  • Javale McGee is still a free agent, and if you ever wondered what's held him back from being a bona fide starter in the NBA, check out what Coach Nick discovered from a deep dive into the footage. Basic fundamentals, which are EASILY correctable, get in his way all too often, holding him back from being the dunking and rim protecting beast he can be.

      Coach Nick ... Can you do a breakdown on McGee to see if he improved his game after two years with the warrior ??

      Stop making excuses for his poor play & lack of focus... his asthma is not limiting his 3's

      He plays like the star on a high school team that think technique is irrelevant. I've watched him play since day 1 in the NBA and he has always been a disappointed. Even this year, I thought the Warriors would be able to turn him around in a D Jordan, but he can't even start.

          Shaq just picks on him because javale is a fun loving goofy guy. McGee is much better than people give him credit for he's not the first guy to miss a dunk or blow a defensive assignment. A little rough around the edges but under the right tutelage dude is gonna blow up. Watch what happens at the Lakers guaranteed.

            Shaq would be criticizing his Lakers in order to criticize McGee.

                He needs Alexander Technique. Look it up. It works wonders! When I started doing it, it made a huge difference in my ability to play the violin and my first step on a basketball court, as well as my shooting.

                          Shaq is just an old uncle tom doing what he's told to do. When the network says jump, he says "how high." When the network says pick on Javale he says, "yass massa."
