NBA Star Andrew Bogut Opens Up About Croatian Generals

Golden State Warrior’s Australian-Croatian centre Andrew Bogut has told a Croatian portal that he was “proud” and “happy” when he woke up to the news last week that the Hague court had freed Croatian generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac.

“Although I am not born in Croatia I have to say that I was very, very proud and happy when I saw that the Hague freed our generals,” Bogut told tportal.hr.

The 28-year-old former No. 1 NBA draft pick is expected to miss the team’s next three games as he recovers from ankle surgery which has kept him out of the game. Bogut moved to California to play for the Golden State Warriors from Milwaukee last season.

“California is a great place to live. My house is 20 minutes drive from Oakland and the climate is all I could wish for. I have everything here and I am enjoying it, 100 times better than Milwaukee,” said Bogut.

Bogut, whose father was born in Osijek in eastern Croatia and mother in Karlovac, spends his time between America-Croatia-Australia after buying an apartment on the Croatian island of Pag.
