Jazz fans are ridiculous. Just because Stockton and Malone were loyal to the
Jazz, doesn't mean you should expect everone else to be. They were the last of
the crowd that stayed with the same team their entire career. Now its very rare
because there is a lot more money on the line. I believe Stockton and Malone
made a combine $8 million dollars in 96-97, Boozer will probably be able to sign
a contract for $15 million (I think he gets payed $11 right now?) Thats a
$4million dollar raise. Why wouldn't you do it? Think of your own work
situation, would you leave home for $4 million dollars?
If Carlos is hurting that bad, why does he travel with the team? Leave him in
SLC to re-coup. Give that place on the team plane to someone that is really
I heard in their comments that they defended his right to speak but not what he
said. I think we are all tired of this Boozer. The other players on the team
just have enough CLASS to keep inside the locker room.
Go sit out half the season on someone else's payroll.
BOOZER: Just pack up and go why don't you?
And we grown up fans have a right to say what we think of the situation as well.
See ya Booze!
There must be something the players said that didn't make the paper but I just
don't see how these remarks can be taken as defending Boozer. Williams said it
was "no surprise." If I say that Dennis Rodman doing something insane was "no
surprise" to me it doesn't necessarily mean I have his back. If I were his
teammate, I'd be a little put out to hear him say he's for sure getting a raise
when we're struggling and just struggled for a comeback road win. The only
player 'for sure' getting a raise should be Millsap.
Maybe he should live a life like Austin Collie!!??Magic happens, and the
lord will helpLove,Austin
NOTICE how Harpring used the word OBVIOUSLY three times in his statement to the
press...similrly to Booze's own usage of the word in his statements...I think
Harp was jabbin Booze's lack of vocabulary & speaking a little protest of
Booze's crappy response. It would appear to be an OBVIOUS jab...to me.
Just because boozer is large in stature obviously does not mean he is a "grown
End of story. I'm sick and tired of "grown men" in the NBA and elsewhere who
say one thing and do another, then are paid millions in the exchange (read
Congress and the Wall Street bailout).
