Thought this was news-worthy enough to deserve its own post. Bogut has been named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Here’s why:

Bogut led Milwaukee to a 3-0 week, which included wins over the Celtics and Jazz. Bogut led the league in blocks (3.67) and was second in rebounding (13.7), while scoring 19.3 points per contest. With a point-rebound double-double in each game, Bogut now has 32 double-doubles on the season, placing him eighth in the NBA.

• March 9 vs. Boston: Posted 25 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks in an 86-84 win over the Celtics.

• March 12 vs. Utah: Tallied 16 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks during a 95-87 win over the Jazz.

• March 14 vs. Indiana: Totaled 17 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in a 98-94 win over the Pacers.

A massive congratulations to AB on this one, and thoroughly deserved I might add. The funny thing is Bogut’s last week wasn’t really any better than his prior week , or the week in late-February when he went on his block rampage. But I guess it takes a while for the eyes of the NBA world to adjust to what is happening in front of them. That being, the big Aussie completely dominating everyone.
