Bogut Obsessed With Big, Black Stiffs

NBA Draft is tomorrow night, and Utah center Andrew Bogut is expected to be the first pick by the Milwaukee Bucks. Bogut is not considered a can't-miss prospect, and he thinks it's maybe because he is white. In an interview with Sam Smith of the Chicago Tribune, Bogut points out that there are plenty of black dudes who weren't very good either.

"There's been the great black stiffs too," Bogut told reporters in predraft interviews this month. "The whole big, great white stiff thing comes up every now and then. But there's been Kwame Brown and Michael Olowokandi. They went No. 1. That's just the thing in America. The big white guy isn't supposed to be as good as the big black guy. That's something I can't control, and I'm just going to work hard."
