JaVale McGee memes: Is he new Nuggets star or complete idiot?

In the Nuggets' clobbering of the Lakers last night, JaVale McGee scored just two points after notching 21 in the previous victory. Such is the enigma of McGee, who's got great physical skills but is widely regarded to be a moron -- the star of his own Deadspin feature who recently tossed away his Tuesday game ball on national TV. Can he change his dopey rep? If so, he's got lotsa work to do, as evidenced by this ridiculous NBA Memes page collection. Check it out.
