Welcome Home JaVale!

In all seriousness, I feel better with him than Hartenstein.

I would guess this might mean Milsap is on his way out.

To be honest, Hartenstein actually overperformed my expectations during his Nuggets time, but I understand FO/Malone's motivation to get a defensive specialist as a backup center.

Power shift :lol: Denver front office is inept , only good things they do is drafting , but to lure and acquire the good player to sign with Denver, they are useless.

I don't get it. I thought Hartenstein was a good backup. He appeared to be half insane on the court, and I like that in a backup C.

Well, THAT kind of insane, not Shaqtin' a Fool kind of insane.

Yeah, if we could just combine Danny Ainge's trading skills with Connelly's drafting ability we'd almost have the perfect GM

Hearing a LOT of speculation this move wasn't just about McGee's rim-protection but as much about the anticipation of Drummond going to LAL, there will be battles that Jokic needs to avoid. Given JaVale also has some Championship rings, perhaps he can share to the younger guys what it takes to bring a chip here !

Always liked him; like him better as a Jokic backup.

It will be interesting to see if we see Javale and Jokic play together. It might work in short spurts and be good on defense.

For some reason it feels like only a year ago we were giving up a 1st to dump him. They say he has matured and is a good locker room guy on top of being a great shotblocker and good backup Center, which is what we need. But I am withholding judgement until we can see how he acts over the next few weeks.
