    Re: Joakim Noah arrested for pot

    He is just so easy to root against! I could find myself liking Billy Donovan coached teams...but I couldn't warm up to Florida when Noah was there...spoiled brat!

    I really hope the Bulls draft Beasley so they can ship Noah off to some remote outpost of the NBA. I agree that Noah is the biggest reason I couldn't stand Florida for 2 seasons.

    I know it's wrong, but I am very happy.

    Anyone else want to kick the guy in the junk, while he was dancing after they won the championship?

About the only thing they have done good is ship Ron Artest out before he had a chance to screw up. Their good players are shipped out when they start to blossom and then they make trades like Lamarcus Aldridge for Tyrus Thomas.

    Re: Joakim Noah arrested for pot

    Based on what was available for the Bulls at the time and their positions of need, I don't think he was a horrible draft pick. I predict he'll have a better stint with the Bulls than Ben Wallace -- but that's not very hard.

    I actually thought it was illegal to play in the NBA and not smoke pot.

    Re: Joakim Noah arrested for pot

    I'm not surprised either. I didn't like the pick but he did have a heck of a 2nd half of the season as a starter once they traded away Big Ben and he was a pretty decent pickup for fantasy stats too. He's definitely better than Ty Thomas (why again did they trade away Aldridge for him?)

    Will be interesting what happens now. Paxson is a no-nonsense GM and has dumped guys before for image reasons. They banned headbands for awhile after some of the "thugs" they had like Eddy Robinson wore them and had some run-ins with this issue when Wallace tried to wear one. Can't imagine that Paxson is too thrilled about this incident.

    The problem is, if your gonna cut a guy from an NBA team just for smoking pot, you're gonna have a heckuva time fielding a full roster.

    Maybe the Bulls will like this, as it will allow them to shed their "thug" image for the improved, "laid back, hippy" image.
