Vinny Del Negro’s run with the Clippers has reportedly come to an end.
I don’t like the Bulls team we have seen lately, the one acting like undisciplined, unprofessional idiots while antagonizing officials and whining about calls.
Del Negro was a curious choice from the outset in Chicago, where he believed a warmed-over Jim Valvano impersonation constituted coaching.
While the Chicago Bulls fell a few wins short of reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since the 1997-98 season, they were really only one player away from beating the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
Other than Derrick Rose, Luol Deng may not only be the most important player for the Bulls, but he might also be the most improved player. Under former head coach Vinny Del Negro, Deng was non-factor on most nights.
Coming into the season, people expected good things from the Chicago Bulls, but it’s safe to say that no one expected them to have the best record in the NBA and the league’s Coach of the Year and Most Valuable Player.
The Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics are battling for the Eastern Conference’s top seed, and the home court advantage that comes with it.
They may have missed out on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but the New Jersey Nets could still be coming away with a pretty good player. According to a report, the Nets have traded for point guard Deron Williams.
