Still buzz for fouled out star
AS a budding baller growing up in the Melbourne, Andrew Bogut never dreamt of playing in the NBA where he went on to play 13 seasons and claim a championship.
“Because I never thought I was good enough,” Bogut said frankly.
“My goal was to play in the NBL — I loved that league as a kid.”
At Qudos Bank Arena yesterday afternoon, Bogut fulfilled his lifelong goal with an NBL debut for the Sydney Kings.
And, while the former No.1 draft pick didn’t get the result he wanted, he didn’t disappoint — on or off the floor.
Bogut fouled out late in the fourth quarter but he wowed the crowd with his trademark passing, defence and rebounding.
