I had hoped they would pick Ramsey as well. However, if we end up with two pro bowlers in this draft then it's a huge success. If Elliot produces 80 percent of what demarco did, and they hold off the first four games then they could win the division. The defense was pretty bad that year as well. I was only hoping for a top twenty defense last year, and they were 16th. With scandrick back, a second year for Jones And the suspended pass rushers along with lee healthy. If the cowboys can have a top 15 defense this year by week 8, we can win the NFC east. Nothing was really giving us a super bowl this year. With a three year window I think a healthy romo has, the pieces added could certainly help make that happen before this decade ends. Am I stoked about the draft? No. But I'm not pulling my hair out either. If everything clicks, a ten win team and maybe a playoff win could be a step towards where we want to be. Hopefully we'll add some average vets. If this was difficult to read, sorry. New garbage phone.
Utah Jazz Power Forward Carlos Boozer is a two time NBA All-Star and member of last year's All-NBA Third team. Boozer also won a Bronze medal in Athens during the 2004 Olympic games. Since his 2002-03 NBA All-Rookie team season, Boozer has finished the season among the league's top ten performers in field goal percentage five times and top ten rebounders twice.
He is known for his strength, rebounding and offensive skill set. ESPN.com, lists Boozer among the "game's best post players" and among the best at scoring (or "finishing") under the basket with either hand Boozer credits his father for helping him develop his ambidextrous ability.
I recently sat down with him for an interview and opened by asking him to describe his Gold Medal winning experience in Beijing.
"I'll tell you the same thing everyone is going to tell you, it was amazing, we had a goal set in mind and I think for all of us, the players, coaches, staff all included it was probably the biggest thing we've been a part of in sports," Boozer responded.
I asked Booze if he would do it again in 2012...
"Absolutely, it's an honor anytime you get to wear USA across your chest,"�and later to describe what it's like taking the court against a former.
"We're like brothers, all of us have a special bond; we're all very close. We stay in touch and talk all the time now, just because of the experience we went through, and the team that brought back pride to USA basketball," Boozer continued.
I then asked: What are your thoughts on Chicago as a sports town and Olympic host?
"Huge sports town, great fans very committed, great venue, great to have it here in the states, we haven't had it since Atlanta. And I think it would be well received, we'd have a great turnout here I think, other countries love to come play here"
It helps that the international icon of basketball, Michael Jordan made his name for himself there...
"Absolutely, and I had a chance to see the plan, they have a great plan for it too."
