It would’ve been easy for Joakim Noah to consider giving up on the 2013-14 season at one point.

After all, the Chicago Bulls were without their best players in Derrick Rose and Luol Deng, and as a result, expectations were low after the team dropped to 12-18.

But instead of focusing on the dismal circumstances, Noah improved every facet of his game and helped lead the Bulls to a surprising 48 wins and the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Let’s take a quick look back at season that was for the Bulls big man, including season stats, memorable performances and a final season grade.

    Hi James, I always enjoy your analysis! Question: when will the Bulls give the talented
    Derrick Rose, the support he needs to win a championship. Clearly as you have stated, he can’t do it alone. Also, the way Derrrick Rose runs, couldn’t that mean more serious injuries for the Chicago Star?

      Hi Valerie and thanks for the response. To answer your first question, the team’s ability to add another scorer to their roster this summer will depend on how much money they have to spend as every team is limited to a salary cap. To answer your second question, I personally feel he may need to make adjustments to his game in order to have a long career. But the front office stated they expect him to return next season without any issues so all we can do is wait and see what happens.
