Boozer: I Think LeBron Is Going to Stay
Free-agent-to-be Carlos Boozer sounded intrigued about joining Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks, but believes if he comes to New York, it won’t be in a star tandem with LeBron James.
Boozer and James were Cleveland teammates for King James’ rookie year. Boozer left Cleveland the first chance he got — for a multi-year contract with Utah in 2004. But Boozer doesn’t think James will leave his hometown.
"I think LeBron’s going to stay," Boozer said before scoring 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting with 14 rebounds in Utah’s 103-98 victory last night over the Knicks at EnergySolutions Arena.
"That’s my gut. They’re doing everything they can to build him a championship. His biggest thing is winning a ring. I think his best chance to win a ring is probably where he’s at."
