Bulls Looking Into Carlos Boozer’s Story

by October 09, 2010

You gotta admit, it’s pretty outlandish, but what’s investigating going to help now? From the NY Daily News: “The Bulls are looking into whether Boozer really suffered the injury to his shooting hand – as he said he did – after tripping over a bag at his home as he went to answer the door on Oct 2. ‘It was just dark, my doorbell rang and I tripped over a gym bag, tried to brace myself and it popped,’ Boozer said the next day, when it was announced that he needed surgery. ‘I jumped back up, opened the door and my hand was still a little numb.’ Immediately after Boozer provided an explanation, red flags went up around the NBA. After investing $80 million guaranteed in Boozer last summer, the Bulls want to make sure that he’s telling the truth, remembering that he once famously reneged on an agreement to remain with the Cavs in 2004. From what we hear, that may have factored into the Bulls’ decision to check out his story.”
