Paul Millsap played with Carlos Boozer. He admired Carlos Boozer. He seems to have some mixed feelings about playing against Carlos Boozer tonight when the Jazz and Boozer's Chicago Bulls at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
Boozer's six years in Utah were marked by a return to the Western Conference Finals for the Jazz, but endured a complicated relationship with fans who questioned his passion. The Tribune's Steve Luhm has a good story in today's paper assessing both Boozer's time here and looking at the season he's having for the Bulls. Kurt Kragthorpe, meanwhile, says Jazz fans should let Boozer off the hook for missing one-third of his games while with the Jazz.
Millsap agreed with that sentiment, calling criticisms of Boozer "unfair."
