FYI McGee averaged 12/9 with 2.5 blocks as a starter with the Wizards, not playing 3rd string behind the legendary Koufos and Mozgov.

If he gives us 20 good minutes im ok with that - doesnt matter if he starts or not

Your right. We should have given him 4 million more per year to play half the season.

Exactly. The difference in the quality and professionalism in the two franchises is huge. Good change in scenery for javale - worked well last year and so far this summer he is working his ass off.

The only way Javalee McGee breaks out is if he joins the al qaeda and that would be more like "exploding" out.

For the record i don't hate McGee, i hate ignorant fans who think he will suddenly transform after leaving the Wizards. Sure didn't work that way for Arenas or Butler or Jamison or Haywood or Hughes.

Up until Feb i was undecided on whether to resign McGee. He had plenty of big games for the Wizards and centers are hard to find. However a few things became apparent at the same time.

First of all McGee has two major flaws in his game(soft and clueless)that simply aren't going to change. His lack of IQ doesn't hurt much on offense but it is a killer on defense. Whenever he has to make a quick decision defensively it is trouble.

He does have a legitimately good hook shot and was developing a decent drop step but his lack of a jumper and poor foul shooting limit his scoring.

Also in Feb i began to realize that Seraphin could easily be a better player than McGee, if he isn't already. He is already a far better defender and can shoot a polished jump hook with either hand, making McGee expendable. Seraphin went off after the trade and he can play good man D on anyone. The only real advantage McGee has on him is rebounding.

Denver fans will be sick when they see this guy starting and the opposing team running one pick and roll after another for layups.

Karl seemed to have him playing pretty disciplined.
I watched him live once and he seemed a different player.
Not saying he will become a star, but my post stands:
He played better as time went on at Denver.

I agree with your sentiments on Seraphin. Which leads me to ask why they took on Oak and Nene, and didnt rebuild with young guys.
To keep John Wall happy?

Geez sorry. Just trying to give some constructive criticism.

I wasn't offended by the joke. Just wanted you to put a little more effort into it.

Look at that - we agree on two things. I also do not hate McGee and I also hate ignorant fans.

Whether seraphin is better than McGee or not has no barring on this discussion. Now if you want to change the topic to "reasons why Washington traded mcgee" we can do that
