How much can Bogut's play improve offensively?
— This is a question for the historians and stat-geeks of GSoM. Listening to Bogut's interviews yesterday, it's no secret he did not like Skiles offense, nor did he ever thing he had much help. Skiles runs a slow down tempo, which is opposite of what he ran in college, and worked it through Bogut in the post. Bogut's best year (09/10), the Bucks were the 20th fastest pace team. The rest of his years range between there and 30. Our current GSW's are 10th fastest pace team. While not the Nellie Warriors, still a faster than average pace of play, who will push tempo as much as possible. Bogut was effective in this slower system, but I don't think he was able to consistently show what he's capable of on the offensive end of the court. He said this in interviews, and alluded to fact out of college, he ran a lot more, and loved to get looks trailing the break or in early offense. What I know is, Bogut's never played with this much offensive talent (as far as I can see, the only really good offensive player he played with, was Michael Redd) and the system the Bucks ran offensive didn't maximize Bogut's tools. And beyond that he played with a series of chuckers and ballhogs. Because of all that, his efficiency struggled, and he never got the useage he deserved, in the situations he deserved. Is there a precedent for a player like Bogut, who's switched teams 5-6 years into his career and seen a big spike in production, because of new system/better surrounding players?
