He allowed it to happen. It also got rid of Bogut. Skiles can put blame on himself for the roster that he helped build.

I dont care how the rest of the season turns out. Best case scenario, this gives us a spark getting rid of the dictator Skiles and guys just play and we end up with the 6th seed playing Atlanta. Worst case we barely miss the playoffs and get the 15th pick in the 1st round.

All I am expecting from Boylan is a more consistent rotation that involves more Henson, more Tobias, no Daniels. Not too much to ask

Lowe sure seems quite enamored with the coaching wizardry of a guy whose offenses have generally stunk everywhere he's been.

Have any of the insiders heard that it was Skiles that quit?

The rumor is that Skiles came to Hammond yesterday and said he wanted out and that it took all day for Kohl to OK it.

Anyone else hear this?

Ersan doesn't seem mentally tough, so the coaching change may be good for him.


Agreed. Ilyasova's a bit of a delicate flower. I'm guessing he's not bummed to see Skiles gone.


Or he realizes that spacing is kind of important.

By "he" are you referring to Ilyasova or Boylan?

I wonder how long Bogut was laughing when he heard about this news today.

"That's a question it's not easy to answer," Skiles said. "Absolutely (he was committed). That's the absolute bare minimum I owe the franchise."

From the sounds of the bulls fans in this thread, Boylan is even worse then Skiles, but he was pretty good with giving the young players some burn. That's great for us because our young guys will get PT hopefully, and we can end up with a decent draft pick.

A breakup was definitely needed and looks like it's worked out great for him if he ever gets back on the court but I'd be interested to get his take on it - if not for Skiles I'd say 99% he's still a Buck.

Was my first thought to being a Bogut fan. I wonder if he called up SJAX and had a chuckle with him too.

Bulls fans are concerned that we are in the market now for a top lotto pick....
