Why Fred Hoiberg failed with the Chicago Bulls

Fred Hoiberg arrived in Chicago hyped as an offensive guru who could modernize the Bulls, but the team's lack of coherent vision and leadership ultimately led to his downfall.

Today, Paxson was asked why — since Gar Foreman was an unabashed fan of Hoiberg's and instrumental in his hiring — he wasn't addressing media. "The belief that Gar solely made that decision was wrong and always has been," Paxson said. "I was 100 percent on board with hiring Fred. Jerry and Michael were 100 percent on board with hiring Fred. I work with Gar every day. I understand his internal value to this organization. As far as speaking, I'm the spokesman as the executive VP of the Bulls. Gar has a role. We work in tandem together. We make decisions together. But I'm the person who will stand up in front and talk about why we do certain things. That's just the way it is. It's not that he's not talking because he doesn't want to. It's because I choose to speak for this organization. And I feel passionately about his role with us. We've made some great decisions in terms of young personnel the last couple years. And as we have the opportunity to make more decisions, he'll be front and center. We'll work in tandem and we hope to do the right thing...Gar is absolutely safe."

John Paxson addresses why they chose to let go of Fred Hoiberg now instead of the end of the year: "A couple things that I will say about the decision of why we made it and why we made it now. We were in a similar situation last year at this time: poor record, we had some injuries, Zach was not playing yet, we had the incident in training camp, so we didn't have a full roster. But the entire energy about this group was different back then. And we felt that here in the last several weeks, that something's different. And what we're lacking is kind of an energy and a spirit about our team, and we need to get that back. It's not as simple as saying we would have gotten that with healthy players, with Lauri coming back, Kris Dunn coming back, Bobby coming back. It wasn't going to be that simple. It was more than that. We need to find a spirit to our group that's been missing and missing for quite some time."
