Bring on Bogut! Curry talks up big man addition
GOLDEN State Warriors superstar Steph Curry can't wait to reunite with Andrew Bogut.
Curry significantly benefited from Bogut's presence during the Warriors' 2015 NBA championship.
He believes the Sydney Kings big man will provide Golden State with invaluable impact as they attempt to claim a third consecutive title this season.
"He's a guy that we have a lot of experience with. He knows our system, he knows how we do things around here," the two-time NBA MVP said.
"He was instrumental in that turnaround and us becoming a championship calibre team.
"The fact that he's doing what he was doing in Australia and obviously he still loves the game, he'll be able to help us."
When Bogut signed with the Kings in the NBL, Curry admits he didn't think he'd see the Boomers veteran again.
"I figured once he went to Australia, that would be the last we saw of him in NBA circles … now it's about to happen so it's pretty cool," he said.
"He brings toughness, high IQ, rim protection, just a physical toughness that's kind of hard to find."
