GSW Center: 7’0, 270 lbs; 10th year, Nevada

NBA Role: athletic pivot • Hybrid 

There are two sides to JaVale McGee: Shaqtin’ A Fool legend and productive, athletic pivot; last season, JaVale re-established himself as one of the league’s most unique covers at the five; uncanny performer when motivated & utilized correctly – great shot-blocking threat when healthy, McGee’s a quick jumper w/ long limbs – alters looks by ‘staying big’; doesn’t get buckets on the block too often but finishes off roll catches, oops, clean ups & the occasional drive – takes giant strides before throwing up hooks and short runners; you never know which JaVale you’re gonna get – bigger wild card than Charlie Kelly – exceeded expectations w/ the Dubs

Signature Move: giant strides, soft hook
