The Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen has revealed he is forming a strong bond with the new front office regime of the Windy City franchise.
(via NBC Sports):
“The relationship has gone really well,” Boylen told Jack Doles of WOOD-TV, an NBC affiliate, in the coach’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., with a question and local angle given to Doles by sister station WGN-Ch. 9 in Chicago. “We communicate every day. I think they understand where we were, what we’re trying to get to. They’ve been very supportive and collaborative. It’s a process to build this team into what it can be. I just like the fact that we have a relationship already. It’s never perfect. Nothing’s perfect. You just work at it. Tell the truth. You get your guys to play hard. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
Chicago’s franchise received a huge amount of criticism from fans the previous seasons, as the team hasn’t made it to the playoffs the last two years. Also, they obviously never had a meaningful impact on the postseason, since Derrick Rose’s MVP year in the 2010-2011 season.
