Tom Thibodeau said he won't allow coaching the Eastern Conference All-Stars to negatively affect what he want's to accomplish as Bulls coach during the next week.
This is the first time Thibodeau and his staff have coached an All-Star team.
"That's always the priority," Thibodeau said of his responsibility to the Bulls. "The All-Star game is a great event. It's for the league, by the league, for the fans. It's an honor to be there but my priority is with the Bulls. I can manage to do both."
