McGee has never been a stranger for hilarious antics. The seven-footer absent-mindedly tried to inbound the ball to his point guard, Rajon Rondo, without actually being out of bounds. As the highlight says: “you can’t do that!”
Despite his semi-frequent lapses in concentration, McGee is having a strong season in Los Angeles. He has started all 54 games he’s appeared in so far in the 2019-20 season. A good shot-blocker and play finisher, McGee is hovering around his career high in field goal percentage at 64.2 percent with nearly 70 percent of those coming right at the rim.
In advanced metrics, McGee is actually producing a career-high in true shooting percentage with a lofty 65.6 percent.
Despite those gaudy numbers, he must still remember where and when he’s allowed to inbound the ball to his teammates.
