Karl: McGee has ‘Starting mentality’
(JaVale) McGee is averaging 12.3 points (on 62.2 percent shooting), 8.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots since being traded to the Nuggets. In his time in Denver he has been a more imposing, intimidating, effective presence in the middle than normal starter Timofey Mozgov has been of late.
“You’ve got to experiment,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “He played well in the second half (at Minnesota). There’s an energy there. … JaVale is not the most experienced guy in the world, but I think he has more of a starting mentality to his game. We’ve got to experiment to see who plays well with who.”
