I was A huge bulls fan. I say WAS because the way this off season has played out I think the organization is out of whack. I can't believe they have made themselves look so incompetent in the coaching search. I thought that Doug Collins was a good choice but some how that was goofed up.
Now I here that Vinny Del Negro is going to be the coach. WHAT? If Scott Skiles couldn't get these guys to play how is Vinny Del Negro?
I am very disappointed. Jerry Reinsdorf is the one to blame. He clearly is the real Bulls GM. He is not letting John Paxson do the job. I think John Paxson should take the high road and tell Jerry Reinsdorf to take the GM job and shove it.
I can honestly say that next season is not going to be fun to watch. I feel bad for whomever the Bulls pick with the first pick in the draft. They clearly are going to have a hard time developing in the mess that is The Chicago Bulls.

Vinny Del Negro rode the pine when he played. I really don't think he has anything to offer the Bulls but a repeat season or worse then last season. The Bulls need to make some big trades to make up for the coaching hire. They should have got Pippen to coach or Johnny Bach.They know way more about the game and what it takes to win then That loss Del Negro. I thought the guy dropped off the face of the earth after he stopped playing. He's right up there with Ronny Sikley,Fat Lever and Bryant Reeves. There all on my What ever happened to list.
