With the arrival of Brandon Jennings Andrew Boguts offense is starting to catch fire with more then 15 points a game. Now i don't think he will make it this year but as Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut team up to become more of a threat do you think Bogut as well as Jennings (well its high odds that jennings soon will be in) could be an all star within the next 3 years?
well d howard has got the starting center spot on the east locked up for a while and with brook lopez getting better i don't see an all star team carrying three centers
I could. If you see them play together, they have a very good chemistry with each other. I think as they continue to advance in their careers, possibly in the next 3 years time frame I could see both being All-Stars.
i can see them both being in the all star game within 2 year an Bogut is more versatile than Lopez
I think every big man needs to be complimented by a PG... Much like K-Mart who didn't smell well in NJN during his rookie year particularly with Marbury starring the show and injuries that succumbed him... The same with Bogut... He lacks a pass-first PG that makes him better all around... The Bucks had Mo Williams who tends to shoot more than pass and make plays... They had Luke Ridnour who is quite confusing nowadays... With Brandon Jennings playing well, Bogut can do his thing...
Fizer knows his stuff, for all those who called bogut a bust, you clearly didn't ever watch him and his team play, you just looked at his stats.
All big men need a guard to give them the ball, if he doesnt have one he can't score and contribute. He finally does have one, and hes making all star caliber noise in the nba
15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks isn't All-Star caliber noise in my opinion.
He's not a bust, but I expected more from him. This is his 5th season in the league and his career numbers are average. I mean he's a former #1 pick and plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. He should have better numbers. He's been an average player on a bad team for majority of his career. The Bucks haven't finished a season above .500 since he was drafted. The only reason they made the playoffs his rookie year was because Michael Redd played 80 games and had a career year. I mean, David Lee (30th pick in 2005 NBA Draft) has had arguably a better career than Bogut thus far. I'd rather have at least 4-5 other players from his draft class over him. (Paul, Williams, Bynum and Granger).
m ore versitile then lopez?..i dont see...and i cant recall who it was but someone said lopez would be lucky to get 15 and 8 this year and that he peaked. tried to tell them that this kid is gonna get better and will challenge for a all star spot this year
I think that was Iguodala09 who wasn't high on Lopez at first lol. He's since changed his opinion.
Yea Lopez is the 2nd best Center in the East probably, and he has gotten better. Let me make that clear. I was wrong lol...
+1 for acknowledging lol
lol.. its cool..i was wrong about evans
i dunno why he got passed up by charlotte last year...man that was one of the dumbest draft day decisions in NBA history...instead they drafted DJ augustin who is a poor mans mike james
yeah, apparently Jordan was pulling for Brook Lopez but Larry Brown and the owner said no to MIke and they went with DJ. Unfortunately most will just chalk this up as another Jordan blunder along with Morrison and Kwame.
do you know how many centers average 16, 9 and 1.8? the answer is not many. bogut's numbers this year are better than a lot of fives including kendrick perkins, spencer hawes, marc gasol, memo okur, greg oden, jermaine o'neal, al horford,al jefferson, brendan haywood, nene, and emeka okafor. his stats are also comparable to guys who are making cases for the all-star game such as chris kaman (18.9, 8.7, 1.4), brook lopez (19.5. 9.4, 2.2), joakim noah (10.2, 11.8, 1.7), andrew bynum (17.4, 9.1, 1.7), amare stoudemire (19.2, 7.8, 1), hell, even superman himself (18.2, 12.7, 2.) now taking a look at that list, notice most of those cats play out west. who's bogut competing against in the east? dwight howard is a lock. joakim noah is a little one dimensional; he's having a break out year, too, but i wouldn't expect the east to carry another rebounding machine, all d, no "o" center. i think the second center on the squad is between lopez and bogut. their stats, taken objectively, are pretty much a wash. brook's a better scorer, tho' it should be noted that mr. bogut is much more efficient; brook shoots 49% vs. bogut's 53%. the real question is whether or not brook gets rewarded when he's playing on a team with the worst start in nba history. if jersey has less than ten wins at the break, i think it's pretty hard to justify sending any net to the all-star game. lopez is clearly good, but an all-star, especially a big, has to have some impact on the w-l record.
frankly, bogut should make the all-star team if he keeps it up. his team is likely to hit the break with a better record than noah's team... and a damn sight better than brook's. the only other guy who can really make a case is al horford. and his numbers aren't eye-popping (13.3, 9.3, 1.3.) (i forgot about david lee. but his team sucks and i have a hard time considering him a center even tho' he clearly plays the opposing team's center. sidebar: brendan haywood is averaging 10.2,10.7, and 2.3. who woulda thunk it? i was shocked because i, like most nba fans, don't pay too much attention to brendan haywood.)
i noticed brendan haywood all year. and when greg oden went down i dropped him from my fantsy team for haywood. wish is basically the same numbers.
Brook Lopez > Andrew Bogut (How the hell is Bogut better than Lopez???)
