Honestly, if you had asked me if I thought Carlos Boozer was a fighter, I would say no. Well Boozer was on ESPN 1000’s Waddle & Silvy Show and after being asked the usual questions about the Bulls, things got interesting. Boozer said that he let Prince rent out his LA mansion back in 2006 and things got crazy when Prince began to make the place into his own. Jay Williams had all the details.
“Supposedly, Prince changed the front gate to the Prince sign, he changed the master bedroom to a hair salon, he changed the streaming blue waters that led to the front door to purple water, he knocked out walls, he changed the molding on top of the ceiling. Booz was livid. So pissed off, so angry … He put his Purple Rain stamp on it
Boozer only had nice things to say about Prince on the radio though.
“Good dude, good tenant,” Boozer said. “[He] took care of the house his way. And then fixed it back the way I needed it to be. Very good dude.”
Well according to Jay Williams, Boozer wasn’t so happy at the time.
Booz was like, ‘I was getting ready to go over there and beat this little man down.’ And dude was just like ‘Here, Boozer, here is a little check for about a million, it’ll take care of everything, get it back the way you want it.’ And Booz was like , ‘This little man is cool as hell.’”
I guess everyone has their own Prince story these days.
