This post almost came to fruition after the embarassing first two games, but tonight's chokejob takes the cake. Momentum clearly started changing in the middle of the third quarter, yet Skiles sits on his hands and refuses to make any kind of adjustment. You have an athletic freak, Tyrus Thomas, just sitting on the bench. Skiles refuses to put him in and sticks with waste of space P.J. Brown. Chauncey Billups and Tayshaun Prince both start getting hot on Detroit's end of the floor. You have Thabo Sefolosha ready, who contained one of the best players on the planet in Dwyane Wade during the Miami series. What does Skiles do? You guessed it, stays the rocky course and never dreams of making an adjustment. I haven't even touched on the first two games, where Skiles' crew watched Detroit conduct an offensive exhibition.
I'll readily admit Detroit to be the better team who should win the series. However, they have no business sweeping a team as talented as the Bulls. Yes, Skiles helped turned the Bulls back into a legitimate NBA playoff team. However, these three games have proven the Bulls need a change if they want to take the next step and compete for championships.
