A Skiles & Arenas' Christmas

Tis the 2007-08 NBA season..Just not for the Bulls or their Coach Scott Skiles. The current Chicago record of 9-16 gave General Manager Paxson enough reason to make a change. Unfortunately that change was made on Christmas eve and it was the firing of Coach Scott Skiles. Skiles brought the team to the playoffs in the past 3 seasons. Last season had the Bulls sweeping the Miami Heat in the playoffs before falling to the Pistons. This season's been disappointing for the Bulls to say the least. Skiles said he's not unhappy with the timing and realizes a change needed to be made. According to ESPN the Bulls will go with their assistant coach for now, until GM Paxson makes an offer for another coach, after the season. An early candidate for the job may be Rick Carlisle, former Pistons and Pacers coach.

Merry Christmas to all NBA players, coaches, refs, personnel, dancers and fans! Check out Gilbert Arenas' blog about the cool Christmas gift he received from Anfernee Hardaway.
