Tom Thibodeau to Coach in the All-Star Game

With the Bulls clinching the best record in the Eastern Conference through All-Star weekend, Tom Thibodeau will officially coach the Eastern Conference in the 2012 All-Star Game in Orlando, FL.

When asked about it, the team as a whole were very supportive of Coach Thibs. Kyle Korver said, “It’s great. I just hope he doesn’t play Lu and Derrick 40 minutes.” Coach Thibodeau called being chosen an honor.

    I’d use the word “coach” loosely. It’s the best players in the NBA: they’re not going to listen to anyone nor play defense.

    Still cool, though, that Thibs got the honor.
