Here's the excerpt you wanted to post.....

BOGUT: A lot of it, yeah. Definitely a lot of it. I can be the vocal point in the paint, can see the whole floor and talk and communicate, block shots, take charges.

But the other thing we struggled with last year, when we did get stops, we didn’t get the rebound. I think we were the second-worst defensive rebounding team in the league. So it doesn’t make sense to work hard, get the stop and then Dwight Howard gets a tip-in. It kind of demoralizes the whole feel.

So that’s on me and David Lee to make sure we get those defensive rebounds.

-Q: You bring up Howard. What’d you think when Dwight and [Steve] Nash end up in LA?

-BOGUT: (Shakes his head.) The rich get richer. That’s generally how it is in the NBA. Grown accustomed to it the last five-six years. The rich get richer and the poor have to kind of scrounge and find other role players to fill it in. That’s kind of the way it is.

They’re obviously going to come out all guns a-blazin’. Obviously Dwight’s not going to be quite ready (at the start of the season), but just having Nash and Kobe together, and throwing Pau in there, that’s a pretty potent roster.

-Q: How have you done against Dwight in the past?

-BOGUT: Up and down. I’ve had some games where I got in foul trouble, like everybody. And I’ve had some games where I’ve guarded him pretty well.

The focus with Dwight is not to give him any cheap baskets and dunks, because he’s just so strong. Once he gets the ball within 3 feet of the rim, he’s putting you in the basket.

So I try to focus on making him use his touch a little bit more. And if he’s having a good game and making his hook shots, you’re in some trouble.

-Q: You feel a challenge when you see Dwight in your division?

-BOGUT: We’ve got work to do, yeah. I mean, the Lakers wherever they play there tends to be a lot of Laker fans. Same thing here. We know there’s going to be a lot of hype on that bandwagon. That’s going to be a tough team to beat, a state rival.

But we can’t run and hide from that. Hopefully we can steal a coupled games from them and see how we go. But obviously them and Miami are the two championship favorites.

Bogut is just saying what KD, Westbrook, Lebron and the others aren't willing to say. Bogut just lays it all out there.

I actually didn't see anything he said wrong in the excerpt Doc Brown posted. He didn't say, "damn ya'll the Lakers are going to kick our butts up and down the court". He said:
-the Lakers have a potent offense,
-that Dwight won't be healthy at first but he will be,
-He has had good games against Dwight and Bad ones. Also he tries to make DWight use his hook shots instead of easy shots at the rim.
-The Lakers have a huge following

In the end, we should be one of the fav's. Can't find much wrong with what he said but thats just me.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

You know what? I appreciate his honesty. Especially that bit about guarding Dwight.

What's funny is going up the 5 freeway & hearing Warriors fans talk about Bogut like he's gonna do something next year

Warriors have a nice team this season , would love to play them in the 1st round ... Lakers-Warriors games are often entertaining and we always win .... Bogut and Curry inability to stay healthy will probably kill their playoffs hope though

No sugar coating, is something we cannot handle here. It's La-La Land where there is always a happy ending and life is a movie! Haha.

It's funny. You will probably notice that the same people who get upset when someone says "oh, they could be the team to beat" are the same ones who get all upset when someone says "they look good on paper but you still have to play the game".

In fact, I don't think I have ever seen any comment from any other player about our team where the majority of people didn't find some reason to have an issue with it. You just gotta take the stuff in here with a grain of salt.
