Two-time NBA champion and the Los Angeles Lakers center, JaVale McGee, is concerned about the tendentious treatment of the bigs by the nowadays NBA.
Speaking about the current situation, the 30-year-old big man said, per ESPN: “It’s extremely hard because it seems like they don’t want us here…They’re trying to get us out of here. The prime example is them taking us off the All-Star ballot. They literally took the whole position off the All-Star ballot. So just think about that”.
During his ten-year career, McGee has averaged 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game, while shooting at 56 percent from the field. This summer McGee signed an one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum. After playing two preseason games, the Lakers’ newcomer leads the team both in points – 16 – and rebounds – 7.5 – per game.
