Howard's back wasn't right so he wasn't leaping.

Bynum had some but not at JaVale's level. I've seen that guy almost catch a lob closer to the top of the backboard. He's elite jumping wise coupled with his wingspan/reach.

Dunks last year
94 - Nance
75 - McGee

Minutes played
1421 - Nance
615 - McGee

Assisted %
.809 Nance
.853 McGee

Assisted
76 Nance
64 McGee

McGee has a crazy amount of dunks considering he played less than half the minutes Nance did. Higher assisted % too.

Plans to start.

Wants to meet Dubs in Finals.

Would work his butt off to be the fastest 7 footer in the league.

"Kuz is a great young guy, slasher, he can shoot the ball, extreme confidence and I love it...he's also from Flint so you know, we breed them out there"



JaVale McGee on joining the Lakers

He sounds intelligent...enough.

Him playing with alot of smart playmakers is gonna get him soo many easy buckets and opps.

I can imagine him and Rondo already runnin some of the same plays he did with AD on alley opps.

I also noticed, when he was in GSW, as soon as a ball handler was driving inside, McGee was chillin in the paint so if the defense collapsed on the ball handler, they just threw it up knowing he was there for the dunk.

Hope Luke installs the same strategy

I am praying McGee repeats his performance of last season he delivered with GSW. We want to be a good defending C and smashing few lobs

4 Reasons why JaVale McGee was a good signing

Quote:
He may be a bit goofy, he may be a bit uncoordinated, but Javale Mcgee should turn out to be a valuable role player for the Los Angeles Lakers.

He’s going to get a lot of alley oop opportunities from Zo, Rondo, and LeBron. I can see him averaging 10/10 this season.
