JaVale McGee reacts to missed dunk in Game 1: ‘Even I laughed at that 1!'


With the score all tied up 56-56 at halftime in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Warriors made a change to start the third quarter. 

JaVale McGee started at center and made an instant impact. McGee got the Oracle Arena crowd going with his defense on LeBron James and the Cavs. And then... he did this. 

McGee was wide open for an easy dunk with just under eight minutes left in the third quarter and completely whiffed on a dunk. Twitter blew up and even McGee had fun with his missed dunk. 

As always, games are just more fun with JaVale McGee. The center finished with four points, one block and one rebound in 6:17 of play in the Warriors' 124-114 overtime victory.
