Give Me A Tremendous Break !!! BIG FAT-DADDY , JR, stated that D'Antoni was ' a little rude'. I know that that RICH, son of a dog, could not care a FIG about my, or anyone's opinions. He ( and His Dog, PAX ) blew off some good people, AGAIN. It's their business, their money, and the Fans' take it In THe Shorts once more for another crippled season. Vinny may be a great guy. Can he lead, coach, and what does he ( really feel inside ) think about being number 5 ( IF I've counted correctly ) in the order of selection ??????

don't be a moron, you sound like arod when he signed with the rangers. "i'm ready to win"...yeah right. maybe in 2 years he'll feel good about his choice, but NOW?? no way he doesn't regret it. the rose pick just made it that much worse for him. yeah, unless you're some sort of religious faith healer and can SOMEHOW make eddy curry...uh...RUN down the court, your system is ruined. it'll be like watching Jared Lorenzen run the option at qb, it won't work and it'll be funny to watch

i bet if d'antoni knew the bulls would get rose for the first pick he would've signed with the bulls instead of the knicks.

After all the turmoil that's gone on with the Knicks the last few years, for D'Antoni to choose working for them over working for Paxson and Reinsdorf pretty much tells you all you need to know about where this Bulls team is currently at. I know nothing at all about Del Negro, and whether he can coach or not, i just hope he's not some sort of lap dog that Reinsdorf hired on. Obviously Skiles wasn't going to be anyones puppet, which is why his departure was so quick. Paxson has been playing the puppet role of late, which has cost him alot of respect, and i'd almost be really surprized if the new H.C. doesn't fall into line as well. Hopefully, i'm wrong.

I'm actually glad Collins was not chosen. It wasn't the right fit ( NOW ). Maybe Collins knew that Rose was the wrong / worst pick for #1. We'll all see. I still recommend Fat-Daddy JR & Pax NOT sign this... wanna-a be, with Great PR people ! He was a POOR choice ( at #1 ). Save salary, cut your losses. Vinny was a 'chance too', but give him a break without having to DEAL with ALL OTHER things, plus trying to accede to this Marginal player named Rose !

Oh Please... Are you Freaking serious? Doug Collins was the perfect fit huh? LOL! Athletic team with little talent and a coach the plays the slowest style in the league. Yeah that would have been wonderful fit! Doug is way overrated and would have been a bad fit.

I did want D'Antoni that would have been interesting to see if he could help the development of the team. He would have made the games exciting atleast. Bulls F'd that up for sure. Pax didn't help by waiting till the last minute to decide D'Antoni was his guy.

Doesn't matter who they have coaching with the crappy job Paxson does of NEVER making a FREAKING MOVE to fix the roster. Stupid F*** offer Ben Gordon 60 million!!! IDIOT!

dear fire pax..... are you kidding? little talent? the bulls are young and ready to explode... they now need a coach they can trust, and nobody would have been better than doug collins.... doug would give and receive 110 per cent....if you would have heard how he would motivate the bulls like tyrus thomas and noah it was fANTASTIC..but that worthless jerry r had to kill the deal because doug leaked he might be the new bulls coach and that angered the useless egomaniac reinsdorf.... pax wanted doug... so now we get a yes man that nobody knows... this was so counterproductive..... the bulls will make the playoffs but a young team like this could have used a great motivator....
