JaVale McGee had 22 points and a couple of blocks tonight.

Nothing guys? Seriously? Awesome game yet again. Most improved has got to be his so far.

Mcgee has been massive for us, what a signing.

They're not laughing now....much, that's for certain.

I had my doubts when we signed McGee. I'm glad he's been this good for us. His reputation definitely took a hit with all of those Shaqtin' a Fool moments, but he's been playing lights out for us since the start of the season. Glad to see him turn his career around.

Not sure if this was posted, but Javale and a few of the young guys hit the gym for a post-game workout last night. I see Javale, Ingram, Kuz, Svi.

Looks like they hit the weights before they hit the showers, but where is this weight room? Staples basement?

Plus we have some serious talent developing in the G-League.

Moe and Bonga have modern NBA game and they play at such a nice pace. They don't seem rattled like Svi. I think Svi will pan out but he is thinking way too much on his release. He just needs to let that thing go.

Let me get this right, because I'm sure I'm wrong. But we can keep basically the same team next year minus Zu, Beasly, and Williams? Have Mo and Bonga be our 13th and 14th player AND sign a max player named KD? I mean what in the world?

We back back!

He outplayed Nurkic basically in all 3 match ups this year, and he’s making 2.4M while Nurkic is making like 75M

I doubt KCP will be back. Lance and Rondo would have to take paycuts, but it wouldn't surprise me if either of them chose to do so although I can see Svi or Bonga taking Lance's minutes. Still, with all the young guys on cheap contracts as well as cheap serviceable vets, we're looking really good for next season if we can get that 2nd superstar.

MIP and potentially DPOY as it's a singular player award.

Javale has been playing on minimum deals for 4 years. Now he’s kicking butt and hitting the weight room after games. I think he’s trying to get paid one last time.

Anyone notice Javale's play has fallen off a cliff recently? It's a good thing we have Tyson because I think he's already tired

How serious is his asthma situation? I had asthma as a kid (still do technically) but no longer need inhalers etc.

Wondering what limitations a professional athlete has with asthma

Loved the blocks and the late game left handed layup.

Lol at that play where he got the rebound and jumped and had to pass to no one. And slow reaction Ingram didn't grab it and the ball went out of bounds. SL Ingram, sigh.

As long he keeps ballin, I find these classic Shaqtin moments hilarious.

JaVales situation this year is why I dislike the idea of MIP.

I think MIP likely goes to either LaVine or Fox based off these first 20 or so games. For arguments sake lets say they and McGee keep this play up the rest of the season.

It's FAR more difficult to improve this drastically when you're older than younger. LaVine and Fox have made leaps in their game but isn't that sort of what they're supposed to do? Young players are expected to develop and whats more they are both in situations designed to allow that, they're playing a lot of minutes on young, non playoff teams (kings will return back to earth) whereas McGee is doing this on an entirely new squad that will be torn to shreds if they don't make the playoffs.

I kinda wish they had it as Comeback Player of the Year and kept MIP to players 5 years or less.

Back in my day, the MIP award was rarely, if ever, given to second year guys, so I feel you Seano.
