Boozer: Bulls’ Chemistry Is Amazing
So far this season Carlos Boozer has been more aggressive and is trying to fill some of gaps created by Derrick Rose’s knee injury and subsequent rehab. Boozer points to the cohesiveness of his team as a key reason Chicago has stayed in the playoff mix in the East without their star player.
“People forget we’re playing without our MVP,” explained Boozer. “[We’ve] played without our All-Star center [Joakim Noah]. You see how guys step up and we come together, it doesn’t matter what happens, we’re up by 18, things are rolling, things start coming back, we stay together no matter what. I think that’s the mark of our team, we’re very resilient and we ride for each other.
“Our team chemistry is so amazing. This team is like a college team as far as our chemistry is concerned. We all go out together, we eat together. We win and lose together. We have a bad game, everybody is circling the wagons and picking each other up and when we have great game everybody celebrates no matter who has a great game or who doesn’t. We have a fun group man, I think people overlook that.”
