the Rose isolation play at the end of the game has not worked all season....they need to come up with a better where he can kick it out to an open man....or even give Gordon the ball up top and have him go around a screen for a jumper

Boy, is this a familiar script. Meltdown at the end of the game. Perhaps one day the Bulls will comeback and win one on the road. Still this was a much better effort than in Orlando. Eventually, the Bulls will get tired of getting their a** kicked. But until the Bulls make an effort to make defensive stops that day is a long way off.

Del-Clueless was the one that cost the Bulls the game. With less than one minute left, the Bulls needed a stop on defense. And the lineup of Rose, Hinrich, Salmons, Thomas and Miller. With Hinrich on Igaudala???? Come on Vinny. You have bigs. Put Salmons on Igaudala, Tyrus or Tim at SF, get the stop you need, secure the rebound..

Vinny is as clueless as they come. And the other two veteran coaches on the bench are even more clueless.

This team doesn't deserve anything but a lottery ping pong ball.

Look at the bright side. Paxson says he is staying! Can't wait to see what he wears when they pull the ping-pong balls.

I have no idea how Paxson can live with himself after the past 2 seasons? Paxson is an utter an complete failure and should be fired due to his incompetence. Perhaps he can get another gig as the radio color commentator, a position he thrived in.

Hiring a rookie coach when your team needs a direction, attitude, toughness and is very young? A monkey would've picked any other coach than Vinny Del-Clueless.

Ben where are you when we need you to score 40+pts in Philly? You have been wanting more than $10 mil a year but where is the consistency? Can't even defend? Thomas keep dribbling the ball and ending up a turn over? When are you going to learn to pass the ball? Sorry but as a fan we are tired. It has been 10 years since the MJ Era and tired of watching same game every night. Bring a good coach and a low post player like Chris Bosh.

He is way dumber.And Queer to boot!But much tougher.Know it all who knows nothing.Blow punk.

The answer is to bring Scottie Pippen back as manager and give him 3 years to see how much better than VDN than Paxson believes he can be. Who played better defense?

So, vinny dumb a@@'s answer is that turnovers killed them huh? How about the fact that you kept forcing Miller, Tim Thomas and Hinrich down our throats when it was pretty obvious that the sixers athletic players had them way overmatched. Why was Noah taken out of the game when he was playing so well? What happened to Tyrus Thomas? Is del negro really just that stupid or he is stubborn or what? I wonder how many points could Gordon score on a nightly basis if he had the luxury of knowing that no matter how overmatched and ineffective he was he wouldn't be removed from the game like hinrich does? del numb nuts, you are truly THE worst NBA head coach I've ever seen in my life and I hope that your time in Chicago has been a one year experiment that mercifully comes to an end soon. If we had a real coach we could easily be looking at 35 to 40 wins right now but we're stuck with this clown because the bulls would rather overpay for overrated players (Hinrich, Deng) than pay for a real coach.

Seems that the Bulls scratch and claw their way to get within five games of .500, then lose 2-3 in a row. They just can't get over the hump, especially on the road.

It's sort of interesting to see Noah starting to play well. He's actually had a few games where he has had double-digit rebounds.

Unfortunately, it seems like the organization and team are wandering aimlessly. Like a rudderless ship. No leadership. No coaching. No GM. Etc.

But the good news is that they are right on course with the post-Jordan era rebuilding efforts. Krause always wanted to prove that he could build a winner without Jordan around. And boy, he proved his point....and then handed the torch off to another fine GM in Johnny Pax.

It's highly interesting that these jokers sell out the United Center night after night with this roster of also-rans and wannabees.

I've got news for you KC Johnson; who gives a sh*t that del numb nuts was "as hot as he's ever been?" He should be mad at himself for being so consistently stupid by taking guys out of the game who are playing well and there's a flow with the other guys on the court (NOAH) and replacing them with slow, unathletic bozos (miller & hinrich) who aren't really contributing anything. Wasn't it obvious to del numb nuts that the 76ers have several athletic guys who were running past and jumping over these busters? Hinrich is nothing more than a WAY over priced back-up player. Concentrate and comment on how to dump his salary rather than always talking about reasons not to sign a guy who actually could contribute on a consistent basis (Gordon) if he isn't jerked in & out of games by an obvious overmatched clown like del numb nuts!
