Avery Johnson is better coach than Mike D'Antoni because he is more defensive minded. You can't win championship without defense that has proven in the playoffs. For Bulls, they still have a chance to sign Gilbert Arenas if they want superstar type player. Firing Scott Skyles was a mistake by Paxson, it is not his fault, his job was to coach not babysit.

I would love to see Johnson rather than D'Antoni. Why? Because Johnson is more of a true leader and not a "player's" coach. This young Bulls team, without a true point guard, would become the Denver of the East under D'Antoni, and have to outscore their opponents which I don't think they are capable of doing. Give me a defensive coach for the playoffs anytime...

Do not let Paxson draft D"Antoni. He never plays the bench and look what it did to the Suns this year in the playoffs. He should have won more games with the talent he had. Lucky to be in Arizona but Kess should fire him.

Is this the same Mike Downey that predicted that the Suns would "fold like a tortilla" in the playoffs about 18 years ago?
