The Chicago Bulls Announce Their New Head Coach!

After much speculation and anticipation, the Chicago Bulls hire....

Vinny Del Negro??????

Is this a joke? The Bulls have one of the youngest teams in the NBA, and that is about to get younger with their upcoming #1 pick in the draft. So what does John Paxson do?

Hire a coach with--literally--no coaching experience. Literally. None. He's the Suns Assistant GM right now. He was a VP of Player Development. Before that: TV announcer.

So this should go really well, in other words.

The only thing in the Tribune's article that even caught anything remotely approaching "interest" was the following paragraph:

Del Negro was born in the birthplace of basketball, Springfield, Mass. His father, Vince, played basketball at Kentucky for the legendary Adolph Rupp.

Sweet. I guess it fits two of the things that are listed in the "Job Requirements" section of the Monster.com job posting for being a head coach in the NBA:

1. Father must have played for a historically great college program.
2. Must be born in Springfield, Mass.

When you look at it that way, I guess the pool of people to pick for a head coaching spot probably is pretty small. Great hire, Johnny!


On a totally unrelated note, the new Apple iPhone is out. It looks incredibly sweet, and is now only $199. And they're going to put out an all-white version, which will be even more badass.

It's not out until July 11
The only thing the Bulls coach needs to do this season is make sure they pick Beasley.
