New Nuggets GM says he’s a big JaVale McGee fan

What else is he going to say?

Part of the reason team president Josh Kroenke sent George Karl packing was he didn’t play his young players like JaVale McGee enough — Kosta Koufos got the starts.

So when new Nuggets General Manager Tim Connelly say when formally introduced?

Exactly. Smart thing to say.

If the Nuggets are going to take a step forward next season they are going to need a much bigger, much more consistent season from McGee. He has the athleticism and the raw talent to be a changer, but all too often he ends up on “Shaqtin’ a Fool” instead. Or worse, he just seemed to take nights off.

Let’s be honest, I still want some of the classic blunder McGee (just for my own amusement), but he needs to be more consistent for the Nuggets to get where they want to go next year.

In more pressing news, Connelly said that re-signing Andre Iguodala is his top priority.

    Sign Iguodala, dump Koufos & Mozgov, go after Aldridge

    Of course he’s gonna say that, that’s probably how he got the job.

    How much of the general public’s opinion is based on the Big Bully’s memes and how much is based on fact? Without Shaq’s bullying commentary I would be slightly optimistic about Javale. He’s a good dude and he’s much more goofy and awkward than trouble. And he seemed to make real strides under Karl last year. This notion that every guy should come into professional sports with a Jordan like focus, gravitas and will is preposterous and absurd on its face.
