Also the fact that we drafted him and the amount of expectation placed on him added to that.
Ball moves better with him in the game.
As much as Al is pissing me off I'm almost longing for the days of Boozer.
Until I remember Boozer's "defense" which makes Al look like the reincarnation of Bill Russell.

Um. Boozer is LIGHT YEARS ahead of Al. It's not even close. Boozer has won EVERYWHERE he has been, Al had NEVER won anything of any significance.
If you were a GM and chose AL of Boozer, you would be fired very quickly. If Boozer had a Favors or Ostertag playing next to him we would be pining for more statues for him and Deron and Sloan would still be drooling on our sideline.
Al is a terrible player, and a terrible on court teammate. He is Stephon Marbury.
When we changed Boozer for Jefferson we were -14 wins.
When Chicago picked up Boozer they picked up 21 wins.
