How United lost Bogut's signature

Great article here from Matt Logue. United wanted to "control the former NBA champion's intellectual property". WRONG decision. Bye Bye United hello Kings.
Crivelli talking it up but ultimately he was the one who wanted that part of Bogut.

I like the publicity Bogut brings but I think people need to be wary about publishing every single thing he says. He talks a lot of shit.

Is he replacing Ross Cameron on Sky News After Dark?

243 Bogut says it as it is. Now what have you done in your life again. Do tell.

Doggr is right. We should never be critical of sport stars, on or off the court, because they are superior to us.

You're kind of proving my point, doggr. People decide that no matter what he says, he must be right just because he is a high profile athlete.

As a United fan it's disappointing that we missed out on Bogut.

But, I'm a bball person first and a United person second. It's much better for the league that he's ended up in Sydney.

Note to self. Don't criticise Bogut while doggr is on his period.

Boggut didn't go to Adelaide due to incorrect spelling.

No, he didn't go to Adelaide due to its lack of EFTPOS facilities.

So bogut is lying about wanting to sign with his hometown team?

I have dealt with vincein seabl and bball in victoria numerous times when i use to play, and i would bet the house he tried to pull something dodgy.
Guy couldnt coach his way way out of a paper bag, and should keep on kissing larry everytime he sees him like he already does,that he evn has an admin job in basketball, period!

Didn't Sydney neglect to pay out Bogut’s contract with Adelaide?

Bogut's not lying about anything with signing with Melbourne. Let you bias not cloud the truth. They couldn't reach and agreement based on Crivelli's offer. Read Kestleman. Nuff said.

So Bogut is now contradicting everything he previously said about why he joined Sydney?

Did he finally realise what a pile of shit he had talked?

He claimed in part that he chose Sydney because he didn't want to join a stacked team. I guess Sydney never got that memo.

It's quite surprising the rep that Crivelli has around the traps. The rep isn't good.

Blessing in disguise for United.
Sounds good to have Bogut around, but he rubs many people the wrong way and isn't exactly conducting himself like a leader in sydney, see his body language during timeouts and his dummy spit storm off at halftime of Monday’s game. He would be exhausting to have around.

A few months ago he said he had decided to give up on the NBA. What he didnt say is that decision was made for him. No team would have him, and not just because of injury concerns.

To be fair on Bogues, it's good to see a bit of frustration from players when their team isn't performing... I'd have been pissed as well, it shows he's bought in and actually cares about winning... Either that, or maybe he could have been really busting and didn't want to get caught up with a half time interview...

Well he is generally full of shit, but I'm surprised he hasn’t learnt how to hold it in.

When you're that full of it holding it in becomes that much harder.

Bogut knocking is like Gaze knocking, easy to do key board warriors who are perfect. Both are outstanding servants to the game basketball in Australia.

Big difference between Champion Player and Champion Coach
Just ask Gaze
Happens in all sports- think Russell Ebert with Port- Champion Player and expected all players to put in same commitment that he put in to achieve so much

Not talking about Bogut's achievements or contribution to basketball. He’s a loudmouth whose opinions appeal to the lowest common denominator.
