Exactly what did Paxson accomplish in the off season?

FIRE PAXSON. Hire a real coach and General Manager.

Lets take a look at the last batch of Bulls coaches:

Tim Floyd (First time NBA head coach and an unmitigated disaster). Win/Loss Record: 49-190. No playoff appearances in four years.

Bill Cartwright (First time NBA coach after a short run as an assistant coach....mild disaster).

Scott Skiles (Fired by the Phoenix Suns, known for wearing out his welcome with players. With the Bulls, Skiles led the Bulls on three playoff runs, followed by disaster. Under Skiles the team never had more than 49 regular season victories).

Vinny Del Negro (to early to call. However, VDN doesn't instill much confidence. First time NBA head coach weighed down with a guard heavy and selfish roster. Looks confused on the sideline and it appears as if the players are not listening to him).

Basically, every one here has observed the Bulls' shortcomings. Why can't management? And, why do they reward these lackeys, cowards, light-weights, these sissy-men with ten's of millions of dollars in long-term contracts? If we can't get Deng to take the ball to the basket or to take a charge, he ought to be gone, not signed to a 10-year deal ..... What is wrong with these idiots that work for Reinsdorf? Oh, and should we be criticizing Larry Hughes when he and Rose are about the only guys on this dreadful squad who aren't afraid to take the ball to the hoop and beat his man off the dribble ....? The answer is "NO". We need Hughes and his offensive game .... it incorporates more than off-balance, desperation jump shots.

Well said Mark and Paula. Nothing personal, it's just that he's incompetent as a GM. The damage has been done. Fire him. Fire John Paxson now. Also, I'm not crazy about Hughes, but he at least does have a multi-dimensional game/takes it to the basket.
