This is pathetic really. I like Vinny but he is in way over his head. Paxson has no reason to still have a job. 2 home losses in the last week or so to two of the worst teams in the league.

This is very much a win for the Bulls' organization.
They reinforce to everyone that this is not a very good collection of players.
They also enhance their chances of getting a good spot at the lottery.

unreal and absolutely embarrassing, complete morale crusher. i cant say one player on the Bulls played a good game tonight. Gooden did the best of them, but even he faltered with some costly errors and decision making when it counted. this game really puts the status of the Bulls in perspective

Agreed although I would say it puts the Bull's LACK of status in perspective

Are you out of your mind?
THIS LOSS "really puts the status of the Bulls in perspective."
Have you NOT been watching all season?
Morale crusher?

As we look at the bottom feeders of the league and expect the Bulls to win ALL of those, I think the bottom feeders of the league look at the Bulls and figure they got a chance to pull off a win.

Ironic isn't it that the last for the last two years the Bulls have been beat by the ONE THING that allowed them to exceed expectations for the previous 3, hustle.

At this point it's probably best that this team goes back to the year one philosophy of Pax/Skiles. That being, if you don't hustle 100% you don't play.

As it turns out, Skiles was a keeper.
The players should have been cleaned out.

Did you see the line on Tyrus Thomas? 2 rebounds 6 points against the powerhouse 5-32 (oops now 6-32) Oklahoma City Thunder. How 'bout that for improvement. Ya'll know what the worst part of all this is? 20.5k showed up to watch this pathetic display. This ain't changing anytime soon. Go Blackhawks!!

Happy for them. Vinny Del Negro has no plan whatsoever...and no control of this team. The Bulls are running no real offense and are plagued by selfish players. Gordon, how ever good he may be, shoots all too often. The same can be said for both Gooden and Hughes. No one should hold Thomas' final numbers against him when he never gets the ball. He virtually did not get a touch in the first half with the above said players on the court. I would rather watch losses coming from a less selfish team...this is simply not entertaining.

I'm also finding myself more interested in the Hawks than I have been in a long long time.

Watch the game much? If you did you would know who actually got the ball in their hands and did all the shooting.

Dollars to donuts, Thursday night at the UC, Lebron plays 2.5 quarters. Cleveland ahead by 30 when Lebron sits down. Any takers? Of course all this coming to you live on national TV courtesy of TNT. Wonder if the NBA has a flex schedule like the NFL so they don't air games which obviously will end up in the toilet. Blackhawks should be dominating the headlines.

THIS IS GREAT!

Like Nada Surf said, at this point we have to lose as much as possible. The worst record to finish with in this league is 37-45, just out of the playoffs and right at the bottom of the lottery. That's about where the Bulls are heading.
We HAVE to lose amap (as much as possible) so we can get Paxson, Del Negro, and half this time fired. If we win over 30 games, it'll be the same old line about "First year with Derreck Rose and a new coach. Let's give it time." Under 30 win season and we may have a chance to clean house.
GO...EVERYONE ELSE BUT BULLS!

Basically a half filled with 3 or 4 players shooting (Hughes, Gordon, Gooden). I'd say Thomas only saw the ball in his hands offensively 1 or 2 times at most...completely ignored. He had a total of 6 shots and did a couple of things in the few minute he saw the court in the 2nd half. Everyone else had 18,19,20 shot attempts. Hard to blame a guy for that.

I love the bulls but I must say I am now rooting for a loss every game just so that something gets shaken up. I mean Paxson (a joker), Vinny doesn't seem to know anyone's game on the roster and plays to their strengths (a joker), the playing roster (jokers!).

These group of people are ruining the franchise for what was once the team that everyone followed and every player in league wished they were on. Now they are the laughing stock of the NBA as it makes me mad as hell.

Thing is when the trade deadline comes around nobody will come over as who wants to play with a team with no future! Our only resort now is the draft again but then look at the success we've had there. Then we must wait years for them to develop again!

JOKE!
