Ok Paxson careful what you wish for because your buffer is gone. This is all on you now. Feel the pressure? You should because the fans aren't stupid. They know why this team sucks..

New coach, same result. You either have the great talent as a player or you don't. Let's face it, the Bulls just don't have the talent to hang with the best in the NBA. Doesn't matter who is coaching them.

I alway find it amazing when the Coach is fired, but the General Manager stays...

I mean, who is more at fault...the guy who is coaching the bad players...

Or the General Manager who got the bad players in the first place?

Wow, another huge game for Ben Wallace and Company...I wonder what John Paxson is going to do with his team now...Skiles couldn't do anything with this bunch this year...it's pretty obvious no other assistant coach on the Bulls can do any better...I just hope Paxson is out of a job at the end of this miserable season...let's face it, Paxson has worn out his welcome here...it's time to get basketball people in the front office for John Paxson's team...what stuns me even more is Paxson thinks there is still something to play for this year...and he's right, I want that number 1 pick...and aslong as guys like Ben Wallace and Ben Gordon and Kirk Hinrich are on the team, it's going to be lottery city for John Paxsons team...Joe Smith, Joakim Noah, real difference makers...not...

Yes, it will be difficult to beat Seattle and N.Y. to get the worst record but I've got my fingers crossed. There is some real scoring talent for next year but they're in the backcourt. Nevertheless, it is time to tank this season and then tank Paxson. We need someone who understands the game from a big man's perspective. Tired of building around guards.

When will the GM wake up and realize that it is the players that are responsible for what is happening on the court. Then the GM will take accountability for his lack of production in selecting the best players.

"Those are the guys who won those positions in camp," Myers said. "There's no need for changing now. It's hard to change things within a few days." With that kind of attitude there is little reason for hope. What's the point of firing the coach and then making no changes? It's stupid and the results, like last night, predictable and disasterous.

Boy, it really made a huge difference with Skiles gone didn't it? Great game Bulls! First 5 guys are terrible including Deng! Put their a__es on the pines for a while and let others play with some pride and passion. Oh ya, Deng and Gordon keep holding out for the big paycheck!!! You are really proving yourselves worth it. Heinrich go to a shrink and get your head straight or take shooting lessons from someone. Paxson you had better do something quick or this is going to be the days of 5-6 years ago. Spend the money you saved on Gordon and Deng on someone who is worth it and wants to play basketball.

Popovich said. "He[Skiles] was a demanding, hard-nosed, knowledgeable guy who did a good job, a guy who was creative, dedicated, who worked his butt off " We have lost a wonderful coach and gave in to the pouting of overpaid , spoiled brats-beginning with Wallace, Deng, Gordon, Heinrich and Thomas. I am shocked Paxson gave in to these weaklings I would rather have Skiles suit-up and show them how to play with fire and determination. This is sad for Chicago.

Rick Bucher from ESPN reported that this came from Reinsdorf. This makes sense due to fact that Paxson is well-aware that he will be scrutinized more than ever and now it is a referendum on Paxson's personnel choices from now to the end of the year.

Chicago does not need a new coach..they need a leader on the court..they take bad shots and can't seem to play together as a team..did they ever hear the word defense?
Defense is the name of the game, not how many bad shots you take..they have good players but they need
someone to direct the play on the court..they have
the same starters they had last year and they were in
the playoffs..WHAT HAPPEN? It certainly wasn't Scott's fault..Wake up Bulls, the season is going down the
tubes..

This miserable team and season is already a test of the talent (not) and personnel that Paxson has assembled over last 4 years. Remember when commentators suggested the Bulls were assembling a lot of nice "pieces". They're not saying that any more. The so-called core, young talent is anything but. They are role players, off-the-bench players, etc. And, to the person whose remark critiqued Skiles' penchant for focusing on guard play; no problem with that as long as you've got guards that are tall enough, pack the pounds, muscle and athleticism, and guts, to perform multiple roles, including attacking the basket and intimidating those they defend...Jason, Artest, Kobe, Deron, etc. Beside their other faults, the Bulls are a gutless bunch of sissies with no outside/inside game. Shaping up to be a race-to-the-bottom kind of season with no pot of gold (good draft picks) as the reward. And, oh, does it hurt to see the numbers that Tyson continues to put up in New Orleans.

just take hinrich out of the starting line-up. thats it. the bulls will slowly become a formidable team. hinrich has no clue out there. trade him if you can. i doubt if any team wants him though. worth a try. maybe we can get a late draft pick for him.
