Bulls VP Denies Report of Internal Feud
In a Yahoo Sports story published Sunday, the relationship between Bulls general manager Gar Forman and coach Tom Thibodeau was described as a ‘‘distrust’’ and ‘‘downright disdain.’’
Forman and Thibodeau haven’t always seen eye-to-eye on personnel moves, which has been well documented, but (Bulls VP John) Paxson takes exception to the idea that it’s a feud heading toward a boiling point.
‘‘We’re so far past that,’’ he said. ‘‘To continue to try and keep it going, I don’t know what the agenda is. That’s one thing that we all talked about, really from the beginning of this year: No one has any agenda here.
‘If you’re really going to say something like that, then go on the record, be a man, put your name out there. Don’t hide behind that stuff. But from our perspective, from our seat, we’re doing great. The relationship is healthy.”
