Whenever sporting fans don’t support their latest coach, an influx of negative reviews follow and make it challenging for that leader in moving his respective team forward. This was once again proven with Jim Boylen, Head Coach for the Chicago Bulls. It was reported that the General Manager and Head of Basketball Operations have begun delegating with team personnel on Jim Boylen. The response obtained by Marc Eversley and Arturas Karnisovas hasn’t been overwhelmingly positive.
Mixed responses have forced the Reindorf Family to respond on this situation, with these individuals owning the Chicago Bulls. They’re onboard with retaining Boylen for the foreseeable future, with some of the players also wanting Jim to remain as their head coach. Their influence is minimal since giving decision authority to Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley, possibly prompting the termination of Jim Boylen before the 2021 NBA Season.
The Head of Basketball Operations was questioned by the Chicago Sun, a local newspaper outlet that’s infamous throughout America. They requested by Arturas Karnisovas thinks of Jim Boylen and his future with the Chicago Bulls. Karnisovas noted that his initial impression of their Head Coach was positive, with him showing incredible faith behind the Chicago Bulls brand. Then Arturas remarked that a comprehensive evaluation would be implemented for all departments under the Chicago Bulls. Those found to be unnecessary with being repositioned or terminated, which could include Jim Boylen.
The National Basketball Association terminated seasonal operations on March 11th, which followed after the COVID-19 Pandemic broke through the American healthcare system. The NBA is expected to cancel the 2020 season entirely after COVID-19 cases in the USA exceed past 1+ million. Terminating all NBA Games for 2020 will force the Chicago Bulls and other teams to re-evaluate their workforce. It should be mentioned that the NBA Outfit hasn’t shied away from terminating loyalists, with Fred Hoiberg being fired after five years of service. Fred lost his position of Head Coach after not obtaining 5th place or higher in the standings. Jim Boylen hasn’t accomplished this goal either, causing the speculation for his potential termination.
