Default Jazz owner blasts Boozer

Quote:
Jazz owner Larry Miller slammed Boozer in his weekly radio appearance on KFAN 1320, saying, "It's one of the top 10 stupidest things I've heard an NBA player do in 20 years."

Miller said Boozer's timing detracted from the Jazz's victory over New Jersey and came not only as he has missed 15 games with a strained left quadriceps tendon but after he missed 80 games early on after coming to the Jazz.

Those memories are hard to shake, with Miller saying, "a lot of people are still suspicious about that, a lot of fans and stuff, and we've covered for him and protected him, justifiably."

Miller made his comments from the hospital after a week in which he missed two Jazz games with continued health problems. He also said the Jazz a couple of years ago agreed to trade Boozer to find a team in a city with a better medical fit for his oldest son, Carmani.

At the time, Carmani was battling sickle cell disease, which was made more difficult by Salt Lake City's altitude. Boozer asked to be traded to four teams (presumably at sea level) and Miller said he agreed before Carmani underwent a bone marrow transplant that cured him of the disease

LOL at this guy getting mad about Boozer doing to him what Boozer did to Cleveland.

When Booze left the Cavs, I was one of those that defended his right to do so. I didn't believe that he had a secret handshake agreement with Cav management, but this does make that look more suspect. Still, can't say I care. It's business, and all Miller is doing is hurting the Jazz's bidding position, unless they plan on trading him now, which would make sense.

If he does end up leaving the Jazz, they have the coaching and young talent to overcome it. They quickly overcame losing Stockton/Malone, and as nice as Boozer is, I trust Sloan as a coach to move on.

What they need to is trade him as soon as they can while he has some value. Paul Millsap is playing great. He's not as good as Boozer, but he's not that far off, and he's younger. He's 23, while Boozer is 27. He's putting up 18/11 as a starter, compared to about 20/11 that Boozer usually puts up. Add to the fact that they don't know what Boozer is doing and don't want him to walk away for nothing, and its probably smart to trade him. Maybe it would be best to go after a SF or SG, such as Caron Butler? Rip Hamilton? Shawn Marion?

It will be funny when some team makes him a nice offer this summer, and then becomes the third team to get Boozered.

The guy can't be trusted or relied upon, and you need to factor that in to what you're willing to pay him. You can say "it's just business," but most of the businessmen I look up to are honest and trustworthy, and stick to doing deals only with others who are also honest and trustworthy.

If Warren Buffett can become the richest man alive that way, then Boozer could have gotten through an NBA career that way as well. Just chose not to.

If it looks like the Magic are making a title run, I'd really have to think about it.
