(WNFL) - Former Milwaukee Bucks' center Andrew Bogut says things might have been different for himself and his old team, had he not been severely injured in 2010. Bogut said he lost some of his shooting touch after he fell to the floor against Phoenix in April of that year. He severely injured his right shooting hand and elbow. Two seasons later, the 7-foot Bogut broke his left ankle in his final Milwaukee game against Houston. A few weeks later, he was traded to Golden State for shooting guard Monta Ellis -- who has since moved on to Dallas. At first, the trade looked like a steal for Milwaukee, after Bogut played in only a handful of games for the Warriors over the next year-and-a-half. But now, it's the Bucks that appeared to get the short end of the deal, as they struggle to a 7-and-27 record while Golden State basks in a 10-game winning streak. The 29-year-old Bogut is finally seeing his potential realized this season, averaging eight points and 10-plus rebounds per game. He said he wished he could take his devastating injuries back, but they're part of the game. Except for a one-game suspension, Bogut has played in all 36 of his contests for Golden State this season. He had eight points and a dozen boards against his old team last night, when the Warriors crushed the Bucks 101-to-80 in Milwaukee.
