Breaking news: Chicago Bulls to fire Forman, Paxson, and Hoiberg
Gar Forman and John Paxson have fired the first shot of the NBA offseason

It hasn't hit the major media outlets as of yet, but the Chicago Bulls have decided to fire General Manager Gar Forman, VP John Paxson, and Head Coach Fred Hoiberg.

Apparently, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf simply cannot deal with paying the NBA Luxury Tax for a team that is doomed to miss the playoffs.

Obviously this is an absolutely huge story, and all the details aren't known as of yet. I'll update this story when I know more.

UPDATE, 7:45 PM CT: After spending most of my day on Twitter, some of it sleeping, and parts of it watching TV, I finally have an update...

It's April 1st, hope everyone had a great April Fool's Day.

    Bullsville

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
