McGee says Lakers will be ‘one of the most fun teams ever’

JaVale McGee can't contain his excitement about his first season with the Lakers.

It remains to be seen how much success the LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers have on the court next season but one of the newest members of the team knows this:

“It’s going to be one of the most fun teams ever.”

So says JaVale McGee, late of the Golden State Warriors, whom Los Angeles signed July 21 as a free agent.

McGee, who won two NBA championship rings with Golden State the last two seasons, told Arash Markazi of ESPN he’s very much excited about the upcoming season.

“Man, it’s going to be amazing,” McGee said through a big smile. “You got so many personalities in this locker room, but I feel likes it’s all going to mesh together and it’s going to be one of the most fun teams ever.”

The Lakers, who had previously also signed Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson, added Michael Beasley this week, as well.

“He’s going to have a huge impact on the team,” McGee said of the oft-traveled Beasley, who played last season with the New York Knicks. “He’s a long guy and a pure scorer and he’s a great guy.

“I’m actually good friends with Michael Beasley and the fact that he’s coming now, this season is going to be amazing.”
