Phew, tough break....both literally and figuratively. I think if I were Andrew Bogut I would try to look on the bright side here. Sure, his season is over after playing two whole minutes for a contender, but he never really had the opportunity to get his hopes up before they came crashing down with one swift knee to the tibia. He couldn't have become too consumed by the prospect of enacting revenge against the team that promptly dismissed him after a record setting season when it was only a legitimate possibility for a little over one quarter. Just think about much more this would have sucked if it happened during the playoffs or something. At least now he can cling tightly to the idea that he may have been the finishing piece to a championship puzzle if the Cavaliers happen to lose to the team that traded him - in part - because they traded him. If we are going full silver lining then he never even had the chance to come to realization that is impact would be minimal. That "you're lucky you didn't have to face me" card might not be all that effective of a play for a situational big man off the bench but it's better than nothing, and nothing is what Andrew Bogut currently has to look forward to.
In all seriousness, this is pretty disappointing. I didn't think the seven foot Aussie was going to be a huge difference maker or anything, but it would have been entertaining as all hell to watch him set hard, overly aggressive back screens on his former teammates if they both predictably ended up in the finals. As basketball fans, we are all worse off now than we were yesterday. If not because we lost the postseason services of one of the few guys that wouldn't hesitate to put Steph Curry into the second row then because the inevitable playoff scuffle between Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green would have featured some scumbaggery for the ages.
