Sounds like OLD J REINS low balled Carlisle. Hey Pax how about you coach this mess of yours.

Just curious. What kind of coaching experience does Mark Jackson have? Avery Johnson could be a good option, it's not his fault that Cuban kept tinkering with theam.

D'Antoni is the best available(?) coach for the Bulls... They have the personnel to run like the Suns used to do when they won 60 games and only the Spurs dynasty could derail their title chances... If a 'defensive minded' coach is hired most of the present roster does not fit and it would take years to change.

The best teams in the East are older and a running game would move the Bulls immediately into the upper echelon. All the Bulls would need to do so is D'Antoni and a point guard.

Rome burns, Nero fiddles.

P Coy, like your mind. Besides Phil, J. Pax is a former player and Triangle guy. Oops, wait, so is Pippen...and Cartwright....

No one has mentioned Doug Collins in a long time. Why not go to a guy with definite roots in the area, a guy having history with the franchise, a person who would be looking to improve on his first time as coach, and someone who can bring a little passion/emotion to the sidelines hopefully? IMHO, Carlisle is still the main man, with D'Antoni a long shot. Forget those other affirmative action recruits and no-names.

Pax better hurry and sign Avery Johnson quick and add new components to the team.
