We linked to a story about this a while back but this clip of Carlos Boozer talking to Dan Patrick about the time he rented his LA mansion to Prince.
Yes, that Prince.
Prince wanted the house and was willing to pay $1 million to live there for a year. Boozer had just bought it, his then-wife had spent a lot of time and money decorating it, but he was working for the Utah Jazz and didn’t need to live in it, so $1 million? You bet!
So when he came back, the house was changed. Prince had put this on his gates and the carpets had been pulled up and replaced (naturally) with purple and black.
The entire house had been remodeled. One room had become a hair salon. Another was a massage room. He had even put a dance floor in another.
Boozer understandably was not happy and tried to reach the star, who was overseas.
You can watch for the whole story but the quote we love, which is not here but in another story we can’t find now was this: “that little man is cool as hell.”
They ended up being pretty good friends. Great story.
