D-Rose & Popovich Dismiss Rumors Tom Thibodeau Has Lost The Locker Room

Tom Thibodeau, Derrick Rose

This seemed ridiculous, which is why we didn’t report it earlier this week. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Bulls point guard Derrick Rose think so, too. Earlier this week reports flitted to the surface that Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau had lost his locker room and his overbearing, almost militaristic zeal for working his players had disenchanted some members of the Bulls, who had started to tune him out.
