Hey Jerry, can Hawk move over to the Bulls' GM job? Help us, we're imploding! 0-2 in making announcers your GM.

The Bulls are playing like the Oklahoma City Thunder the first half of the season. The Thunder are playing like, well, better than the Bulls the first half of the season.

Gordon, Hughes, Noah. All three should be gone before the end of the season! I just cannot stand this team anymore and those three are good examples why. Just think, two years ago this was a fun team to watch. Now I'd rather watch Poker than this sorry bunch.

What in the Hell is this "falsely accused of the transgression" crap??

He was either late, or he wasn't...... What's there to argue?

These Bulls have the emotional maturity of Grade School kids.

John Paxson and Vinnie Del Negro should be fired and Big Jerry should be removed from his role as well. We need some new blood in the organization starting at the top as its been a decade now .I cant believe we went talking nba title contenders when we overpaid Big Ben to all of sudden in the middle of a long drawn out rebuilding process just by removing him .

We took Tyrus Tabo when we couldve had Roy or Aldridge or even Rondo .

We took Noah awhen we obviously shouldve been making a move for a proven all star to anchor the squad .

We gave Krause 5 seasons and he started from the bottom .Pax is now at his 5th season and he started with 4-5 lottery picks in the fold.

Yet, they are number 2 in attendance in the entire NBA. They draw more than Boston, LA, Orlando, New Orleans, etc. except Detroit!! 20+k still turnout and pay top dollar to see these kindergartners. Inspite of the fact that they just raised ticket prices. Why doesn't KC cover that i.e. why do people continue to pay good money to watch this nonsense. Newsflash, you can listen for free on NBA.com if you absolutely can't live without d-league basketball. BTW, NHL allstar game is Saturday. Blackhawks have 3 allstars and they all start. GO BLACKHAWKS! Anyone care to wonder if ANY Bull, to include Rose, makes the allstar team? Yet people still pay to watch this.
