When Javale McGee isn’t battling Michael Wilbon about red carpet or having his baby momma harass me via email, his favorite thing to do is planking.
One problem though.
No one is planking anymore, it is sort of played out now and McGee hasn’t gotten the memo.
The planking craze has died down a little over the past few weeks, but damnit, Javale McGee isn’t done yet. The man who calls himself Pierre is just getting started. And if you’d been wondering when some athlete was going to take things a step too far and plank during an actual sporting event… Well, it didn’t take long.
It happened during an exhibition game in the Philippines, and the craziest part about this video isn’t the planking at the end, but that it comes after Javale dribbles the length of the court for a dunk, then runs the length of the court the other way for a jaw-dropping block. Then he planks.
Great play, but the planking just makes your realize why Javale McGee will always just be Javale McGee and nothing more.
Maybe he went to the club with Cross Colours on later in the evening.
