Let’s take a look at the obvious; Carlos Boozer has not looked like Carlos Boozer since coming to the Bulls. One reason is that he has had to guard some pretty talented power forwards in the East. Yes he may say that his foot is hurting, but when you are a big man everything hurts when the season gets rolling. Fans don’t really know from night to night what they are going to get from Boozer.
I think the solution is simple. He is not the same without a pass first point guard. I know the floodgates are opening about Derrick Rose being an elite point guard but the fact still remains he is a shoot first and pass second guy. When you are a big man you are used to being fed and getting one or two touches a quarter are just not enough.
