    Seems like a number very close to 72, making this bet not very much worthwhile.

    Let's make that bet with both Ryan Anderson and Gordon.

    I'll take the under on that, especially if we're talking about actually playing basketball while on the court.

    Glad he picked Dallas, I doubt he'll get away with his moving screen M.O. anywhere after leaving GS.

    He'll get a buyout from the Mavs before the All-star break. That's about when his body with crumble and his kangaroo ass will be in a suit.

    So if traded to the Cavs, he would have asked for a buyout?

    Bogut is gonna get hurt ten games into the season anyway.

    He can talk all the mad **** he wants from the bench in a suit.

    Andrew Bogut is good. We could use his toughness on our team. It's going to suck playing against him on the Mavs now.

    He's good on D when he's not hurt. 4 on 5 offense, but the big man position isn't what it used to be on offense. I resent having to type that.

    Screw Bogut. Such a diva, enjoy getting paid millions to play basketball rather than sulk about playing for a team you didn't want.

    While Capela doesn't have the size/presence/defensive rebounding of Bogut at this time, Clint's upside and further development might be item #1 to be concerned about for the future of the Rockets. Because if he can be that 12/10 guy on a nightly basis, your set at that position.

    Why the Rockets even considered bringing in a guy like Bogut to take PT away from Clint is beyond me. Bogut is better, and has proven he can fit in a motion/3 point offense... but he's old, expensive, oft injured, and another body in front of your future guy.

    Also while I'm not sure of the math gymnastics, I'm thinking with Bogut things like Harden's extension would have been much less likely. And Harden's extension is the best move DM has made in a while...

    Glad it was a pass for him.

    He's actually a really good passer. Definitely not a 4 on 5 situation with him at all. He's very good at creating opportunities for others from the high post and the elbows.

    I'll roll the dice with Nene and Capela over this guy. Nene is a better offensive player and close on defense interms of ability. Both are solid passers but Nene is much cheaper on the contract side of things.

    Bogut is a douche and will take over Parson's injury prone seat on the bench. He will fit nicely in Dallas

    Nene is better.
