The 37-year-old took part in a Q&A hosted by r/Warriors, saying there are at least a few rules the NBA could borrow from FIBA and the EuroLeague.
“Yes, intentional fouls have to be stopped (to stop breaks, etc.). I like that FIBA rule,” Bogut said, referring to the unsportsmanlike foul rule for intentionally stopping a break. fast.
“Also, I would like the NBA to allow the ball to be touched once it hits the rim,” the Australian added.
Bogut also answered more questions about Stephen Curry, Mark Jackson’s training opportunities and more.
“He’s one of the few superstars I’ve been around that doesn’t act like a superstar,” Bogut Curry described. “He’s one of the best human beings in the NBA.”
Speaking of Jackson, Bogut took a slight dig at his former head coach.
“I think everyone deserves a second chance, and he’ll get another one eventually. But the well-known church in a locker room, I think, is hurting his job prospects,” Bogut commented.
The 37-year-old was also asked if the Warriors would have won the title in 2016 had it not been for Bogut’s injury and Draymond Green’s suspension.
“I think so, but the Cavaliers could also claim they didn’t lose the year before with a healthy team. That’s what it is,” Bogut replied bluntly.
Finally, Bogut shared some Australian vacation destination tips: “Queensland. Tropical sunshine, great beaches and less hustle and bustle.”
