Doug Collins, a former Bulls coach, was named senior adviser to John Paxson, who formerly executed the team's general manager duties. If this isn’t the end of coach Fred Hoiberg and GM Gar Forman, you can see it from here.
Collins, however, declared “under no circumstances’’ will he coach the Bulls again, and I’m thinking, no, wait, we were hoping Hoiberg would be the one saying that.
Here’s the thing: Collins makes players better, especially young players. Can you say that about Hoiberg?
Stop. Sorry. Forget it. Unfair question.
I love Collins. I love hearing him talk basketball. It spills out with ease and precision. And quickly. Always quickly....
