I met Chuck last year at a Bulls event where he was speaking to a group of us, and in that conversation the idea of him taking over for Neil came up, and I inferred from the conversation that he would be interested but didn't think he would be offered. I could have inferred incorrectly of course, and it was a year ago so things also change.

I'd root for him to get a chance if he wanted to do it though.

I interpreted his comments the same way. He would like the job, but’s it’s been made clear to him they will be looking elsewhere.

I know it will never happen but what about Paxson either replacing his old partner or even better retiring with him.

Time to take funk and put him out of his misery.
