JaVale McGee rebounds own airball, obviously called for travelling (video)

I’ll give JaVale McGee the benefit of the doubt here – which he probably doesn’t deserve – and say the ball slipping out of his hands on the shot could happen to anybody.

But most players know to let someone else touch the ball first after an airball, an easy travelling call.

Of course, McGee makes it worse on himself with a minor protest. That wasn’t close to a foul, and the ball was even farther from the rim.
