Is Bogut no longer a lock for the Boomers?
He's been a staple of the team for years, but I've started to wonder over the last year if he really should still be a lock for Tokyo. He's starting to look like age and injuries are catching up to him and that that he's cooked. Even at the world cup he was often looking slow and lazy.
With the small ball trend we aren't as desperate for his size anymore. We still have Baynes as our starting C and guys like Landale providing some solid size. Are we better off taking 4-5 of Baynes/Landale/Kay/Motum/Maker/Bolden as well as Simmons as our big men for Tokyo? or is Bogut worthy of being in the mix still?
It would be heartbreaking for him to miss out on a medal after everything he's done for Aussie basketball though.
