Bulls’ Pau Gasol has closing role on his mind

Former Bulls forward Carlos Boozer should feel fortunate that he never has been teammates with Pau Gasol. The truth would have hurt. The veteran forward was asked Saturday if he ever has played for a coach who sat him in the fourth quarter of games, and he was brutally honest. “No, no, that’s not a good sign when you’re put in that position because the coach doesn’t rely...

Carlos Boozer Flexes Bicep After And-1 While Down 21 Points (Video)

Well, this pretty much sums up the state of the Lakers. Lakers were down 21 points to the Utah Jazz in a preseason game, but that didn’t stop former Jazz player Carlos Boozer from trying to stunt a little after an and-1. He went all out, too.

Can Lakers’ Carlos Boozer have bounce-back season?

No matter how much Carlos Boozer gushes about the 90-degree weather he has enjoyed thus far in Los Angeles, there’s another reason why his new residency has become a far more pleasant experience than being in Chicago.
