just has to jump like 2 inches to dunk. Yaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn.

  • Mr McOvaChicken

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ Yo mommas rubbish, yaaawn, but im not complaining. @yougmugsy it means Griffin is definitely going to win, Thats what it means.

  • Yesse

    He is too tall, but the 3rd dunk was kinda cool and creative. He is taller than Dwight and if i’m right he doesn’t jump as high as Dwight, but atleast he is trying unlike Shannon.

  • tavoris

    I’m feeling a little Chris “Birdman” Anderson deja vu

  • http://csnwashington.com SSalazar

    Here’s the link to the JaVale McGee dunk video working correctly… if he does the teeth one with a $100 dollar bill, he wins.


  • Justin

    The fact that he only has to jump a tiny bit will hurt him I think. It’s like how Shawn Kemp kind of got shafter before because he didn’t have to stay up in the air so long to make his dunks even though Kemp was a very good jumper. At least with Dwight, for a guy his size he also has mad hops and jumped as high as he could when doing his dunks. Good comparison with Larry Nance Philosopher
