Scott Skiles fired by the Bulls

By Sam Rubenstein

Everything is shut down for Christmas, including Scott Skiles’ tenure with the Bulls. Merry Christmas indeed! But don’t cry for Scottie, the man has no emotions.

“The fact that it’s Christmas Eve is neither here nor there,” Skiles said. “The timing doesn’t bother me. I’m not destitute.”

Sounds like a fun guy to play for. The Bulls were off to a disappointing start to say the least, I believe Russ may have briefly mentioned it in passing once or twice. But now you have a place to discuss. Once again, Merry Christmas everyone. See ya in a few days. Please no more big news items NBA until the day after the holiday tripleheader. Thanks.

    I wonder how Bulls fans feel about the Aldridge-Tyrus Thomas trade right about now? The Bulls sure could use a big guy who can score 18 points per game…

    BREAKING NEWS: Kobe wants to be traded to Chicago to take over as player AND coach.

    Very nice. Now they just have to fire Addlemen, Isiah, Cheeks and Frank… and things will be good.

    Also, what’s up with hoping for no more major basketball news? It must be real hard to update a website with a couple of lines of text and a link.

    It’s always terrible on someone loses the job, but in this case I think it’s good for both parties.
    Scott Skiles needed anger management class while the Bulls needed to rebuild their frontcourt roster.

    What is he going to tell his mother? They could have least done this on his birthday or something. damn this rap music damn it! play wit it.

  • Ben

    The only thing sadder than getting fired on Christmas Eve is the fact that in the wee hours of Christmas morning I have nothing better than to read articles on SLAM online.

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    Did someone say fire Adleman? Because it’s too early to fire Adleman. Let the man do his job already.
    And to “The Cool”: why the hell did you choose “The Cool” when you post, and then end it with “play wit it”? “The Lame” would be more appropiate. Play wit it. Fool.

    Yes, I agree. PAUL SILAS

    To be honest i am a little bit disappointed… but i think it had to happen. The bulls SUCKED with Skiles this year. I hope that it was the coach that was messing things up (not likely the case) but i just hope a new coach livens things up and that they do better! yes i am a die hard Bulls fan.

  • http://sdfjkl.com Jukai

    You’re right Gerald, WAY too early to say fire Adleman… so when Houston, with two of the best players in the NBA, don’t make the playoffs, is that too early? How about when they trade away Yao or McGrady isn’t of firing the guy clearly to blame, is it too late then? How about letting Bonzi Wells shoot bricks for 30 minutes a game and leave Shane Battier on the bench in every single major defensive set… is it too late then? C’mon. The guy is a horrible coach. I hated him in Sacremento (they had the most solid team I’ve ever seen and never made any noise in the playoffs) and now he’s here to ruin another team. I mean… look at Houston’s roster… should they REALLY be 13-15?
