Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf has called this year's season "a disaster" and has admitted there have been times he's wanted to boo his own team for their performance.

He expressed confidence in GM Jim Paxson, while implying that he blamed part of it on coach Vinny Del Negro.

Y'know... as a fan of the 19-29, I'd be happy to trade records with the 21-27 Bulls right now if he wants. Of course I'm sure the Clippers and Wizards-- who have one less win between them than the Bulls have total-- would be even happier to.

Well, he's right, and he's not putting blame where it should go. Pax built this mess, a lot of it is his fault, including the hiring of Vinny the Black.

Being a little bit better than the worst teams in the league doesn't invalidate his point.

Del Negro has looked completely over matched with both in-game strategy and dealing with players - he may have lost the team already and he's a big factor in their fourth quarter fades. He's got to be in the bottom five of current coaches.

However, Reinsdorf has somewhat since clarified his comments, which seem to be more issues with the assistant coaches (Del Harris & Bernie Bickerstaff were expected to take on a stronger role as ex-coaches helping out a first time coach) and the coaches not being all on the same page. Vinny is on year 1 of a 3 year deal and they're still paying the last coach, so they probably won't be hiring another one soon.

I've read somewhere, and it may just be Blog-A-Bull commenters bloviating, that VDN has kind of forced them to take a back seat to his whims and desires. Which, as the head coach, he has every right to do, but as one with zero experience, it would seem to be a foolish mistake.

I'm still waiting for a legitimate explanation as to why a medicore former player with no coaching experience at any level was hired to coach one of the NBA's signature franchises. What did they expect to happen?

Hard to say. I think that Amare will be the better player in the longrun, but then again I thought that Yao wasn't going to be that good either.
