I was trying to remember if I've ever seen Andrew Bogut shoot it from outside 5 feet and I'm coming up blank. AFAIK
, the longest shot he's ever attempted is a free throw. His offensive shooting repertoire consists of dunks, lob dunks & tips, and the occasional sweeping hook.
That's where they'll miss Boogie. He can shoot it reasonably well if they leave him wide open. With Bogut, they're just going to sag off him and clog the paint as he is no
threat to pick & fade. That said, Bogut is an excellent defender in the Dubs system and he and Draymond used to have a kind of shorthand communication that enabled them to switch-out and close-out with great precision. He's probably a better shot blocker. And he sets really good screens and is just as good a passer as Boogie.
So, there are advantages & disadvantages, but the one thing they don't have now is what they signed Boogie for in the first place, which is someone they can throw it into the post and who can muscle in a shot every once in awhile when the game bogs down. They signed him for
the playoffs. What an unbelievably bad break for both him and the Dubs.
