Bulls reaction: Chicago fans chuckle at Carlos Boozer's choice of trainer

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Looking to work on his game in the offseason, Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer opted for his kids' trainer.

Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer worked hard in the offseason to improve his game, although his choice of guidance was a bit odd. Seeking a trainer, Boozer settled on the man that trains his kids, someone who has no experience working with NBA players.

The odd choice has Chicago fans over at Blog A Bull, SB Nation's Bulls site, chuckling:

This is just your classic training camp story. You can probably find one from last year where Carlos Boozer, or anyone, was really going to have a big season because of their offseason work. I'll at least give Booz credit for making this version of the tale unique: he found this trainer in his very own house, where the guy was teaching his (noted Miami Heat fans) children.

Boozer is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career. In 2011-12, the 11th-year player out of Duke averaged 15.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists. He played an average of 29:30 per game. All those numbers were down from his career averages of 17.0 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 32:17.

The Bulls are 1-0 so far this preseason, sporting a 92-88 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Chicago is without start point guard Derrick Rose, who tore his ACL during the first round of last season's playoffs. Rose will likely be out until at least the All-Star Break.
