Warriors news: JaVale McGee tries to score on high school star Marvin Bagley III and fails miserably
JaVale McGee may not be in mid-season form just yet after once again nailing the Golden State Warriors’ last roster spot for the second consecutive season, but he sure is in Shaqtin’-A-Fool form in L.A.’s popular Drew League.
The 7-footer tried to show off in front of prep star Marvin Bagley III, stringing different crossover moves against his shorter, more-agile defender, failing to make his way to the cup in time on a desperation spin move.

McGee fumbled with the dribble and had a hard time getting past Bagley, whose spry feet kept in front of the Warriors’ center throughout the duration of the shot-clock.
It’s moments like these that make the Drew League shine, allowing centers like McGee try (and fail miserably) at isolations against younger and better-equipped defenders.
Shaquille O’Neal will have some fun with this, without a doubt.
