What is wrong with George Karl?

David Lee is out for the season. JaVale McGee got paid top dollar to stay in Denver. Can someone please explain to me why JaVale has not played the last 15+ minutes of games 2 and 3? If I recall right, he was an intricate part of the game 1 victory. Also, in game 3 in the fourth quarter, I swear the Warriors only attempted maybe 3 jump shots because they were getting to the bucket with ease. Why was this? No shot blocking presence was in. Game 2, Jarrett Jack wreaked havoc because no shot blocker was in, either. I don't get why George Karl has decided to neutralize the David Lee injury instead of exploit it! It doesn't make sense when you have McGee available to play. McGee is my favorite player and that's why I switched from a Wizards fan to Nuggets fan, so I'm aware of the stupid plays he can make on offense and defense, but his amazing plays on defense by far outweigh his dumb ones. Then on offense, if George Karl is concerned with him taking bad shots, just don't pass him the ball unless it's an alley oop. George Karl has been coaching since before I was born in 1991, so I would assume he would understand simple concepts like this, but I guess not.

Also, what is George Karl's love affair with Kosta Koufus? Last year, we were down 0-2 because of Koufous' horrendous play. Finally George Karl made the switch to only play McGee and Mozgov at center starting in game 3, but it was too late because even though we won 3 out of the next 4 games, it didn't matter because we were down 0-2, so we had to play the deciding game 7 in Los Angeles, but that is neither here nor there. You would think going into this season, the Nuggets would expand on that Mozgov, McGee rotation, so they be more comfortable with it in the playoffs especially since McGee got paid so much to stay, but in actuality, mcGee and Mozgov's roles have actually diminished. Anthony Randolph was also a good pick up for George Karl's uptempo style, but he barely even plays him. He'd rather play the slow and average on both sides of the ball Koufus. IT MAKES NO SENSE!
