The hilarious NBA Memes page has made the Denver Nuggets' JaVale McGee a star by consistently portraying him as a total moron. The Deadspin feature "That's So JaVale" does pretty much the same thing, and given the moment last season when he threw the game ball into the stands on national TV, the site seldom lacks material.
