vinny del negro would have been fired already except for one small problem. chicago's front office cannot find anybody to take the job. issel is a native of batavia, illinois. everyone in colorado knows issel is having major financial issues. bernie bickerstaff is the #1 assistant coach and has turned down the position. could this be the perfect storm for issel? the bulls do have talent, play in the eastern conference, the home town hero returns to turn around the home team. issle left illinois in 1966. after 44 years away from home can old #44 return and save the day?
