NBA Goat of the Week
Scott Skiles – Skiles was fired today as coach of the Bulls thanks to his leading the team to a 9-16 record through the first 25 games of the season. Outside of the Celtics and Pistons, the Bulls might have more talent than any other team in the East and they were just not getting it done. His strict, no-nonsense attitude seemed to be working last year, but this year the entire team has tuned him out. Anyone who has watched the Bulls much at all this year knows that they have been an absolute mess. Players did not know if they were playing and how much each night due to Skiles constant shifting rotation. And this team has been abysmal shooting the ball all season long… maybe Scotty should be worrying more about his players practicing their shots instead of whether or not Ben Wallace should be able to wear a headband.
