Noah: Chicago Bulls Are “Hungrier” This Season
There is a temptation to write off the Chicago Bulls this season. After all they will be without MVP Derrick Rose for the first fourth or so of the season, even by the most optimistic of projections. They are missing the second unit that pushed them to great heights over the last couple of seasons, and the new faces are struggling to fit in. Still, despite some additional injury setbacks, starting center Joakim Noah believes the Bulls are going to be competitive right from the start.
“I’m excited,” Noah said in an interview with WSCR in Chicago. “I think we’ve been working really hard. A lot of people are sleeping on us. We’re a team that’s been through a lot, dealt with a lot of adversity, especially with what happened to us in the playoffs last year. I really felt like we were set to make a run at it, then injuries happened, which sucks. But we’re hungry, hungrier than ever, and hopefully Derrick gets back in time and we can make a run at the end of this.”
