    Default Is Mcgee worth 10mil a year now?

    Ok so now that Denver is out of the playoff and we got to see that Mcgee could actually be a good player, do you guys think he is going to get 10mil a year? here is Mannix comments on this:

    Chris Mannix ‏ @ChrisMannixSI
    The who will give JaVale McGee $10 mill per year debate starts in 3...2...1...
    And also, could a duo of Hibbert and Mcgee work?

    The Nuggets will give McGee five-years, $50 million and immediately amnesty him.

    I know his athleticism is tantalizing... but McGee doesn't seem to "get it" to me and I don't know that he ever will. I'll happily watch mediocre teams have a bidding war and overpay him, even if we lost Hibbert. You can't give $10M+ per year to guys that don't understand how to play.

    Someone will probably pay him more than he's worth, but I'll be surprised if it's $10 mil. He played well, sure, but I think teams will have to see more from him on a consistent basis (at least for a full season) before anyone goes nuts.

    The nuggets think he is underdeveloped because he was on a bad team and can fix him. MAX!

    It would be depressing if the heat could offer someone another max contract.

    I've watched him a lot since the trade. He should be further along then he is right now and I don't think the old excuse that centers take longer to develop excuses everything with McGee. I see McGee showing the same flashes of promise 2 years from now that he is now but still not getting it. Low basketball IQ guy with a lot of physical gifts. Or possibly a low IQ guy with a lot of physical gifts.
    I think he's going to be paid in the 10 mil range, something like the clippers paid Jordan which was overpaying.
    No way does he get a max deal.
    If the Nuggets pay him 10 mil or more then moving Nene was just a bad trade. I'd rather pay overpay a fundamentally sound Nene 13 mil, then to pay overpay McGee at 10 mil. I will concede that his ceiling is higher then Nene's but I don't think he'll ever be as good.

    I would not touch this guy after I saw something in the LAL-DEN 7th game. Mcgee made a move to the basket and put up a baby hook, the ball was on top of the rim and it was 50/50 that it woudl go in or pop out. Timothy Mosgov tipped it in but the refs called interference and did not give the basket to Denver. You should have seen Mcgee then, he was throwing a temper tantrum in general and to Mosgove in particular. He was shaking his head, staring Mosgove donw, etc. Mosgov ran down the court and tried to tap him on the back, kind of liek "My bad" but this clown (Mcgee) would have no part of it. He was still yelling at Mosgov. This kind of behavior is loathsome and he will never fit into a team concept. For me this is the most important thing in basket ball (Look at Bball's signature which has a quote from John Wooden regarding team players)

    Probably the worst and dumbest basketball player in the league. Shows how far the NBA has fallen when players like him get big contracts and are considered "solid".

    If you are Sacremento or Denver or LAC then yes. For the other 27 teams who won't pay for a head case, no.

    Yep I remember when the league refused to give head cases like Sprewell or Rodman a huge contract, those were the days, now the NBA has fallen so far.............

    yes, with the serious lack of good centers in the league, mcgee with easily get $10M/yr. probably more with his nice showing vs LAL.

    yes it could work out. but with the salary cap, it would be an insane waste of cap space. much better to spend some of theat cap space on a PF/C type that can play 30 mpg. mcgee will only play 15mpg.

    It certainly is crazy when guys, purely on the basis of their genetics, can get a contract paying them 8 figures in a single year. Bender looks like Larry Bird compared to McGee...

    How many DPOY's, All-Star games, All-NBA teams, and All-Defensive teams were those two apart of again? Let me break it down for you:

    Rodman - 2 time DPOY, 2 time all-star, 2 all-nba teams, and 8 all-defensive teams... Did I mention Basketball Hall of Famer?
    Spreewell- 4 time all-star, 1 all-nba, 1 all-defensive team

    Not once in my post did I mention anything about McGee being a headcase or having off court troubles. The guy is just a clueless "basketball" player. He has ZERO understanding of the game or the fundamentals of it. Say what you want about Rodman and Spreewell, but they were solid basketball players. Way to hijack my post though ;-)

    He will probably get 10, if Jordan can get 10 by just blocking shots and dunking, then why can't mcgee do the same thing?

    I might give McGee $10 million, but I sure as heck wouldn't sign him for 4 years. I'd sign him for 3 years, $27 million with the third year completely unguaranteed.

    Is this a troll response? You better be ready to not pay a good chunk of players in the NBA (That are actually good) then.

    hahahhahaahhaah no.

    He will probably get it though and I agree with croz (shudder ) Yeah he shows flashes. But he shows a lot of other stuff like immaturity, stupidity, clueless, very questionable basketball instincts, thinks he's the man when he's not, bad shot selection and I could go on. I just smh at some of the stuff he does.

    The very last thing he did of the season was getting a lane violation after he left the line too quick on his own FT miss and tried to dunk it. Seemed fitting for Javale.

    As long as it isn't us paying him this $10 million/year, I'm fine with it. The team that does will have buyer's remorse before the ink dries on that contract.
