Taking the Bulls By the Numbers: Gar Forman edition

NBA GM isn’t a gig that requires competence.  Here’s the latest instance.  Gar Forman is the personnel decision maker for the Chicago Bulls and he won a share of the Executive of the Year prize as voted by the other 29 GMs.  Three of them, yes 10% of the electorate, voted for John Paxson who was kicked upstairs to an empty title two years ago.  In other words three GMs don’t even know who to call in Chicago to talk about a trade.  That’s particularly noteworthy since Forman’s Bulls rose from 41 to 62 wins this season.  You’d like to think that every GM not named Pat Riley might have taken a good look at the club to see how they did it.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
