Default Either Skiles makes changes in the lineup, or he gets fired.

As always, the Bulls start out terrible this season. 2-8...horrible yes, but that ain't no surprise now is it?


Oh wait a minute! This should be a real surprise here! This is Skiles 5th season and he has not done **** to even motivate the roster. I am sorry, but starting 2-8 isn't what the Bulls should look like.


Using the "Oh The Bulls always start like this, they don't need a trade for Pau Gasol" is no longer an excuse.


There is something wrong with this Bulls team. When things go bad, its obviously the coach's fault. He isn't doing anything to help the team out, as Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, and Kirk Hinrich are missing their shots. Skiles has been using the same damn offensive plays, NEW OFFENSE NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED SKILES!



He needs to make some roster changes. Hell, even put Aaron Gray in the lineup! Giving Thomas and Noah more playing time damnit!



I am sick and tired of his bs, he's ruining my favourite EC team with his bull**** plays and that his ****ing shiny head makes me want to ****ing puke!

Hasn't he already put Nocioni in as a starter? That's at least something.

He needs to go. He's never been a good in game coach.

He is a practice coach, period.

The best players on the team (Deng, Hinrich, Wallace) are under 35 or 30 mpg, while the WORST, Gordon, leads the team in MPG.

How can players expect to get into any sort of chemistry or rhythm when they are being pulled out every 5 minutes.

This isn't high school ball. Play your best players!

Tyrus Thomas starts the season at PF and hasn't seen the light of day since. I'm sure that's good for his future....

Default Re: Either Skiles makes changes in the lineup, or he gets fired.

IMO he should start...

Wallace (and play him 38 mins, show some confidence in the veteran)
Joe Smith (another steady vet)
Tyrus Thomas
Luol Deng
Hinrich

Play these guys 35+ mins a night, with the exception of Smith, who you play 30 mins.
Have Gray and Noah back up the bigs.

Gordon can come off the bench and give you 18 per in 25-30 mins, and Duhon can play 15-20 mins.

Dont play anyone else more than 5 or 10.

Wallace and Smith will be burnt out by All-Star weekend.

Nocioni is playing real well - he is doing more than what was expected of him...

Tyrus Thomas has no business starting for any team.

Air Gordon off the bench is a different player and makes the team so much better

How true those Kobe chants ring now...

Too late now Bulls' fans. You're stuck with your "talented young core of players". Oh, and an aging Ben Wallace. :

Too bad too, I like the Bulls...always have ever since I was a little kid...

Its not really about lineup changes...its about wins. The Bulls need to start winning games or permanent changes will have to be made.

I agree with whoever said that the Bulls have crappy offensive plays. They have been running the same plays for 4 years that barely ever work unless Gordon makes an outstanding shot or they get a penetrate and kick going. Other than that, their plays suck.

It's a mindset in Chicago. They have the Circus and thus a slow start is acceptable amongst the players. It will come back to sting them when they don't get homecourt again.

They also just aren't that good of a team.
