10 Carlos Boozer “Booze”

Why vote for him?

When on the top of his game, Boozer was one of the core pieces that led the Utah Jazz to their most recent Western Conference Finals in 2007. In that season and the following one he averaged over 20 points per game for the only time in his career. His best days were truly saved for the Jazz. Despite being injury prone and being a bit soft on the defensive end, he was great on the offensive end for one of the best teams the Jazz has seen recently.

Vote for him if you loved seeing “Carlos Boooooooooozer!” announced in the starting lineup in those powder blue Jazz uniforms.
