Joakim Noah Spent Time Working With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE

Joakim Noah could be one of the league’s best centers if he ended up with a consistent post move. It looks like the Chicago Bulls star decided to go to post school to learn a move or two and who better than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to learn from?

This might end up being a great thing for the Bulls and for Noah.  Noah is a very good player but he really is not consistent on offense.  He can sometimes knock down the open jumper but a refined post game will help him become a better overall player.

It might take a bit of time to see all the effects of working with KAJ, but it should pay off this season.  The Bulls are going to need Noah to step up his game while the team treads water until Derrick Rose returns from injury.  If Noah can put up 15 a game, that will certainly be a big help in the long run.

Who knows, this could be exactly what Noah needs to make the All-Star team.  The center spot in the East is not exactly dominant so he has a chance to make the team now.  The Bulls have struggled to have a consistent presence in the ASG, so getting an improved Noah will certainly help with that.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Pau Gasol Puts "Shake and Bake" On Kobe Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls squared off on Thursday night, so naturally all eyes were on former teammates Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. The two had a nice embrace prior to opening whistle, but it was strictly business once the game got started. Don't believe me? Just check out this "Shake and Bake" executed to perfection by Gasol.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
