Paxson & Forman sitting out the back smiling & clueless, glad the fans are directing their anger at this ‘Garpax’ guy and not them

Pax has build couple of winners in CHI? What winners Kellerman? Pretty much decade passed since last winner.

Things like that are only reason why I still come on this board.

I feel so dirty calling for someone to lose their job, but this is the nature of the business. If you don't perform in choosing and developing a winning product, then the fan base will wonder why.

I just want transparency. Don't blow smoke. We're not dumb. I want a team that doesn't just follow what the league is doing. And if they do, they at least know how to do it right with the right leadership.

This is just awesome and I would have loved to join in there!

I don't feel bad for them, they are set for life. I hope this is the beginning of a lot of noise from the #FireGarPax front. Go for it guys n gals I love it!

That was far more impactful than any blog article or billboard .

When you hear it from the people themselves on a national stage, that is huge. There is no way to gloss that over.

Proud of real Bulls fans reppin on First Take. You the real MVP.

This is like a bizarro All Star hosting.

Typically, it's supposed to be a showcase of your city, your team, your talent. A chance to impress the top talent in the NBA.

But for us, this will be the best chance we'll get to embarrass Reinsdorf and GarPax on the national stage. Hopefully to the point of regime-change.

Definitely don't feel dirty. Even if these guys run into money problems in the future, Jerry will bail them out. And, nobody and I mean almost no one has had such a pass in the sports world(forget the real world) where they kept their jobs even after screwing up in their jobs for so long or accomplishing almost nothing. Paxson without Thibs has made 1 second round in almost a dozen years. And, most of the playoff appearences as the 8th seed in the leastern conference.

I am pretty sure the moniker "GarPax" came from this website. In effect, realgm bulls fans are the cutting edge on a lot of this and the casuals are in contact with the die hards through multiple channels.

I'll give internet points to the person who finds the first ever usage of the term "GarPax" on the internet. Again, I strongly suspect it was here.

Actually IIRC, it started out here as Gar Paxson, then sometime later started getting shorted to Gar/pax

He would look great as somebody's Robin. It's too bad the Bulls lottery luck took them out of contention for Luka, Zion, or Ja Morant.

I know GarPax know what their reputation is with Bulls fans but how pissed off are they by these chants on national t.v.? It's one thing to shrug off these chants are a dog day game with few people watching, but to see fans go on national tv and call for your termination? Man, GarPax must be not just angry but embarrassed. At least John still has the shot against PHX to fall back on with Bulls fans, what does Gar have?

These kind of chants have to happen all weekend. Get CM Punk fans level chanting during the weekend. Embarrassed the Bulls FO all weekend.
Goodbye....Someday.

I looked at blogabull because that was the only spot that was as active as we were back then and I see they didn't use GarPax in an article until 2010.

Just imagine this man as Rose's Robin before the ACL...

It’s interesting because no one I talk to knows who is on the Bulls but everyone will say GarPax has to go. Lol. I mean the two headed monster is our biggest draw.

I'm pretty confident it was us.

Not sure if it was me. I had a schtick in college of combining girlfriend / boyfriend names into one word to tease people. My favorite was a guy nicknamed "Dude" and his girlfriend Jodie who I referred to as Dudie when together as a couple.

Yeah, I was a d1ck.

Man they threw some hardballs at Zach but he handled it flawlessly.
