JaVale McGee Is Not Having A Good Time

Poor JaVale McGee. Here he is, playing the first playoff game of his four-year NBA career, and he has to go against Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. It has to be frustrating for him, knowing that there isn't very much he can do to stop their block party.

Case in point:

Yup, that's a missed putback and an F-bomb. Players curse all the time -- hell, Kobe Bryant got caught on camera earlier in this game -- but this one clearly resulted from a build-up of frustration.

McGee is trying. He really is. His Denver Nuggets teammates are trying too. The problem is that none of them are Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, and that's starting to take its toll on everyone.
