vs the Raptors in the finals I could only get plus minus on a game by game basis. Some games Bogut got good numbers. One game Cousins got good numbers. Sample sizes are too small. 2019 Bogut never looked like healthy 2016 Bogut. Warriors had a lack of shooters. Cousins was shooter. But Cousins was injured. Even Looney was injured.
Bogut was not good vs the Raptors.
In the last two games especially the Raptors hunted for Cousins off switches and he gave up too much.
Not saying McGee would be better off switches.
Lakers did raise McGee's salary significantly, as he's earning more than double what Dwight Howard is getting. It sounds like the Warriors let McGee know that they'd always pay him a minimum deal because of their cap situation and the fact that they didn't give him a lot of minutes.
He averaged 9.5 MPG at GSW and has averaged 19.5 MPG at LAL.
