Del Negro Needs To Go

The Bulls head coach Vinny Del Negro wonders why his job was in jeopardy when the Bulls were giving away games. Even with the Bulls recent success Del Negro is still making a poor decision. That decision is starting Taj Gibson over Tyrus Thomas. Tyrus Thomas is one of the major reasons Del Negro still has a job and Del Negro is repaying him by making him come off the pine. This season the Bulls are just 8-16 when Thomas doesn’t play. Since Thomas has come back from injury the Bulls are 13-6 essentially saving their season. They say athletes don’t lose their starting spots because of injury try telling that to Thomas. Thomas is far more athletic than Gibson and provides the Bulls with a better defender and rebounder as well as block shot ability. If one was to compare their numbers per 48 minutes one would find that Thomas has better numbers almost across the board. I said this when the Bulls first drafted Gibson and still stand by it, he’s a poor man’s Tyrus Thomas. The decision to start Gibson over Thomas is like driving a Pinto when you have a Porsche.

  1. TT is no porsche buddy. Taj is a great player with a future in the team, Tyrus is an over-rated under achiever with a bad work ethic and even worse jump shot, hopefully hell be gone gone by Feb 18, if not hope he finally gets his sh*t together and starts playing consistent basketball.

  2. agreed he be on good bullshit about tyrus he's NEED more playing time
