There have been recent rumors of this season being the last for Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. But when questioned during the pregame press conference Friday night at the United Center, he refused to give an answer saying, “I’m not going to comment on rumors you guys [the media] start, and then you wait for me to respond.” Clippers counterpart Doc Rivers stated the Bulls would fall apart without Thibodeau. “Obviously I have a lot of respect for what Doc does say, but every day there is something else going on. Now the rumor about my date with Kate Upton, a rumor started by me, I’m not commenting on that either,” Thibodeau said with a laugh. A potential date with a model might be a good idea for the coach.
