Andrew wrote:That's the nagging thought I have. Even if they did blow everything up and bottom out, could they do anything worthwhile after that? Would their reign of terror come to an end, and someone else get a chance? How many more bad years and mistakes would have to be endured before they were sent packing?

Although they said back then that they'll not fire Thibs... There's a pretty tempting standing offer from the Celtics for Butler (Crowder, Smart + 1st rounds from Nets for 2017 and 2018) so let's see what will happen on the trade deadline.

Entire lottery rebuilding process is to get someone like Butler and build upon it. Giving up on superstar in prime prematurely usually dont pan out too well in hindsight. Keep him and explore ways to tank with him on roster. The Heat did it with young Wade and got Beasley. In fact, you can tank smartly even with superstar on roster and rebuild. For instance, you can lose via simply tweaking rotations. Teams been doing it for decades in subtle manner. Isnt Butler's talent way too hard to come by to give up?

Just so incredibly low and despicable.

I mean, I guess we can't verify it's accuracy 100%, but given all the other stories that have emerged over the years - and the fact they date back to previous front office regimes in the championship years - it's more than plausible to say the least. I'm certainly inclined to believe it.
Andrew wrote:In all fairness, some of them might not be actively defending GarPax as much as questioning whether or not this particular story is accurate, or exaggerated. That said, I'm not sure why any Bulls fans would be inclined to disbelieve it, at this point in time.

Reinsdorf finally committed to a full rebuild with the Sox. Kahn looks like he is finally in charge. There's still hope!

I've got nothing against Melo I think he's an amazing player but he wants and wanted the knicks to try and win now when it was clear we needed to rebuild. I just wish we could undo the Derrick Rose trade and then we wouldn't of wasted money on Noah.

According to a report from Mike Adamle of NBCChicago.com, the Bulls and Lakers have discussed a deal that would send Jimmy Butler and Michael Carter-Williams to Los Angeles in exchange for Louis Williams, Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle.
While Adamle is the only one reporting this rumor at this time, he has since doubled down on the fact that trade talks are ongoing as he is reporting that Chicago has attempted to re-engage Los Angeles in trade talks now that Magic Johnson is running the show for the Purple and Gold.
