Andrew Bogut: Over here, the media may not have picked up on the sarcasm. They think I really hate the guy, but that isn’t the case. Is he in my contact list? No. But that’s about as bad as it gets. There’s no ill will between us, but as far as having a communicating relationship, we don’t have that like some of the other guys on the team do, which is not a problem whatsoever to me. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I wish him all the best and look forward to more and more unique quotes in the future! Sportal
Andrew Bogut is one player who says he no longer has a relationship with Mark Jackson. "No way," Bogut said Monday when asked if he had a relationship with his former coach. "I haven't heard from him since (his firing). I know he keeps in touch with some guys on the team, but I'm kind of in a different crowd I think." San Jose Mercury-News
Bogut's comments came three days after Jackson returned to Oracle Arena to work the Warriors game against the Cavaliers as a color commentator for ESPN. "To me, a rim protector is overrated in this league," Jackson said on the telecast. "You look at the Warriors. No Andrew Bogut, their defense stays or even improves because of the identity, because of what they force you to do." Bogut, who played for Jackson in two injury-plagued seasons, heard the comments. "Well, he gets paid to talk," Bogut said. "He gets paid to give his opinion, and it's one of those things you've got to deal with. Every coach is different. Some coaches value rim protection. Some coaches value ball movement. Some coaches don't. It's just a matter of each coach going toward what they believe is going to win them games." San Jose Mercury-News

Andrew Bogut: It has been a frustrating few weeks because I would love to be out there helping the team. Watching from the sidelines, I can definitely see how I could help if I was out there. It’s disappointing, but I also know that it’s part of the NBA grind. Last season I got hurt at the wrong time and I missed our playoff series so it’s about being smart and being out there at the right time. I’m rehabbing and I should be there soon. Sportal
