Report: Jim Boylen remains unpopular among Bulls players




 

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.

Sam Amick and John Hollinger of The Athletic:

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.
