McGee gets benched because of his showboating/boneheaded plays, FT shooting, and foul trouble, but that doesn't mean he isn't the best option at center for the nuggets.
With all of that said, does per 36 guarantee production? No, especially when you're dealing with small sample sizes. But when you are as limited as we are at the center position, I would rather we play rookies and let them make mistakes, then to keep throwing out limited veterans who have already hit their ceiling.
Vuce also had a high foul rate last year. Now he better in that area, is rebounding better, and has a higher shooting percentage (his numbers look a even better after that 20/20 game). But there were still games last year where he should have been used over the floundering spencer hawes who saw his production drastically drop after he came back from injury.
