The Chicago Bulls just keep losing, and the fan base wants answers. There are plenty of fingers to point, but who or what deserves the most blame?

The Chicago Bulls just dropped two close games, dropping them to 11th in the East in a season that started with a rare front office promise that they were now a playoff team. In a previous article, I went against a large swath of the fan base in claiming that Jim Boylen has little to nothing to do with the Bulls losing record.

But when a franchise struggles, heads must roll. So if not the head coach, which heads should roll for the Bulls?

In that previous article, I laid out four points that were more pressing than the head coach for the team to address in order to start winning, and I’ve added another one to make it five.

I fully believe the Bulls are heading in the right direction with an overtime loss against the 3rd place Miami Heat and a 1 point loss to the 5th place Toronto Raptors in the last two games. A handful of possessions would make all the difference, but the ball did not fall our way, leaving us here with these five problems we absolutely must address or continue to address in order to turn this season around.

Above all things, I am a man that prefers people that come to the table with solutions over problems. In the following slides, I won’t just lay out the 5 most important reasons the Bulls are losing with statistical evidence (of course) to support my claims, but will also provide some common sense solutions that could overcome these shortcomings.

Here are the 5 biggest reasons for our losing record thus far, from least important to most important.
