Vinny: Rumors of my firing have been greatly exaggerated

Vinny Del Negro isn’t worried about all those rumors of his impending doom. In fact, he finds them kind of amusing:

“It’s just funny to me. There’s really nothing to say. You have all these people that have rumors, and everyone has their sources. It’s just not accurate. I don’t have time to deal with rumors. I talk to Gar and Pax every day. They’re at practice every day. It’s just that you got to deal with those things. It’s unfortunate. Everyone has their source. No one’s sources so far have been very accurate. My focus is getting the team ready for [Tuesday’s game] against Indiana.”

Maybe Vinny and Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith should form a support group.

At any rate, what else could Vinny say? “Yep, I’m done. Who wants to go get shots at the Billy Goat?” The bottom line, as always, is that the current coach is still the coach until he isn’t the coach. Maybe Vinny is suffering from a case of denial, but I’d much rather have him remain upbeat than see him tying a hangman’s noose on the Bulls bench.

    It’s not vinnie’s fault that paxson and riendork is too scared to make a move to improve this current roster. He would win with a better roster.

    That is not true at all. He gave up one of the biggest leads in history to a crapy team. He is a horrible coach and we will not be able to attract any big name players why he is the coach. If you have not noticed we are saving money for fa class. We have tried to get tmac, duncan, and kobe in the past. Its not that he is scared to upgrade the roster as much as they dont want to come to chicago, and no trading away all of are role players for a star insnt the answer. Even stars need help
