Fittingly, it was while Ron Adams walked by Joakim Noah at the Berto Center on Friday morning that the second-year big man only half-jokingly stated a simple goal for this season.

Reading this article makes me wonder if the writers, coaches, and management are making excuses for Joakim Noah's poor conditioning. Del Negro says that he gets winded easily because of the "adrenaline rush of being a young player and not being able to control your emotions." Skiles attributed this phenomenon to nervous energy. Really? What about smokin' weed all summer long? Could that have anything to do with hime getting winded easily? Noah says,"I get my conditioning back pretty quick." Yeah, once he comes back to the Berto Center and lays off the Mary Jane for the season. NBA players should realize what they have; a career that practically everyone else would kill for. The solution is simple. Quit smoking pot during your career and then when you retire, get high everyday and enjoy your millions.

A column about "No-Shot Noah???????? He is a bench player. He is not nor will ever be a NBA quality starter.

Capt Klank Hinrich, the circle dribbling clock eater is also a bench player, not a leader and tooooo slow to be an NBA starter!

Vinnie BOOM-BATZ the Bulls new leader will hopefully put these two highly over rated players where they belong, on the bench...

Alex, you should be the GM of the Bulls since you're not clueless and know so much about basketball.

And I agree with you Curt. Noah, lay off the weed and make your money first.
