Suns’ JaVale McGee reacts to huge poster dunk from Warriors forward Juan Toscano-Anderson
The Golden State Warriors bounced back in a huge way against the Phoenix Suns, getting revenge for their earlier defeat. The highlight of the game didn’t come from Stephen Curry, though. It came from Juan Toscano-Anderson, who absolutely annihilated Suns center JaVale McGee with a vicious dunk that will definitely go on Top 10 dunks by the end of the year.
After the game, McGee, a member of some of the Warriors’ championship teams, praised Toscano-Anderson for the dunk. He tweeted out:
“Congrats young fella ill sign it for you!”

McGee’s tweet was a quote retweet of a portion of the Warriors’ postgame presser. In it, Juan Toscano-Anderson said that his dunk over McGee was the best dunk of his career, as it was over a seven-footer in an NBA game. He also alluded to hanging up a poster of this dunk on his mom’s house, which is what prompted McGee to tweet this out.
Juan Toscano-Anderson has been stellar for this Golden State Warriors squad despite playing limited minutes. Earlier in the season, he admitted that the lack of playing time affected his mental, though he immediately said it was for the team’s best interests. Props to him for bouncing back and proving his worth to the team despite not being assured of any playing time.
As for McGee, well, getting posterized is part of the job description for him. Warriors fans surely know this: he was the starting center for two of the Warriors’ recent championships. He’s blocked multiple shots in his career, and one poster dunk means nothing if it means altering ten more in return. It’s nice to see that he’s a good sport about it, too!
