JaVale McGee literally throws it down on the Pacers (VIDEO)

Dec 7, 2012, 9:54 PM EDT

The leaping ability of JaVale McGee has been well-documented, yet he gave us another example of his skill in this department on Friday night against the Pacers.

McGee gets the ball on the wing, and after a single dribble, elevates and throws it down over Ian Mahinmi — literally. Afterward, he celebrates by … shoveling imaginary food into his mouth? JaVale being JaVale, I suppose.

This was not a dunk by any definition. But given the elevation and distance from the hoop, it might have been even more impressive.
