Andrew Bogut may face disciplinary action from the NBA after making an obscene gesture toward the crowd near the end of Milwaukee's 108-93 loss to Toronto on Monday night.
After committing a flagrant foul against Toronto's Chris Bosh with 49 seconds remaining, Bogut was ejected.
Milwaukee television station WTMJ showed video footage of Bogut making a gesture toward the grandstands as he left the court. Bogut did not talk to reporters after the game.
"We're aware of it," NBA vice-president of basketball communications Tim Frank said Tuesday. "We're reviewing it."
"Semi-bust." I made a thread last year after all the Bosh and Yao <Bogut threads on ISH calling him out. "Semi-bust", as I explained in that thread, means to me that he will never be on the Bosh, Ming level, but on the prime Brad Miller level.
15/9/4 on high FG% is what I see, which isn't what many had predicted before he came to the NBA. That to me, is a roleplayer and a "semi-bust" for a player who was supposed to come to the NBA and be the next great center.
Though it's unprofessional and he should be fined, it's very understandable in the heat of the moment.
As for him being a bust: I don't think most people thought he would be a superstar in the NBA. He was first pick in weak draft, and will likely become a solid starter with a fairly long career. I doubt he is making any all star teams, but I can see him getting 15-18 ppg, and 8-10 rpg during his prime. Not great for a #1 pick, but in the mid range of expectations.
I thought it was kind of weird ....
But last year he was frustrated because even as a rookie he expected the offense to go through him.
(I am a Bucks fan)
This year it appears he is still not getting enough toughs , and I think he's frustration just showed up .
I think he was flipping off the franchise because he expects to win.
What is he 22 ??
When Brad Miller was available from Chicago , I wanted the Bucks to grab him. Well if Bogut becomes Brad Miller for 5 years I'll take that.
