Boozer feels he's deserving of All-Star nod

LOS ANGELES -- Derrick Rose was voted in as a starter for the All-Star Game and will be back here in a little more than two weeks at Staples Center for the NBA's midseason classic.

Carlos Boozer is hoping to join Rose.

"I'd love to be able to represent the Bulls in that game with D-Rose," Boozer said. "It would be a huge honor if it's something I'm able to do. If not, I'll go home and see my kids in Miami."

Boozer is averaging 19.8 points and 10.2 rebounds, which are All-Star caliber numbers. But he's missed 18 games and that may keep him off the team when the reserves are announced tonight.

"I know I missed some games with my broken hand," he said. "I feel like I am deserving of an All-Star appearance. But if not, I'm not gonna be disappointed. There are a lot of guys deserving of an All-Star appearance. There are so many good players in the NBA some guys that want to be there that won't be there. If I am there, I'll be extremely happy."

Arrogance, thy name is Boozer. Maybe Boozer can attend the All-Star weekend as Rose's bellhop: that's the only way Boozer gets there.

You dont deserver to be an all-start. The rookie Griffin last night ate you up .. You dont defend. You dont rebound .. So why do you deserve to be anall-star.. NO reason ...If not for ASik and Tak saving your ass stopping your guy after he gets passed you , youd be sitting the bench like Thins did earlier .. NO all star you .. You need to toughen up and play D
