  10. Quote of the Day: George Karl seriously overestimates JaVale McGee

    Mar 20, 2012, 3:27 PM EST

    JaVale McGee

    “I think he plays a little bit like Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar), but he’s a defensive Kareem more than an offensive Kareem.

    Chris Mullin

    If there is one thing pretty much everyone agrees on, it’s unfortunate that Chris Mullin’s well deserved jersey retirement was overshadowed by the fans picking that moment to express their displeasure with co-owner Joe Lacob. I get that there are reasons for the frustration, but the timing was just bad. So, thanks to the magic…
