Bogut got to pick Mavs or Rockets, right call?

So it seems the Warriors let Bogut pick between the Mavs or the Rockets to where he would go as they could get the same package. I kind of think he should have gone Rockets as at least you have Harden who is an elite talent in his prime and a GM that is always agresssive. The only downside is Harden is the kind of player that would probably drive Andrew crazy. Do you think he made the correct call?

Yup he made the right call. I would choose to play with an unselfish guy like Dirk over James "I can't guard a chair" Harden any day of the week.

fair classy move by Warriors to let him choose I have to say.

Obviously he made the right move. Dallas will show him respect and he won't have to throw Harden into a wall

Yes, right move. I think Harden would be very frustrating for a guy like Bogut who would expect effort and team play from team mates.

Absolutely the right call. Why would anyone choose to play with Harden?

Definitely the right move. No Harden. Cuban seems to really look after players & Bogut still gets to play with Barnes (from Facebook it seems like those two guys get on really well)

My thoughts are that the Mav's will be a better fit for Bogie, also I think we will just see more of the same from the Rockets and that wasn't good enough last season, so yeah great decision!

I think he missed a good opportunity to average 10 blocks a game in Houston, all of them on whoever Harden is "defending".

Dallas for sure. Mark Cuban does so much for the city of Dallas and his players. Bogut will love the culture down there, also close to Austin which is a fun place, not much to do in Dallas although Houston is even more boring. Also direct flights to Australia from Dallas like he had in San Fran. Hopefully Carlisle will use him more on the offensive end then in GS.

Hehe, found this amusing Sitiveni.

Multi millionaires with private jets would play this card!

Yep glad he went to Dallas - Houston will be very average this season..

Bout recently talked about his flight back home with Qantas. So I'm guessing he didn't fly in a private plane

Houston want to play fast. 3's and ft's and transition. Bogut needs a slower tempo.
