Bogut, the leading vote-getter on the AP All-America team, averaged 20.4 points and 12.2 rebounds while leading the Utes to a 29-6 season, which ended with a loss to Kentucky in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament.
"My decision is about what is best for my basketball career," Bogut said.
He's already hired an agent.
I wouldn't listen to those comparisons. They have Andriuskevicius being compared to Chris Webber. Figure that one out.TonyM said:hoops hype compared him to divac. gross. he'll be a solid pro. heard majerus say today on sporting news radio that bogut needed to stay in school.
i'm sure the nba would like to see that also. there seems to be a pipeline between australia and college teams but not so much with europe. it would have been nice to see a darko milicic playing in the states for a couple of years. the key word there is playing.TheATLien said:I wonder with Bogut's success if we might see more international players coming to the United States with the intent on playing in the NCAA for a year or two, and then going pro. I doubt it, but I would like to see it happen.
Not an impressive rebounder, not very good against players his own size.SeaNet said:Bogut is going to be a beast in the NBA, IMO. I really like the kid. Big, strong, great hands, good footwork, great passer, and mean. What's not to like?
He only had 11 boards in 40 minutes against a very small UTEP team and again in the second round against a smallish Oklahoma team, and was having a lot of trouble getting them. Then when Kentucky put a seven-footer on him in the Sweet 16, he was getting murdered down low.SeaNet said:I disagree on both counts.
