JaVale McGee May Not Start for the Denver Nuggets


According to Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl, JaVale McGee could be turned into a $44 million sixth man. Karl is far more concerned about finding advantageous matchups, rather than worrying about who starts. From the Denver Post: “Now, right away, George Karl thinks the whole idea of a ‘starter’ is overrated – for the Nuggets coach, it’s all about getting the right matchups on the court. Who cares who’s on the floor together for the first five minutes (quite often, it isn’t the same five on the floor in the final five minutes)? And so, center JaVale McGee might not start for Denver. ‘Training camp is going to tell me who plays — my idea right now is (Timofey) Mozgov would start with (power forward Kenneth) Faried and JaVale would stay with (reserve point guard) Andre Miller,’ Karl said. ‘But again, I don’t give a (darn) about starting lineups, and you guys are already stirring the pot. It’s all about how many minutes you play, who you play with, how well you play and how we play (when you’re on the court).’”

    Well considering Timofey Mozgov was actually very good per minute this isn’t that surprising…….and JaVale was actually really good for them last year. So there is that, despite all of the intelligence jokes.

    whats wrong with you? you 1994 bitchhhh

    Nothing wrong with some pretty ladies

    Per 36 mins:
    Mozgov: 12-9-2
    McGee: 18-10-2.7
    There’s no question to who the better Center is.
    Karl has a point though. If McGee provides more off the bench with his energy and hustle, and Mozgov does better setting the pace to start the game, then that’s the way it should be. McGee would probably not be fond of the idea though. If they can get him on board this could pan out well for the Superstarless Nuggets.

    J.R. Smith wasn’t okay with that role….doubt Javelle is mature enough to be…I hope he is though because I think Denver has got a real chance to be a top 5 team

    never know..6th man!

  • danpowers

    i could be wrong but i dont see that coming. mcgee has talent no doubt. im just not so sure if he already has the maturity to embrace that role instead of taking falling out of the starting 5 as a downgrading. especially after all the mockery he had to go through

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    maybe he has ADD

  • danpowers
