Carlos Boozer Looking Forward to Utah Fans’ Boos

Boozer knows the folks who used to cheer him on will boo him lustily when he visits Utah as an opposing player tonight, but Carlos isn’t fazed. In fact, he says the negative energy serves him well. From ESPN: “When it comes to the reception he’s going to hear during Wednesday night’s game at Utah, Bulls forward Carlos Boozer has a simple philosophy he plans to stick to. ‘It’s all Booooz to me,’ he said after Tuesday afternoon’s practice. ‘I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be a fun night.’ … Despite the tension his arrival back in Utah may cause, Boozer welcomes any critics that may shout things in his direction on Wednesday night. ‘You need them to keep you motivated,’ he said. ‘Little do they know, haters motivate. Guys like me take that in stride and use that as fuel … it fuels you. I’m not one of those guys you can hate on and expect me [to be like] ‘Oh, you’re hating on me …’ No, I’m not like that. I get motivated.’”

    UTAH NEEDS A W- One big family- who cares what Utah thinks. Boring a.. team. Go in there kill them on the court and they will shut up. D. Williams needs to get out of there. Your career is rotting away in that city!

    Jazz fans were booing Boozer for like, the last two seasons he was still playing for them, so it’s nothing new to him.
    I still think Millsap (if he plays, he’s listed as probable) is gonna give him the business though. You know dude’s been waiting for that matchup.
    “Oh, you mad cuz I’m stylin’ on you?”

    lol @ “it’s all booz to me”. Advantage of having that last name.

    Deron is gonna the world he’s still the best pg in the business, and Booze will choke like every single year in the playoffs…. just watch him disappear!!!

  • Red

    He’s gonna the world! Oh shut up, D. Rose is way better.

  • Think Tank

    I hope Milsap plays and just does work on Boozer and his history of moving on to bigger paychecks … but haha, “it’s all booz to me”

    Why would they boo him? He played hard for them, taking them to the playoffs. They should applaud him.. Guys change teams from time to time, it happens.

    He also sat out… and sat out and sat out and sat out with things the fans thought he could have played through.

    At least he can defend himself by using words not in the court.

    Boozer should be used to it anyway. He used to get it from Cleveland.

  • holiday

    Man Milsap totally outclassed Boozer tonight, to bad the refs decided this game!

  • Oh Nose

    @holiday, booz did choke, although so did Deron when it “mattered most”, man he must still be the “best pg in the business”
