JaVale McGee dunks all over poor guy at Drew League (VIDEO)

Jul 14, 2013, 12:33 PM EST

JaVale McGee was made for the Drew League — fast-paced pickup basketball with little defense required. The Drew League is the premier pro-am series in Los Angeles and draws a number of NBA players (Jamal Crawford was a highlight on Saturday) and McGee was there. Thriving in an environment where an athletic big who can run the floor will have his way.

Here, he gets out in transition and another player’s effort to stop him isn’t going to work.

We’ll see if Brian Shaw can get the same kind of thing out of McGee with the Nuggets next season — they are going to need him to run the floor and defend. No more Kosta Kufos in front of him, it is all on JaVale next season, for better or worse.

Hat tip to SLAM for posting the video.
