Before you guys bash me, i know my substitute patterns are ridiculous. I know as soon as one of my players get hot i yank his ass from the game. Not only that, i leave him out till he is cold and then i put him back into the game and tell him to shoot away. I know i have benched Derrick Rose in the 4th quarter of the last two games but i never thought that Kapt klank Kirk would stink up the joint and get burned to pieces by T.J Ford. Matter of fact , i have no freaking clue how to coach. I know we have 4 new players who should help this team but give me enough time and i will screw that up too. I will continue to keep Loul Deng in the game every 4th quarter even tho i know he wont do squat. Actually, i am open to all Caoching suggestions,. Can anybody help me out please?

Tyrus may know how to block shots but his defense SUCKS, he gets beaten to the hoop all the time and his guy seems to always get offensive rebounds, and the next time he doesn't get back on D cuz he's to busy watching another shot his clank off the rim, he should 50 push ups right there on the court.

Who said Derrick Rose is the Bulls chief asset? Probably that oink Nada Surf. This kid may have raw talent but he's a work in progress. Paxson clearly needs to re-sign Gordon. Also needs to rescind that Deng contract. At least get him to sink free throws. This was truly a group effort in defeat. Another in the long-list of games they should have won but didn't. I thought they already learned that they're not good enough to turn it on and off in spurts. The Pacers deserved to win the game (without Grainger and Dunleavy, imagine that) and probably deserve to get into the playoffs. Just another in a season long on disappointments and short in accomplishments. Also makes the last two wins seem like a mirage or tease.

Yikes...imagine if Dunleavy and Granger were healthy...just another example of the Bulls going nowhere fast with an inexperienced coach in charge of the circus...

Somebody please fire Vinny the Black. He's an absolute joke. Hinrich committing turnovers, getting killed by Ford, while Rose sits on the bench in the 4th quarter. probably the worst coaching hire in Chicago since Jim Essian. WTF?

If the bulls manage to screw up 2010-11 and don't pick up a Stoudemire, Bosh, James or Wade than i see a mass Exodus of bulls fans leaving this pathetic organization. I know i will. Will you...?

You're just dumb. There's no way you watched the game I did. Vinny didn't lose this game. The players did. They gave up too many second chance points and were switching too much on D. Yeah Vinny should have kept Rose out there cuz he was doing soooo much better than Kirk. He was 1-9 for cryin out loud and was playing horrible D on Ford all second half. Kirk didn't do much better but once again thats not VDN's fault.

Everyone needs to listen up. VINNY IS NOT A HORRIBLE COACH. There I said it and I 100% stand by it. There is much worse out there than Vinny. He has done a good job in his first season seeing as how we are in the playoff hunt when no one thought we would be this year, and he has barely had a full roster all year.

Lay off Vinny and lay off Pax, and just enjoy some of the success we are staring to have now.

Go Bulls!!!

I have begun my own personal Exodus, but it's a hard habit to break. They show flashes of brilliance where you can almost see how their team is supposed to function, then they stink up the joint two days later. I continue to lay blame on Johnny P, who put this collection of role players together and lucked into a top draft pick. I agree Johnny P's pet Vinny isn't great, but I don't blame Vinny for being the coach. It's great experience for him and I also don't blame him for the way the two bums that Johnny P gave huge contracts to play. Looks like Deng put himself on cruise control from here on out.

Success? so when did a 25-31 record equal to success? You need to let go of your man crush of vinny and look at the facts. HE IS A HORRIBLE ,HORRIBLE Coach!!!! I can think of 5 games off the top of my head that Vinny has lost be himself with bonehead coaching moves. And speaking of rose, he has been the Best player this year along with gordon yet the 1st time either gets off to a slow start, Vinny yanks them in and out of the game. How can you get any type of rythym like that? Evry person in the league would tell you that they would take Rose having a bad game over Hinrich any day of the week. He was 1 of 9 but your woman Kirk was 1 of 7 with 2 turnovers. AND T.J Ford scored 8 straight points on kirk and his fantastic D at the crucial point in the 4th. Also, Tyrus is your best shot blocker so you watch indiana score ten straight points in the paint then you decide to put him back in with 1 minute left? Vinny is a momentum killer. When you have a guy thats hot you RIDE the hott hand not sit him on the bench for 8 minutes of a quarter. If thats your idea of a good coach then you are more PATHETIC then he is
