McGee 'Honored' To Be Member Of Nuggets
JaVale McGee is happy to be in a winning situation after experiencing four losing seasons with the Wizards.
"I'm just excited to be part of a great organization," said McGee, who averaged 9.6 rebounds, 8.6 points and 3.1 blocked shots in the Nuggets’ first round series against the Lakers, his first postseason after playing for Washington. "(Playing for the Nuggets) was the best experience I've ever had in basketball.
"It's just an honor to be a part of this team. This was a great team before I came, so I just tried to add to it. It's a great organization and coaching staff. They put me in more situations that were more suitable for my game."
Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri intends to extend McGee's contract this summer.
"Our intent was to get JaVale for the future, not just for three months," Ujiri said.
