2) Front office concerns

The Bulls' vice president of operations John Paxson and General Manager Gar Forman have to be in the running for the league's worst front office award. They'd probably lose it to Ernie Grunsfeld, but their puzzling moves have had many fans and league executives scratching their heads.

They gave Jabari Parker a $20 million contract which decimated their cap space for a season, when instead that could've been spent on taking bloated contracts for draft picks. They fired Hoiberg at a very weird time, and they promoted Boylen, an assistant for multiple teams (and who apparently thinks he's a Popovich clone) to the job without any hesitation.

That is not a good sign. An even worse sign is that the Bulls have cycled through six coaches in their tenure, and #FireGarPax is usually trending after Bulls games.

Forman, in particular, receives a lot of justified criticism. After all, he did draw up a couple of plays for the team that "looked out straight out of some high school sh*t".

Instead of constant coaching changes, Jerry Reinsdorf may want to clean house this offseason if the Bulls are to covet any free agents in the market. I heard David Griffin had LeBron's seal of approval. Just saying.
