Paxson insists rebuilding Chicago Bulls are in better spot

CHICAGO (AP) John Paxson insisted the Chicago Bulls are in a good position. And the Bulls' top executive hopes they are never in this spot again.

"We did this year what we felt was in the long-term best interests of the Bulls," Paxson said Thursday. "It's not a situation that any of us want to ever be in again. It goes against everything as a competitive person that you believe in, but it's the way the system is set up. To be very honest, we believe we've done it the right way."

The Bulls went 27-55, their worst record since the 2003-04 season, and missed the playoffs for the second time in three years. But they are staying the course after going all-in on rebuilding.
