Anonymous Cavs Player Says JaVale McGee Isn’t ‘Smart Enough’ To Play In The NBA Finals
JaVale McGee has played extremely well this season for the Golden State Warriors but many people still perceive him as an awkward player who doesn’t have a high basketball IQ.
One Cavs player in particular went on record to say JaVale isn’t “smart enough” to play in this NBA finals series.
Per the Mercury News (via ESPN):
During ESPN’s The Basketball Analogy Show on Tuesday, [Dave] McMenamin said a Cavaliers player “postulated to me that he doesn’t even think McGee’s gonna be able to get on the court or certainly not stay on the court because he doesn’t think he’s quote, unquote ‘smart enough’ to be able to play in this series.”
While JaVale certainly does have a reputation for being an oaf he’s fit in well with the Warriors and is certainly going to be a major factor for the team in the upcoming Finals.
There’s an ongoing debate on the Internet about the identity of the anonymous Cavs player. Several people think it’S Richard Jefferson. Others think it’s J.R. Smith. Let us know who you suspect.
