NBA: Joakim Noah thinks the Bulls might be the most interesting team in the NBA - ESPN (http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/preview2010/insider/news/story?id=5707707&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go .com%2fnba%2fpreview2010%2finsider%2fnew s%2fstory%3fid%3d5707707)
"I reached out to LeBron, but he did not reach back out to me," said Noah at the time (free agency). "He did not want to talk to me, which is fine."
When asked how he feels about James, Noah is diplomatic: "I have a lot of respect for LeBron and his game. But does that mean I agree with some of the things he does? No."
"I'm sure a lot of people want them to suck, but I guarantee they will not suck. I have to be ready for when LeBron gets that rebound and brings the ball up the court and passes to D-Wade, who will be trying to dunk in my face on TV in front of millions of people. I can't be thinking, 'Well, there's only one basketball.' The Heat are coming, and they're going to be good."
