Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer

I hate musicals. Call it un-American or, as my family explains, “You’re just a toneless hater,” but I just don’t understand spontaneously breaking into song; I feel similarly about karaoke. But I’ve been listening and singing along to Bleacher Report’s “Let it Go” Frozen parody, “Let It Tank” — as sung by Kobe Bryant — for the last hour, and it’s incredible. Read More »

Following Dust-up, Boozer Says “We All Know [Roy Hibbert’s] Not A Tough Guy”

Roy Hibbert, Carlos Boozer

There was a little skirmish between Roy Hibbert and Carlos Boozer during last night’s tight Pacers-Lakers game. The two played each other often when Boozer was with the Bulls, so they’re familiar enough for some bad blood to have developed. After their brief scuffle last night, Boozer said Hibbert “flops a lot,” and that “he’s not a tough guy.” Read More »

GIF: Kobe Bryant Flips Slick Behind-The-Back Pass To Carlos Boozer For Layup

Kobe Bryant

We don’t see Kobe Bryant the passer enough. His proclivity for hoisting difficult two-point jumpers often gets in the way of potential assists to awaiting teammates that only a player with Mamba’s court sense, vision, and creative flair is capable of making. Every now and then, though, Bryant will embrace his inner- point guard and become the playmaking maven he was as a young Los Angeles Laker. This slick no-look, behind-the-back pass to Carlos Boozer from last night’s game against the Utah Jazz is just such an example. Read More »

GIF: Carlos Boozer Flexes After And-1 Layup…Down 21

Carlos Boozer

The Lakers are frightful to watch, with new coach Byron Scott putting an emphasis on avoiding three-pointers, they’re attempting even more mid-range jumpers than ever before — as inefficient a shot as there is in basketball. Plus, their defense is laughable. Last night they were blown out by the Jazz, who had the worst record in the West last season. Still, Carlos Boozer found time to preen even while down big.

Carlos Boozer Isn’t Done Yet & Plans To Lead In LA

Mitch Kupchak, Carlos Boozer

There are many facets to a person no matter what walk of life they chose to undertake. Nobody is ever just one thing, but when you are an NBA player, on-court performance is often the only thing you are measured by. It defines you and perception often becomes an unfair reality dowsed in hyperbole without the true nature of circumstance given its proper weight.

In some extreme cases, lofty statistics don’t seem to hold enough substance, especially if a lucrative contract is affixed to a player. This has been the reality for Carlos Boozer who holds career averages of 16.6 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists on 52 percent shooting from the floor. He’s been a productive player for 12 seasons and never averaged less than 10 points per game in his career. He’s a two-time All-Star, a gold medalist and one of the best teammates a locker room can possess. Read More »

Report: Boozer Amnesty A “Done Deal”

Carmelo Anthony, Carlos Boozer

The Chicago Bulls have eyes for Carmelo Anthony. But to gain the requisite cap space it will surely take to acquire him, the Bulls need to pull off major salary cap gymnastics by augmenting their roster. The easiest way to begin that process? Using the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer. According to a report, Chicago has finally decided to do just that. Read More »
