Chicago Bulls Weekly: Joakim Noah Continues To Lead Charge Towards Postseason

The Chicago Bulls have continued to play well in spite of the fact that most people had counted them out after the Luol Deng trade and there was talk among the fan base that the team should consider tanking the season to secure a high pick in the upcoming draft. Of course we knew that would never happen under Tom Thibodeau’s watch and Joakim Noah has helped the team remain relevant in a weak Eastern Conference. Not only is the Bulls big man having his best season, he has become both the vocal and emotional leader of the franchise, which means this team will never go down without a fight in any contest. Following a 2-2 record over the past week, the Bulls are 35-28 and trail the Toronto Raptors by a half game for the third spot in the conference playoff race. But enough about postseason talk for now, here is a look back at the week that was for Chicago, including game recaps, game balls along with other news and notes.

    Joakim Noah is doing great. He deserves to be the team leader. I don’t think Derrick Rose should come back this season.

      Appreciate the response, and I could not agree more with Noah becoming the face of the team this season. I wouldn’t put too much stock into Rose returning this season. The team ruled him out, and even though he may eventually practice, the chances of an early return are very slim.
