VIDEO: Carlos Boozer Actually Threw Down A Good Dunk Last Night

Last night, an event occurred in the Chicago Bulls vs. New Orleans Hornets game that happens about as often as Leap Day: Carlos Boozer, (presumably) for the first time in four years, threw down a poster-worthy dunk on Hornets center Chris Kamen. It is the type of thing you need to see to believe.

Is it the top highlight of Boozer's season-and-a-half Chicago tenure? I certainly can't think of anything that tops it. Boozer is no stranger to throwing down big dunks (just check out this highlight video from 2009-2010, the season before he joined the Bulls), but they've been noticeably absent since signing a 5-year, $75 million contract in the summer of 2010.

Considering we've seen Boozer get rejected by the rim on numerous occasions during his time in Chicago, dunking a legit big man like Chris Kamen is a cause for a double-take, if not celebration. Poster slam are usually reserved for the guy who backs him up.
