JaVale McGee chimes in on if Lakers can beat Warriors: 'It's not going to be easy'

With gold teeth, three braids coming out of the back of his head and rim-rattling dunks, JaVale McGee brough instant excitement to the Warriors. 

The McGee era is over now, but Warriors fans will still see plenty of him. After two years with the Warriors, McGee is teaming up with LeBron James and the Lakers. 

The Lakers should be considerably better than their 35-47 record from this past season. Still, McGee knows how hard it will be for them to take down the Warriors. 

For the past two seasons, the Warriors were represented by four players -- Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green -- at the All-Star Game. This offseason, they added a fifth in All-Star DeMarcus Cousins. 

Good luck, L.A.

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
