Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

Andrew Bogut will never be the same


I would post the video, but in all honesty, if I watch it again I’m going to throw up. If you have not seen the Andrew Bogut elbow injury, you can find it at (Not a real site. I don’t want you landing on some random spam page.) Anyway, Bogut has been rehabbing after losing most of last year still trying to recover from it, which makes sense considering his arm was obliterated. And in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Bogut shared some good news… and some bad news. From the Sentinel:

On how is elbow feels after the surgery performed in April by Dr. James Andrews and if he still has limitations: “I will have limitations my whole life, but compared to where I was this time last year, it’s night and day better. I am shooting every day and lifting weights four times a week. My elbow still gets very achy if I overdo training (too many shots in one day), so I still have to be a little bit careful.”

There’s a lot of precedent for why Bucks fans need to be horrified of their future. The team is entirely built around the former top draft pick, and hearing “this is going to suck for the rest of my life” has to cause a mass onslaught of Cure records and bourbon. There’s always the chance that Bogut will surprise everyone, that his positive comments are the real indication of where he’s at. But to put it simply, Bogut went through trauma. He’s lucky to be able to use the arm at full function. Then again, players have played through pain before and Bogut shows every indication of being willing to do the work to make it all the way back. The Bucks need that to happen.

Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).

They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.

Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.

The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.

Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.

Notice that DeAndre Jordan loves this.

Nice to see Griffin dunking like his old self again. If you want another view, the NBA retweeted this.
