McGee will start Thursday's game against Minnesota, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. McGee is set to make his first start in Denver, alongside Nikola Jokic, while the team deals with various injured players. In his last five games, McGee has averaged 4.6 points on 39.1 percent shooting, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.
JaVale McGee was an integral part of the Lakers winning the championship last season. He may not have played a ton of minutes in the playoffs, or had a signature moment during the title run on the court, but it was his manning of the center spot and acceptance of his role that helped the Lakers construct one of the best defenses in the league last year. The way he served in tandem with Dwight Howard to help save Anthony Davis from having to accumulate too much wear-and-tear at the center spot was key for the team as well.
McGee contributed 10 points (5-7 FG), three rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 12 minutes in Monday's 93-89 loss to the Lakers. McGee was greeted pre-game with his 2020 Championship ring in his return to the Staples Center. He displayed decent point-per-minute play in limited action, but McGee's overall value is capped as a reserve.
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is the inventor of the infamous look-away three. He’s done it so many times in his career, that at this point, it has become a bit of a trademark for the greatest shooter of all time. As it turns out, however, this move all started with JaVale McGee.
First Round Analysis: Another big upset! This one though isn’t too surprising. In my prediction, facing CP3 and DeMarcus Cousins, I said, “Could the starpower of Pierce-James be enough to upset the 1-seed?” It obviously was. Also, this one’s a Joe Ali production and we all love us some Joe. It’s also the freshest beef in the bracket, so could pull more votes from those who haven’t gotten the taste out of their mouth.
Beef Breakdown: Shaq and JaVale have a sort of a big brother-little brother relationship. Not in the sense that Shaq looked out for JaVale or anything like that, no certainly not. More in the sense of... Shaq teased JaVale until it became a real fight so vicious Mom had to step in. Seriously their moms got involved.

Do you remember when LeBron James returned to Cleveland?. When he told Lee Jenkins that before anyone cared where he’d play basketball, that he was a kid from Northeast Ohio?
