Dramatic improvement from Bogut?

Here's some food for thought. According to several insiders, Bucks center Andrew Bogut looks like a different player early in this training camp. They describe him as more aggressive, more polished, and even stronger, than he was last season.

Should we expect a dramatic leap in Bogut's play this season? That would certainly fit his pattern. After his freshman season at Utah, he was described as a middle of the road first round pick at best. Then his play and production improved so dramatically in his sophomore season (he went from a freshman Eff48 of 29.60 to a sophomore 38.86) that he became a fairly consensus choice as the top pick in the 2005 draft. According to the scouting report on him done by nbadraft.net prior to that draft, his sophomore play improved "10x" from his freshman season.

10x? Well, the NBA ain't the Mountain West, but wouldn't it be great if he could repeat that trick in his sophomore season with the Bucks? We shall see.
