Bucks Bogut's Opinion of Jawai

Fellow countryman Bogut just giving his 2 cents regarding Nathan and what we can expect from Jawai.

"With [All Star] Jermaine O'Neal obviously getting older in age, he obviously probably won't be playing as much minutes as he was a couple of years back.

"I think he [Jawai] is definitely going to find himself an opportunity to play minutes."

He's getting older in age? That's incredible to think about, I mean I thought he was obviously probably getting older in hat-size, or obviously probably getting older in his religious faith, or obviously probably getting older in making fart sounds by sticking his hand in his armpit.

They do speak english in Australia - no? Obviously probably is my guess.

I think bogut should work on his own game before critiquing others...maybe he's a better scout than player :s

Just caught this in Grange's blog today. More optimistic news regarding Nathan.

Keep it in perspective guys.

The Raptors JUST drafted this kid.

No one associated with the organization in any way (even the beat guys) is going to say "Well, to be honest, he looks like a real pile of shit out there"

We will hear few, if any, resoundingly negative reviews of Jawai this summer. Until the season starts we'll hear the same "great guy, could be a real nice addition" talk.

True.

That had a lot to do with the fact that Hoffa was a reach with a lotto pick though. Had he been a second rounder the criticism may have been turned down a bit.

There were expectations of Hoffa based on his draft position. Anything Jawai contributes, as a mid second rounder, is a bonus.

I just think he could go out there and be totally useless (and judging by his numbers, he's not setting the world on fire) and still all we would get is repeated doses of cautious optimism.
