With Carlos Boozer celebrating his New Year's with nearly three weeks of much-improved play — so much so that some people seriously think he should be an All-Star — the Bulls 101 staff takes a swing at whether he'll be able to keep it up and what, if anything, should change with regard to his future with the team. Enjoy.
Avi Saini: His play so far is just a mirage. Since Boozer joined Chicago, we’ve seen him play 162 regular season games, 184 games total factoring in playoffs games. During this time, we’ve seen the highs and lows of Boozer’s game but nothing consistent either way. Until recently that is. In the past 10 games, Boozer has posted very efficient double-doubles in nine of them. I won’tlie, that’s impressive. But given his up and down play throughout the season and the poor three games before his recent resurgence, in which he logged single digit points and rebounds, the past games tell me this is nothing more than a hot streak. As much as I’d like for this play to continue I don’t expect it to last too much longer, especially with none of the point guards running the pick and roll correctly (except Teague but that’s a discussion for another time).
