JaVale McGee gets benched more than a high school showboat who laughs in the face of his coach. Professional athletes getting benched is pretty rare in general, but McGee has already pulled it off twice this season — with two separate head coaches. You may remember earlier in the year when he was benched for throwing an alley-oop to himself. The video you see above, which features McGee goaltending a ball with authority on Wednesday night against the Kings, resulted in another benching.
“I think Javale’s coming out,” announcer Phil Chenier said as the Washington Post pointed out. Head coach Randy Wittman could be seen scrambling to find someone to put into the game at that point.
There are players in the NBA on horrible teams that just can’t seem to get it. McGee is the head of that association.Google+
