I might hate the Bulls because of Noah
that guy won't shut up. He's pretty cocky for a guy thats not an all star. I'm not a Lebron or KG fan but Noah is trying to be a drama queen or something.
He will get punched in the face one of these days. He grew up a spoiled little rich kid and somebody has to put him in his place. Hopefully Shaq will give him one of his flailing elbows to the jaw.
I hope Noah punches LeBron square in the face this series. I am actually sick of LeBron and his dancing and taunting as if he has ever won anything. He needs to learn some class himself. -----from a bitter Bulls fan
i like the little extra talking in the series thats going on makes it more interesting
plus he backed it up today for sure
Noah took a few elbows to the face tonight and still walked away talking so that theory is out the window lol. As a Chicago fans, Ill tell, I COULDNT STAND JOAKIM NOAH!! I thought he was overrated and like one already said, a spoiled rich kid! And then........... He proved me right as the years went on! BUT, I will say this, I am happy to have him on our team. Growing up with a talkative granddad, I learned at an early age how to tune people out and really SEE what they are trying to say. With Noah, if you put your TV on mute for a while, you'll see that hes a hardworker. Bulls are number one in the league in rebounds in large part because of Noah. Hes a good passer, fast, has heart, fearless (as shown tonight) and seems to be trying to work on a lil post game. With a little better touch, he could shape up to be a decent player. As for his mouth, welllllllllll, hes never gonna stfu.
What I hate most about him is bashing the whole city of Cleveland. Even though its true that no one would come to Cleveland on vacation but he didn't need to say that. He is turning into a Terrell Owens type of attitude athlete.
I dont want him to shut up. The Bulls need a little attitude. I like the fact that he has the balls to rip on the golden child and KG. He is just speaking the truth.
Hes definitely going in head first, no doubt, but attitude without heart just makes a punk. His heart is on the court, not out in the media. But I could be wrong.
Hes trying to play this "role" of bad guy, but I can see that its really not in him. I dont think he knows what hes getting himself into. I think he needs to holla at Dennis Rodman and Charles Barkley about HOW to be the bad guy b4 he tries it again. Hes gonna apologize.
You know damn well that if he was on any of your teams you would love the guy.
If he was on the Blazers he would've been traded. The Blazers community won't accept that kind of attitude.
Hes on my team, AND I love the guy lol! Doesnt mean I dont predict an attitude adjustment coming his way
After the past Blazers teammates (i.e. Bonzi Wells, Rasheed Wallace, Damon Stodamire, Ruben Patterson) yall have learned yall lesson and prolly wont let anyone with a parking ticket on their record into the arena LOL!!
Attitude? The guy said Cleveland sucks and KG is dirty...relax.
i hated noah when i watched him beat my bruins in the final 4 two straight years and blowing kisses at the ucla cheerleaders while he was doing it. But ever since he entered the leauge i like him. I read where he called out his teammates his rookie year and got into it with ben wallace. I like that competitive attitude. And it's not like he is picking on easy targets, he's going after lebron and KG here. I like that cockiness as long as he doesnt go overboard and become fake about it.
I see Noah developing better skills. And as long as he continues to develop, his mouth is going to keep going and going. Chi-Town can deal with that, no problem. I mean we had Dennis Rodman! Joakim is AC Green compared to dude
Exactly, he isnt dirty on the court unless someone starts it with him. The guy is super competitive, and like I said, Lebrons fingers are bare. I never saw Kobe or Jordan acting the fool that LeBron does on the court.
This isnt WWF wrestling where the "bad" guy comes in the ring and taunts the crowd.
Tell Joakim that bobbyb. Cuz thats what he thinks hes trying to do.
Lebron is a baby. YEA I SAID IT! But man watching him play the game is something else!
you know how much i dont like lebron, i root for the celtics when they play the cavs. Thats some hatin right there.
I have no problem with Noah! He's one of my favorite players in the league. He's the kind of dude you want on your team in a rough series like this. Kid has heart and leaves it out on the floor.
I agree with Noah in a way. LeBron looks like a fool pre-game, with all the dancing and elaborate high-fives. He should be in the zone, and acting like a leader. Noah calls him out, at least someone does.
Noah has done nothing hasn't even won a round in the playoffs. Seriously a guy who's career high is 10.7 ppg and he's no defensive stopper like Ben Wallace was. Yeah he hustles but so do a lot of guys in the league. Also Barkley a lil out there calling him his favorite player. He had a great game tonight with 25 pts if he does that again in this series I'll be impressed. All that Cleveland talk is stupid he's not good enough to be a villain like Reggie Miller was against the Knicks.
BTW how can you say Lebron has done nothing he's the best player in the league. Sorry all you Kobe fans he's passed him. He'll probably win his 2nd MVP took a team that had lil talent to the Finals in 07. Apparently you missed some of his playoff performances just ask the Pistons, Magic and Celtics players how good he is. Every year the Cavs are right their competing as an elite team for the title mainly becaz of him. Thats like saying Malone, Stockton, Barkley, Ewing and so many greats who didn't win haven't done anything.
I don't think anyone is questioning James' basketball skills, just his demeanor and the way he acts.
If he's Barkley's favourite player he's Barkley's favourite player. The kid plays with more passion then 90% of the guys in this league, and you can't do anything but respect that. Who cares if he can only average 11-12 points a game, he's going to lead your team in rebounds and be your best defensive player. And Frankly, players like that are harder to come by then guys who can average 20 points a game.
maybe u guys are looking into this more than you should
hes just talking smack so what
i think its funny the stuff he does
The Bulls hate chu back...
I hate Lebron bcuz he celebrate after every basketball he make....
You never seen Jordan,Magic,Bird, Kobe or any other great doin shi+ like that
My favorite part of this whole thing is LeBron saying "Noah is just desperate for attention" or something along those lines... Kettle calling the pot black??????
i LOVE Noah for this, hes intense, ON and OFF the court...just because Lebrons the best player on the planet means Noah is just supposed to bow down to him? Its the NBA playoffs, things tend to heat up, and Noah is starting it off right...
havent seen someone work as hard with there mouth, and they do with there game since my boy charles barkley was around... I love noah, and no i would NEVER go to cleveland on a vacation..The city is dirty, and there is nothing to do~
i agree man. lebron acts like hes won like multiple rings with his &$#%#&@! ass dances, when he hasnt!!!!!! hes just a lil bitc*, and noah at least got the balls to say a lil somethin to him.
Im a Cavs fan and I LOVE Noah....He keeps it real, gives his honest opinion that he feels in his heart but at the end of the day he still shows TOTAL respect...He had a great quote today, something like LeBron played incredible and he is "pretty good"(I found that funny but with all their problems he still says that) but im not gonna bow down to him because we are still competing...Dude is really funny too...who would go on vacation to Cleveland? Its really bad.....haha
Cleveland is best known for....The Rock and Roll hall of fame and Bone Thugs and Harmony....So yeah...Cleveland sucks. And yes I cant stand Lebron James, Im a Knick fan and I hope he stays his arrogant ass in Cleveland.
Noah has been playing hard and as far as him not talking. Why do people whine about series not being as competitive and then gets made when you have two teams that are getting into each other and maybe people talking noise against the other. This is what playoff basketball is all about. I think people forget. Jordan, Payton,Barkley,Reggie Miller. Some of you old school guys know what i am talking about. Talking noise and going out and playing hard is what they playoffs is about. Somewhat talking will go home hurt and you will know that both things brought it. Bulls are another solid big man away from being a contender in the East. There are two great piece away from a championship and they have the money.
I actually agree with Knicks82. I would rather Lebron stay in Cleveland. I would rather have Dwyane Wade over Lebron because the Knicks have guys that can score, and he can be a self-less combo guard for us and win us games. The Knicks just lack a super star presence to be great.
WHOA, what are you guys smoking? You would rather have Wade over LeBron? GTFOH
The knicks lack much more than a superstar presence, you throw Wade into that mix and you get a 5th seed playoff team at BEST, in the EAST
Actually can the finger shake after a bucket not considered being cocky? (Jordan)
And when Kobe did it and fell that was hilarious, he should've better acted a fool, really
Well when LeBron gets some rings he can do whatever he wants. For now, he is just a clown in my opinion. He may be the most talented player on the planet but he has made it clear that he wants to be known as the best. Malone, Stockton, Ewing and Barkley are all great players but they never get mentioned in the top 10.
With the increased talent coming into the league, I don't think he will be able to dominate the way The Lakers, Celtics and Bulls teams did.
Plus, the Thunder are going to be a force in a year or two if they keep that core together.
I would root for Durant over LeBron any day.
I agree with DanEboy, though I do expect Lebron to get his first ring either this year or next year. The rings will start coming for Lebron, Jordan got his 1st in year 7, this is Lebron's 7th, so it could happen.
On a side note
Season Series 2010
Cubs up in game 3 though.
Can you say Amare,Bosh or Boozer?
Maybe D.Wade or Joe Johnson?
The Bulls have enough cap to sign any of these guys
