John Paxson Rumors
“I owe a lot to Jerry. If it weren’t for him bringing me to Chicago in 1985, I probably never would have been a Bull,” said Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson. “He had a great eye for talent, and his ability to build a team is unrivaled. He’s one of the best the league has ever seen. We’re keeping Thelma and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”
Hoiberg was asked if it was important to him that general manager Gar Forman and vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said his job was safe and that they’ve seen growth in his coaching this season. He quickly sidestepped the question and reiterated that his only focus was winning the next game on the schedule.
