Hats off to Boozer. He gets way too much scorn from Jazz fans. (I count myself
as one.) Why do some of us feel more passionately about basketball than we do
about life and death, suffering and disease? Basketball is only a game. For
Boozer, it's a means to an end. He can make unbelievable amounts of money for
half a year's "work", and he gets to help other people in the process. He is
using his talent to improve other people's lives who don't have the means to do
All the way from Juneau to where I am today. Yes he's probaly worked hard
somewhere, sometime, but he was blessed with a big athletic body and all he had
to do as a youngster was play the game and I would think personal pride would
drive you to success if your blessed with the tools. His lack of work and
running at the mouth have also put him in the box he now lives in also. These
camps are no more than a supposed star just showing up and relying on others to
donate and do the work, I can't put much into the stars sacrifices!
Is the camp about "how to become commercially success"? Sign me in Dr Booz.
this basketball camp will teach him how to not run his mouth and how to play
defense better than a 5th grader
Note: Its all about himself again.Why charge youngsters 150.00 bucks for
an appearance.Howmany youths will he need to sign up to make a dent in the
disease's programs.I look at it this way. He just got 12.6 million.If he donates 1 million and saves the air fare, the program will have mcuh
more money and the youngsters will not look up to a malcontent and cancer.
Personally, I would like to thank Mr.Boozer for thinking of others, those
affected with the illness, and bringing awareness to those of us that are
uneducated about the Sickle Cell disease. Ask your self the question, how much
do you know about SCD, have you thought about volunteering at your local agency,
it's not all about money, but as we know medical care is very expensive. Have
you read the headlines lately of the daily news regarding health care how in
many cases it has tripled. Instead of being on the side lines get in the game,
and just remember it's us today it could be you or your family member tomorrow
with any disease. Be careful how you point fingers, remember three are pointing
back at U!
This man is trying to spread the word on a serious disease and all a few of you
can do is put him down and make statements about is ethics on the basketball
court. If you thought it was just a game you wouldn't care about what he did on
the court. If you knew how much little money was spent on SCD you
would not be making statements about $150 fee & you don't know how much Mr.
Boozer personally spends on the cause. Educate yourself on the
disease and the cause not the person. If you don't what to help that is cool
but don't hurt the cause.
