How the Chicago Bulls self-destructed after Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson left

    As a Bulls fan, one of the teams biggest and most recurring problems is giving up too easily. In the 2014-15 season, they had a pretty stellar lineup (including a mostly healthy D. Rose) and seemed poised to make it to the finals before LeBron and the Cavs got in their way. Then of course, Tom Thibodeau was let go, and the Bulls ultimately missed the playoffs the next year. The team started the 2016-17 year with Jimmy Butler still dominating, and even Dwayne Wade playing well in spite of his age, and they returned to the postseason, despite losing in six to the Celtics. Most teams would've seen this as a positive step and tried to build off it; GarPax, however, decided to completely give up, nuke the team, and start over from scratch, which brings us to the frustrating last couple seasons we've had, and the couple more that are almost a certainty. Yeah the 2019 draft went surprisingly well for the team (especially after how devastated everyone was at landing only the seventh spot), but that seventh title we could've--and should've--won over the last decade is still years away.

      Remember Krause didn’t recruit Jordan. Ppl believe Jerry was this genius but don’t forget they had Jordan. Trust if Jordan wasn’t on that bulls they won’t win one championship.

            The Bulls owed the basketball gods a huge debt they're still paying for with interest

                Why do players not want to play in Chicago anymore, and what happened to GarPax's latest sinking ship?

                                    You should do a video on how you have the amazing ability to recognize NBA players. What a magnificent talent. At least comtinue the story.

                                        Is it safe to say that the 90s bulls superstars had full of egos? Including GM and owner?

                                                              After MJ and Company won a 2nd 3-peat, Reinsdorf and Krause were still pushing those guys out the doors. In early 2010s, Tom Thibodeau got fired for lack of loyalty to the bulls organization, though thibodeau should've been a little more sensitive to the executives. The Bulls hired Fred Hoiberg, and that experiment didn't work either. Then they traded away Jimmy Butler to the T'wolves, another boneheaded move by the bulls. And whose behind some of the demise of this franchise, non other than owner Jerry Reinsdorf

I think the Bulls could've had some really good years again had D Rose's knee injuries not come along. Those were devastating to them and one of basketball's purest scorers the game has ever seen. And speaking of MJ's shot to win the title in Utah, I look forward to Kawhi creating that kind of magic tonight in Oracle. He'll have his legs back under him and I also think Lowry and Danny Green have big nights from 3. Look for the Raps to hit their own 20 3's tonight. Lets go RAPTORS!!!

He made some quality picks, they just peaked in other places. I know Jordan worshipers like to believe he could've played and won for another 9 years, but that just isn't how it works. Krouse did the right thing. Brand and Artest were great picks. Is it his fault Williams and Fizer got hurt? They were rebuilding a young talented team, the plans just got rushed.
