Chicago fans have had enough.

After a tumultuous offseason, Bulls fans have drawn a line in the sand, with many fans funding to erect a billboard reading '#FIREGARPAX' (referencing Bulls managers Gar Forman and John Paxson) in the middle of Chicago.

You may be thinking 'Isn't this going a little too far, fans campaigning to get the team's GM's fired?', but honestly, I can't blame them.

Just this offseason, GarPax have traded star Jimmy Butler to Minnesota for almost nothing compared to his value, essentially gave a draft pick away to Golden State, and let point guard Rajon Rondo walk from the team, not to mention trading Taj Gibson midway through last season.

"That was the final straw," campaign-starter Brendon Henderson told the Chicago Sun-Times' Madeline Kenney. "I decided to do something about it."

Henderson made $8300 from a GoFund Me campaign from Bulls fans all over the world who felt the same way as he did about the team's management.

"If I had something to say to the Bulls' front office, I'd say it's an absolute ignominy for front office to have little to no progress," he said. "Whether they have a change within themselves or there's a personnel change within the front office, something has to be done."
