JaVale McGee News & Update: The Unexpected Dunk By The Golden State Warrior’s Secret Weapon
As a newly recruit player of the Warriors, JaVale McGee was playing great during their preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers last Saturday night. He proved something to the Warriors of the things he can do if chances are given to him by the team.
Everybody should watch how JaVale McGee executed a dunk as Patrick McCaw passed the ball perfectly towards him. It was an admirable dunk that made most of the audience stand including the Warriors followed by his defensive block against Anthony Brown. He wanted to impress the Warriors by bringing his talent and helping them to get another Championship title, according to CSN Bay Area.
The warriors picked up JaVale McGee since shot blockers Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli were both gone the last offseason. Due to McGees' poor performances as a player, he didn't receive a guaranteed contract last summer. He was not so effective in his early career in Washington and Denver on his defensive role, SF Gate reported.
