Andrew Bogut finished a successful rookie season with the Bucks averaging 9.4 ppg and 7.0 rpg. He was named to the 2005-06 All-Rookie First Team and finished third in votes for the 2006 Rookie of the Year Award. Bogut was also the only top-10 pick from the 2005 draft to start for his team in the 2006 NBA Playoffs.
Bogut's sophomore season in the league was cut short after spraining his left foot and being put on the injured reserve for the final 15 games. He had previously fought off any injury to play in 153 consecutive games. He showed improvement in his second year in the league as he averaged 12.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. Fans will be expecting further improvements in coming years, particularly in blocked shots and free throws if he is to live up to the expectations that come with being drafted number 1. The low point of his second season in the NBA came when he made an obscene gesture towards a home fan after being ejected from a game for a flagrant foul against the Toronto Raptors at the Bradley Center. The move would cost him $25,000.
