    I think the league is so much more entertaining when you have low post players of this ilk. Can you imagine what Boozer would do against the Rockets small ball lineup? Watching these highlights made me think that Boozer is an interesting comp for Zion. Obviously Zion is a rich man's modern version, but Boozer dominated inside with a combination of speed, strength, and athleticism while being undersized and a sub-par defender in space.

    I really don't want to because I kind of feel like Boozer never really wanted to be here but at this point I give the edge to him over the Bogester.

    From 2004-06 Boozer missed the equivalent of an entire season of basketball due to a strained hamstring and sore foot. I think he eventually came around and was usually good and sometimes even great - but at the same time I never felt like he was fully on-board with the franchise either.

    Boozer was a skilled player but he didn't really care.

    Wow. This is pretty early. However, if you take into account price, role, effectiveness, and fit, he seems to be one of the best timed signings in our history. We need to talk about this in summer 2021 to get a true read on this though.

    My bad, I will get on board. In the pole after his next game winner (hopefully against the Clippers) I will be sure to vote that Bogey is the best PF the Jazz have ever had.

    Boozer gets points for agreeing to a sign and trade which returned Utah a valuable trade exception. My understanding is he was under no obligation to do this (see Gordon Hayward's exit to Boston).

    No he wasn't obligated but from what I remember we could offer him more ($ or years or both? Can't remember exactly) than another team could just signing him, hence the sign and trade for him to maximize his dollars.

    So boozer was more about the money and Hayward was more about behaving like a petulant child because we let him become a restricted FA a few years before. **** Hayward.

    **** boozer too for that matter.

    Apparently yall forgot how much you bashed Booz and Memo for their matador defense.

    Not only that. Booz already had his best years with us and was on his way to steady decline when he signed with Chicago. It was apparent that we as an organization wanted to go a different direction at the time and had mutually decided to part ways.

    Haywho was everything opposite of that. His best years were still ahead of him and we pretty much decided that we wanted to build a team around him and threw all the money we could in order to keep him. But then he decided to ditch us the last sec and go be a bitch in Boston instead.

    Your memory is swiss cheese. We could have offered him an additional year, but Boozer neither received an additional year or more salary for agreeing to the TPE. We sent the Bulls a protected second rounder to entice them, but it was still nice of them to agree to it (Ainge would not with Hayward). Boozer did it with no additional compensation. And he betrayed CLE to join Utah. :). He's OK in my book.

    Not only did he ditch CLE and Lebron for us, he fully committed to us by signing a 6 yr deal too. That's basically the entirety of his prime locked up with us. People said he didn't care but he was averaging 20+10 for us while “not caring”. I mean could anyone seriously expect more? He got owned by Pau Gasol but Pau kinda did the same thing to Garnett in 2010 finals, so I wouldn't really blame Booz for that either
