NBA Star (Andrew Bogut)

Bogut would destroy the NBL. Wish the Tigers signed him instead of Mills.

Hey man I'm assuming you live in Australia or at least know a fair bit about the Nbl given your user name. I too am from Australia but in all seriousness do you actually see bogut playing in the Nbl?

Personally I don't see it happening as much as Australian basketball really needs it. The way Patty Mills was signed was pretty controversial and even though its short term I don't see basketball Australia getting there stuff together allowing it to happen

Bogut said he'll go to Croatia if anywhere in case of a lockout. Cibona Zagreb is the team he actually said he'd join.

Do you have a link to support this because Ive heard nothing of that so far. Australia is buzzing with reports and even Boguts twitter page indicates he is trying to reach a deal with an NBL team, which at the moment appears to be either the Wildcats, 36ers, kings or tigers but as his insurance is $500k and the small size of the NBL salary cap basketball Australia needs to intervene to get it done...

Ah my bad.. didn't follow the Bogut rumors. Turns out that Bogut (his dad really) denied the rumors of him joining Cibona a few days after the rumor was out.

I swear to god im not trying to be a homer here, as proof Ill even tell you Im specifically from Perth, but why should Bogut not join the Wildcats? Living on the west coast we get screwed 99% of the time by the government and anything to do with sport in favor of the eastern states.

Yes I realize majority of the population live in the eastern states, but Perth has the advantage of Isolation in that the only sport that is really "popular" here is football so basketball has a much greater chance to thrive unlike the eastern states city that have soccer and rugby to compete with too. Its not as if Bogut would only play in Perth....

What team do you think he should play for?

Don't see Bogut playing in Oz. Hope to see Mills practice being a pg rather than an sg. He would be more efficient if he is able to dish out more assists than shot attempts.

Blazers fan checking in... Patty wouldnt have made the Blazers roster this year so its not a big deal. And Bogut prob. would have an NBA out anyways like every other NBA "star" there is out there...

This seems to me like a "who cares post"

Honestly how ignorant do some people have to be. What you said regarding Mills may be true, what you obviously do not understand however is that there are NBA fans all over the globe not just in America! Truth be told, there are probably even some Americans that love the NBA that much they would still "care" enough to read this. You still read it knowing entirely what the thread was about so wouldn't that mean you "cared" enough?

For NBA fans in Australia Bogut playing here is a huge thing! Bogut is considered as one of the best centers in the league and most of us Australians cannot afford a trip to the states to watch NBA games live, something you obviously take for granted. There is no need for your negative comment....

Haha fair enough. Everyone has to look out for their own don't they :P. Obviously I want Wildcats to get him but if he went to any team outside of the Kings or Tigers (only because they have Mills) then I wouldn't really loose any sleep
