The Bulls have called a 4:30 (ET) press conference today for a "major announcement" involving Tom Thibodeau. I trust that you're perceptive enough to figure that out.
Thibodeau entirely changed the dynamic and perception of the Bulls, making them a defensive menace en route to a league best record of 62-20.
And it wasn't all easy. Thibodeau had to endure substantial injuries to starters Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer along the way. Having Derrick Rose obviously helped, but Thibodeau's defensive system somehow was able to succeed despite a couple of below average defenders. That's some coaching right there.
Thibodeau of course is a rookie coach coming from Boston where he was an assistant. Prior to that he held an assistant gig with the Knicks. He was passed over multiple times for head coaching positions but eventually the Bulls saw the potential in Thibodeau and rewarded him with the head coaching job in Chicago. Good move, I guess.
