Flint native JaVale McGee, through his insane athletic ability and occasionally equally insane mental lapses, is one of the most entertaining players in the league. In his series looking at every player who played in the NBA last season, Aaron McGuire of Gothic Ginobili wrote this about McGee:
JaVale McGee may not be an easy player to watch, especially if you watch enough basketball to realize how dominant a player of his physique could be if he simply played conventionally. But there’s a lot to be said for the journey a player takes to become a true monster in this league, and it really seems like McGee is aiming not simply to be a conventionally dominant center, but to also be one of the most creative centers of his era. Does it really matter if he is? From a wins and losses standpoint, certainly not. But from an aesthetic perspective, how could we ignore it?
