JaVale McGee Gets Creative with No-Look Oop from Ty Lawson

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistJanuary 16, 2013

As the Denver Nuggets won an overtime battle with the Portland Trail Blazers, 115-111, JaVale McGee went completely alley-oop crazy.

Of course, the best of the bunch was his ridiculous, one-eyed, backhanded, mid-air reception from Ty Lawson with the game tied at 109 in overtime. It was so nonchalant that it seemed like he thought that they were just warming up.

The Internet reacted accordingly.

Ok, what?

That was so JaVale.

And my personal favorite:

If no one scores again in this game I'm pretty sure JaVale McGee will have completed the first ever game-winning backhanded alley-oop dunk.

Unfortunately, there were a few more buckets, as Denver was able to feed off of that big play, run the Trail Blazers down and end up with a big home win.

Of course, that wasn't the only big 'oop of the night coming at the hands of JaVale. This monster jam from the first quarter was just as gratifying.

He may have actually caught that one behind the backboard before bringing it back in play and scoring what should only be referred to as two McGee Points.

Whether it is Good JaVale (that last alley-oop finish) or Bad JaVale, you will watch him and you will be entertained.

McGee may have his many, many faults, but boy, is he fun to watch.
