Bogut's new release overcomes Wallace problem

They say frustration is the mother of all invention. So it was for one member of the Milwaukee Bucks this morning. Frustrated at having had nearly every one of his shot attempts blocked by Detroit Pistons F Rasheed Wallace in their head-to-head matchups this season, Milwaukee Bucks FC Andrew Bogut worked out and perfected a new release for his shot that he has proclaimed "Unblockable, mate!".

Bogut revealed the revolutionary shot to the media today at the Bucks shootaround. As the crowd of reporters gathered round him in anticipation, Bogut took two dribbles and then executed a preposterous backspin release that took his shot attempt in an arcing path directly behind his body. As he did so, he was heard to mutter "Have a bit of this, Sheedy boy!"

Bogut declared his new release technique to be an invention on par with the bouncing bombs that destroyed the Ruhr dam during World War II. When a reporter interjected that any shot released in such a manner had absolutely no chance of ever going into the basket, Bogut spat back "It can't be blocked, either, can it?". The reporter acknowledged that it probably couldn't. "Then problem solved, isn't it?" the rookie exclaimed.

When asked why so many Commonwealth speakers end declarative statements with questions, Bogut simply scratched his head and answered "We're different kind of speakers than you lot, aren't we?"

Brilliant! I can't wait to see this new move unveiled on Sunday.

The sheedy boy quote is another bogut quote classic along with these:

"People go to clubs after games, party, have drinks," Bogut said. "But I'm not going to do that, man, that's stupid …you've got to look after your body."

"I've had a better collegiate career than anyone else from Australia that came over here. I'm not as slow as Luc Longley, I'm more athletic, I can shoot better, I'm more competitive. So I think it's not even fair to bring that name up."

"This is a such great day in the life of Andrew Bogut, the family of Andrew Bogut."

"It was a pretty quick hook," Bogut was quoted by The AP as saying. "I needed a rest anyway."

"I want to become the best centre in the Eastern Conference in the next couple of years,"

"I'll probably have some people come in that I haven't seen for 20 years, and I'm going to tell them straight out, I don't want nothing to do with you. I'm not a posse guy. I'm not going to have a bunch of guys rolling around with me, playing PlayStation and paying them money. I don't see the point in that."

"Definitely," Bogut said. "That's how it is. A big white guy, the No. 1 pick, nobody likes that."

"Not really because there's been the great black stiff, too," Bogut told draftexpress.com. "There's been Kwame Browns and there have been Michael Olowokandis, too. Everyone forgets about those guys, but they went No. 1 in the draft, too. That's just the thing in America: the big white guy isn't supposed to be as good as the big black guy. That's something I can't control, and I'm just going to work hard."

"I played in the Olympics against up-and-down players like Tim Duncan and (Amare) Stoudemire. I think anybody questioning my athleticism is ridiculous”

"I'm not as slow as Vlade,"

"The problem these days is money, and the guys just all want to be All-Stars. That (1992 Dream Team) was all All-Stars, the best of the best. But they were professional in their manner, on and off the court. They weren't immature kids coming out of high school.

"These days, guys play 82 games a year where the ball is going through them every game. All of a sudden, they train with the best of the best and there's not enough basketballs on the court. It's a cliché, but it's so true, I think. They really need to get more role players on the USA team that aren't Dream Team-caliber but just understand their roles.

"I think I will be pretty unstoppable,"

"There's no one I really hate, but Kobe [Bryant] had a demeanor of being very cocky,"

"I can shoot a hook going either way," Bogut said. "I'm ambidextrous. I can get up and down the floor. I can jump. I am athletic enough to play in the NBA.
"I've got go-to moves on both boxes. If I work on counter moves to that, I think I'll be pretty hard to stop."
"I may come across as cocky, but people who know me know I'm definitely not cocky," Bogut said. "I don't like to be the player that says me, me, me."
"There's no one I really hate, but Kobe [Bryant] had a demeanor of being very cocky," he said. "What happened with Shaq. . . . If I had a chance to play with Shaq or Tim, if they told me to buy them groceries, I don't care, I buy them groceries. It's a gift to play with somebody like that. Kobe is probably one of the guys that, everybody knows it, he's got that cocky arrogance to him, everything has to surround around him the whole time. Otherwise, he doesn't function. That's the biggest example.”

"My vertical (leap) is only one inch less than (North Carolina forward) Marvin Williams'," Bogut told reporters. "You guys call him the 'superfreak' athleticwise, so I don't see why I'm unathletic."
"If every person who wears a contact lens in the United States has a degenerative eye disorder, I think you'd have a lot of sick people," he says. "I'm not going to go blind in two years, mate."
"I'm quicker on my feet, I've got more of an arsenal of close moves, I can go outside and I can play offensive positions," the 20-year-old said.

"I think I'm much more competitive and much more of a winner than a lot of those guys," Bogut said.

"A lot of guys only care about that pay cheque," he says. "It becomes 'me' before 'we'."
