Maybe instead of launching one of the top coaches in the nba he could have maybe you could have uh... Tried to fix a bad team! Your coach could see it the fans and the rest of the world had seen them max out last year. But instead you go out and whiff on major trade after major trade becuase the players you drafted are suppior to anyone elses right??? Loul Deng "Superstar" and Ben Jordan can't touch them.

Psst. that old guy you signed for like 3mil Joe Smith. He is probably the most talented player on the team. Yeah that is sad huh...

Hey, how about a Kirk for Mo' Williams deal straight up? Whose got the better point guard, the Bucks or the Bulls?

I believe that the signing of Ben Wallace will go down as one of the worst off season signings in Bulls history. Fire Paxon next, and hire back Doug Collins!

The problem is that Tyson Chandler was 7"0 and Ben Wallace is 6"7 and he is no Dennis Rodman. When the team realizes that they made a mistake not taking Aldridge that went to Portland via trade, that is why Paxson needs to take some blame. Ben Gordon is not a max player, but if Kirk can get big bucks, then the mascott should get 40 mill.

While it's unfair to single out one player, I continue to be angered by the play of Ben "I got my big money" Wallace. His numbers are are atrocious considering his $60M contract. Commentators are fond of saying Wallace provides all those "little things that don't show up on stat sheets." Such as not grabbing rebounds but simply tapping the ball to someone like it's volleybally? Such as missing point-blank layups. Such as being utterly afraid to enter the paint with the ball? I was flabbergasted the other day when Wallace, after sinking one free throw (he was 1 of 5 that game if I recall, and that was his only point), said "someone had to be the hero, why not me." Why don't you instead try scoring one basket in a 48-minute game? You are an embarrasment. Pax: Please jettison him soon...

Can you say l-o-t-t-e-r-y?

Outside of course the Allan Houston contract and Vin Baker in by the Sonics; this is the worst in NBA history.

Ben Wallace's deal looked good on paper at the time. In retrospect, not so good .... But, come on. The NBA is full of ridiculous deals. How about Penny Hardaway's multi-year deal? Maybe our own Kirk Hinrich's pre-season deal? I say sign up Norm Van Lier and coax Jerry Sloan to come back.

Ben Wallace was over-rated his entire career and his signing was dumb because chandler's numbers at the young age of 21 0r 22 were already comparable to the 60 million dollar man. NEVER NEVER get rid of young 7 footers for nothing! Pax has to go he built a flawed team and doesn't have the balls to admit they suck and its his fault!

If Paxson makes no moves before the trade deadline I hope someone will hold up a sign or banner reading "Trade Paxson." This team needed changes in the off-season anyway and all he does is draft Joakim Noah? They need a low-post scorer and some size in the guard position. If Paxson only fixed one of those problems this year I would be happy, then he can use the off-season to improve the team. As of right now, it looks like Paxson is in denial, but hopefully he will realize this core is no more, and every one of them are tradeable. His job should be on the line from here on out, with Skiles gone their will be know one left to blame.

Yeah but PJ Brown? I wanted to gouge my eyes out everytime he was on the court! He is like Ben Wallace living in a dream world only it is our nightmare.
