After their first-round exit from the playoffs this year, it’s easy to let it slip your mind that they’ve posted the best regular season record in the NBA the last two seasons. Of course, losing the reigning MVP in your first playoff game is going to make things tough, but some think the Bulls may have missed their window.
Don’t tell that to Joakim Noah though. The Bulls’ center thinks his team will be ready to compete at the top again once they get Derrick Rose back.
"Obviously, it was a tough break for us, but we're going to bounce back,” Noah said. "Right now, people are sleeping on us, and we're all right with that. We know at the end of the day, come playoff time, we'll be ready to go."

CSN Chicago released a new commercial featuring Bulls superstar, Derrick Rose, recently. In the short 16 second clip, Rose is seen sitting at a conference table with CSN sportswriters who feverishly type away at his every movement, to which he responds: “Did you guys just blog that I’m eating a hot dog?”. Guilty!

Joakim Noah joined “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd in studio on ESPN radio Thursday afternoon to promote VitaCoco, a 100% coconut water. Aside from the promotion, Joakim talked about his loyalty to Chicago, doubters, the Miami Heat, being “sleepers” this upcoming season and his “little brother” Derrick Rose:

Joakim Noah likes the Bulls' chances despite the expected loss of Derrick Rose for most of next season.
Its been awhile since we've heard from former Chicago Bull and Iowa State Cyclone Marcus Fizer. I mean he hasn't played in the NBA since 2006 and hasn't played professionally since 2011 when he played in Taiwan.
Now it appears as if his former car is now up for sale on eBay for only $10,000.
That's a pretty good price considering the owner said that $20,000 worth...
