Did any of you see Boozer play in the summer league game on Tuesday?? He looks SO MUCH different...he's lost 25 pounds since the college season and is in incredible shape. The aspect of his game that he's improved most on is his rebounding. I saw him get up for rebounds, and he is jumping much higher than he ever did at Duke. He still is somewhat weak defensively, but I think he's proven he has the work ethic to improve. On top of that, he has a chip on his shoulder, and wants to prove to everyone that he should have gone in the first round. I could see Boozer getting a lot of time off the bench, and even starting every once in a while.

Great reasoning....great explanation...I know Carlos Boozer isn't a very good defender, but he would do much better against quick power forwards than Mihm would. Mihm is and should be a center, not a power forward.

what i think will allow him to succeed besides dropping the weight, is his great knowledge of the game, the one summer league game i watched, against memphis i think, he seemed to be everywhere, he dribbled the ball full court and took it in and flushed it left handed, it was an impressive display by someone whos not known to do that.

I agree. Boozer's going to be a good player in the NBA.

I haven't seen Boozer play in the Summer League, but I knew that at Duke he was undersized for a Center, but you can get away with that in college and especially at Duke!!!!

In the pros, he is way to slow to be a forward...Like I said I haven't seen him in the Summer League, so WHO KNOWS???

I do agree that it is summer league and not the real deal, but as long as he is in Cleveland, he will play because they SUCK!!!

Stop referring to people as white guys. Chris Mihm is 7 feet tall and a center. He was good in college and SUCKS in the pros...BUT that is why he is on the Cleveland team!!!

Boozer = Beast

Mihm = Stiff White Guy
Why do you have to call Mihm a stiff white guy. Couldn't you just call him a stiff. Or are you just assuming because the guys white he will never amount to anything. If I called Boozer another lazy black guy people would give me hell. Next time why don't you give some reasoning rather then an off-color comment.

Mihm is playing PF, not C. He was a C in college, like Boozer, but both are better suited for PF.....

You guys base WAY too much stuff on summer league. It means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Kelvin CATO DOMINATED summer league a few years ago, look where he is now!:rolleyes:

Do I have to give examples of stiff white guys? Ostertag, Collier, Travis Knight, Maculloch, mihm, Potapenko, deqlerc, geiger, Montross, Jeff Foster, Austin Croshere, Pryzbilla...

Must I go on?

Well it is good to see that you know about the Bench players, because in reading your other posts, you don't know JACK about the Real Players!!!!!!

MacCulloch is stiff? hmm, he made it to the finals, and did MUCH better than a stiff this season......Do you actually watch the NBA, or just automatically assume a 7 foot white guy, or any white guy for that matter, is a stiff?:upset:

Malakian don't get MAD because a White guy is blessed to be 7 feet tall and makes it to the NBA based on size. Many of other races of people due the same thing but we just label them STIFFS like they are...No need to make it racial.

Anyways, stop comparing them to SHAQ...Let's make a list of people that SHAQ makes look like a STIFF...

Duncan, Robinson, Mourning....You know what, I will be here for FRIEKIN EVER doing this.

The point is you don't know what you are talking about...Bring up some good talk about the stars, and not all the guys you see riding the pine, or coming in to get their 6 fouls on SHAQ!!!!
