Thanks to NBAMate reader Zac for posting this one. Seems like the “Bogut for All-Star” campaign is not dead yet, according to Steve Aschburner at NBA.com.
“Bogut, why isn’t he on the All Star team? A guy averaging numbers like that, a double-double, for a team on the cusp [of a playoff berth]? If he gets a little luck and maybe a little mean streak in him, he’ll be there….
He reminds me of Dirk [Nowitzki] so much, man. Just meeting him, his personality,” Stackhouse said. “Look at him on the court, you get kind of an aloofness from the outside in. But being around him in the locker room and on the plane, he’s always joking and stuff. There’s a lot of similarities between those two.”
Also some great quotes in there from Coach Skiles. Great to read this kind of praise for the Big Aussie, especially on the official NBA site.
