One night after he completed what still might be the block of the year, JaVale McGee put up one that could challenge it. In part part just because he was swatting Blake Griffin. Consider it some Dunk Contest payback.
The impressive part of this is really that McGee gets just burned on the pump fake by Chris Kaman, and a lot of nights that would have been it as McGee gave up on the play. But Wednesday night he hustled back and came flying in for the moster block.
McGee is a special athlete, not a lot of bigs in the Association make this block.
