Source*: Tom Thibodeau Might've Dated Kate Upton (*Source = Thibs)

The Chicago Bulls are 22-21 this season, but they don’t really have much of a right to be. Derrick Rose went down with a (probably) season-ending knee injury early, they traded away Luol Deng, and several other players have been in and out of the lineup. They’ve pressed on nonetheless, and Tom Thibodeau’s squeezed every ounce out of his team — and more.

However, that doesn’t mean that everything is all well and good in the organization. In November, Adrian Wojnarowski described a schism between Thibs and the front office, and there have since been various rumors that this season will be the head coach’s last in Chicago.

Nevertheless, when asked to address Doc Rivers’ assertion that the Bulls would fall apart without him, Thibodeau quickly deflected the subject. “Obviously I have a lot of respect for what Doc does say, but every day there is something else going on,” he said, via CSN Chicago. “Now the rumor about my date with Kate Upton, a rumor started by me, I’m not commenting on that either.”

The two would form one-half of a very attractive couple.
