Andrew Bogut got into a verbal back-and-forth with JaVale McGee in Game 3 of the Golden State Warriors' first-round series against the Denver Nuggets, but it's safe to say the Aussie center had the last word in Game 4, as he thundered home a massive right-handed slam on McGee's head.

The Nuggets had been sending two defenders at the Warriors point guards throughout the series, and the story was the same in the early going of Game 4. Bogut had been serving as a capable safety valve in the first quarter, receiving the ball at the elbow and moving it to open shooters or cutters as Denver's defense scrambled to recover.

But in this instance, he decided to handle things himself.

Sam Amick of USA Today noted that the play took care of the unfinished business between Bogut and McGee:

Then, Brian Geltzeiler of Sheridan Hoops said what Warriors fans had known for the past couple of weeks: Bogut was starting to look like himself again.

Still, there were some among the uninitiated that hadn't seen this version of Bogut before, like the good people over at Hardwood Paroxysm:

How dare you, sir? Please refresh your memory here.

Perhaps most appropriately, Bogut's massive slam came on the day that Monta Ellis—the man he was traded for last spring—was quietly swept out of the postseason. Shortsighted Dubs fans spent the end of last year booing owner Joe Lacob and lamenting the loss of their beloved undersized guard.

How's that trade looking now?

Well put, Mr. Ratto. Well put.
