Or why he didn't offer MJ part ownership of the Bulls?
Please try to be a bit more constructive. I'm not likely to get an answer if I ask those types of questions, which simply translate into heckling. Aren't you at all pleased with the team he has assembled? I'm a big Krause support just so you know, so much so infact, I'm going to try to get him to sign a bulls basketball for me.
In retrospect the Floyd hiring was a bad one. But his first two years here, he got props from his players and from other coaches, he simply had no talent on his team. Last season everything fell apart and I was happy to see him go. The way I look at it, the Floyd hiring protected BillC's mental health in that he didn't have to endure all that losing as a head coach, not to mention that BillC wasn't ready to coach the Bulls at the time of Floyd's hire. This in and of itself made the Floyd hire worth while. In effect he kept the seat warm for BillC.
As for your last question, offering part ownership would be Reinsdorf's call not Krause's. And even then, Reinsdorf would need to get approval by the owners of the Bulls.
