He might lack playing experience, but the man knows how to work the camera

JaVale McGee is a rare specimen.  We all know this.  You just don't see guys with 7-6 wingspans and 3 point range walking down the street every day.  Of course, we don't know yet if he'll be able to put it all together and become a productive player yet, but from everything that I've been able to deduce from image searching, at least I can feel confident in saying that he'll be one of the more photogenic players in the league.

Just look at him.  You're not going to mess with someone who can scrape the ceiling with his head.  Some might say that he hurt his cred with his showing at the Rookie Photo Shoot, but given what we know now about his photogeniality, I think it's safe to say that he was just trying to show off his ridiculous measurables.  After the jump, you can check out some more evidence of JaVale showing off his size and some other amazing skills.
