Boozer has missed 114 games during his time with the Jazz or 1/3 of the games he
is supposed to have played in. (And of course he was still PAID for all of
those missed games!) If I only showed up for work 2/3's of the days I was
supposed to be there I sure wouldn't be picking up a paycheck. I would be
FIRED! The Jazz need to trade him now and get someone useful for our team. Get
Milsap a good backup or something, we need a team player.
Re: magnusI love your glass is half-full mentality. You are right.
The Jazz are better with Boozer. In the short run I want Boozer back and I want
to see what the Jazz are capable of doing when he and the rest of the players
are healthy. In the long run Boozer will go for greener (money)
pastures. For him, it may not be so much about a chance for the ring, but the
money. That is his business. For me, the long run is that the Jazz need to
re-sign Millsap as their PF for years to come. The team needs to be built
around Williams and Millsap is a GREAT piece to that puzzle. Keep
the comments coming and go JAZZ!
for all those who want to trade boozer, we were 8-4 with boozer starting and
millsap off the bench. now when boozer is out and millsap starts, we are 7-7.
now millsap is a great player, but what matters is how many wins in the win
column, not points. but right now millsap is not getting the w's we need.
The Jazz need to trade Booz, Almond, and Fess for Vince Carter and it works on
ESPN trade machine. Booz, Almond, and Fess are all expiring contracts which the
Nets want for the year of the Lebron and plus the Nets need a stronger front
court. The Jazz in return gets an all-star, more media coverage, a shooter, and
a zone killer. Imagine D-Will and Vince in the back court and Ronny, P-Mills,
and Okur in the front!!! Thats one awesome team. Kevin do the trade its a
I have been floating ideas for moving Boozer but I think I am going to change my
tune. I have always thought that Boozer was a great player who played marginal
defense and withought a doubt the Jazz are better with him than without him. So
I don't think the Jazz should trade him, or even talk about trading him, right
now.I am actually really exited to see what this Jazz team is like
at full strength with a set rotation. I mean think about it.Starters:WilliamsBrewerMilesBoozerOkur2nd UnitKnightKorverHarpringAKMillsapMiles need to give a more consistent effort but I think he is a great
fit on the first unit and AK has been palying great off the bench. Williams is
getting back to form, he will be his old self as soon as Boozer is back in the
lineup.I think the 4 man front court rotation of Okur Boozer Millsap
and AK is solid and if Boozer will commit to give just a little bit more effort
I think they can actually be good defensively.So, I'm not going to
do any more trade talk until Febuary.
Tim had me confused for a few seconds at the start of this article; it is now
Tuesday morning in L.A. In the Mountain Time Zone it is early afternoon as I
write this comment. Here is what Tim wrote to start this article...BOSTON "He (Boozer) rode a bike while the Jazz held their shootaround Tuesday
morning, and he didn't play when they lost 100-91 (to?) the Boston Celtics on
Tuesday night."Is it Groundhog Day? Are the Jazz going to play
Boston again tonight? That would be three games in three nights (they play NJ
Wednesday). I think that's against NBA rules. And is tonight's game fixed?
(Tim already knows the outcome of the game on Tuesday morning/afternoon).Anyways, it would be great to see Boozer play for the team soon. This
is such a strange set of circumstances. Because of the contract situation
(Boozer having the option to get out of it) it feels as though he's just sitting
out indefinitely. Does anyone know if another player has suffered a similar
injury or the same one? And how long did it take for them to return? Just
curious.Go Jazz!!! And the daily calendar!!!
Can we trade Boozer for Phoenix's trainer?
haha brad miller is hurt more than booz!!! but i agree get rid of harpering he
is the worst player on the jazz roster
Trade him!!!! Send Booze and Harp to Miami for Marion and change or send Booze
and Collins to Sacramnto for Brad Miller & M Moore. Either way everybody gets
what they want!! Win Win type of stuff!!
we wont see boozer in a jazz jersey again!!!
want the Jazz to be healthy again we need to fire briggs and get a trainer who
can do their job. Briggs cant get these guys healthy the only thing he seems
capable of doing is spraying a can on things and watching his gut get bigger.
Get a trainer who can get our guys on the court.
Didn't you all listen to Boozer!! It doesn't matter how long he sits out
because when he comes back the Jazz are going to "Run away" with the Division.
He'll just sit out as long as he wants but when he comes back the Jazz are going
to "be a beast!" Boozer is overly confident and always content with how
things are going. That's why he's reached his peak and will never get better.
It's sad for a guy that could dominate if he only had a little more drive!
He has corrupted D-Will ever since day one. This crap about D-Will and me was
bad to begin with. This is no ones team, its everyones team. When he does return
all your going to see is the same old two man game, high pick and roll, after
high pick and roll. Another thing is how often do you see skinny players excell
in this league? A few sure but its really about strength, agilty and heart. We
have too many skinny wanna-bees, A.K., C.J., Brewer, Korver ect. Couple that
with heartless big guys and you have what we got, a soft team. There are only 3
players with any heart on this team- Harpring, Milsap and D-Will.
Milsap is proving he's just as good at Boozer. No lies, hard work, and less
I am suprised he didnt tear an ACL. It is a strained tendon people. Of course
Boozer is going to down play it. That is one thing he needs to do is quite
saying "every thing is ok, my knee feels great". Behind the scenes he probably
has a tough time with it. I would rather he wait til he is as close to 100%
than play hurt like D Will and let Rondo wipe the floor with him. Once they
both get healthy watch out Western Conference!
I can't wait to see Boozer in another team's uniform. If a knee is feeling
great, you should play. That's what professionals do, Carlos! Hopefully the Jazz
will get rid of him before the end of the season, then they will have a real
shot at making a playoff run.
When Boozer finally does return, Sloan should make him back up Millsap. That
would be AWESOME. :)
Actually, Carlos is killing us in two ways. First by being out and hurting the
Jazz' front court depth. Second, by allowing Milsap more time to post 12
consecutive double doubles. Wouldn't you want to be Paul's agent right now!
Milsap's price tag is going up the longer Carlos is out. Thanks Carlos! I think
I will follow your example and call in sick for work today!!
Can anyone help me here? Since Boozer's arrival in Utah, does anyone know the
number of potential games he could have played, versus the number he has
actually played? Just wondering.
I'll take Milsap over Boozer any day. Gone are the iron man days of Stockton
and Malone. OUCH! I think I just broke a nail, I think I'll take sick leave the
rest of the year.
He is really killing my stats by being a wimp
I find it rather ironic that Paul Pierce injures his knee and says he'll be
ready to go for the next game. Then you have Boozer who says his knee feels
great, yet he is still sitting out.
my knee never was hurt. It feels great, but I figure I'll watch my teammates
play and lose without me, so when I get back and we make a huge run I will be
rewarded with one huge contract in Miami. I'm not dumb, I'm pretty smart DON'T
This is 3 years ago all over again. you ask me he's trade bait. I'll take Paul
and a servicable big to spell him over this injury prone guy who does what us
normal people don't do.
