He painted it purple and opened up a massage parlor, yet Boozer calls Prince "a good tenant."...
Nothing newsworthy from a basketball standpoint from the latest stop on the Carlos Boozer radio tour other than he's back in Miami and getting Dan LeBatard to publicize his basketball camp in every other sentence.
Aside from that, perhaps some additional closure to the Boozer - Prince lawsuit story from several years ago. Boozer had owned a house in Los Angeles, rented it to Prince, and offers up additional detail:
"He put a couple different pieces in the house. He made a couple of my guest rooms into like a massage room; a massage parlor kind of thing. He had some hair stuff in there but the good thing about Prince is that he has a lot of coin so he was able to change it all back before he moved out. He was a good tenant. He was just hard to get a hold of to figure out what they were doing to my house. He's a busy man."
"There was no lawsuit. It got dropped because he changed everything back."
The idea was raised that based on relative financial situations, wouldn't someone expect Boozer to be renting from Prince and not the other way around?
"Just happened to be the way it worked out. I bought the crib up there in LA, in Beverly Hills. And I was going back to Utah for the start of the season and they obviously have the awards season out there where they have all the awards, the Grammys and what have you. And he just asked if he could rent it from me. And I was like, 'How much?' And it was at a great price and I let him rent it for about nine months; eight, nine months."
In order to drop the lawsuit, Prince also agreed to never write a "rally song" for an NBA team.
