08:09 AM ET 04.27 | Carlos Boozer's playoffs have been plagued by foul trouble and a lack of production. Both scenarios played out again late Tuesday night with an added twist: Boozer suffered turf toe on his right foot that he said he heard pop and contributed to him sitting for the final 18 minutes, 17 seconds. "We'll just see how it goes every day, try to get the pain out of it," Boozer said. "I'm in a great deal of pain. But I got until the next round starts. I told [coach Tom Thibodeau] if he needed me I'd be out there and try to gut it out. He said, 'If I need you, I'll put you in. If not, we'll just try to get it better.'" Then again, Boozer might have sat anyway given that he produced just two points on 1-for-5 shooting and five rebounds in 15:31. He picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter and two more in the third before sitting for good.

I've been seeing this crap for the last 2-3 months. He puts out more energy with his jawing then with a basketball. He actually sucks energy from the rest of his teammates. What a lazy arse.

At least he is playing.

Bulls fans, you will grow to despise this man just like every Cleveland and Utah fan do now. Top 5 biggest wastes of talent in NBA history. He will break your heart this year whether it be turf toe or telling your blind owner that he will resign if you let him out of his contract early.

This man is cursed.

Booze was a complete disappointment in the last series, and if he cannot be better fo rthe Bulls, then I hop ethey can shed him somehow.
