Carlos Boozer: Betrayal Skull Dude

Tom Ziller at AOL Fanhouse gives us this nugget from Beijing:

In the latest "incredible Chinese nickname" news, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Utah forward Carlos Boozer is known in China as Fan Gu Zai, which translates as "Betrayal Skull Dude." The Dealer's Jodie Valade explains:

The betrayal skull reference comes from the Chinese story of Zhuge Liang, one of China's most well-known intellectuals and military strategists. According to legend, before Zhuge died, he said, "Wei will betray the country sooner or later." Wei was a general under Zhuge's supervision."

How do you know?" someone asked.

"He has a protuberant bone on his head," Zhuge answered.

Apparently the Chinese have noticed a similar protuberance on our All-Star forward. Take note, Jazz front office: maybe it would be better to trade the Betrayal Skull Dude before he can, you know, betray us.
