Utah Jazz Forward Carlos Boozer Stars In "Stay In School" PSA With Alaska Governor Sean Parnell

Utah Jazz forward Carlos Boozer, who continues to endure some criticism from Utah NBA fans and whose status with the Jazz continues to be ambiguous, isn't letting it stop him from giving something back to the community and the state where he grew up. Earlier this summer, he returned to Juneau, Alaska to conduct a basketball camp for kids and to warn kids about the dangers of drugs, in particular OxyContin.

But Boozer did even more while he was in Juneau. The video embedded below, which I first spotted on ADN's Alaska Politics blog, and was originally posted on the State of Alaska Vimeo site, is a PSA he cut with Governor Sean Parnell urging kids to stay in school.

Maybe he should cut one of these videos with Utah Governor Gary Herbert as well.

Regardless of whether or not Carlos Boozer stays with the Jazz, we can see he hasn't allowed prominence to go to his head. Boozer is not your typical NBA "felon"; he's a responsible citizen.
