Noah suspended, Bulls shouldn’t have trouble with Celtics

I missed tonight’s Bulls vs. Sixers game so no feedback this time.

 Joakim Noah was apparently suspended for tonight’s game by the team for getting into a verbal altercation with assistant Ron Adams.  I don’t know what to think about that.  It must have been pretty bad for them to suspend him though, unless they were just being tough on the rookie.

The next three games are against the Spurs, Rockets and Celtics, all on the road.  The Bulls desperately need to win two of those games which of course means beating either the Spurs or the Celtics.   I guess we can chalk up the Spurs game as a loss and depend on beating the Rockets and the Celtics.  Houston is supposed to be playing better without T-Mac but I think Chicago can still win that one.  And the Celtics just lost to the Bobcats, so the Bulls should be able to deal with them easily.  Comments please . . .

    They might be able get the Rockets, even though they’ve been playing well without McGrady. As for the Celts and the Spurs, those are gonna be two L’s.

    I agree that they’ll have trouble with the Celts and the Spurs. In fact I think they’ll have trouble with all three. I mostly posted that they wouldn’t have trouble with the Celtics in order to get ornery Celtics fans to post over the top responses. I’ve had a lot of success with that in the past.

    If ever game were against the Pistons, you guys would be looking at the playoffs right now… Gotta say I still don’t understand the Bulls taking Noah with that pick. Energy guys can be had with late first round, early second round picks (see Jason Maxiell and Arron Affalo with the Pistons, hell even Jerome Williams back in the day was a late first rounder). Noah may be a “winner” but that just seems to be translating in whining and missed free throws.

    Noah is really more talented than people give him credit for. I didn’t think he had as much talent as he does when they drafted him. He’s an excellent passer, runs really well for a big guy, great help defender, even a pretty good ball handler. The only thing he can’t do is shoot and he’s only so-so at posting up. Still worthwhile to have on the team. Plus, unlike Maxiell or Jerome Williams, Noah is a good 7′.

    The only reason I agreed with drafting him when they did is because nobody better was available. It may turn out to look like better players were there, but knowing what we knew at the time he was clearly the best talent left.
