Goodbye Javale McGee?

Javale McGee

Having Javale McGee join Smart Gilas in International Tournaments will surely help our Philippine National Basketball Team but with a big cost. Since McGee signed a $44 million contract with the Denver Nuggets, allowing McGee to play for Smart Gilas, Denver will require a big insurance policy which should be covered by our country through SBP or Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

Do you think it is still a good idea to pursue Javale McGee for Smart Gilas?
