“But you have to remember: I hated the Bulls growing up. I was a Knicks fan. I was in (Madison Square) Garden when Michael Jordan wore No. 45 and scored 55. I was a sad little boy.”

—Bulls center Joakim Noah, when talking about the possibility of him being the first Bulls center to be an All-Star since Artis Gilmore, and the history of the Bulls with the Chicago Tribune.

Noah is all in with the Bulls now, but that wasn’t the case when he was a child, bouncing around the globe with his tennis star father.
