The Chicago Bulls were really good for a little while there. With Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, and Luol Deng leading the way, the Bulls had some elite seasons ... like, better than whichever team LeBron James was on at the time. But in every instance, Noah's Bulls ran into LeBron on one of his many runs to the NBA Finals.

Like so many other LeBron victims, Noah developed a beef with The King. What made his unique? Well, for one, he was a much better player in his prime than some other irritants. And besides that, Noah's personality is distinct: Annoying, yet sensitive; prone to dishing out disrespect, but also liable to react when disrespected. All that adds up to several playoff runs full of grappling, bickering, and trash-talking the city of Cleveland. It's a pretty good beef.

"Noah, Rose, Deng leading the way" wow, the D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T to Ben Gordon is galactic..... Those classic playoff stretches the Bulls had during those years, Gordon LEAD the team in points, and was the focal point of the opposing team's defensive strategy, still nobody could stop him, he was absolutely ELITE those few years

Never understood the slander agains the city of Cleveland. People hype up Chicago, NYC, LA, Miami but all of those cities are the most overrated cities in the country, if not the world. In fact, every big city has its nice parts and bad parts. That’s just the way it goes.

As a die-hard Bulls fan. We loved Joakim Noah to death. Our rivalry with Lebron and his teams was the highlight of each season this decade for the Bulls. We never beat him but it was definitely the best of times

People forget how good Noah was, and that 2011 Bulls team. A few more pieces and that would've been a championship run.
