Fight of His Life

If there’s one thing Carlos Boozer now has, it’s perspective.

Carlos Boozer has brought a business like approach to the cold winters of Utah. Having established himself as one of the best forwards in the game, the former Duke Blue Devil is looking to do with Deron Williams what Karl Malone and John Stockton never quite could: bring the Larry O’Brien trophy to Salt Lake City.—Adam Fleischer

    I have some perspective too. This guy’s a prick.

    The man who turned on the Cavs and spurred on the forever infamous website (nick)name CarlosLoozer.com

    Interesting SLAM article though that made you hate him slightly less as it was about getting help for his daughter much the same way as Fisher did only a season later, although nothing about having to get that medical family 1st help in Utah and why he couldn’t in Cleveland.

    sadly, that basketball drove past Boozer and layed it up with ease.

    I liked the pics in that Boozer article. Awesome.

    The picture is pretty cool. But Evil Skull Betrayal Dude is wack. I might actually like the Jazz if they let him go and sign Paul Millsap.

    Anton FTW as usual.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I don’t like to say this, but Betrayal Skull Dude is pretty darn good of a player. He just needs to stop being a Betrayal Skull Dude to the teams that need him.

    Dallas wants Boozer. Dallas needs Boozer. Dallas+Boozer=Love.

  • Dave

    Actually, as much as I think this is ancient history, I have to ask – why does nobody hate Elton Brand as much as they hate Carlos Boozer? About the only answers I can come up with is that the Clippers don’t have any fans to upset like the Cavs did, and possibly that both the 76ers and Brand got their just desserts this season. Or does Boozer have the hate-me gene?

  • http://PROTEGECOLLECTIONYAHOO.COM DALLAS STOKES

    That is why you don’t post drunk. However its still the truth PRESIDENT HURSTY H. HATER and vice president DO IT 2 DAVE. Dave has a good point that nobody is lighting EB up for that move.

  • Jacob

    boozer is such a d-bag, I hate that dude so much

  • Erik

    ya man, after was carlos did to the cavs, i hope that stigma stays with him for the rest of his career. Im not a carlos boozer fan

  • http://www.hibacho20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Thanks Dallas :)
    btw, it’s likely because Elton Brand doesn’t look like he’s had a pitchfork ran through his face on multiple occassions. Oh, and he never said that he would walk out on a team during the season+ The Cavs owner (former) was Gordon Gund- a blind man. Now tell me that its similair.
    PS- The Cavs were still dog awful in 2004/5.

  • chintao

    I got excited reading the headline, because I thought Booz had a terminal illness. Stop jerking my chain, SLAM!

  • http://www.broy7.com/roy/index nate the great

    Ya, i dont really kno why i hate him. i have no real reason, i almost hate everyone on the jazz team.. besides Dwill.
    i mean they are all the rejects nobody wanted, even know they have a decent amount of skill.
    but i mean.
    harpring, memo, korver, brevin knight, boozer.
    wtf are up with these guys?

  • Riley R.

    Booz actually looks under-manicured for this shot. Is that a shadow over the bridge of his nose or did he forget to pluck. I’m so disappointed.

  • Riley R.

    Booz has abandoned everyone who’s ever believed in him, e.g. Cavs, Jazz, his own wife (ouch…) This shot portends a future in which everyone abandons Booz (except for that dude up in the hydraulic lift with the snyper rifle).

  • George B

    Booo!
