Carlos Boozer 2001 FIBA Champion


Carlos Austin Boozer, Jr. (born in Aschaffenburg, West Germany on November 20, 1981 in) is an American professional basketball player for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). As a member of Team USA, Boozer won an Olympic bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and an Olympic gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics. The two-time NBA All-Star has also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

Carlos played in, and holds a medal from the 2001 FIBA Under-21 World Championship [a men’s under-21-only basketball competition organized by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA)]. It was the FIBA 22 & Under World Championship before FIBA lowered the age limit to 21 years in December 1998, and had its name changed to World Championship for Young Men.

In 2011 Carlos Boozers, who last played for the Lakers in 2015, leased his West Hollywood Real Estate to Prince in 2004. As the Chicago Tribune wrote, Boozer resisted but “the amount of money he was willing to pay made me reconsider.”

However, Prince reportedly took renovations to the rental a little too far: “West Hollywood Real Estate Agent Paul Argueta reported Prince paid $70,000 per month for the 10-bedroom, 11-bath home in West Hollywood. The same reports said attorneys for Boozer filed suit against Prince/MPG Music for violating the eight-month lease because of ‘painting the exterior with purple striping, “prince” symbol, and numbers 3121 (one of Prince’s albums).’

The suit also cited a purple monogrammed carpet was installed in the master bedroom and plumbing ‘for water transfer for beauty salon chairs’ was added.

The lawsuit was dropped after Prince fixed the changes he’d made to the WeHome home and Boozer, who is no stranger to professional athlete relocation, signed a non-disclosure agreement, but did have this to say:

“He made it purple. He wanted to put his personal touch on it because he wanted to make it feel like home. I was kind of worried about that when I saw the house. But Prince was great. I had a conversation with him. He changed everything back the way it was before he moved out.

“He did some very specific things that were built for him and his lifestyle, which is very different than mine.”
