VIDEO: Nuggets’ JaVale McGee flexes footwork for massive one-hand flush
JaVale McGee hasn’t been with the Denver Nuggets for very long, but he seems to have already learned a thing or two from Nikola Jokic. McGee busted out his very impressive footwork on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.
Here’s a look at McGee flexing his footwork in this heads up play for the Nuggets (h/t SLAM on Twitter):

McGee may not be the best big man in the NBA right now (that title probably belongs to his teammate) but there’s no denying that he’s one of the most athletic. At 33, the 7-foot center is still quick and agile, and the way he effortlessly threw down this no-look dunk is truly quite impressive.
JaVale hasn’t done much for his new team since arriving in a mid-season trade. In 10 games played for the Nuggets, he is currently averaging 4.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in just 10.0 minutes off the bench.
McGee is an energy guy, though. He usually serves as a spark for the second unit, and even if he’s not on the court, he’s been known to be quite an influential character on the bench. Oh, and let’s not forget that JaVale McGee is a three-time NBA champion. Could his second stint in Denver result in his fourth chip?
