JaVale McGee has released a bunch of basketball instructional videos

Last night, right before the Lakers game, JaVale McGee posted this message on his Twitter account.

Just got some great news earlier today.... Tell y'all l8r ... Time to get ready for this game and I'm listening to garota de ipanemaless than a minute ago via Twitterrific


Apparently, this is that great news.  McGee has apparently partnered with ProTips, a online venture that provides sports training tips from the world's best athletes.  Current hoops clients include Taj Gibson and Dickey Simpkins, with Jared Dudley, Will Bynum, Mo Williams, Paul George, Gordon Hayward and Jon Scheyer listed as "coming soon."  It's basically a bunch of training videos and interviews of McGee teaching people basketball fundamentals.  Part of the proceeds go to the Child Neurology Foundation, so it's for a good cause.

That said, I'm sure plenty of you will get in your zingers about the idea of JaVale McGee teaching fundamentals to a wide audience.  The first preview video, ironically enough, is about passing, featuring McGee explaining to viewers the difference between a "lollygagging pass" and a "chest pass."  Snark away if you want.
