One solution....get rid of the entire Bulls staff...starting with the coach...he isn't running the team....and Wallace seems to be a good player but not a team player like he was in Detroit...then again....he did come to the Bulls for the money....there will be other good center/forwards to come around...with an interview that begins with.."go ask Joaquin, he has all the answers" that is not the attitude of an 11 year professional player...more like an 11year old instead....get rid of him...Chicago doesn't need him...Chicago has MORE CLASS than he thinks he has....just another ass who can player some ball....

The team has now become the league's joke. They even make the Knicks look good! The organization no longer has any creditability. It's starts with back-office staff that mis-leads the season ticket holds to the players and coaches and players who can seem to do their jobs on and off the court.
It's time for a full house cleaning! Everyone must go! Coaches, players and front office staff! They have completely ruined a once respectable team to what you see today

Whats the big deal? Wallace and Noah got in a verbal fight. The end of the world is here! Its stupid articles like this one that just make things worse and blow things out of portion. Just because their teammates does not mean they are never gonna argue and are gonna agree with everything. Your telling me that you never had a verbal fight with one your co-workers or with a teammate? Get real! Hop off the Bulls nuts and let them get through this phase qcik instead of blowing things out of portion.

Its just an overevaluation of talent. Your stuck with Wallace you wont find a team to take on that salary, you are stuck with Hinrich for salary reasons. Your only options are trading a package Thomas, Noah, Nocioni(if healthy) for Gasol. Part ways with Gordon, resign Deng and hopefully get a superstar such as Arenas who is unrestricted free agent. This year is done and they have to play the younger guys in order to get some increased trade value.

Hey, since the season is all but over, why not go young and start Noah, Nocioni, Sefalosha, and Deng? How much worse could the results be? It'd be an exciting team...

Noah seems to be the only one with some heart. The kid would do about anything to get a win. If the Bulls don't want him, I can think of about 25 other teams that would take him. 2 more years Joakim, then get the hell out of there!!

Dr. Noah (as in no points, no rebounds, no steals, no assists, no leadership) isn't worth all this attention.

The grown-up players on the team took the PERFECT action in putting this bizarre player back on track.

Hey, he's French. That should have told you a lot to begin with.

5th angel didn't read the stats. Noah played half the minutes and had more rebounds than Wallace last night. And,that was one of Ben's best games. The prior night Noah was twice the competitor than Wallace. I attended that game. Wallace was a zero.

Noah was a turd at Florida and is even worse at the next level. Glad you got him and he's not here anymore.

Yo, Gator boy.

This isn't about Wallace. This is about Chicago wasting a key draft choice and millions of dollars on a French waffle who looked like a cartoon character from Fat Albert on draft day. That photo with him and Stern sums it up.

Wallace is a whole separate problem.
