Here's the relevant quotation from Cowley's article: "Whether it’s a lack of playing time in the fourth quarter or the reality that his contract could be amnestied this summer, there seems to be a disconnect lately between Carlos Boozer and the media. Case in point: Asked to talk to awaiting reporters after a recent practice, Boozer declined and said loudly, "I don’t give a damn.’’ Tom Thibodeau was asked on Monday if he thought Boozer was less engaged because of his diminished role. The Bulls coach defended his power forward but also made it obvious who is calling the shots on minutes in crunch time. "We’re at the time of the year where we need everyone at their best,’’ Thibodeau said. "We have to put maximum work into it. Everyone has a job to do. You have to put the team first. … If you play well, you’re going to play.’’ Holy crap! He is really starting to become a problem player, which you never could say about him in the past.
