Andrew Bogut is on the verge of a second NBA Championship ring.
The Melbourne-born NBA centre is four wins away from a second NBA Championship, and this morning on Triple M Melbourne he revealed to The Hot Breakfast what happened behind the scenes to get him back to the NBA and back with the Golden State Warriors.
A return to the NBA was the furthest thing from his mind when he agreed to a lucrative deal to return to Australia to play in the NBL with the Sydney Kings last year.
Fast forward to December, and Bogut is in Cairns playing in an NBL match against the Taipans, and his phone starts to buzz with text messages from former Warriors teammates probing his interest in a potential return to the NBA.
The rest, as they say, is (NBA) history.
