Sick. I would love to do it some time. Hopefully the next time I play basketball whenever that is.

Yeah , McGee is insane. Was watching this the other night and made me search his draft stats:

Dude has a 7'6'' wingspan / 9'6.5'' standing reach.

Also 27.5'' SVJ / 32.5'' RVJ at the predraft measurements. He got a 11'9.5'' SVJ touch, LOL  :o

More fun :

I have before once. I pinned it just after it hit glass. Always nice to pin one. :)

Shaq doesn't get the credit he deserves for being an athlete, IMO, and Javale just needs a brain lol!

Don't have a stabilized opinion about McGee, he is only 24 though!

As for shaq , his attitude and media involvement overshadow his athletic career.
But when the dust settles down , what will you remember , his movies and songs and taglines, or this?

Edit:
To get back on track:
I had a goaltending too, but not an official one. Was at shooting around at half-time, i had a 33'' repeatable at the time ( 10'8'' ), attempted and blocked a teammate's 3 pointer.
He had a very shallow shot and the 3 pointer gave me the the time to synchronize. Awesome feeling indeed!
