GIF: JaVale McGee Launches Game Ball Into Orbit

JaVale McGee led the Nuggets to a Game 5 win in L.A. over the Lakers, staving off elimination for at least another two days and giving Denver the opportunity to send it to seven back at home. Then, he met Craig Sager for an uncomfortable post-game talk.

After that, he launched the game ball into orbit.

"Good toss, Vale!" says man in tailored gray suit, who then offers a buttslap.

Technically speaking, throwing the ball into the stands is worth an automatic ejection. It's unclear as to whether that rule will extend to a post-game celebration and also whether NBA law applies to players born on other planets. There may be some sort of diplomatic immunity involved.
