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?"
