PHOENIX -- Right at the beginning of All-Star weekend, a rumor surfaced that Bulls' GM John Paxson was considering stepping down right after the break. Questionable sources aside, it's been a rough couple of seasons in Chicago, so it wasn't out of the realm of possibility that Paxson had decided he'd had enough.
As it turns out, Paxson is staying. He said so himself, which should put to rest any and all rumors to the contrary. But during All-Star media availability, Phil Jackson was asked about the situation, and told reporters about a certain personality trait of Paxson's that might have contributed to the thoughts of resignation crossing his mind. Video of Phil's comments, after the jump.
