Started by a fan upset over the direction of the franchise under executive vice president John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman as a Go Fund Me page, a #FireGarPax billboard went up on a building at the corner of Lake and Racine on the Near West Side of Chicago back in 2017.
To be blunt, Bulls fans want Paxson and Forman fired. They have for years.
However, it doesn’t look like they are going to get their wish, at least not this offseason. Both Paxson and Forman are expected to return in 2020-21.
The Bulls are 19-36 on the season heading into the All-Star break. They are on a six-game losing streak and the playoffs are starting to look like a lofty goal for Chicago despite Zach LaVine’s scoring prowess.
Tuesday was a perfect game to illustrate the Bulls’ issues. LaVine poured in 41 points against the Washington Wizards, but Chicago lost 126-114. The Bulls just don’t have any scoring threats outside of LaVine right now, especially since Lauri Markkanen is out due to injury.
The day that Paxson and Forman are fired by the Bulls will be a historic one for some Chicago fans, as there are plenty of people in The Windy City who are literally counting down the days.
