JaVale McGee of the Phoenix Suns has played in the NBA for 14 seasons now and has been a part of eight different teams including the Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks, and Los Angeles Lakers.
That has accumulated him a lot of success and three Finals victories.
However, the work he’s currently doing with the Suns is getting a lot of attention.

McGee was downright powerful on Monday night in Game 1 against the Mavericks.
While he walked away from the game with only 4 points, he did have one monstrous steal and got the crowd on its feet.
It was a smooth, exciting play from the big man and once again showed how deep Phoenix’s roster is.
There have been a few times in McGee’s career when he was the butt of the joke.
In fact, he’s probably been on Shaqtin’ A Fool more than any other NBA player.
However, you can’t deny that the guy can ball.
His career average is 8 points and 5.3 rebounds in 821 regular-season games.
And those three championship rings aren’t given out to just anyone.
McGee on the Suns could provide a lot of help in the weeks ahead.
He will always come off the bench but, when he does, he could perhaps produce a few plays like the steal from Monday night.
One of the many reasons why Phoenix is so great is because they have a seemingly endless bench that is always ready to do damage to opponents.
McGee is just another example of that.
