With all that Derrick Rose has been through and had to endure injury wise, it’s hard to imagine him playing…well, we don’t know how long he’ll play, but you know he’s not going to be around forever.

Joakim Noah is in the prime of his career, as he’s coming off a season in which he was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Of course, he hasn’t been anywhere near as dominant as he was last year, and he’s missed significant time. This was to be expected as Noah had knee surgery in the off-season.
In the 82 game grind that is the NBA season, you would expect a veteran, coming off a major off-season procedure no less, like Joakim Noah to miss some time. That’s not news. What is interesting is the way the widely held perceptions of Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau is being altered now, via the allocation of Noah’s minutes.Follow paulmbanks
