In case you forgot and needed a reminder, big men get paid! Whether it's Roy Hibbert or Brook Lopez and to a lesser degree Ian Mahimni, this summer is proof that when in doubt, just give your seven footer too much money. Even restricted free agency didn't delude the big man market this summer. In fact, being restricted kind of forced Indiana and Brooklyn's hand on their two not quite franchise big men. With Portland offering Hibbert the max and both Portland and Charlotte expressing interest in Lopez at a max rate, Indy and Brooklyn really had no choice in giving max contracts to non-max players. Enter JaVale McGee, the other seven foot restricted free agent. Benjamin Hochmann of the Denver Post reports McGee has a standing offer to stay in Denver at a very reasonable price.

JaVale McGee averaged 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds in 20 regular-season games played for the Nuggets last season.
Is this a punk? Or is this more of an example of Denver Nuggets’ newest addition, Evan Fournier, displaying what he can do on the fast-break over Denver’s resident dunker – and who placed 11th in the league last year for total dunks — Kenneth Faried?
In the midst of free agency and the Denver Nuggets trying to get a reasonable $10 million per season with re-signing JaVale McGee, some may have forgotten that Ty Lawson become a restricted free agent next season. Prior to next season, many hoped this summer Masai would work a new Lawson deal, and although [...]
Just when it appears Denver Nuggets General Manager Masai Ujiri is done finagling with Denver’s roster the rumor mill begins swirling. This time it involves Anthony Randolph and you may remember his name thrown around during the Carmelo Anthony trade, but never went to Denver rather to Minnesota. Free agent forward Anthony Randolph is watching the [...]
Summer League is upon us and specifically the Denver Nuggets begin their five-game stint in Vegas on Saturday competing against the Golden State Warriors. While it will be great to see our drafted rooks such as newly inked Evan Fournier, but I’m most excited to see the MANIMAL light up the boards and Jordan [...]
Remembering that Rudy Fernandez dunked on Dwight Howard and his neck four years ago made me happy. God bless America. (And Spain.)The post Starting Lineups: Rudy Fernandez Dunking On Dwight Howard In 2008 Makes Me Happy appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Although Blake Griffin leaping over a car, while being fed the ball by former teammate Baron Davis and then slamming the rock through the hole, was a spectacular feat; I was more impressed by center JaVale McGee’s performance, in the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
