Don't do it, Pax.

I know you want to. I know it's the easy thing to do. I know you probably made up your mind months ago. But firing Vinny Del Negro would be a mistake that will come back to haunt you and the Chicago Bulls.

Nine times out of 10, I'm a John Paxson guy. I liked the way he played, liked the way he did color commentary, and generally have liked the way he's run the Bulls as general manager and now executive vice president of operations.

But Paxson and Del Negro are almost certainly headed to basketball divorce court because of supposed irreconcilable differences. Dumb move. Find a marriage counselor.
