The Chicago Bulls have seemingly been stringing forward Carlos Boozer along since he decided to disappear in the postseason three years ago and in the subsequent year as well. But although he’s been able to show more heart since then, there are still questions about his clutch ability and that has resulted in limited minutes from Tom Thibodeau in the four quarter of games.
Really, this isn’t anything too new as the Bulls have always had questions about Boozer and his ability to close out games but those frustrations have seemingly come to a head.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Boozer is fed up with Thibodeau and the Bulls over his fourth quarter minute restriction. But while the report states Boozer is mad, it’s pointed out that the atmosphere that Thibodeau has created has Boozer keeping his frustrations in-house rather than wearing it on his sleeves.
That’s why that as angry as forward Carlos Boozer is with Thibodeau about his lack of playing time in the fourth quarter — even more so in these playoffs, according to a source — it stays a ripple in the water rather than becoming a crashing wave.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Boozer being upset with the Bulls but it appears that the separation awaiting in the summer between the two sides is going to be much more mutual than once anticipated.
