Carlos Boozer: ‘I Definitely Plan on Playing Overseas’

Carlos Boozer will be hooping next year, regardless of the NBA’s labor situation. He tells ESPN that he plans to play overseas should League games get cancelled (cue many Bulls fans probably hoping that he stays there for good): “I think as players we have to look at this lockout as an unfortunate challenge, but one that can create other unique and positive opportunities,’ he said. ‘When I was part of Team USA that won Olympic Gold in Beijing, that experience changed my life in incredible ways. If the NBA season gets delayed or postponed, I plan on using those months to experience something similar to what I did in the summer of 2008. That’s why, if the lockout continues, I definitely plan on playing overseas.’ Boozer declined to say whether he already had a deal in place or a specific country he was targeting, but a source indicated that the reference to Beijing reflects an inclination to play in China.”

    That way he can take his defensive deficiencies to a team that plays zone to cover up his lackluster play.

    the bulls have pretty much kept a lid on it and now this clown has to make this statement. he needs to work on staying in shape and staying healthy,
    he also needs to correcting the flaws that prevented the bulls from advancing further.. i highly doubt he would try and play elsewhere because one injury and the bulls are free from his overbloated contract anyway.

    Go overseas,and when you arrive back to the USA, make your first stop Orlando and tell Dwight you want to swap places.Most over rated player this side of Christian Laettner.

    well Boozer is already injury prone, so Bulls fan should hope he goes oveseas, because I’m sure by game 5 overseas the bulls will def. be able to void his contract.

    “I definitely plan on signing a huge contract overseas and only playing half the games”

    I can’t stand Boozer since ’04. It seems like everything this guy does is about the money. He needs to get healthy.

    Side note: How about instead of playing overseas, all these players go back to uni and take an introductory economics class and approach the collective bargaining agreement negotiations with some actual educated insight.
