Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee is the gift that keeps on giving.

In the last 18 months, McGee has gotten into a bar fight with a teammate on Christmas Eve, planked on an airport's moving walkway, sold out his side during a billion dollar labor negotiation, gotten benched for throwing an alley-oop to himself, had his mother refer to him as "the future of the NBA" while she slammed former Wizards coach Flip Saunders, and ran completely the wrong way to play defense while his team still had the ball.

Here's the latest entry in the "Crazy Stuff That Only JaVale McGee Would Do" collection. Box sets available on DVD or VHS.

During the second half of a close Wednesday night game against Sacramento, McGee decided to goaltend a shot by Kings guard Francisco Garcia deep into the stands well after the attempt had reached its pinnacle. The result was akin to a volleyball serve as the ball went flying way, way over and above the Wizards bench. A free souvenir for a lucky fan. Wizards coach Randy Wittman immediately pulled McGee from the game for the action. 

Here's the video of Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee's volleyball goaltending and benching via YouTube user johnctownsend.

As a former Vancouver grizzlies fan, and a current Raptors 'supporter', and its been really, really tough.  For real.

But I cannot complain, because the Wiz r an embarassment to basketball at any level.
