Take your mind off the Howard talk and listen to what that 17th best center in the NBA wants.

And you know what? I'd give it to him. He's the most entertaining player in the NBA today

No he's not. At all...or even close. Anything higher then 5-6 mill per year and I would ship his *** out. What has he proven to earn that kind of money?

Whats the point of the lockout if we still got dumb players like this that still demand this ridiciculas amount of money and owners stupidly give in?

He's proven that hes 7'1 and isn't a "stiff" with no skills.

You've watched the NBA long enough to know that there is a huge premium on Center's. Espescially ones who are young, mobile, athletic, & are productive getting points, rebounds, and can block shots.

DeAndre Jordan averaged 7 PPG 7 RPG and got $10 Million per year last offseason based on his "size" and "upside". That "upside" has allowed him to average 7 PPG 8 RPG this season.

JaVale McGee is the better player, his numbers improve each season, & some NBA team is going to pay him for his "upside" in hopes he gets a coach who will help develop him.

McGee has a lot of raw talent right now, but his mistakes on the court consistently symbolizes a lack of focus and maturity on his part.

I too want $14 mil a year.

I'm stunned that both I and JaVale want exactly the same amount of monetary compensation per year.

LMAO. This dude isn't worth 14/mil a year. No way in H*LL is he getting that from anybody. Dude just puts up semi-decent numbers because he is on a bad team. If he was on a good team IMO he wouldn't be posting numbers that high. If he was so good and worth 14 mil a year, then don't you think the Wiz would have a semi-decent record this year.

Andrew Bynum got a $14 Million per year extension from the Lakers after his 3rd season having averaged only 13/10/2 in just 35 games.

He was overpaid on the front end in hopes his game would develop on the back end of the contract and now hes definetly worth the the salary hes being paid this season and next season.

The same will happen with Javale McGee, although nobody knows if it'll pay off in the end.

Samuel Dalembert is a poor comparison because JaVale McGee is generally considered to have a very high upside to become an impact player at C. Dalembert didn't have the skills or athletic ability of McGee, and was overpaid because Billy King knows nothing but to overpay role players.

wow, 7'1. By that logic, guys like Shawn Bradly should earn 15 mill+ per year!

The guy is athletic, thats it. No team in their right mind pays a guy that much money because their athletic.

I don't care how big the holes are for centers in this current league or how Jordan got $10 mill. That should actually encourage the owners to put their freaking foot down and say screw you, a player like you is a dime a dozen in this current league. Id rather be dead then pay you that kind of money.

Otherwise eventually in the future, centers that average as you said 7 points and 7 boards will get $15 mill per year. There are only two centers in the league that have earned this kind of money: Dwight Howard, and Andrew Bynum. Both all star starting centers and both playing great.

Exactly.

He has no "big man coach" in Washington to work with him each day like most NBA teams have. The guy who works with the big men in Washington is Don Zierden, a guy who joined the Wizards staff after coaching a WNBA team. How far off would Andrew Bynum be without 1 on 1 coaching from Kareem Abdul-Jabaar? Dwight Howard being coached by Patrick Ewing and working out with Hakeem?

Not to mention there isn't any coach or veterans on that team to create a professional environment for those young players. Its basically like an AAU team out there because the young players are running the show with no direction.

JaVale is a pretty decent player

Especially for legit 7 footer.

That being said, the market definitely won't net him 14 million per. He's going to be very disappointed when he actually hits free agency.

Did you completely overlook the point about him not being a "stiff" or do you simply not understand what that term means? Be honest.

Fact of the matter is that him being 7'1, athletic, mobile, and having "skills" to be effective on offense and defense makes him extremely valuable in the NBA. When you factor in that he just turned 24 and thats why he gets a big deal. Most C's in the NBA can't affect the game on the defensive end the way that JaVale does by blocking shots or changing shots. He puts up a good Rebounding Rate and he has offensive skills outside of just dunking the ball, which people seem to not notice because they dont watch Wizards games.

So many 7'0 footers in the NBA aren't even athletic but also have no ability to do anything on the floor except stand around and pick up fouls. Those guys end up being paid with getting contracts worth the MLE or bigger, but still end up overpaid in basketball circles.








I don't care how big the holes are for centers in this current league or how Jordan got $10 mill. That should actually encourage the owners to put their freaking foot down and say screw you, a player like you is a dime a dozen in this current league. Id rather be dead then pay you that kind of money.
DeAndre Jordan's deal and the rise of the Los Angeles Clippers is one of the reasons why JaVale McGee will get a deal like that.

Without DeAndre Jordan anchoring the C position, although hes not "worth" $10 Million, the Clippers wouldn't be considered a threat moving forward in the Western Conference.

Hes a key part of their "core" with CP3 & Griffin.

If the Clippers win a Championship it will be because DeAndre Jordan made an impact in the Playoffs holding down their defense, grabbing boards, and keeping guys out of the paint. Same thing Tyson Chandler did last year for Dallas and got $14 Million per year despite being 29 years old.







Otherwise eventually in the future, centers that average as you said 7 points and 7 boards will get $15 mill per year. There are only two centers in the league that have earned this kind of money: Dwight Howard, and Andrew Bynum. Both all star starting centers and both playing great.
Dwight Howard was a #1 pick and earned his deal.

However as I pointed out above, Andrew Bynum received a 4/$58 Million Dollar contract after averaging similar numbers to McGee in only 35 games for the Lakers. Thats a small sample size to give a C that large of a contract, but he had the "tools" to become an All Star C in the NBA when he finally put it together. Finally, after several of years of development he is now worth the contract he was given in Year 3 of it.

JaVale McGee has similar "tools" to become an All Star C just like Bynum has become. The difference is that he wasn't drafted into the Lakers where everyone could see his game and talk about how good he could become when he matures and gets his head in the game.

$14 Million is actually realistic if multiple teams are interested in him and force his value up.

Otherwise $10.5 Million is the starting point.

He'll get paid as much as Hibbert and Lopez, just depends on what they get offered.

Clippers are on the rise because THEY ACQUIRED THE BEST POINT GUARD IN THE DAMN LEAGUE! Jordan has absolutely noting to with it. And Caron Butler and Billups in the beginning MIGHT have something to do with it as well. Just MAYBE...

Andrew Bynum was always worth the type of money he signed into, even during that time. The lakers before they acquired Pau were in first place in the West by a pretty big margin and Bynum had a lot to do with that until he got injured in a freak accident. Bynum is playing the way everybody knew he would play when healthy, that's why he earned the money. No, not just earned, but during the time he signed the deal, it was a total steal.

McGee has done nothing for the Wizards, has not shown any flashes that he can be a 20+ and 12+ player (because that's what 14+ mill per year is), all he has shown is that he can play some defense and that he's athletic. Thats it. Not even Roy Hibbert is worth that type of money and he was a damn all star and 50x better then McGee is and will ever be.

But he's not dumb for asking for that much money if Jordan got 10mil for what he did which is less then what McGee is doing right now to me McGee has a lot more upside then Jordan he just needs to get the right coach....how many centers are getting 2.5 blks a game right now

Of course he will ask for that money. I except no less from players like McGee. Thats not the issue (well half anyway). It's the owners and gms that need step up and show just a little pride that just maybe their not worth it. Players like Mcgee can be found in this years draft class for example. I would trade this guy now for a pick and call it day. Draft a center and sign that center for about 80% less thn Mcgees asking price and your all set. In the end, you will show that not only your a smart gm, but a gm/owner that will never give in to these greedy arrogant hacks.

Right coach? I'm not even going to address how ridiculas this myth is.

We already have a crap load of Centers that are shot blockers. If there is one thing that centers are good at in today's league, its shot blocking. Just because someone averages 2.5 blocks does not make him a good defender even, if that were the case, Allen Iverson was the greatest defending PG/SG because of his steals. Andrew Bynum also averages that amount of blocks and does more defense and more on offense then Mcgee ever would but you don't see him crying for more money. Just his agent :p

DeAndre Jordan averaged 7 PPG 7 RPG and got $10 Million per year last offseason based on his "size" and "upside". That "upside" has allowed him to average 7 PPG 8 RPG this season.

JaVale McGee is the better player, his numbers improve each season, & some NBA team is going to pay him for his "upside" in hopes he gets a coach who will help develop him.


He got it based on potential true, but mostly his defensive value. Javale isnt in the same league as him defensively. And the #'s are in DJ's favor though I would agree Javale has more potential.
