Full story: Chicago Tribune

Why is Paxson letting trade rumors bother him? Paxson should draft Rose and investicate as many trades as possible.

I think Paxson will make a better draft choice than he will a coach, look who he has or is looking to interview and that scares me!

Why is Paxson so upset? Doesn't he have people who deal with the rumors, lies, and knucklehead stuff?

Paxon is way to uptight and sensitive. You have the number one pick in the draft Pax, get used to it. The fact that Pax has been so lethargic in getting anything done does not help the fact either. He was "evaluating" Jim Boylan for like 5 months. The fans were done with our evaluation after one week. If he was serious about saving last season he never would have given Boylan the job.

I'm also more concerned by the coaching choice than the pick. The names the Bulls are looking at are the type of coaches they would have to hire following the Jordan error when Krause was still in charge. This is a desirable coaching job so Lets go after a desirable coach.
Sidebar: I also think Mike North is bad for radio/Chicago and the fact that this guy is popular in many circles worries me as he's just a negative dude who doesn't know a heck of a lot about sports.

j\Joey Dorsey has inside information? from where? please thhis clown should be worried about his game wand if he will get drafted. Its amazing to me that he of all people who suggest that he knows what Paxton is going to do. Hell he should be in Vegas right now getting ready to cash in on his inside information. I also recall him saying 2 years in a row that the Memphis U tigers would would the national title. Hell he sounds just like Charles Barkley, in 93 saying he talked to God, and God told him that the Suns were gonna win. Big mouth opinions are just like booty holes everyone has one

Do you know anything about basketball? Have you ever listen to Paxson talking about basketball? He is like Steve Stone of basketball. Man is great feel for the game and vision. Paxson is best when it comes to basketball. Listen to him talk sometime when he breaks things down. I miss those day when he was on radio doing bulls games.

He might have a great feel for the game but the fact remains his vision for a team is crap... His trades are crap... The fact that it takes him years to process information is laughable. His inability to make quick choices continues to hurt the team.

Yeah I would say that he is a failure as a GM!

One Playoff series win in five years in a top three market is complete crap! Come on...

I think the bulls should atleast seriously consider the Celtics assistant as a prospective coach and retain the assistant that was responsible for the offensive system that was employed the last game of the season. It was the most efficient use of he personnel onthis team in qiet a few years.

Hope that Memphis player was right. Get a scorer Pax, then worry about a point guard.

Your right - Mike North is one and the station sure sucks up to the Cubs for being the Flag ship station for White Sox games. Is Jerry really getting his monies worth? I like Steve and Ed but thats about all of 670 I like.
