It's great to hear that the players respect Del Negro, and that he is especially patient with the young players. Perhaps all of the people who were screaming when he was selected as coach were rushing to judgment. Of course, I suppose most people measure success by the won-loss record. I think given time (and management getting some quality players in the future to complement Rose), the record will take care of itself.

I hope Vinne develops into a great head coach but the Bulls still need a big man coach. Someone like ex-Bull big man guru, Clifford Ray.

Well its all good that Vinnie in his first rebuilding year is all understanding. I just wonder about all those corporations that have paid top dollar for average teams feel in these economic times about year ten being no closer to a championship than year one. More importantly a Family paying over $200 bucks to enjoy a game from the rafters with this John Paxs Crap Squad.
Ole Jerry going on the cheap with the fans because all of this money that poooor Jerry has to pay to an X coach, Bad player or Two.
Although I watch a lot of Bulls games and White Sox games for that matter I haven't paid to see either since the Stadium, White Sox Park Days.
Jerry is an Easy Read. It's all about the Money.........

I'd feel sorry for any boys you have who when ask if they could go to a game are told "No, we aren't going to any games becuase I think the owners cheap".

Take a look around Chicago for owners who have World Championships. You'll only find one that has, and he brought 7 of them. I only wish he owned the Blackhawks too.

Poor ol Luol Deng, if the guy's not injured, he's ill. Hopefully he's bought himself a good health insurance plan with some of that 71 mil.

I watched the Vince Carter refereeing debacle and will not watch any more NBA games til the league straightens out this situation, I don't care how good Rose is.

Okay, so Vinny's a tolerable Coach. That's not good enough. Impress me when I see evidence of him and his coaches adjusting the Bulls' defense to minimize the opposing player's strengths (like Teams do for Rose). The Bobcats drove to the basket at will, while players lunged to reach and no one rotated to help nor did they pack it in to dare the Bobcats to beat them from the outside.
