A wise football coach once said something to the effect of if you tell me I have 3 quarterbacks I will tell you I have none......
I hope that is not the case here and 1 of these 3 solidifies himself as a good starter.
Javale simply wont start until he earns it, which is how it should be, the contract shouldnt get him a starting role, his play should
The good news is that Masai's ability to realize a mistake is far beyond what most managers are capable of, as evident in the Nene trade, if Javale doesnt live up to his contract masai will figure out a way to make it right
McGee, but what matters most is who is playing the majority of the game and that has to be McGee moving forward, you don't get better from not playing lol, not to mention McGee is the only defensive threat of our C's
Kufos is not an NBA starting Center, and McGee's never gonna get good playing 11 minutes off the bench.
We get it George,, you hate JaVale. Again, I'm sure that Ujiri's thrilled with your disdain for the guy that he just signed to a 4 year $44 mil. contract.
Karl's motivational tactics (i.e. "motivating" JaVale by sitting him on the bench) are doing a real number on this team out of the gates this year.
LMFAO I told you guys Koufos would fail epically as a starting center.
I still laugh at last year when koufos got the start in game 1 vs LA. Bynum set NBA records and thoroughly embarrassed Koufos so badly I was thinking Koufos would retire from the game.
Tonight vs Heat:
Koufos: 14 min, 2 pts (1-4), 4 reb. Nugs were -7 with him on the court.
McGee: 23 min, 16 pts (6-9), 9 reb. Nugs were +10 with him on the court.
McGee also going 4-5 from the line tonight.
Kofous either gets rag dolled like he did against Bynum or he stands back and lets his man shoot over him like he did last night.
George Karl seems to be the only one that thinks Kofous is an NBA starting caliber center.
He's actually starting to make me miss Mozgov.
Every time McGee was inserted into the game last night then the Nuggets would go on a run and get to within 1 or 2 points of the Heat. Then he'd be taken out and the Heat would again drive up a lead on us. Happened every time.
Early in the 4th the Nuggets made yet another run with McGee on the floor, getting to within 1 point of the Heat before McGee was again pulled out with 9 minutes remaining and benched the rest of the game. The rest is history.
Once again McGee's +/- was excellent. Higher (by far) last night than any other Nugget.
Sometimes McGee is excellent, but sometimes invisible too.
Mozgov is the best pick for the starting center. He proved it last year against the lakers.
Now what would be interesting to see is twin-towers, instead of Karl's small lineups.
