Some might think I'm going to gloat over the firing of Scott Skiles, but you couldn't be further from the truth.

Though I wrote last month that the Bulls players were tired of Skiles, I also wrote in the same column that he's a good coach.

It was never personal, just a fact. Skiles responded by calling me a "lazy guy,'' but I had talked to enough people to know that the players were indeed tired of him, no matter what they said publicly.
