Carlos Boozer
As told to Chris Mannix
May 21, 2007
An NCAA champion at Duke, the second Alaskan player to make the NBA, the guy who left Cleveland wanting (the Cavs say he bolted as a free agent in 2004 after verbally agreeing to stay), Utah Jazz power forward Carlos Boozer is now in his first NBA playoffs—and cleaning up. He was averaging 24.7 points in the postseason, knocking down 34 in Game 4 of Round 2 to help Utah take a three-games-to-one lead over Golden State. At 6'9" and 266 pounds Boozer is a bruiser (20 rebounds against the Warriors on May 7), and at 25 he is a cornerstone of the Jazz's—and perhaps the NBA's—future.
