Bulls GM Gar Forman praised the team’s new SG Rip Hamilton Thursday as a great team player capable of rallying teammates whenever necessary, even when he believes a mutiny against his coach is in order as he did last season with the Pistons.

“I was really impressed with the way Rip handled that team mutiny last season,” said Forman. “That’s the kind of veteran leadership this team could really use. To be able to get all your teammates behind something like that in this day and age is really telling about the kind of guy Rip is.”
