"Get back on defense!" 

How many times in basketball courts across America is that phrase used, daily? It's the number one crime a player can make. Hot-dogging it. Showboating. Giving the effort on the offensive end and then lazily letting your man get up the floor to score. It's a tenet, it's a principle, it's a commandment of basketball. Get back on defense. 

Well, JaVale McGee made that effort last night. And for the first time in recorded history, a player tried too hard to get back on defense. 



Oh, but wait, it looks even better in GIF form from TruthAboutIt.Net via Bullets Forever.

The video call I also enjoy. "Where... was he?" 

So, hey, JaVale is giving supreme effort here. Do you see how fast he gets back up the court? 


This season is hilarious in so many ways.

JaVale McGee needlessly hustles

The look expression John Wall give McGee is priceless. He's like "Where in the hell is JaVale running to? Get the hell back up here!" What a goof!
