I wonder if it’s because his asthmatic problems have improved or because Luke doesn’t give a flying (bleep) about it

I’ve been telling peo0le all summer that the whole asthma thing was completely overblown. Kerr and the Warriors were trying to suppress his value by openly talking about it. Asthma is about as controllable a “disease” as it gets. Any professi9nal athlete worth his or her salt can fully play their game with asthma.

Just because Kerr and Karl made reference to his asthma and he “seemed” to be on minutes restrictions does not prove that he’s some sickly athlete who is incapable of playing 20-25 minutes a game. That notion has always been ridiculously silly to me.

Big man are likely to get tired then guards or forwards, so it is actually a pleasant surprise to hear that he can play minutes without restriction.

McGee lost 20 lbs. and changed to a vegan diet.

Changing his diet and going vegan helped Djokovic's stamina in tennis. He also has asthma like McGee and he used to be panting after 1 or 2 sets of tennis but now he lasts 5 sets (4-5 hours) as well as anyone in tennis!!

I read from reddit that someone Improved his asthma when he moved from Arizona to L.A., maybe that’s why his minute workload increased.

At this point I think the GSW downgraded from McGee to an injured Cousins.

You and me both. Fans was saying he couldn’t play more than 15 mins and I pointed out he played over 20 before. But I love the way they’re using him. He’s in the Clint Capela role

Totally agree with this. Using him this way has unlocked his game. I'm not sure if I just never paid attention, but I didn't know he had this in him.

Psure if I just never paid attention, but I didn't know he had this in him.


Occasionally he would be used but the Lakers seem to have made him part of the offense. I think we’re really looking at what Houston and GSW do and were mixing it up. Because of how he’s being used and how Rondo and Lebron is being used but I think Rondo and Lebron move the ball more than Paul and Harden. They’re more iso

He averaged over 27 MPG with the wizards in his 3rd year and 4th years in the league. He averaged over 27 MPG his 2nd year in college as well. So that would be great if he can give us 25. Should definitely give him a career year if he does.

I’m so glad he’s playing this well and Walton said no minute restriction. So many posters here insisted he couldn’t play more than 15 minutes...that was it. Well to all those posters...you were wrong!

I think people (including me) were simply going off the fact that he only played 11 last year.

And it's 2 pre-season games in, let's not put the art before the horse--- in regards to anything

I didn't say he couldn't... I said he didn't. He's averaged 10 minutes per game for four straight years while playing really well... what conclusion would someone naturally come to other than it was his health?

At any rate, he looks great, although he definitely deteriorated with time as he plays at such a fast pace. When I say deteriorated, I don't mean he was bad but he wasn't elevating as much towards the end of his shift and looked a little gassed.

But if Moe can play and JaVale can play 20-25 minutes... we should be in decent shape.

I'm still irritated that we didn't sign Boogie, Dwight, or Brook though. Not instead of JaVale, but to take the rest of the minutes, at least until Moe proves he's NBA caliber.

Lets not get carried away. McGee is playing about 20 mpg in two pre-season games and IMO has looked gassed at time outs. If I remember correctly the comments were his late foul in the first game was given to get off the court.

Part of the reasoning about his mpg was "recent " stats of not playing more then 11mpg in the last three years. Not breaking 20mpg since the 2011-12 season. Also believe that the Kerr comments discussing his limitations were complimentary. Stating McGee plays so hard at a frantic pace it limits him.

It will be interesting to see if he can sustain or even surpass the 20mpg during the season. The Lakers need him on the floor. All the other options seen so far at center (or small ball options) have been a disaster. Especially on the defensive end. Giving up too many easy looks and offensive rebounds.

I hope McGee can continue to have the impact. Even a consistent 20mpg would make me happy.

It isn’t like he has played less than 20 mpg the past 5-6 seasons or anything.
