Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee could be reunited ... for the Philippines?

Jason Miller-USA TODAY Sports

Oh please let this happen.

There was once an NBA general manager who believed that a frontcourt pairing of JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche would eventually lead his team to prominence. (That GM is still employed, somehow, but that's neither here nor there). A couple years later, following ill-fated captain speeches, feuds at nightclubs and over-eager attempts to get back on defense, the plan failed.

But fear not! The dream is alive and well, thanks to the fine folks from the Philippine National Team:

Gilas Pilipinas has got an extra month of training period for the 2014 FIBA World Cup, and is now looking at NBA players Javale McGee and Andray Blatche to be put in a pool of naturalized players for use in its long-term program.

I can picture it now. McGee, running point, going off a pick and roll with Blatche as three shooters sit in the corners. Team USA, so confused by what they are witnessing, fails to rotate. McGee gets into the lane, looks off Dwight Howard and throws the no-look lob to Blatche ... that sails into the sixth row. Kind of like this.

All that's left is to recruit Nick Young and Mike James and bring the band fully back together. The rest of the world won't know what hit them.
