Forman-Thibodeau ‘feud’ is nonsense, says Bulls VP Paxson

John Paxson would like names. One name several — it really didn’t matter Monday to the Bulls’ vice president of basketball operations who just wants someone to step up and ‘‘be a man.’’ In a Yahoo Sports story published Sunday the relationship between Bulls general manager Gar Forman and coach Tom Thibodeau was described as a ‘‘distrust’’ and ‘‘downright...

Chicago Bulls make big front office moves

The Chicago Bulls made some moves today in the front office. Randy Brown was promoted to Assistant General Manager. So he’ll be right below “GarPax” in the organization.

John Paxson: ‘Marketing’ (aka Adidas) Keeping Dwight Howard from Chicago Bulls

Earlier this week, we shared a report that said Adidas may want to keep Dwight Howard from joining the Chicago Bulls because they want to keep their star athletes (Derrick Rose is the other) in separate markets. That’s probably why you didn’t see the Bulls on Dwight’s list of teams where he would like to be traded. Bulls VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson essentially...
