Where will the youth of today “learn the intricacies of making basketball hilarious?” asks The Score’s Trey Kirtby, though he already knows the answer. It seems the Nuggets’ JaVale McGee (above) is scheduled to make an appearance at The National Basketball Academy’s Denver summer camp, which if nothing else, brings to mind the expression, “those who can’t do, teach.” Writes Kirby, “the potential for disaster in this is so great that I am seriously considering shaving my beard, getting one of those hats that is an animal, plunking down $200 and posing as a 15-year-old just so I can see what actually goes on at this thing.”
Will JaVale McGee teach kids how to run the wrong way on offense? Might he tutor them on the fine art of missing dunks from the free throw line? Or the best way to goaltend? Just about the only thing we can rule out is JaVale teaching proper post positioning technique, but everything else is on the table.
