Playing against DeMarcus Cousins is frustrating enough for opposing big men on its own. But when the officials fall for his antics? We’d be prone to lose it, too. After being called for a questionable foul in the third quarter of his team’s game against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah threw a todder-like temper tantrum that resulted in a technical foul.

Joakim Noah On Coverage Of Rose’s Injury: “Everybody Needs To Chill The F**k Out”

Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose wasn’t on the court for the final two minutes of Chicago’s 100-93 win over the fellow 7-2 Raptors last night. His hamstring didn’t feel right, which he thinks is probably just a cramp before an MRI scheduled for today. When Bulls teammate Joakim Noah was asked about Rose, he got emotional about his teammate’s journey back to the court after appearing in just 10 games over the previous two seasons and just five of their nine games so far this year.

Joakim Noah

Apparently there are lengths to which Joakim Noah is unwilling to go to get an edge on his opponent. After Chicago Bulls teammate Pau Gasol studied film of a recent game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors to prepare for their team’s Thursday showdown against Kyle Lowry and company, Noah quipped that he “wouldn’t watch that s***.” Read More »

The Top 20 Centers In The NBA Right Now

Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah

The true center is a dying position, but big men haven’t been completely scrapped in terms of their relevance and impact in the NBA. Despite being erased from the All-Star ballot two seasons ago, when you peruse a box score the position is still manned by someone — even if only in name.

The league has a laundry-list of talented big men, but we wanted to ascertain who might be the best at the center position, so we compiled a list of the best in the NBA today. What you will find here are the names of players manning the middle who are important to their teams based on both previous history/accolades and potential impact this coming season. Stats and analytics tell the story for some, while untapped talent and opportunity tell the story for others. It’s all relevant. Read More »

Nene, Teammates Suspended For Leaving Bench During Monday’s Pierce/Noah Spat

Nené

Suspensions surely aren’t what Paul Pierce had in mind when he recently stressed a mindset of toughness and physicality to his new Washington Wizards teammates – especially when the players in question weren’t even involved in the incident. After Nene, Dejuan Blair, Daniel Orton, and Xavier Silas left the bench while Pierce tangled with Joakim Noah during Washington’s exhibition against the Chicago Bulls on Monday, the league has suspended the Wizards quartet for the first game of the 2014-2015 regular season.

Paul Pierce, Tom Thibodeau, Joakim Noah

The Bulls and Wizards re-acquainted themselves tonight after going at in the first round of the playoffs last season as the No. 4 and 5 seed in the East. New Wizard addition Paul Pierce has already endeared himself to the Wiz faithful while continuing to be an annoying jab in the side of the Bulls, particularly center Joakim Noah, who probably still has the imprint of Pierce’s index finger on his forehead. We’ll explain after the jump. Read More »

Joakim Noah On Nikola Mirotic: “He’s A Hell Of A Player”

Nikola Mirotic

Pau Gasol and Doug McDermott are bigger names than Nikola Mirotic, and the 2014 Spanish League MVP has flown somewhat under the radar as a result. But if Joakim Noah’s glowing sentiments are any indication, Mirotic might be the Chicago Bulls’ biggest offseason acquisition after all. Read More »

Video: Joakim Noah Flubs First Pitch, But Nails Second

Joakim Noah

Bulls center Joakim Noah was at Comiskey Park earlier this week to throw out of the ceremonial first pitch. Hoping to avoid the indignity of some previous first pitches by NBA players, Noah warmed up in the bowels of the stadium before coming out.
