Doc Rivers Says Bulls Would Be ‘Nuts’ to Let Tom Thibodeau Go

 

The Chicago Bulls’ front office has been shaking things up in the Windy City. After the firing of assistant coach Ron Adams this summer and the Luol Deng trade earlier this month, new feet may fill head coach Tom Thibodeau’s shoes too. But despite Thibodeau and the front office’s unsteady relationship, Doc Rivers (who worked with Thibs during the ’08 Celtic championship run) says the Bulls would be “nuts” to fire his former assistant coach. Per ESPN:

“Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers believes his good friend Tom Thibodeau will be coaching the Chicago Bulls next season. He also believes the Bulls would be ‘nuts’ to let Thibodeau go.

‘He’s under contract, so yeah,’ Rivers said before Friday’s shootaround. ‘I don’t know why he wouldn’t be. I think it would be nuts not to have him here. He’s the best coach, one of the best coaches in this league. So if you have that, that’s an asset. And I don’t think any right-minded organization would allow that asset to leave. Because with all this adversity they’ve had with injuries, if you allow that one to leave, things will fall apart. And that would be pretty much a guarantee.’”

    “He’s the best coach, one of the best coaches in this league. So if you have that, that’s an asset. And I don’t think any right-minded organization would allow that asset to leave… Unless of course he threatens retirement and forces his way out of his contract to coach another, more promising franchise”

    Had to fix that quote for Doc.
