H. Grant not a Boozer Fan

“It will be a long time before I could be a head coach, because I don’t care how much money you get paid.  If you’re not producing more or if I feel you’re hurting the team, especially in the playoffs, I’d bench you.  If Boozer is having an off-game scoring, he has to do other things. You have to rebound and you’ve got to play defense.”

Carlos Boozer did say after Wednesday night’s game his toe was “still hurting” and affecting his elevation “a lot.”

“Well, then sit down.  If you’re that bothered by it, sit down, seriously.  I like Boozer as a person, but if you’re hurt like that, it’s a liability for the team.  I’m pretty sure Taj Gibson would be a very good replacement.  This Bulls team is built where if one guy goes down, he has a good backup.  Where does it say that because you make so much money, you have to play if
you’re not producing?”

“Many times Phil [Jackson] would sit him down, and he was making four million bucks.  I’m sure Boozer is thinking, ‘Man, they’re paying me all this money, and this is the playoffs,’ but stop worrying about all that money and start worrying if you can contribute to a team winning,” he said. “He has to put his ego aside for the betterment of the team.”

Looks like Horace Grant still knows his stuff.
