Andrew Bogut

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living upsets

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Oregon and Wisconsin score another touchdown…. Hawks 100, Heat 92: Miami was zoned out again. The Hawks went to a zone defense a lot starting in the second quarter and it stalled out the Heat, who shot just 37 percent in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tracy McGrady alone had 13…

  2. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  3. Stephen Jackson has bone spurs in his back. That’s gonna hurt.

    Dec 23, 2011, 9:52 AM EDT

    stephen-jackson-bucks2

    Stephen Jackson wants a contract extension — he wants two years tacked on to the two he’s got. Turns out that’s not why he went missing from Bucks training camp for a few days, however. What doctors found were bone spurs in his back and more, according to the Journal Times. Asked specifically about his…

  4. Stephen Jackson returns to practice with the Bucks

    Dec 20, 2011, 7:18 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-bucks2

    There was plenty of speculation that Stephen Jackson had ulterior motives for skipping out on a few days of Milwaukee Bucks practices — read: money — but maybe not. Maybe it was all about his back. Jackson was cleared to practice Tuesday and will be back on the court with the team Wednesday, reports the…

  5. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    2010-11 record: 35-47, just missing the playoffs but not in a position to get a great draft pick Head Coach: Scott Skiles Key Departures: Corey Maggette, John Salmons Key Additions: Stephen Jackson, Mike Dunleavy Jr., Beno Udrih Best-Case Scenario: The Bucks continue to play suffocating defense while finding some semblance of an offensive identity. The…

  6. Nuggets try, but Bucks match offer to keep Mbah a Moute

    Dec 10, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mbah a Moute

    Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is one of those players that the casual fans say “who?” and GMs around the NBA covet. He is one of the elite perimeter defenders in the league and those are hard to come by. Denver tried to steal Mbah a Moute out from under Milwaukee with a four-year, $19…

  7. Report: Lakers will trade Bynum for “right deal” (meaning Howard)

    Dec 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Jim Buss has a fondness for Andrew Bynum. Buss is now the guy calling the day-to-day shots for the Lakers but when he was coming up he was one of the champions of the Lakers drafting Bynum. This has made Bynum sort of Buss’ sign that he could do this job while many around the…

  8. What the Bucks should do when the lockout ends

    This is the final installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Our final team is the Milwaukee Bucks. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last season: I, and the other eighteen to twenty bloggers who…

  9. Brandon Jennings takes aim for the 40-percent mark

    Oct 14, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Yesterday, in a live chat on ESPN.com, Brandon Jennings lobbed an easy-as-pie piece of cake over the plate. He didn’t have to; Jennings had stopped by to pretty clearly shill for Court Grip — the new product which Dwyane Wade plugged so aggressively but a few weeks earlier — and those kinds of advertising tours…

  10. Insurance will keep Bogut from playing in Australia after all

    Oct 6, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut wanted to play in Australia during the lockout. He even tweeted it was almost a reality. He could sharpen his game coming off an injury and bring attention to a hoops league in a nation where rugby, Australian Rules Football, soccer, cricket and other sports are thought of well before hoops. (Well, Australian Rules…

  11. Andrew Bogut close to deal to play in Australia

    Oct 3, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut is playing down under, mate. Insurance issues had been holding back the biggest name in Australian basketball from signing with a team in his native land, but that appears to have been worked out, according to The Age (via Brewhoop, which has a great breakdown). Bogut and his manager Bruce Kaider have received…

  12. Andrew Bogut will never be the same

    Sep 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    I would post the video, but in all honesty, if I watch it again I’m going to throw up. If you have not seen the Andrew Bogut elbow injury, you can find it at thingswhichshouldneverbeshownagain.com. (Not a real site. I don’t want you landing on some random spam page.) Anyway, Bogut has been rehabbing after…

  13. Insurance issues holding up Bogut from playing down under

    Sep 23, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut is finally feeling like his badly injured arm is fully healed, he is ready to return to the court. Except the NBA is not returning to the court. So instead Bogut wants to play in his native Australia for a little while or until the lockout ends. However, now its insurance on the…

  14. NBA fined Michael Jordan $100,000 for talking lockout

    Sep 12, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Last month, when Bobcats owner Michael Jordan talked to a paper in Australia about the lockout, our initial reaction was to start a fine countdown. David Stern said he was going to fine any team executives who talked publicly about the lockout, and when it comes to fines Stern is a man of his word.…

  15. Does anybody want to go to Milwaukee? Przybilla does.

    Sep 12, 2011, 10:35 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    Milwaukee does not usually come up on top of a player’s list of desired free agent destinations. That despite the city’s fantastic array of bratwursts eateries. But Joel Przybilla is the exception — hw wants to come back and play there. Przybilla is a free agent looking to hook on somewhere next season as a…

  16. Australia wins Oceania Tournament, headed to Olympics

    Sep 9, 2011, 1:41 PM EDT

    autralia-Patty Mills

    We’ve been giving you regular updates on what is happening with the Olympic qualifying tournaments taking place in Europe and South America right now. But we haven’t really discussed the Oceania qualifier that just wrapped up — because it is pretty much always won by Australia. And was again Friday, with the Aussies beating New…

  17. Does Australia want Bogut enough for the government to help?

    Sep 2, 2011, 1:24 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut is a big deal in Australia. They have other players in the NBA — hello Patty Mills — but Bogut is a defensive stalwart, the former college player of the year at Utah who, if he gets his shooting touch back, is a borderline All-Star. Plenty of teams in the Australian league (the…

  18. Today’s overseas roundup: Patty Mills to Australia, Bogut to join him?

    Aug 29, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    There are so many NBA players both talking to and signing with overseas teams that we collect them in a daily roundup. I do this in bullet points because I am a blogger. Agent Mulder could more easily ignore a conspiracy than I could ignore the chance to use bullet points. • Patty Mills is…

  19. Michael Jordan states the owners case, likely to get fined

    Aug 18, 2011, 12:11 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    If you thought as a former player Michael Jordan could be the bridge of sanity between the NBA owners and players, think again. Jordan is the owner of one of the most financially challenged teams in the NBA in the Charlotte Bobcats. He’s one of those small market, heavily leveraged owners who need the system…

  20. Andrew Bogut an assistant coach with Australian team

    Jul 28, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut is not playing for his native Australia this summer as the nation tries to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. Bogut is coming off a second surgery on his elbow and there was the issue of getting insurance during the lockout. So instead he is coaching. Here is the note from Sportando (via…

  21. Bogut says elbow doing “much, much better”

    Jul 21, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut’s elbow was not right last season, and it showed. He shot 1.4 fewer shots per game and made a lower percentage of them. Where it was really evident was the free throw line, where his shooting percentage dropped from 62.9 percent down to 44 percent. He went back under the knife after the…

  22. Wolves still shopping No. 2 pick, odd rumors abound

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    We know this much — Derrick Williams out of Arizona will be the No. 2 pick in this draft. (Don’t buy the lines that the Cavs might take him No. 1, it’s not happening.) What we don’t know — who will be drafting Williams. With the draft just four days away, Minnesota is working hard…

  23. Howard leads NBA All-Defensive team, but with Kobe?

    May 9, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 5: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The votes on NBA All-Defensive team are often more about reputation than how somebody is actually performing. In theory coaches vote on this award, but it’s taken about as seriously as the coaches ballots in college football polls. Which means sometimes an assistant fills it out, sometimes the team PR guy, pretty much anyone but…

  24. Andrew Bogut to have another elbow surgery, season over

    Apr 8, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Image (1) bogut_injured-thumb-250x172-18540-thumb-250x172-18541.jpg for post 4093

    Andrew Bogut’s elbow just was never right this season. Which shouldn’t be a shock after the gruesome injury he suffered a year ago. The fact he pushed back to play 65 games through pain is a credit to his desire to be there for the team. But with him not right — and other players…

  25. Milwaukee’s love affair with the jumper killing their offense

    Mar 16, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Milwaukee’s offense is just awful. Dead last in the league in points scored per possession (98.2 points per 100 possessions according to Hoopdata) but beyond the numbers it just comes off a team floating through the game. Bango seems the only Buck attacking the rim some nights. Which is odd for a team with Brandon…
