Boozer has been a more efficient scorer and that's not to say that Brand has been ineffective. In EVERY other area of the game, Brand's career beats Boozer. He was a defensive anchor in his prime and has considerably better rebounding numbers despite a heavy tail off for a two or three years now.
It could be argued that Boozer is in a little better shape right now but neither of these guys is going to be mentioned in the same breath as Karl Malone when it comes to longevity/durability.

Elton had better individual accolades in college, but Booz does have a title. In the pros, again, Brand's individual performance I'd say is better (especially Pre-injury), but Booz's teams tended to make more playoff games-- and he played very well on those teams.
Just kinda depends what you prefer in terms of career achievement, individual or team.

Boozer put up solid numbers but dude was never close to the defensive presence that Brand was (he has really long arms and great timing), and also dissapeared against taller competition (I saw this personally in consecutive years against Pau and LO).

and sad to say folks gonna remember Booze more for being the man who left the Cavs and lebron, then playing with D Will in Salt lake and then with D Rose in the CHI. his association game is the only thing that he has over Brand, however it is a biggie.
Brand got hurt and is a afterthought to alot of folks sad to say, if he had have had gotten a chance to play with a D Will or somebody of that skill set in his prime and peak then he might have been a borerline HOF IMO.
Booze is a 3rd wheel no matter what the situation.
