    Boozer number switch

    Does anyone know why Boozer changed his number from 0 to 4?

    Sorry if I missed this discussion in a thread somewhere.

    Just off the top of my head, I'm guessing it's something to do with his brother also wearing #4 for the Jazz.

    Perhaps he always wanted #4, but it was unavailable when he arrived (Wes Johnson), and gave it a year-buffer before swtiching?

    Re: Boozer number switch

    The coaches gave him the number so he remembers that he needs to see four more passes before he shoots the ball once he touches it, instead of the zero that he is used to.
