Boozer: I'm Better Than David Lee

New, 1 comment

Free-agent forward Carlos Boozer pulled no punches when asked Monday about David Lee and the New York Knicks.

"Absolutely I do. I think he’s a very good, young player though," Boozer said. "I think he’s had a great season and he was the all star this year. I think he has a great upside to him I just think I’m better, but I mean that’s for you guys to debate about, I don’t worry about that kind of stuff.

"I just go out there and play all for my team and try everything I can to win games and win a ring. David Lee is a great young player, a good friend of mine, and of course I wish him the best of luck as well with whatever he does, if he stays in NY or if he also goes elsewhere."

That's not Boozer talkin' smack. That's Boozer, 28, telling what he believes to be the truth. He averaged 19.5 points and 11.2 rebounds last season for a good Utah team. For his career, Boozer averages 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds.  Lee averaged 20.3 points and 11.7 rebounds for the awful Knicks.
