Here is a link to this, BTW: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2015/01/...sfp=1319426690

You are right, JNR, that Woj likely isn't getting info from inside the Bulls front office, however Woj does get a ton of info from players & agents. I would think if players were getting worn thin or tuning out Thibodeau, Woj would hear something from someone in the locker room.

Also let's be careful not to muddle 2 different issues here. Sheridan says the locker room is tuning him out. In the past it's been that there is friction between Bulls management & Thibs. I don't reallly see how the 2 are related, except perhaps that if the former happens, the latter could be the tipping point to parting ways. But I believe Woj has earned the right to believe him, that players aren't tuning him out right now. And if that's the case, it would be WAY too preliminary to let go of Thibs.

Heard Woj on the radio today and he basically said that every team gets tired of their coach(es) over the course of the season and that this was probably happening with Thibodeau.

I think he's right and I think Sheridan's sources overstated the case.

I loved Popovich's comments on the issue...

Quote:
"He's not gonna lose any team," Popovich said before the game. "I think you guys just have to have stories. So somebody loses a few games, there's got to be a reason. I guess that's the one that was picked. Sometimes players listen to me. Timmy [Duncan] stopped listening to me a long time ago. I don't even coach him. You guys think I'm kidding. He just plays. I talk to him once in a while, but sometimes some guys don't want to hear it.

"But as far as the team and being lost and that kind of thing, that's not what's happening here."
I've also seen people saying this is like the Scott Skiles situation before he was let go. I've always thought the Skiles comparisons were off base. For starters Skiles had the Bulls at a losing record early in the season before getting fired, something like 3-8. The two situations really aren't comparable. Hopefully beating 2 good teams in a row will silence this issue for a while...IMO, that was the players' way of going out there and telling the media to put this issue to bed.
