VIDEO: Carlos Boozer Throws A Really Bad Pass

Carlos Boozer has been public enemy No. 1 for Chicago Bulls fans seemingly from the moment he signed his 5-year, $75 million contract. Boozer was never who Chicago wanted in the Summer of 2010: the years spent creating cap space for that specific free agent class was meant to go to LeBron James or Chris Bosh or Dwyane Wade. When all three joined forces on the Miami Heat, and Amare Stoudemire and Joe Johnson signed or resigned elsewhere, Boozer was Chicago's consolation prize. He was better than nothing, but hardly the savior the money was originally earmarked for.

Boozer immediately found himself in trouble in Chicago when he "tripped over a gym bag" and broke his hand before the start of the 2010-2011 season. When he came back, he proved he was a nice player, at least offensively, but not someone who should be making close to a max contract.

Boozer was sneaky-good for the Bulls this season (19.79 PER!), but he's again come up short in the playoffs. On Sunday during the Bulls' Game 4 loss to the 76ers, Boozer threw what was deemed "as bad a pass as you will see by a pro" by announcer Mike Tirico. Check the video:
