    These interviews will live forever on RU-clip and the Internet. Maybe these players should look at themselves and ask themselves do I need to take these interviews so damage seriously? It's only freaking basketball. Sometimes it's better to laugh when you feel like crying.

    He actually plays defense and hustles his ass off. McGee is right Luke has to learn how to make in game adjustments and proper personnel substitutions.

    Lol I love how every time the Lakers lose now its because of Walton....Lonzo goes 2-8 for 3's and y'all blame Walton...Ingram still can't muscle his way in the paint so he stays playing iso ball, somehow that's also Walton's fault

    Kid interviewers nowadays - Wow. The man's job is to contest the dunk attempt. You cannot win them all. He has the right attitude, shrug it off and book you butt down the court. Donovan gets props for both athleticism and choosing to go up against a shot blocker like JaVale. Lastly and more importantly, there's far more to this game than this "posterize" moment as JaVale briefly mentions earlier that they clearly didn't make the right adjustments. Keep up the great work ethics JaVale.

    People who dont get dunked on are ones that get out of the way and just give it to them. People like javale should get praised they are out there playing "D". Show me a player not getting dunked on and I will show you one that dont play "D". Never getting dunked on is nothing to be proud of.

    I love how Mcgee has matured hes showing true sportsmanship. But to hold grudges agaisnt Shaq for being on your case is weak. Shaq was on your case cause he seen how great you couldve been if you had this mentality earlier on in your career.

    Real professionals don't think about that, they just go out and play. And as far as I can see, JaVale is a professional and he just made a basketball play that didn't turn out his way, no big deal. It's not like it's the first time he got dunked on.

    I'm from Utah and obviously a Jazz fan and love Donovan and Rudy, but I respect JaVale for the defense, he almost got a block too... well on his hand and ball but still, gotta respect the defensive effort, but I sure did love seeing the dunk and then very next possession the block by Spida 🕷️!

    Great job Javale. Calling out the Lakers coaching staff for not adjusting. It is not Javales job to find that adjustment. That is the coaches job and Luke couldn't do shit. He failed to do what a coach is supposed to do. He got outcoached.

    • Dezmone hooks
      Dezmone hooks 4 months ago

      A Friendly Hobo he always gets out coached. When the Lakers win it’s because of Lebron, Rondo, Zo, or Kuz getting hot or making plays. When they lose it’s typically because Luke wants to run small ball or fails to implement a half court set.
