From Punchline to NBA Champion, Javale McGee 'Ready for Whatever' in Free Agency
It's quite a trick to put someone seven-feet tall and 270 pounds with an eight-foot wingspan in a box—particularly one not of their choosing—but that's precisely what happened to JaVale Lindy McGee. "Lazy and crazy," is the tag George Karl, his Denver Nuggets coach, put on him. "Never took the game serious and never really seemed to care about getting better," a league executive said. The nicknames tell the story as well: The Great Adventure. The Big Secret. Along with Doctor Strange and Bum Ass McGee, those special delivery from his No. 1 antagonist, Shaquille O'Neal.
