Just chatted with Masai Ujiri. JaVale McGee is headed to Houston soon for two weeks of work with Hakeem Olajuwon.

Lol misleading as hell. I was like wtf Denver thinking. Lol.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Knew the title was a joke. He signed with Denver recently... can't be traded!

He could use the teaching. Soooo much raw skill. He could really do something in the league if...

If he could get a legitimate offensive move or two, he might be worth that paycheck he just got.

I remember when I posted "Bynum headed to Orlando" before the all-star break and a bunch of folks got their panties in a twist when they found out I was talking about the ASG.

Javale's release is too long. Guys like Bynum and Howard are still going to eat that shot up because it doesn't leave his hand soon enough.

And neither of them are going to be effective in the post until they learn to get their butts down. It's about leverage. If I was defending them, I'm just going to stay low and strong. They need to learn how to bang a little to make those moves work.

It looks like the aura is trying to bring back the John Stockton look.

Well I don't think he "sucks" as KB24 put it but he does have talent, we saw that in the playoffs. If he gets his head screwed on straight he could be a productive center in this league.

JaVale actually is starting to look fluid. Amare on the other hand still looks robotic. If JaVale can work those fadeaways/jumpers into game situations he could be much harder to deal with. However, his arms almost look too long for him to have a consistent hook/baby hook though.

These guys paid something like $150,000 to train with Hakeem right? When you consider Bynum turned down instruction from our KAJ... :bang:
