Oh man I would love to play on the same team as Dwight "Superman" as well, who wouldnt......... Then I could make a good living and not have to worry about much...

Jazzsmack

If the Jazz want to win a championship,

(and it looks like they don't really care)

they must get of rid the over-rated, i'm only in it for me, boozer.

Boozer is an oh-no (olympian in name only)

His college coach coached the team and even he hardly ever played boozer,


that should tell you everything you need know about his game,

(that and his lack of denfense and his showing he is all about the almightly dollar.)

BOO HOO

Boozer ain't worth 18 million!

wallofvoodoo

If he ain't careful, he going to wind up with Europe as his only option.

Jazz Cop

I bet boozer gets a contract starting at around 15 a year and ends at around 19, his numbers speak for themselves, and besides, he's a good team guy who wouldn't have a problem fitting in most places.

Jazzsmack and boo hoo are now thiking they are capable of dictating salaries in the NBA. Jazz S would have us dump our PF who is one of 2 PF's in the entire league/world that perform at a 20/10 level consistently. If the Jazz are in it to win then Boozer remains a piece of the puzzle.

When the Jazz can talk about replacing Boozer with another person of equal or greater stats then boot Boozer out the door, til then grow up and recognize it is not a boys club but a basketball team/business.

Too bad about Maynor, we should have pitched Price out the door and kept our young stud.

cubmec

so long as Boozer is even thinking about playing for another location....he'll never give Utah 100%.....and he hasn't been giving 100% for a long time.

Greed, Greed, Greed

Just coming into the last season of a 68 thats 68 mil contract this turkey wants to amp up the market for his services. What a joke. Hopefully we can trade him somewhere where we can get a little return and put him on a losing team for the rest of his career. This me only and money attitude is what has put this country in the toilet. I'm sick of these twerps and the selfish mentalities. Just get out of here Booze!

Doug

If we trade or lose Boozer without replacing him with someone as effective then in effect we are going to keep Deron here playing only for money and not for a chance at a championship.

Take away Boozers numbers this season and we lose 10 of our last 16 games. If I were Deron and if Boozer leaves then I am out the door and off to a contender rather than stay and feed Brewer so he can miss.

I think when Boozer leaves that soon after Sloan will be out the door followed by Williams and then the entire makeup of the Jazz will change, but it all precipitates by Boozer leaving.

scodyshootfight (KC)

Doug has it wrong. A consistent 20/10 doesn't mean anything. Boozer has proved it, and Elton Brand has proved it.

Boozer is stupid for opening his mouth again and talking about making max money and playing with Superman or Wade. I got news for ya Booz; you aint gettin no max contract! I say the Jazz should either trade him now or punish him the rest of the season for opting in. If they benched him the rest of the year, he wouldn't get more than the mid-level in free agency.

The Truth

If Booz couldn't even get 12 million last year, what makes you think he is going to get more than that with the salary cap going down again? Lebron yes, Bosh yes? Booz oh no. The Jazz probably think they have a shot at signing him next year if they want? I'd be surprised if Booz got traded.

Re Doug

I hope your right. First Booze then Sloan, what a day that will be, hopefully Brewer and Miles are on the same flight!

Why now

Wait until after the season to chatter, this only shows he doesn't care much about anything but Boozer!

sparks24

If Boozer leaves the Jazz are back to 42-42!!!!!! Period. You so called Jazz fans that think the Jazz are better off without Boozer have not watched the last 20 games and no nothing about basketball.

Please keep Boozer

so the Jazz will be mediocre for another four years. Watching the Lakers own the Jazz for another four years will be too sweet.

Miles

Everyone is forgetting that Boozer is hurt a lot of the time. Other team's are going to look at that number before paying out 15 million for this guy. When he is healthy, he is a great player. When he is hurt, he is out a long long time.

Boozer may be begging the Jazz to take him for 10 million

To the Jazz

I have stopped watching the Jazz. The 20+ years of same ol' same ol' same ol' groundhog day seasons have become too much for me to stand. Booze is no different than any pro athlete. Ungrateful for the opportunity to make the money he does. I am done with pro sports, I would rather watch Ybu.

Not to mention the NBA is becoming a groundhog day league. Lakers, Lakers, Lakers Lakers. Gee, I wonder who will win the NBA title? Oh yeah, the Lakers will. Fast forward to 2020 after same results for 2010-2019. Gee, I wonder who will win the NBA title? Oh yeah, the Lakers will. The only thing missing is the NBA adopting Sonny and Cher's song "I got you babe".

DCH

Of course Boozer would be willing to re-sign with the Jazz! As long as they are willing to pay him the most money, he'll be here collecting a pay check. I'm sure his agent has him convinced that the reasons he didn't have any teams wanting him last summer are the poor economy & the fact that teams were saving up for 2010. The real reason why is because Boozer isn't worth a max contract and all the teams' GMs know it. He (and many other players banking on free agency this summer) is going to have an eye-opening experience when he sees the low-ball (in his mind) offers coming in.

Cbizzle

Not a snowballs chance in you know where Boozer will be back next year. As far as being traded, if the Jazz get a good opportunity they'll take it, if they don't they won't. Why else dump 13mill? Boozer is good and the jazz won't trade him for nothing. What still makes me sick as a jazz fan is AK's contract. If anyone wants to complain about someones overpriced contract lets start with AK. What happened to him anyway? He used to do well, now he is just subpar. Makes me sick to think about.
