We already talked about JaVale McGee's tragic bite on a ball fake this morning, so I figured that in the interest of equal time, we should praise JaVale when he does something good as well. So I'd like to direct your attention to this enormous block that he had last night on Clippers' star Blake Griffin.â†µ
Maybe this is a little retribution for the Dunk Contest that McGee lost to Blake Griffin on this very same court.And he didn't even need to jump over a car to make it impressive.â†µ
This is the kind of block that we have grown accustomed to seeing McGee make, and probably the reason he felt like he needed to bite on that Eric Gordon pump fake late in the game. He's like the game of golf; maddeningly frustrating for most of the time, but every once in a while, he'll give you one of these types of plays that keeps you coming back for more.
