Interview with Tyson Chandler:
When I watch JaVale McGee, he reminds me of young you. So long and jumping so high. When I see him jump so often, I can't help but think: Save a little of that, JaVale! Do you see that?
When you're young, they say you're young and you're dumb. You can't gain that knowledge except for just playing. There are some Dwight Howards who come in and blossom early and are able to dominate. Then you have guys like myself, and Andrew Bynum, and I think the same thing about JaVale McGee. It's going to take him a while before he truly gets it. But his athletic ability and his just physical capability ... he should be able to change a game. And I definitely think he will.
It's just time and understanding and placing, coaching, guys working with him, before he dominates out there. He has something that you can't teach.
