Derrick Rose is about as controversial as a librarian. So even though his response as to why he thought coach Vinny Del Negro had pulled him twice at abnormal times in Sunday's loss may sound boat-rocking, it ...

Hey Vinny, Bulls fans want to see Derrick Rose in the game....Not Captain Klank.

Get a clue.

FIRE VINNY!

My cousin Vinny has got to go. It's him or Derrick Rose. This team isn't good enough for two inexperienced rookies!

I'd say the arrival of Brad Miller pretty much puts the finishing touches on Aaron Gray. I have no problem at all with Del Negro sitting D.Rose. His play today certainly dictated sitting on the bench. He was took to school by a 5'9" PG who actually embarassed him at times. The only problem was, the only alternative was Hinrich, who may be a supposed defensive guy, but he was embarassed even worse by Ford than Rose was. Those two efforts by Hinrich at the end of the game should cost him two games of not playing at all. Just a sickening effort by the Bulls PG's today, and i hope they have to watch film over and over of how they were schooled. Obviously, Rose has alot further to go than was previously thought, as i don't think i've seen worse defense played by two PG's in a long, long, time.

This is the million dollar question. Are the Bulls going to stick with Del Negro? And if so, for how long? He'll probably make it to the end of the season, and then how much longer? Dont tell me their going to stick this guy with a 3 year deal and have us eating money after half of next season. Or, keep him till 2010 and then bring in a high profile coach to go along with Wade and Amare.

I do not care what you say about this but you do not bench your franchise player. If you were watching the game he was doing a better job defending T.J. than Hinrich. The problem is the stupid offense that they run. Rose does not not need a freakn SCREEN!!!! and the team is so freakn selfish it ain't funny. Vinny needs to be fired because he can't get through to the players that the offense starts with Rose not Ben,Deng, and whoever else thinks it should be them.

You don't bench your number one option when you are down 11 in the third quarter and you don't bench him when you are down with less than five minutes to go in the fourth. What the hell do you mean you don't have a problem with it...the Bulls wouldn't be where they are now if it wasn't for Rose. He can turn it on when he wants, I knew I wasn't the only one wondering what the hell Vinny was doing. Please fire him. Tyrus was also on the bench. This stuff is uncalled for. With the reason changing, I hope the front realize we need to continue to move forward by getting rid of this coach.

Exactly, you don't do silly sh*t like bench your franchise player especially in the middle of the season when we are trying to make a playoff push. If Vinny doesn't understand that he needs to be gone. Ugh!... The ball needs to be in Derricks hands 85 percent of the time so he can create.... I really hips Vinny is fired, that would be the best news all year.

HE IS A HORRIBLE ,HORRIBLE Coach!!!! I can think of 5 games off the top of my head that Vinny has lost be himself with bonehead coaching moves. And speaking of rose, he has been the Best player this year along with gordon yet the 1st time either gets off to a slow start, Vinny yanks them in and out of the game. How can you get any type of rythym like that? Evry person in the league would tell you that they would take Rose having a bad game over Hinrich any day of the week. He was 1 of 9 but kapt klank Kirk was 1 of 7 with 2 turnovers. AND T.J Ford scored 8 straight points on kirk and his fantastic D at the crucial point in the 4th. Also, Tyrus is your best shot blocker so you watch indiana score ten straight points in the paint then you decide to put him back in with 1 minute left? Vinny is a momentum killer. When you have a guy thats hot you RIDE the hott hand not sit him on the bench for 8 minutes of a quarter like he did Gordon in the 3rd.. PAX, If thats your idea of a good coach then you are more PATHETIC then he is

I don't have a problem with Paxon staying, as long as Vinny's gone. Props for handling the situation professionally.

If you're 11 points down, you need to put a players in at guard that can...
...run the point.
...shoot.
...find the open man.
...drive to the basket and not get his shot blocked.
...create.
Rose does none of these things at all.
