View Full Version : Would any coach worth his salt want the Chicago job?

With the way the Bulls' front office handled Phil Jackson's departure, and the way they are currently treating Thibs, coupled with the fact that they let talented players walk away, is there seriously a coveted coach who would want that job?

It seems like the front office wants to run the team. The coach gets no support. They let key players go on a regular basis, and you get no support.

Seem to me like the guys running this organization don't appreciate how teams like the Spurs build a legit contender, and why teams like New York (revolving door of players and coaches) can't seem to put a contender together.

Reinsdorf seems to have a knack at hiring GMs that clash with coaches and players and handle the press extremely poor with keeping the media out of their internal business.

But of course there will be coaches lined up to take the job at the right salary and number of guaranteed seasons.

And BTW you mentioned Phil, but Reinsdorf clashed with Doug Collins, and Gar/Pax with Del Negro with a reported fist fight happening with the later. The owner always seems to have these conflicts or hires guys who have these conflicts. Jerry Krause clashed with Jordan and Pippen for years.

But as I said, it's absurd what you're suggesting. With the right money anything is possible, and people will line up for that job.
