Tom Thibodeau Tries to Sweet-Talk Referee Tony Brothers While Mic’d up (Video)

Chicago Bulls Annouce Tom Thibodeau as Head Coach


Head coach Tom Thibodeau is known as defensive-minded disciplinarian and if you watch enough Chicago Bulls games, you’re bound to notice the veins popping out from his collar from time to time when his team isn’t performing as they should.

The Bulls head coach was mic’d up during Game 3 of his team’s playoff match up against the Brooklyn Nets, and he decided to show his funny side by spitting some game to referee Tony Brothers in an attempt to receive some favorable calls.

It didn’t work, but it was cool to see Thibodeau display his sense of humor during an important game.
