Maybe it is ? Get strength, get courage, find yourself, maybe a new agent too. Play up to your ability, show strength. Remember that The ( HIGHER POWER ) only helps those, whom help themselves,
What Higher Power are you referring to? Reinsdorf?

I don't know how you guys all miss the obvious. The Bulls were a solid front line player away from the playoffs and they drafted a guard. YAY...LOCAL BOY GOES TO THE BULLS! Sorry...not what they needed. They've got guards out the ying-yang and needed to draft Beasley. Young front line players can have an immediate impact because they don't have to run the offense...just score, rebound and play defense. Point guards take a few years and need players to throw the ball too. Chris Paul didn't develop into an All-Star his first year, y'know.

Can I be President of the "Fire John Paxson Club"?

It is amazing that in two years and three coaches no one can figure out a starting lineup or rotation!! That means this team is poorly constructed. Everyone knew the Bulls needed to make multiple moves this summer and once again nothing!! This team was built around Skiles coaching style which has lead to a roster full of tweeners! Now the guy you built this team around(Skiles) is gone and Del Negro(inexperienced coach) is stuck with this and only two years to figure it out!!! Poor Vinnie!!!!

For the 100th time. Vinny never coached a game in his life. He has two peopl as assistance coaches who would have been better hires. But, the Bulls needed a young coach but someone who had some talent and experience. Since Jerry owns the team and Jerry feels more comfortable with (w) guys, he made Paxson the GM and Paxson wants to make the Bulls fit Jerry's paridgm of having two white boys on the starting five and 3 black players, but one black player that is a super star. The problem is Jordon, Pippen and Horace Grant retired. Paxson was a player very much like Kirk Hinrich: He wasn't that good, and because he was surrounded by Greatness his inadequecy was not noticed. But, we see Kirk is over matched. But, since Kirk is a white boy the Bulls Management circus has paid him 13 million dollars. The problem is every gaurd on the team is way better than him if they are given a chance, which management want do for fear of the obvious. It is clear at this juncture that Rose is hundred times better than Kirk should start. Gordon, Hughes, Tahbo are all better than Kirk. But management has said this is : Kirk and the Bulls will play wedenesday night against so and so. I love kirk, but man the truth hurts and it is hurting the Bulls, and the players know what I'm saying and they do not want to play for this type of system..You dig man. Gordon can score 35 points a night with ease, play a little D, but when he want's to upgrade his Rookie contract he is told 4 to 6 million a year; Kirk is given 13 million a year, and Kirk can't drive, can't score, can't dribble in have court, can't shoot over opposing players, is not a point gaurd. This is a joke. I hope they lose every game and Rose ask to be outright traded. Oh, and the Bulls since Borwinkle always got to have a big white boy in the middle; that is fine, but get one that can play the freaking game. Geez. Pippen surrounded by Bernie and that other coach is better than Vinny surrounded by these men. This situation is not gooing to bring out the best inthe team.
