Tonight’s score notwithstanding, Bulls are the hottest thing smokin’ right now on the Chicago sports scene. People are paying attention to the Bulls.
And Bulls fans can attest to the value in putting public pressure on an organization with an eye on making some much-needed and long-awaited changes. So, who better to ratchet up the heat on the #FireNagy campaign than Bulls Nation:
We have loud "Fire Nagy" chants at United Center during Bulls-Pacers game.

Because the #FireGarPax brigade worked so well, why not try it on the football side of things? I mean, all that’s done is led the Bulls to hire Artūras Karnišovas and Marc Eversley in a total revamp of the front office. That led to firing Jim Boylen and hiring Billy Donovan in what had proven to be a significant upgrade. And eventually, it opened doors for an explosion of transactions bringing in Nikola Vučević, Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan, and Alex Caruso to help lift all-star Zach LaVine. Not to mention all of that had the Bulls atop the Eastern Conference entering tonight’s action.
So basically, Bulls fans are trying to save the Bears now.
Whether or not this moves the needle remains to be seen. But on a day when things were getting U-G-L-Y at Halas Hall, the noise from the United Center should be heard loud and clear.
