One thing I've noticed about his game is he doesn't contest shots when people drive at him, he kind of fades back to get the rebound.
Another thing is he wouldn't stay on Diaw. That dude can shoot and he was hanging out in the paint as Diaw knocked down 2 huge jumpers.
That PnR defense is by design, to give up the Parker mid range jumper. I noticed that as well. That's not a decision that Bogut makes, that's determined by the coaching staff. Bogut didn't make a difference when he came back, but it's hard to put out a fire once it's started. The Spurs had the momentum. I'd live with Boris Diaw shooting open jumpers.
As for the Hack-A-Bogut, if he shoots 40% from the FT line, it sure as hell woulda created more points per possession than the terrible possessions that the Dubs were getting at the end of the 4th. The Hack-A-Whoever strategy is bad strategy, and I don't understand why coaches can't do simple math.
