Jim Boylen's tenure as Bulls coach began with a near-mutiny.
He survived, but apparently his relationship with players has improved only so much.
Zach LaVine has most visibly butted heads with Boylen, but it's unsurprising LaVine isn't the only player with issues. Boylen comes across as a blowhard. Most importantly, he has shown no ability to get Chicago to reach a higher level of play. The Bulls are 25-57 under him, including 8-16 this season.
But Chicago management keeps backing Boylen. It seems more likely the axe will fall on general manager Gar Forman.
