JaVale McGee’s alley-oop: showboating or enthusiasm?
HoopsVibe’s very Quick Call: Showboating or enthusiasm?
This is the debate surrounding the Washington Wizards’ JaVale McGee, who’s off-the-glass alley-oop in the third quarter of a recent game drew much reaction.
Wizards’ coach Flip Saunders thought it was inappropriate, especially since his squad is 1-11 and needs wins not highlights.
For instance, Saunders thought McGee was trying to garner support for a return to the Slam Dunk Contest (you remember McGee’s mom smoching Dr. J, right?). Youngster John Wall and veteran Mo Evans agreed with Saunders that the dunk, while successful, was ill-timed.
Meanwhile McGee justified the play by saying he was simply trying to pump-up the Wizards, and one teammate, Nick Young, agreed.
