Found April 12, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
The Bulls and Knicks were forced to play small ball on Thursday night thanks to a wrath of injuries to both teams.  The Bulls did have Carlos Boozer to battle the boards where he matched up under the rim plenty of times with Carmelo Anthony who had a season-high 19 rebounds.  Boozer countered with 15 of his own, but Melo doesn’t think the Bulls forward knows what he’s doing down there sometimes. According to Al Iannazzone of Newsday: “Boozer is Boozer,” Anthony said. “Sometimes I don’t think Boozer be knowing what he be doing out there as far as clearing out and the way he plays. He’s so wide, shoulders is wide, elbows just be flaring. I think sometimes he doesn’t know what he’s doing out there.”
