Huh. It seems that Carlos Boozer actually has weighed-in on the election:

One of Jazz All-Star forward Carlos Boozer’s former teammates at Duke University is Barack Obama’s personal assistant Reggie Love, a relationship that helped pave the way for Boozer to chat one-on-one recently with the Democratic Party’s nominee for president.

“I had a chance to meet (Obama) in Miami about three weeks ago, and I had a talk with him for about 10 or 15 minutes,” said Boozer, who — though he was raised in Alaska, the home of Republican Party candidate for vice president Sarah Palin — is a big Obama backer.

“He’s so impressive,” added Boozer, a two-time U.S. Olympian who won gold in China earlier this year with Team USA. “He (Obama) has this incredible aura about him. The way he talks, I want that guy leading my country.”

So there you have it. Of course I assume the NBA player demographic tilts heavily in Obama’s favor, even if not every player has specifically remarked on the election.
