Video: JaVale McGee with the best block this season

JaVale McGee Wizards

Usually we like the dramatic stuff, the blocked shot that sends the ball four rows deep and is punctuated by a scream.

Coaches, they don’t like that as much, because now the other team just takes the ball out of bounds. They talk about how old-timers like Celtics legend Bill Russell blocked shots but directed it back to teammates. Keep the ball in bounds.

Or, just grab it. Rip it out of their hands. Like Washington’s JaVale McGee did to Portland’s Wesley Mathews Tuesday. This was the best block I’ve seen this season.
