In an interview with Chris McGee of Spectrum SportsNet, the Los Angeles Lakers big man JaVale McGee, who signed to a two-year, $8.2 million deal with a player option this offseason, says his conditioning has him feeling good:
“I’ve been working on the same things. Just getting strong, staying strong, getting in my best shape and best conditioning. Making sure that I can run the floor, rim run, block shots and be a defensive presence like I’ve been. I’ve been working on my shot a little bit, but with the guys we have, the shooters, we have, I’m sure that’s not going to be one of the useful parts of my game,” McGee said.
This past season, the 31-year-old averaged 12.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 0.7 assists per game.
