JaVale McGee was the topic of discussion on the NBA on TNT on Tuesday night. Both Shaq & Charles Barkley expressed how much they love JaVale McGee and how much potential he has. I don't think either guy has watched an entire Wizards game ever and are basing this on highlights but...here are the quotes transcribed as best as I could.
Shaq: "One of my favorite big men...I like JaVale McGee...I love JaVale McGee"
Chuck: "I wish he would call/spend some time with a big guy cuz I thought he would be better by now. He's been one of the most talented big guys in the league for the last 2-3 years but his offensive game...like right now if he dunks it that's it...but I would love to see him develop his game because I think he's got a chance to be a terrific player in the league."
Shaq: "He's sort of like an undeveloped Deandre Jordan. They don't really have post game but you know, on the break, you know, offensive rebound, throw him a lob he can go up and catch it."
Chuck: "Yeah but you know what you can't win like that. To be a great player they got to be able to give you the ball in the box, jump hooks, up & unders & things like that"
Then Chuck went on a rant about Kevin McHale & Hakeem and someone suggested since the game is in Atlanta they should go to the Wiz game...
"There ain't no way in Hell I'm going to watch that game" --Chuck on the Hawks/Wiz matchup tomorrow night
