Q & A With Andrew Bogut - July, 2007
I recently sent Andrew Bogut some questions while he was training and visiting family in Australia. Here they are with his e-mailed responses (on July 31, 2007).
How is the recovery from your foot sprain progressing?
The foot is 100%. It's been great to have a proper offseason to get in the
weights and other on-court things that need work.
What do you think of the Bucks' recent draft choices?
I think they did a great job, they addressed our needs well.
I think Yi could be a great addition to the team, do you think he'll be
convinced that Milwaukee is a good place for him?
I think it's what you make out of it, everyone would like to go to a city
better suited to them. I'd love to play in Melbourne, and maybe I should
lobby to get an NBA team here :), but I'm hoping all works out and Yi is in a
Bucks uni next year!
Do you think there are more people of Asian, Croatian or Australian descent
living in Milwaukee? Should anyone care?
I think the most people outside
of Americans, are Germans, judging what I hear and observe around the
place. I don't think people should care, to me its a great place to be and
the people are very humble and hard working, and that's something I really
Do you have any thoughts on how fellow Aussie, Brad Newley, will fare in
the NBA after being drafted by the Houston Rockets?
I'm not sure, I think he
might end up in Europe to get some more experience. I don't think he will
rush, and that is a smart move.
I see that Chris Anstey will not be playing for the Boomers, any thoughts
about the prospects for the Boomers?
It will be a tough series [with the New Zealand Tall Blacks] and very
very tough, it will be as physical as a rugby game, there is a huge rivalry
You are committed to playing with the Boomers in 2008, correct?
Are you following the progress of the Emus in the FIBA 19-and-other
tournament in Serbia?
I followed what I read, its unfortunate that with one loss the guys finished
out of the top four, but that's the life. They did Australia proud.
Thanks, and have a great summer!
