What Boozer did was wrong. He broke his word.

As Tony Montana once said, "All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don't break them for no one."

"Our actions have been based upon what Carlos told us he wanted," the Cavaliers said in a statement by owner Gordon Gund and general manager Jim Paxson.



The statement said the Cavaliers' approach with Boozer was entirely consistent with his public statements in an interview July 1 with The Associated Press.



"We are both very surprised and very disappointed by what is now being reported," the statement said.

Well, whatta 'ya expect from a Dookie? :shrug:

Statement from Jim Paxson and Gordon Gund regarding Carlos Boozer: "Our actions have been based upon what Carlos told us he wanted. This was also entirely consistent with his public statements in the media July 1. We are both very surprised and very disappointed by what is now being reported. Offer sheets cannot be signed until July 14, once the NBA's free agency moratorium period is over. It is unlikely we will have more to say prior to that."

Carlos Boozer quote: "I want to be in Cleveland," Boozer said Thursday (July 1st). "I like it here. My wife and I are very, very happy here, and I want to be with the Cavaliers. Good things are happening. Now it's up to my agent and the Cavs to work things out. I hope they will."

Carlos Boozer quote: "I'm thankful for everything the Cavs have done for me," Boozer said. "A lot of teams didn't think I was worth it and let me slide into the second round. But they were the ones who gave me a chance and let me play as a rookie. That doesn't happen much in this league unless you're LeBron."

Rob Pelinka quote: "Carlos and his wife, C.C., made it clear to me that they are very comfortable with the Cavaliers' organization, owner Gordon Gund and the direction the team is going," Pelinka (Rob, Carlos's agent with SFX) said. "I'm confident that Jim and I will continue to have conversations and we'll be able to work something out."

Yep, Boozer fleeced 'em good. Methinks Carlos just went from Cleveland's hero to Public Enemy #1.
