Chicago Bulls: Dumpster Fire Of The Year
NBA is going through a really weird week. Chicago Bulls might be the leader in the clubhouse with watching their team split at the seams with Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade against the rest of the team. Yet not far behind is LeBron James throwing a hissy fit and Carmelo Anthony trying to get out of New York. Bulls are the focus here. Butler and Wade called out players, coaches after a late-game home collapse against Atlanta on Wednesday night. The question is where do the Bulls go from here?
They really should blow it all up. Trade Dwayne Wade, Rajon Rondo and try to build around Jimmy Butler. Or see if the Minnesota Timberwolves still want Butler and try to build around one of their young players. But that’s not the Bulls philosophy which is led by Jerry Reinsdorf. He didn’t do it with his baseball team, Chicago White Sox, but thankfully for them, Rick Hahn saved their team from mediocrity, and now Sox are one of the best young teams in baseball. Bulls need to find their own Hahn.
There’s no reason why Gar Forman and Jim Paxson should have a job. Both executives did a terrible job keeping this team together. They haven’t a draft pick since Butler pan out. Same goes for free agent signings. The only good thing they did was trade Derrick Rose, but they brought on Rondo not expecting issues that could arise with three guys with a similar personality. The logical first step for this Bulls team is let a new set of eyes take a look at this clusterfuck of a team.
As a Milwaukee resident and Bucks fan, I selfishly hope Bulls remain with more drama than most Bravo shows.
