Now, it's no secret that Mariotti has taken some shots at Reinsdorf before. But he takes his shots a step further today, saying the Bulls may be the dumbest operation in sports.
" No? Since June of 1998, when Jordan pushed off Bryon Russell and flicked his shooting wrist with such finality that he struck a pose for eternity, the Bulls have won exactly one postseason series. They've lost 541 of 863 games, blown more high draft picks than I can count and struck out on the free-agent market, not surprising when early recruiting attempts involved sending the Luvabulls dance squad and mascot Benny the Bull -- the one who's always getting busted by the police -- to greet Tim Duncan at the airport. Four of their head coaches, including current novice Vinny Del Negro, have been undeniable flops, and the only good one, Scott Skiles, was fired when the players fessed up to quitting on him."
So, the simple questions are these:
1. Do you see the Bulls as a laughingstock?
2. How do you see the Paxson ordeal playing out?
