Why are people surprised. Paxson said they intended to keep him around as a head coach...as such he needed to get a raise from his assistant coaches salary. This is what annoys me...people use this to refer to the bulls as being a dumpster fire. There are reasons to call them that...this is not one of them. And they aren’t the Browns. Lol. Let me know when the Browns has any of the success Pax had over his tenure as GM. 

It’s a tired argument but had ping pong ball not go our way, we wouldn’t even have mustered the 2 season of upper east echelon status during the Rose era. So I’m not quite sure what success you’re referring to.

To Paxson’s credit, the team has generally drafted well during his tenure, but everything else have been a disaster, from the hiring of unqualified coaches, to the fallouts with multiple coaches, toxic lockeroom relationships, training staff incompetence, poor decisions in the trade market, inability to recruit free agents, selling draft picks for capital during rebuild, reluctance to spend on international scouting, and worse of all, despite Forman’s incompetency, he has been given immunity indefinitely.

At this rate, future free agents will not see Bulls for the glory from the Jordan days, but a laughing stock of a franchise where complacency and incompetence are accepted, and a front office that’s completely out of touch with the rest of the league.

Dumpster. Fire.

I hope people understand just how bad that offensive rating is in the modern NBA.  About 4 points worse than the next worse team in the league per 100 possessions.  That is astonishingly bad and while this roster is trash it is no worse than the other garbage teams around the league.

A dumpster fire would be telling the interim coach you aren’t going to pay him any more...which is what the cheap Cavs tried to do after firing Tyron Lue. They tried to neuter the assistant coach. The bulls have tried to support their coach (at least this time and for now). 

 

I’ve truly never understood your fascination with always giving the Bulls a pass. We’ve known each other a LONG time and it’s the one thing I can never understand lol. 

Jason, the Bulls are the laughing stock of the league right now. They are being run like it’s a different decade. Right now, the offense is centered around getting Lopez looks in the low post.

The Bulls are the worst ran organization in sports right now.

I bet the bulls get back to playoffs before the Sox do. If the Bulls are a dumpster fire, the Sox are whatever is four times worse.

I think Rick Hahn is the worst GM in baseball and no.

They better get a top 2 pick in the NBA draft this offseason or I don't see it happening soon, especially if they are going to keep this clown of a coach for an extended period.

I've never said Boylen is awesome (or even good)but I'll save my conclusions until the end of the year. Teams as young as the Bulls suck in the NBA with extremely rare exception (throughout the history of the NBA).

They should considering the NBA gets twice as many playoff teams.  Even then, I wouldn't bet on it.

You all do realize he was already under contract next year, right? All they did was bump his pay a bit since he is now the head coach. Just like what would happen to any of us if we got promoted into a new job. I still think he's gone at the end of the year unless he turns it around. Pax has to make the comments he does because you need to ensure players don't run the show and they probably needed some of this toughness. 

 

And by by the way, the Bulls reported they would be doing this right when they fired Fred. This isn't even news. It isn't like they actually extended him today (and this whole thing was done previously.)

I high doubt it, and as SS2K5 point out, it’s a a lot easier to make playoffs in NBA.

Least with the Sox, there are 4-5 elite prospects they could build their team around. In a superstar driven league, the Bulls do not have anyone who resembles one. I know you tend to have an optimistic outlook on this team, but I just don’t seem how Sox are in a worse situation (especially if we land a whale), let alone 4x worse.

There also is some semblance of a plan with the Sox, something we’ve been asking for for far too long. 

The Bulls? What’s the plan here? Sitting WCJ in the 4th for Robin Lopez?

I just don't understand Jason giving the Bulls a pass this time, but disliking Markkanen.

They literally got nothing for an all time top 50 player in Pippen.  Look at the return for those players, just sickening

I've said it before but looking back Krause really was planning a modern form of team building that was derailed by:

- a truly awful set of years to draft high

- a lack of patience

He had the right ideas and drafted well, then threw it all away starting with the jalen rose trade, and making a push to get better in the first draft year that would have changed the franchise for a generation: 2003. Where the bulls could have drafted Lebron melo or wade, and apparently held onto a vet and did not consummate a trade that would have brought wade and started bringing in more established college prospects.

The Paxson era was on.

I find the way bulls have treated Lopez as rude. I know people feel like he's getting paid anyway. But you only get so many years of your life you can play in NBA, bulls benched for half the year last year and now this. Let the guy go.

Apparently he needs to quit hustling or something.
