(Pictured L-R Gar Forman, Fred Hoiberg, John Paxson)
I don't know if Paxson can even survive this. I think Gar will be the fall guy for now but I wouldn't be surprised if Paxson resigns at the end of the season.
Pax survives, because of course he will.
I hope this means a return of Matt Lloyd.
Why would Lloyd want to return to this shit show? Unless Paxson was removed from power.
I just hope he does. No other reason than he was part of the better drafts the Bulls have had recently.
Also: apparently Bobby Portis liked Rondo's instagram post.
There's always the "only 30 of these jobs exist" idea... so who knows
Following the Bulls beat writers on twitter is great right now. Talking about how quiet it is in the Advocate Center because the players were in a meeting with management. Shoot-a-round going on now. Gar is apparently going to talk to the media afterwards.
Gar spoke, but no questions asked.
Said the talking to the media is unacceptable, and Butler, Wade, and Rondo were told.
Gar shouldn't have a job right now
Yeah, he needs to be fired immediately. Butler basically said he wasn't going to stop talking to reporters, and Wade more or less confirmed that Fred has no control over the locker room.
That Iowa State Mafia
Butler and Wade benched to start the game.
Watching on tape delay. Mirotic missed back to back, wide open threes by an average of two or three feet.
The first was an air ball. The second crashed off of the bottom corner of the backboard.
Butler 1/13 shooting so far.
But he loves controversy!
Top 10 NBA Player!
Rondo 32 min, 6/8 fg, 1/1 3pt, 7reb, 7ast, 3stl, +11 in a 12pt loss.
Chae's guy Grant was -17, and Buckets was -23.
I'm still trying to figure out where in his career Jimmy Butler has ever been the best player on something other than an overachieving mediocre team.
He's a solid #2 on a championship level team. You can't win a title with him as your best player
The entire fan base saw this fiasco coming when the Bulls made these roster moves last summer, but yet GarPax and Co. seem to remain oblivious on how this could have happened.
Bulls minus Butler and Wade get blown out by the Warriors.
Valentine was called up from a D league stint and was atrocious. -24 in 21 minutes, mostly because he can't shoot for shit and absolutely refused to stand anywhere near Clay Thompson. He wasn't getting drawn away on help defense or getting erased on screens. He'd just routinely wander away from one of the best outside shooters in the game, who was standing stationary in the corner while his teammates ran the offense. Not coincidentally:
Thompson 6-9 3PT
Valentine 1-7 3PT
Mirocic also continues to be garbage. -14 in 24 minutes. .286 3P% in 19 games in 2017, lowering his season average to .300. Almost all of them are wide open, completely uncontested shots because nobody bothers to close out on him any more.
That pump fake doe...
Niko is a pussy
Pump fake is surprisingly ineffective when no defender is within 10 feet of you.
Going to Minnesota for the matinee on Sunday. Taking the boy to his first basketball game.
People still watching this team?
Went to the game on Sunday; the Bulls are not a good team. The Target Center is a dump. Every seat had mad stains on it; should have brought a plastic bag to sit on. We were like third row from the top and you could hear Thibs yelling. The only good part was they have huge screens where even if you're sitting in shitty seats you can watch the game. It was really loud too; like they played the hip hops songs during play.
Have you been to a basketball game since 1996?
I have been to Bulls games and they may let it bleed into some play; but it's usually just the instrumental part. This was straight up a song.
Went to the game last night. Unreal that they called that foul at the end. Ref on the sideline was in the best position and let it go, and then the one on the baseline called it as the shot was getting to the rim.
Just had my 1st Big Mac since the last game I won one at
You knew that already from the Footy thread
Thunder receive Doug McDermott, Taj Gibson and a 2018 second-round pick for Cameron Payne, Anthony Morrow and Joffrey Lauvergne.
The McBuckets experiment is a resounding failure.
As we kinda knew the night he was drafted...
It'd be nice to see Doug used correctly.
So, considering the Bulls spent 2 first and 3 second round picks on Doug... how is Gar still employed?
Sell Jerry, Sell
What a dumb pointless trade. It's time for a house cleaning
Who wouln't want to work for Jerry? Can't get better job security than that.
But dude they can't fire management. Gar Forman's wife runs the team's charities with Michael Reinsdorf's and isn't that the most important thing? Do you hate children and poor people, chae?
I know it was two first rounders, but was it really 3 second round picks as well?
McBuckets gone. I stopped giving a shit about this team the moment he was drafted. Been fun not wasting effort on them.
Remember z calling us retards because we knew he sucked and said so? Good times
Apparently the C's 2 picks from Brooklyn were on the table
Windhorst seems to think the Bulls are high on Payne. Should be noted that Payne currently has a FG% that is worse that MCW and Rondo.
