The reason Gadzuric and Allen had to play as much as they did against the Blazers Monday night is because of Andrew Bogut's back spasms.
People who don't know anything about the Bucks think that the team made a huge mistake by giving the "bust" the huge contract they did in the past offseason.
People who do know about the Bucks know that the success of the entire team revolves around Bogut's ability to set up the offense from the high post, make good decisions from that spot, and rebound.
Had Bogut been in the game, it would've just been another 12-point, 8-rebound night for Oden.
He had a great game against a less talented and undermanned front line of the Milwaukee Bucks. When said in those terms, it sounds like it might take a few more games like this for Oden to be legitimately considered as "the next big thing" in terms of NBA centers.
