JaVale McGee continues to astound, snags ball out of midair for block (video)


If this continues, they might as well give Denver Nuggets big man JaVale McGee his own YouTube channel. Because it sure seems that the talented young man makes these kind of amazing plays on the court with alarming regularity.

During Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Pepsi Center in the Mile-High City, McGee put on an astounding display of athleticism during a play that began with him snatching the ball right out of midair for an incredible shot-block but then adding an impressive dish down on the other end of the court.

The play:

Wow. While he rarely fills up the stat sheet, there is no denying this JaVale McGee kid has some mad skills, man. How about the little scoop-dish to Anthony Randolph. For a big fella, he’s awfully nimble.

Even better for the Nuggets, the team extended its franchise-best winning-streak to 14 games, courtesy of squeaking by with a 101-100 win over the Sixers. Happy times in Denver, indeed.
