This team is made up of selfish, overpaid, under achieving whiners. Paxson needs to unload most of them and start over. I have watched a lot of bad Cubs, Bears and Sox teams over the years, but this team makes me vomit.

Paxson also needs to find a real coach. Boylan is a gag. He hasn't had control of the team since day one. He may be a good assistant, but he is clueless on how to run a team. Good riddance.

Boylan hopes to remain the head coach? I hope to win the lottery but I think I have a better shot at that than Boylan remaining Coach! Paxson has to go the team has only had one good year in the five he has been here! Only thing this guy is good at is driving talent into the ground then unloading them for nothing! I mean this guy was setup last year to really turn this team into something and he sits on it and does nothing! Time for Stand Pax to get the boot.

This is the guy that hired Boylan to be coach! Boylan has no coaching skills at all. Kinda like Paxson has no GM skills at all. He had his shot his "Plan" Blew all over his face. Its time for change!

You never give a bad interim coach the full time job.

at this rate, Paxon may want to try the old "college of coaches" routine.

It seems to me that Boylan is making bad coaching decisions and the players know it. I think Kirk H. is the only one who truly knows the plays (including the coach) and he is frustrated. I think Noce wants to win games, but isn't given the opportunity and he is frustrated. I think Duhon was playing good and should have been able to continue his "streak" instead of Boylan putting in the new guys. I think he is frustrated. These guys are good people and have been getting vilified by everyone. If I had any say, I'd bring back Skiles now that Wallace is gone. And I'd sit Hughes until he learns how to play team basketball. Gooden could use some good coaching as well.

Insiders say Rick Carlisle may be a favorite to succeed Boylan. Ever heard of him? Ironically, Doug Collins is in talks with the Milwaukee Bucks to replace Harris as GM. His - Collins'- playing/early coaching roots however go back to the Bulls; I think he'd be great as deja vu coach or coach/GM or even as Bulls broadcaster on Comcast. Actually, I think Paxson ought to interview Chad for the coaching role next year. He'd certainly bring considerable basketball knowledge expert analysis and executive caliber insight to the position ..... not.

Yeah just keep living in your dream world that the Bulls are good and Paxson is the man. Glad to have such an optimist amongst us! Carlise is the smart choice and he is who I was hoping would get the job when Skiles quit. However we are talking Paxson and I am not sure what he will do. Collins isn't interested in coaching anymore and I doubt he would consider this squad.

What is your deal? I have my oppinions and I will be the first to admit when I am wrong. The only time you post anything is to say how wrong I am about basketball business and that Paxson shouldn't be critized. Do you not feel that he blew last summer or did you actually think that the soft core we all saw crumble in the playoffs was somehow going to make it to the Eastern Conf finals because we added Noah? Fact is he was in a prime position to bring in a star player and he didn't want to part with his players. I really don't see what there is to disagree on. But whatever if calling me stupid and whatching Ben Gordon mock a PG makes you feel good then enjoy.
