    Jim Boylen update

    One thing you’ve got to give the man is this: he’s consistent.

    Why the Chicago Bulls won’t fire Jim Boylen despite him being the worst coach in the NBA

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    I'm a Cubs fan so I follow a lot of Chicago media types on twitter. If you thought Ute fans were rough on Boylen during his last year here, oh baby, you don't want to see how these people talk about him. They really think he is a complete idiot and have zero respect for him. And these are the media (okay some are semi-professional bloggers and podcasters) who generally have to be more measured than the common fan. Bulls fans HATE Jim Boylen.

    As they should. He's a doofus.

    I wonder what they're paying him.
    One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike -- and yet it is the most precious thing we have.

    --Albert Einstein

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.

    --Richard Dawkins

    Be kind to all, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle.

    The rumor is he got a raise with the extension, and his previous deal was $1.6M with $1M guaranteed.
