Anstey says Bogut could damage legacy in NBL
With speculation of Andrew Bogut signing with Melbourne United around this week Chris Anstey has come out and said Bogut could damage his legacy by playing in the NBL and doesn't owe Australian basketball anything.
"I'm probably one of the rare ones that wouldn’t want to see him come back and play because I think his legacy as an NBA player is fantastic and I’d hate to see that diminished," Anstey told the Herald Sun.
“I think he’d be in a no-win situation where if he dominated the NBL and won a championship, everyone will say 'well we expected that’ but if he doesn’t, I think it could negatively impact his legacy in Australian basketball.”
Anstey said Bogut has already given enough to Australian basketball, but he would love to see him in an ownership or managerial role.
It's difficult not to see Anstey having a bit of agenda here after all LK did sack him as coach of United and Anstey then became a face of the rival CLB.
