While a Vinny Del Negro-John Paxson divorce might seem inevitable once the season ends, former coach and current television analyst Jeff Van Gundy believes the Chicago Bulls should stop and think about what they have accomplished this season before making changes.
With conflicting reports about a physical confrontation between Del Negro and Paxson on March 30 surfacing the past two days, it appears the tension between the coach and executive have boiled over. But Van Gundy said the front office and coaching staff could use some stability.
"I know John Paxson -- I don't know what happened in this instance -- but he's a good man," Van Gundy said Thursday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "Gar Forman is a good guy. I think they are both very talented people, and I think Vinny is as well. Before thinking about what's next they should think about what they have in each other because they have some pretty good young players. With another strong draft and a free agent, keep some stability, and they're going to keep getting better. Derrick Rose and Jo Noah are the real deal. These guys are competitive guys. They just need some wingmen who have some more scoring ability."
