When JaVale McGee is focused and in the game mentally — and he was against the Lakers Sunday night — few people on the planet could keep him from a rebound and putback dunk.
That includes Kosta Koufos and Andre Miller. Who happen to be McGee’s teammates and were in the way of a putback dunk against the Lakers and ended up in McGee’s poster. McGee finished with 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting on the night. In the second half he completely outplayed Pau Gasol (which a lot of people have been doing lately, but still).
McGee has more nights like this and Karl will give him more run.

NBA All-Star voting is over, and now we have the results. The starters are in, and what’s left is for us to wait until they announce the teams after they are picked in double secret ceremony.
Of course, the NBA did release the full voting results via their PR website this week, and as such there are some head scratchers. My boy Patrick Redford over at Deadspin did an excellent job rounding up some of the players who got exactly one (1) vote from other players.
The gag here is that these guys presumably voted for themselves.
players who got exactly one all-star vote that was definitely them voting for themselves:
– Nerlens Noel – Gerald Green – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Mario Hezonja – Kosta Koufas – Cam Payne – Langston Galloway – Luke Kennard
