The Chicago Bulls are reportedly seeking to make some big front office changes soon. Will any changes be worthwhile? Or will it be more of the same?

The NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 hosted by the Chicago Bulls was supposed to be an unveiling of sorts. The city would usher in the best of the Association, prove it is the mecca of basketball and of course, serve as an unofficial presentation to the league’s upcoming free agents that the franchise is ready for the brightest of stars to lead them back to basketball glory – if there was one willing to take on such a task.

Some of that did, in fact, happen. For one weekend, the basketball world fixed its gaze on the Windy City. The stars, from Hollywood and basketball alike, descended upon Chicago and the league served up it’s best All-Star game it’s had in a generation.

But all is not well with the Chicago Bulls. The weekend only served to highlight the team’s shortcomings. Fans and analysts alike did not hold back on their criticism.

Chicago fans expect more than a mediocre team with an ownership group that shows only passive interest being annual contenders.

The team limped to the break with a 19-36 record, far below expectations. Chants of “Fire GarPax!” rained down from disgruntled fans all weekend and shortly before tip-off of the NBA’s midseason spectacular, reports surfaced that Bulls ownership might actually be considering some sweeping changes.

Or, maybe they won’t be so sweeping. Here are three thoughts on whether the expected moves will really make a difference for the future of the Chicago Bulls.
