Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.”
Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option.
Still he went to the old but true “it’s not something I can control” cliché when he talked to ESPN Chicago.
“It’s part of the business,” he said after a charity event at a local elementary school on Wednesday afternoon. “It’s something that happens in sports and right now I just got to get ready and control the things that I can control as a player, and that’s getting ready for the season. As far as I know I’m still a [member] of the Bulls today.”
“I understand what kind of caliber of player Carmelo Anthony is,” he said. “I’m trying to stay positive. I’ve had some talks with [Bulls GM] Gar [Forman] and [John Paxson]. I’m really excited about the upcoming season. … I can’t control what happens in the situation, I think a lot of these questions that [media members] are asking me, you guys should ask the people that make the decisions.”
So far the Bulls are refusing to put Noah in any deal for Anthony. They’re doing the right thing.
