What's up folks..broadcasting in Baltimore
Thibs as Col Jessup: "You people just weakened a franchise!''
Bulls next season: Each guy plays 24 minutes, and participation medals are handed out at the end of the year. Can't wait!
Heard Paul Konerko was asked to be a coach/player for the Bulls, but turned it down.
I mean the Robin Ventura thing has worked out so well ... what could possibly go wrong?
Can't wait for the new coach to deal with the Rose-Butler stare down that's coming. Thibs had that under control.
Joakim Noah: "I just want to thank Thibs for all the hard work he put in and I wish him the best."
JVG speaks for himself. But can't emphasize enough how much his Jan. comments angered Reinsdorf, previously an oasis for Thibodeau.
In the long run this will be a better situation for Thibodeau. Free agent, and can basically pick and choose where and when he wants to work
Opinion, not reporting: Not standing up for Ron Adams' dismissal really hurt Thibs. Lost power struggle. Could've said: "He's gone. I walk."
Source: Thibs was actually tipped off of the firing late last night, and as far as the assistant coaches most of them will be gone.
There would probably be some lively debate about who is more at fault for that culture, but the bosses always have the last word.
Hoiberg is recovering from heart surgery and has obviously kept low profile. Several close to him confident he's ready for NBA challenge.
Jimmy Butler declined comment regarding Thibs situation. Players and assistants still filing in and out of Advocate Center.
Thibs pulled into the Advocate Center parking lot around 11 am CT. He pulled out around around 11:45 CT after news was announced.
Fred Hoiberg is leading candidate to replace Thibodeau, who had been telling those close to him he'd be fired by Friday. Told at AM mtng.
I sense a black/white thing (metaphorically). Either you're with Thibs or with the front office. My sense is this is much more gray
I like this quote from Gar Forman in the press release: "Over the last five years we have had some success with Tom as our head coach."
The statement definitely shows this wasn't an amicable marriage or divorce. You wonder if either side truly respected the other's talents
Bulls executives John Paxson and Gar Forman will address the media at 2 CT.
At least Paxson never had a chance to punch this coach before he fired him. So there's that....
Bulls officially dismiss Thibodeau.
Statement from Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf: http://t.co/5S8v6oX5R6
Bulls announce Tom Thibodeau has been dismissed as head coach.
Bulls announce they've fired Tom Thibodeau
Thibs is out.
Bulls announce they have fired head coach Tom Thibodeau.
Coincidentally, those three years are the same three years that the Pax coat-tailed three rings off two guys that didn't care about minutes.
Interesting Pippen stats: Minutes per gm reg season: 1991 (36.8), '92 (38.6), '93 (38.6) - Playoffs '91 (41.4), '92 (40.9), '93 (41.5).
Some interesting Jordan stats: Minutes per gm reg season 1991 (37), '92 (38.8), ''93 (39.3) - Playoffs '91 (40.4), '92 (41.8), '93 (41.2).
Welcome to hot and steamy Camden Yards in Baltimore ! http://t.co/fyFABncaQ3
Bulls would have had Riley Curry pulled off that stage halfway through that interview. Minutes restrictions.
My guy Raymond Ridder trying his best not to let Riley take over
Riley is not having y’all criticism. Deal with it
Rick Berry is pissed y’all waiting till now to show his highlights
Festus will be HUGE against Cleveland because the Cavs are so physical up front
Warm up the boat. Houston’s going fishing
Ames, Iowa stand up!
Now Ariza is the definition of being in the wrong place at the wrong time for two injuries. Not y’all boy Delly
Oh boy. Direct hit to Klay’s head
Good Dwight. Bad Dwight
They are sitting on Harden’s left hand for that crossover. They’ve watched a lot of film on that and Harden’s gone lemonbooty with the TO's
Source reiterated tonight Collins was one of several coaches the front office wanted to try and add to the staff. Love this beat.
Bulls, Pelicans emerging as suitors for Royce White's NBA comeback in July, sources tell RealGM. Former 16th pick is deciding among several.
Channeling positive vibes to the Blackhawks from Baltimore !
Fantastic 2016 NBA All Star logo ! http://t.co/MbVVN9oftF
Take it for what it’s worth but sources say no team has asked the Bulls for permission to talk to coach Tom Thibodeau
Belated Happy Birthday to the Big Hurt !!
Reported this last week but bears repeating: Bulls would grant permission to any team seeking to talk to Thibodeau. No team has asked.
There s only one Hawk. The Sox staff has been great and of course Sox fans. It's on to Baltimore !
Thanks for watching Sox baseball ...thanks for your patience!!! Working with Steve Stone is a pleasure !
Finally, the Who's Better, Jordan/LeBron debate reaches a more sophisticated level: "Is so!" "Is not!" "Is so!" "Is not!"
Congratulations to the Atlanta Hawks on a spectacular season !
.... made extinct in two years by the evolution of the West Coast offense. No staying power.
When Chicago fans cans start embracing what James is doing, they can also start accepting the 85 Bears for the gimmick defense they were ...
And enough of the James quit on Cleveland and Miami. MJ quit on the Bulls, and for some really mysterious reasons .... real mysterious.
MJ needed Pippen and Rodman to get past the Bad Boys and win 6. LeBron can get Boobie Gibson to the NBA Finals. That is greatness.
MJ was great, but no one makes those around him better than the King. That is true greatness in a team sport.
LeBron left Cleveland and they went from 61 wins to 19. Wrap your arms around that. Then he leaves Miami and they go from 54 wins to 37.
...one year later.
Jordan was great ... there is no debating that. Six titles tells that story. But let's not forget, 57 wins with MJ in 92-93, 55 w/out him...
Funny how things work out. Tristan Thompson plays well in playoffs, now pushing for max deal. Does this mean Love will move on?
Bulls fans continue experiencing what it was like to be every other team outside Chicago in the 90s. Bow to the King!
Only resistance Bron's Cavs had in the East was from a hand-cuffed, soft Bulls team that Thibs had to squeeze life from to get to a GM 6.
So how is that "Ozzie needs to go" campaign working out for you? Guessing the same way the "Thibs must go" campaign will end up.
I don't care who is coaching the Bulls next season -- I think this group let its best chance to get to Finals pass them by this year.
The Bulls will look back on 4th quarter of Game 4 against Cavs in Eastern Conference semis and wonder what might have been for a long time.
Don't worry Sox fans ..... Coop will fix 'em.
Magic did it from 82-85. Bird did it from 84-87. If there was ever a doubt the Cavs could get there, it was LeBron going to 5 straight
With a few more rounds the Bulls playoffs may look pretty good the way the Clippers and Hawks are going out.
Thanks for watching. Tough loss. Back at it again tomorrow !
Sox have scored 9 runs. This is not I repeat NOT a typo! Great game in the 8th
When will people understand I don’t play for the teams I cover, so I have no real skin in their success of lack thereof?
Here’s my list of Shaq sweeps in order of worst to excusable: 95 Rockets. 07 Bulls. 98 Jazz 99 Spurs 94 Pacers 96 Bulls.
