03:25 PM ET 10.01 | It's no secret that Taj Gibson is a vital part of the Bulls' future, and he's already won over the legions of Bulls fans who have seen him play. That coupled with the utter failure of Carlos Boozer to produce consistently makes for a killer battle at power forward during camp. The money factor is the reason the Bulls haven't cut Boozer loose yet, and it could be a weak excuse for them to start Boozer this year. After 2013, the Bulls will likely amnesty Boozer, meaning this season is a make or break one for the bald screaming machine. It's because of this that Boozer will likely get more minutes over Gibson, but if Boozer keeps up his recent style of play that could violently shift.

Taj is like a younger Haslem, like a Bass, Carl Landry a poor man's David West if you will...
He has been better than Boozer for 2 seasons now, so clearly Boozer should be benched, heck he should be amnestied!
But Paxson was a better 3 point shooter, not that good as a GM.

Why not just trade Boozer

No one wants that contract. They wont be able to trade him until the final year of this crappy deal. (Yells at Joe D to put the phone down)

Hells Yeah, he meshes better with Noah and adds a ton of grit to the team when he's on the floor... No brainer....

Boozer could help with scoring off the bench. Not a Bulls fan, but good luck D. Rose.

Um, Duh!

You are only going to get a Solid 24 minutes out of Boozer.
Split the time between the two... Without D. Rose they are going to need the Legs if they make it to the Playoffs.
