As a surprise to no one, the Chicago Bulls used the amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, which effectively ended his four-year tenure in the Windy City. One of the reasons why this news is not considered a huge shock is because the writing had been on the wall for quite some time.
Although Boozer posted pretty respectable numbers during most of his time in Chicago (15.5/9.0/.491 FG%), his deficiencies on the defensive end became too difficult to ignore. And as Taj Gibson became more of a scoring threat, Boozer saw his minutes decrease during the second half of the season.
That trend continued in the playoff series against the Washington Wizards, as Boozer’s minutes were reduced even further to 24.2 minutes per contest. And as a result, he recorded postseason lows in points (9.6), rebounds (7.8) and shooting percentage (.426).
While Boozer was not always a fan favorite, he did have some memorable games during the past season. That being said, let’s take a look at the top five moments from Mr. Boozer’s 2013-14 campaign.
Please note: The list includes games in which Boozer recorded at least 20 points and seven rebounds while shooting at least 50 percent from the field.
