PBT Extra: It’s time for a coaching change in Chicago

19 Comments

Watching the Chicago Bulls lay down for the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6, it became clear:

The Chicago Bulls need a new coach.

It’s time for Tom Thibodeau to move on (likely to New Orleans). It’s not that Thibodeau isn’t a good coach, but this team clearly needs a new voice and a new direction.

Beyond that, whoever comes in will have a lot of roster questions to answer: Just how much can Derrick Rose really give anymore? What about Joakim Noah? Can Tony Snell and Doug McDermott be real contributors on a regular basis? There are many more.

Just getting a new coach is not enough in Chicago.
