    Boozer was a very good player for the Jazz. 20/10 every night. That is when he wasn't hurt. That's the big bugaboo with Booz in Utah. Too much time in street clothes. As far as his interaction with the media? I really don't care about that. It's what happens on the court that matters.
    I'll be at the game tonight and I won't Boo the Booz, besides Boo sounds just like the old BOOOOz chant, so it's pointless really.

    Never cared for Boozer. Like Korver and Brewer and wish they were still with the Jazz. It would be great to see Utah use this as motivation and play a great game.

    It should be a great game tonight! He's doing well in Chicago and has stayed healthy after the suitcase accident. We have moved on and so have the Chicago Jazz.

    millsap diden't replace boz he was already here. when millsap and boz played together wich was most of the time closed 99 percent of the games when boz played millsap was at the 4 boz at the 5. only thing changed is the 5. jefferson replaced boz. i think millsap is better on offence this year than last. def is another ? last year boz had no def millsap had to play his man and boz man. boz concentrated on off millsap on def. worked preety good untill we played teams with 2 7 footers. hard for a 6-8 to play 2 7 footers. same this year jefferson not much on def. only problem is paul is asked to do more on the off. cain't score all the points and play all the def. you see were that got him leg messed up hand messed up. main thing he still plays boz would be out for his hand 2 weeks another 2 for his leg. i think we all know sap will be out ther limping up and down the court. boz wouldn't want to play hurt and mess up his numbers

    @Old Timer

    I don't see how a players standards have anything to do at all with the Jazz. You think we got rid of Boozer because he has tattoos or Korver because he might drink on occasion? Absolutely not.

    If you are suggesting that we were a contender with Boozer than you are SORELY mistaken. Just check out the last five years.

    There is one thing I can guarantee Utah Jazz fans. If you ever have a "real" contending team for an NBA title, you will have a player or two who more than likely won't fit your supposed squeaking clean LDS standards. Which way do you want it?

    Boozer has talent, you can't say he does not, but he just never connected with Jazz fans. I think he lost a lot of fans when he started talking about money and getting a raise and free agency. I think Korver was a shot in the arm when we traded for him and sent Gordon Girececk to Philly, Korver provided a scoring spark. Trading Brewer is still a head scratcher??? Brewer is my favorite player of the three players mentioned by far, he was drafted by the Jazz, he got his break from the Jazz, I honestly hope he has a good welcome back tonight from Jazz fans. I have had this game circled on my calendar all season long, see you at ESA, lets go Jazz!

    There is no doubt of how great Boozer was. He will be the first one to tell you. I hope that he brought his psychiatrist with him on the trip from Chicago.

    I wonder if the Jazz are missing Boozer?

    Millsap who was waiting in the wings has not had 3 great games this season so he is not heir apparent.

    Jefferson is thrilled when he gets 7 rebounds a night and cannot spell or defend anything that ryhmes with pick and roll.

    On the offense Boozer was feared by opponents, now the Jazz have a teddy bear where Boozer used to be.

    In the last minute shots only Boozer and DWill wanted the ball. Now only D Will wants the ball for the Jazz.

    The Jazz do miss him.

    The whining fans who thought Boozer was injured too often overlook AK who has been injured a ton in the past 3 years and gets paid 50% more than the Jazz ever paid Boozer.

    Sloan loved to have Boozer on his team. When the Jazz went to any stadium in the NBA Sloan knew the Jazz had a great chance of winning, with exception of the Lakers.

    When the Jazz go now Sloan has to look to Bell or CJ or Jefferson, thus far that equation has proven to be missing half the time.

    Hopefully he can get to the game safely so he can hear if the boo or not.

    I mean he could trip over a suitcase and hurt himself or pull a tummy muscle throwing the ball in.

    A lot could happen between now and tomorrow.
