    Does anyone else hate the Koufas starting? Either start Mcgee or Mozov and have Koufas play sparingly, yet effective, limited minutes.

    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.

    I have been impressed with McGee of late. He has been fairly consistent. He does take some ill advised shot but his presence on D makes opponents hesitate to drive.

    Yes, he goes for blocks and sometimes gets out of position, but as you said, at least he is trying. And as you have pointed out he has been leading our bigs in +/- recently.

    If you are not going to start him, he should be clearly getting the most minutes out of our three C's.

    I'm starting to think Mozgov would be a better choice than Koufus. But I sure would like to see McGee get the start sooner rather than later. Give the guy a chance with the starters and let's see what happens.

    McGee is clearly the best center on the team. He should be starting and Mozzy and Kofous should be split the back up minutes.

    yes but if Karl isn't ready to start Mcgee for some idiotic reason then I think Moz should get it. Koufas can do good in short minutes. Moz is way better defensively and has a nice shot around the foul line area.

    One purpose to have Mcgee out there is to disrupt opponents drive. He protects the paint. Plain and simple. That is why he SHOULD pair him with a rebounder in Faried. It makes perfect sense. Karl love +/- yet he is hesitant to play Mcgee more. Karl really needs to change his rotations if we are going to survive these 24 games at just .500.
