Sources: Bulls VP Paxson shoved Del Negro

Quote:
After a loss to the Phoenix Suns on March 30, an irate Paxson walked into the coach’s office at the United Center and confronted Del Negro over a narrow breach of a management-imposed minutes limit on injured forward Joakim Noah. Sources said Paxson first grabbed a hold of Del Negro’s tie and seemingly tried to provoke him with two successive jabs into his chest. Paxson was even heard to angrily challenge Del Negro to a fight.

There were several staff members present, sources said, and assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff stepped between Paxson and Del Negro and pulled Paxson away.

Sources said Del Negro did not retaliate, mostly out of fear the incident could be used to void his contract without pay or hurt future career opportunities elsewhere. The Bulls have dispatched lawyers to interview witnesses about the incident, sources said.

would've been interesting to be a fly on the wall

but seems a very unprofessional thing for Paxson to do, especially challenging Del Negro to a fight

I guess Pax spent too much time around Rodman back in the day?

Another source is saying that Del Negro might've been the one doing the shoving. Saw this on ESPN.

It's not easy being a coach.
Seems like there's hostility from all sides.
