There, I said it. This guy pisses me off more than any other player on this team, even more than Earl Boykins. He is so incredibly stupid, I can only describe him in Charles Barkley/Bill Walton-style hyperbole. JaVale McGee is the dumbest player in the history of civilization.
I have more faith in my dead dog solving a complex calculus equation than JaVale McGee actually being in the correct spot on the floor at any given moment. Remember when Shaun Livingston got slammed to the floor on a hard pick at the end of the first half? I saw him get up and run over to JaVale screaming. Sam Cassell joined him. On replay, I could clearly see JaVale's man step up to set the pick. It was JaVale's responsibility to alert Livingston. What did JaVale do? Stand all by himself at the top of the key with his head stuck firmly up his ass. He never bothers to pull his head out. Then he gets all defensive when Sam Cassell got in his face. "Look, Sam, I needed to be standing all by myself at the top of the key with my head up my ass on that play! Why are you yelling at me?!"
Remember how the Bobcats kept getting dozens of wide open dunks on fast breaks? Take a wild guess who was responsible for the open guy. Good ol' Lemonhead, trotting up the court like a retarded kid trying to find his short bus. Also, on several occasions he gave up an offensive rebound and a put-back (mostly dunks), because he would rather stand to the side of the basket and try to jump high rather than actually box anyone out.
I've had it with this clown. I don't care how much potential he has on offense, he makes Antawn Jamison look like the defensive player of the decade. I have zero confidence that he will ever get it. Maybe after 10 seasons of NBA play, he might work his way up to being merely a below-average defender, but we should never expect anything more. Trade him, cut him, I don't care. The longer we try to make this joke of a defender work as our center of the future, the longer we waste time.
It's time to cut our losses. Maybe some other GM will offer us a late 1st round pick or something because of all the "potential" JaVale has. Maybe I'll rue the day I wrote this FanPost. Whatever. Just one man's opinion, based on a lot of observation and a very clear gut instinct. I simply do not believe that JaVale will ever play well enough on offense to make up for his terrible defense. Never. He is completely clueless.
