If we get Amare, do we fire or keep VDN?

I've never been a fan of the VDN hiring. The boneheadedness he demonstrated in the Heat game by having Rose on the bench, a cold Thabo throwing the ball in, and Tyrus not playing the inbounder on the final play, are in my opinion, more than enough to fire him and have angry peasents drive him out of town with pitchforks.

Yet, for the moment, he is still the coach. If we get Amare the Bulls will be entering a new era. It's my opinion, that this would be a perfect time to fire Vinny. If Paxson, Reindorf believe that Vinny won't last his contract, if he'll probably be fired at the end of the season, why pollute the next few months with a lame duck coach? To start the Rose/Stoudamire era with a rookie coach orchastrating what should be an amazing 1-2 punch and continuing to oversee Rose's development seems like a mistake. I'd say fire VDN and let Del Harris, a proven coach who's won COY honors, take the reigns of the new look Bulls. VDN does not deserve the chance to screw this up. I don't want to let him. Just as PHX is firing Terry Porter to give themselves a fresh start with hopefully their Amare-less team, I say we do the same.

However, the devil's advocate would say: VDN already knows Amare from working the front office in PHX. He knows how to tailor the game to best fit Amare's strenghts. He's the perfect man for the job and the trade for Amare would effectively  let him "start the year over". Besides, if the trades works as commonly proposed, now he wouldn't be able to put Thabo in at the end of the games or start Drew Gooden over our best power forward.
